The famous Hollywood actress said that she is connected with the famous fighter for the rights of African Americans Martin Luther King Jr. It turned out that Martin Luther and his wife Coretta paid the hospital bill for her birth. Obsev writes about this.
The actress spoke about this in an interview with journalist Gail King. It came as a surprise to her fans that she and her family are so closely related to the famous rights activist's family.
Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter, Yolanda, made great strides in acting and she went on to become a well-known actress, and the parents of Julia and Erica Roberts helped in this when they accepted a black girl into their school.
But Yolande still had a hard time. When she played in the theater in 1965, someone blew up the car during the performance at the entrance, and the audience began to throw stones at the stage. In addition, Roberts' parents received threats.
So when Julia Roberts was born in 1967, her parents could not pay hospital bills. They didn't ask King for money, but the politician and his wife stepped in to help.
“The King family paid my hospital bills. My parents couldn't pay the hospital bill. My parents had a theater school in Atlanta, which was called “Actors and Writers' Workshop. And one day Coretta Scott King called my mom and asked if her kids could go to school because it was hard for them to find a place that would accept her kids. And my mom said, “Of course. Come. “So they became friends,” said Julia Roberts.
Gale noted that this was an extraordinary act for the 1960s. And he certainly made an impression on Julia afterwards. “That's right,” the actress confirmed.
