Julia Roberts' new movie is a family affair

Thursday April 19, 2012

Julia Roberts has revealed her latest movie was a real family affair.

The actress produced Jesus Henry Christ, starring Toni Collette and Michael Sheen and directed by Dennis Lee.

Her husband Danny Moder was the film's cinematographer, while her sister Lisa Roberts Gillan also acted as producer.

"My husband's the cinematographer on the movie, he was actually the first one that Dennis approached for the movie," she explained at the movie's Los Angeles premiere.

"I just saw it on his desk one day and said 'what is Jesus Henry Christ? That's a great name.'"

Valentine's Day star Emma Roberts, who is both Julia and sister Lisa's neice, also turned up to lend her support at the film's Hollywood premiere.

Jesus Henry Christ tells the story of a 10-year-old boy genius who goes in search of his biological father.
