Roberts watches Man U draw with West Ham
Takes to the pitch with family after the game
Rubs shoulders with players and their wives
Hollywood star Julia Roberts was an unexpected guest at Manchester United’s Premier League home game against West Ham on Sunday.
Swapping the red carpet for the Red Devils, the Oscar winning actress was joined by her family – including her husband, cinematographer Daniel Moder.
The 49-year-old Roberts, one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces who has starred in films such as “Pretty Woman,” “Notting Hill” and “Eat Pray Love,” was seen talking to Coleen Rooney, the wife of England captain Wayne Rooney, and injured United midfielder Michael Carrick.
The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with United boss Jose Mourinho sent off for reacting angrily to a refereeing decision.
Diafra Sakho opened the scoring for West Ham in the second minute, before Zlatan Ibrahimovic headed home Paul Pogba’s cross in the 21st. But six minutes later, Mourinho was sent to the stands for kicking a water bottle in frustration after Pogba was yellow carded.
Although it wasn’t the outcome United fans had been hoping for, it was all smiles for Roberts and her three kids, who were invited onto the pitch after the game.
