About the Role: Roberts is Anna Scott, an actress who does impulsive things now and then. She’s also not afraid to open her heart, only to realize that it gets broken a couple of times. When it’s the right man, though, nothing will stop the two of them from being together. They just have to realize that in their own ways.

Simply the Best: Notting Hill is another movie that has effortlessly stood the test of time. Who hasn’t watched the romantic comedy and falling in love with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant together? There are some of the most iconic scenes in movies, used regularly now in other TV shows and films.

While on the outset it is a typical rom-com, there are layers that it offers to make everyone smile. It’s one of those movies you can put on when you’re feeling sad and watch away. By the end of it, you know that love is all you need to overpower everything.
