Julie Walters Has Gotten Picky About Her Roles: “Now I choose things if they sound really good fun”
Julie Walters, our lovable Molly Weasley, has gotten pickier about the roles she portrays on the big screen. Enjoying the time she spends at home, she’s become more selective in the jobs she takes that would pull her away from her husband and many pets.
Living on a 300-acre estate, Walters has a miniature farm of her own, including pigs, cows, sheep, chicken, and a vegetable patch. She’s enjoying the estate and the relaxing life with her husband Grant Roffey.
Although Walters has been accustomed to the glamorous life of Hollywood, she says dressing casual at home in track suit bottoms is the way to go.
I do love nice clothes, but I never get a chance to wear them. There’s no point — we’ve got dogs; you come in, and they jump up. You can’t have a pair of pristine trousers on.
Things I’ve worn to B[AFTA] have still got paw marks on them. I remember turning up at a B[AFTA] thing and looking down at my feet and thinking, ‘Oh no, I’ve got mud on my dress!’
Because of her relaxing life, according the the Evening Standard, Walters chooses the roles she wants to portray based on the types of things she “fancies.” Being a famous actress, she’s been offered numerous roles, but they take her far away from home.
I just pick what I fancy. You take jobs when you’re young because you think, ‘This will be good for my career.’ Now I choose things if they sound really good fun. I do get offered lots of things, but for the most part I’d really rather be at home with my husband.
