Roberts says no to sequel

LOS ANGELES: Actress Julia Roberts is not interested in doing a sequel to her hit romantic comedy Pretty Woman because she feels nobody wants to see an ‘old hooker’.

Roberts, 42, is best known for playing prostitute Vivian Ward in the popular 1990 movie that had Richard Gere in the male lead.

The actors subsequently re-teamed for another romantic comedy, Runaway Bride in 1999, but despite movie bosses’ best efforts to bring Pretty Woman back for a follow-up, Roberts is adamant she will not be signing up, reported “Nobody wants to see an old hooker. It’s not that I’m anti-romantic comedy, which, for some reason, is always the favoured interpretation. I like being funny, I like being romantic... but it’s challenging trying to find a script which is original or interesting,” said Robert. — Agencies
