Julia Roberts and Halle Berry — which one is the prettiest?

OK, so Julia Roberts is Pretty Woman, but can she compare with Catwoman?

Roberts told InStyle magazine she once asked herself the same question as she reflected on the evolving nature of her looks for the cover article of the magazine.

"When I was younger, I'd think, 'Oh, I'm the prettiest one. It's not Halle Berry. It's not!' But it is, you know?" she said. "I think I've always sort of been on the more boyish spectrum of girls. For example, I've never been chosen as 'one of the top-five hottest actresses in a bikini.' And honestly, it's a godsend."

The 46-year-old beauty conceded that with a few more years under her belt, she tends to spend a little more time on perfecting her look.

"I certainly think about it more now. It used to be a friend could call me at three in the afternoon and say, 'I have a premiere tonight. Will you come?' And I'd just take a shower and go. I wore a lot of vintage then. I had a navy military jacket and striped leggings I wore all the time. Those were the fun old days. People were less judgmental, less searing in their assessment of what you dare wear to the drugstore," she lamented.

At the same time, the Oscar-winning actress says she enjoys getting all dolled up for the red carpet now more than ever.

"The fun now is getting together with my friend and stylist Elizabeth Stewart, whom I adore," said Roberts. "She brings such great ideas and choices to the table. When I know I'm seeing Elizabeth, I put on the most impeccable outfit. She'll go, ‘This is great!' And I'll say, ‘I dressed just for you'," The 46-year-old gushes, adding that she likes to get her family involved too. "Often I'll let the kids look at my outfit choices and say, ‘What do you like better—this or this?' I just try to not take it so seriously. And it can be stressful on the red carpet. So it doesn't matter how much you dress up or bejewel yourself, you've still got to feel like you."
