We join Chopard’s global ambassador Julia Roberts on the set of the luxury jewellers’ TV commercial directed by James Gray. While filming in Julia’s adopted hometown of San Francisco, Greg asked her what inspired her when she first set out on her creative path.

‘I never thought of acting as a kid. I was surrounded by creative people but I was always the audience to it. 

‘The first film that really made me take note of acting and how powerful it can be was Becket, starring Richard Burton and Peter O’Toole. I was in high school and I do not know why exactly, but it just stayed with me. I think it was the beginning of wanting to be connected to that form of expression.

‘I am inspired by so many people in this industry and not in this industry, too. I have a deep appreciation for all types of creative efforts.

‘I am as excited today going into a project as I was 30 years ago. Partly because it is all new every time. A new universe to puzzle out and explore.’
