Julia Roberts might be one of the most famous celebrities with twins in Hollywood. Her smile and laugh (does Pretty Woman ring a bell?) are completely recognizable. She has had an extensive career in Hollywood dating back to 1988. She had fraternal boy/girl twins named Hazel and Phinneaus in November of 2004. Roberts also has a singleton son named Henry born in 2007. Can we all agree that her kiddos got some cute names?
