Before Julia Roberts was Julia Roberts, I met her at a 1989 press junket for Steel Magnolias in a Manhattan hotel. It was her second major role, but her first junket. She and her co-stars— Dolly Parton, Sally Field and Shirley MacLaine—were playing musical chairs with tables of journalists, and by the time she showed up at ours, the ingenue was a selfconscious wreck.

THE WEEK THAT WAS
