ShoWest to honor Roberts

First female Int'l Star of the Year

Julia Roberts will become the first female to receive ShoWest’s International Star of the Year Award at this year’s annual exhibition convention in Las Vegas.

Roberts, whose films have collectively earned almost $2 billion worldwide, will accept the honor at the Bally’s Hotel on March 12.

Most recently, Roberts starred in Sony’s 1997 hit “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and the Richard Donner-helmed thriller “Conspiracy Theory.”

The actress, who skyrocketed to stardom in 1990 based on her performance as a streetwalker in “Pretty Woman,” has also starred in “Steel Magnolias,” “Flatliners,” “Sleeping With the Enemy,” “The Pelican Brief,” “Something to Talk About” and “Mystic Pizza.”

She was Oscar-nominated for her work in both “Magnolias” and “Pretty Woman.”

Roberts has recently completed shooting Columbia’s as-yet-untitled Chris Columbus-helmed pic with Susan Sarandon and Ed Harris, which is set for a holiday release.

Previous International Star of the Year awards have gone to Tom Cruise and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
