Julia Roberts admits THAT hairy underarm reveal was not a feminist statement

She became somewhat of a feminist icon when she revealed her unshaven underarms at the Notting Hill movie premiere way back in 1999. 

But, almost two decades later, Julia Roberts finally addressed her hairy display as she chatted to Busy Phillips on her show Busy Tonight on Sunday, admitting it wasn’t supposed to be a political statement at all and was merely wardrobe miscalculation. 

The Oscar-winning actress, 51, made headlines when she revealed her hairy underarms while waving at fans at the hit romcom’s London premiere, and paved the way for a number of celebrity followers, including Ashley Graham, Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga.

However, Julia admitted it wasn’t her intention to make a statement about beauty standards and still distinctly remembers the furore. 

She confessed: ‘The picture is vivid in my mind actually, from that, from that moment. 

‘I think I just hadn’t really calculated my, my sleeve length and the waving, and how those two things would go together and reveal personal things about me.
