Julia Roberts made EW’s Power List

AGE 34

WHY HER Despite the piddling $2.5 million gross for the Steven Soderbergh-directed ”Full Frontal” and an image-tarnishing courtship with hubby Danny Moder, she remains Hollywood’s biggest female star. Acknowledging her competition, she and her producing partners Deborah Schindler and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas put together the romance ”Maid in Manhattan,” starring J. Lo. Meanwhile, J. Ro returns to grinning glory next year in the collegiate drama ”Mona Lisa Smile,” which teams her with actresses who would be Julia (Kirsten Dunst, Julia Stiles) as well as director Mike Newell.
