She's been vigilant at keeping her children away from the spotlight.
But on Saturday, Julia Roberts turned a mens clothing launch into an impromptu family photo op.
The 47-year-old posed alongside husband Danny Moder and their rarely seen three children - 10-year-old twins Phinnaeus and Hazel and eight-year-old Henry - at a party for surfer Kelly Slater'sOuterknown fashion line in Malibu.
The Oscar winner seemed in great spirits as she flashed her trademark smile in the promotional snap, which is in stark contrast to how Roberts often behaves when photographers try to get a pic of her young brood.
Back in 2010, Julia went on the offensive and got in a paparazzo's face after he tried to get photos of her children while walking down a Los Angeles street.
Three years earlier, the Eat Pray Love star infamously chased down another photographer in her car until he pulled over. She then argued with him for snapping pics of her kids at their school.
Luckily, this weekend no photographers were harmed in the taking of this Roberts family portrait.
