A rare over 100-carat yellow diamond

The latest episode of Chopard Loves Cinema, an exciting new campaign showcasing the Maison's shared love of cinema with its muse and global ambassador, Julia Roberts, follows the actress and her world-famous smile at the Cannes Film Festival. Spreading her signature joie de vivre, she wears a timeless Red Carpet Collection necklace with a magnificent, over-100-carat fancy vivid yellow diamond pendant.

An icon as you have never seen her

This is Julia Roberts in action, joking around off-camera, spreading her radiant joy and playful spirit. She knits, finds something nice to say about everyone, slips into trainers under her glamorous dresses, takes over the camera herself, and interrupts her script rehearsal to cuddle her dog Myrtle who affectionally jumps on her lap.

Devoting herself whole-heartedly to this game, somewhere between improvisation and script, Julia Roberts recalls her favourite memory of the Cannes Festival. It was with Chopard, in 2016: “The first time I was there, running late and racing down the hallway. Somebody was still sewing me into my dress, so we were all running down the hallway to the elevator and somebody was sewing away. And I just thought ‘It’s so classic’. It was a “Cannes”-Do moment.”

In this way, Julia Roberts is captured by the camera as the embodiment of a fulfilled woman. By filming these stolen backstage moments, James Gray has the ability to show in front of the camera what is going on behind the scenes, which is precisely what breathes life and magic into all the Feel-Good films for which Julia Roberts has been so successful.

Adorned with her Chopard jewellery and enlivened by the confidence it instils in her, Julia Roberts brings her unique magic to the set. Making a film is above all about ensuring that everyone feels good and acknowledged, therefore finding their own place in a shared adventure that leaves no one on the sidelines.
