The next leading lady in Hollywood? I can't see any that can open a film by themselves like Jolie and Bullock can today. I also believe Resse Witherspoon was the next Julie Roberts anyway and her time is up.

Pretty clear that Jennifer Lawrence is (deservedly) being built up to be the new "big" actress.

Anne Hathaway was set to be, but she's proved to be better than that.

I never liked her but her image is that of someone who is good looking but does serious Oscar type stuff as well , given that I'd say Amy Adams . But Amy adams is waaay better than Roberts .

Poor Amy while tremendously talented is a bit long in the tooth to be The New Julia I would've thought. Hope the Superman movie does well for her though.

Anne Hathaway, because they both have twice as many teeth as the average human

Not Jennifer Lawrence - she's far better than Julia Roberts.

I would have said Reese Witherspoon or Sandra Bullock.

The next Julia Roberts? Someone who is all fake smiles and "America's Sweetheart" and then when you ain't looking, stabs you in the back?

Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman. One of those three.

I don't think a new Julia Roberts is needed. She is still an A llister, hugely successful and has 2 new projects out this year and next!
I don't think anyone can replicate the huge success she achieved in the 90s and early 2000s. Very big shoes to fill and no one has really ever come close.

You already said that in the first post. Why did you needlessly bump up the thread?

I'd say Amy Adams.
She is gaining a lot of momentum, consistently putting in good performances, and will possibly become more widely known as a star name who is a big pull at the box office in the next few years.

I think she's a very good actress indeed and has already shown that she can carry a film.

But I wouldn't make a direct comparison with Julia Roberts, as she seems more like Nicole Kidman than Julia Roberts to me. But if you mean a primary leading actress that film makers fall over themselves to get in their film then my money would be on Amy Adams.

I just saw the post above and am very surprised that she's 39. She looks a lot younger. But I wasn't considering that the OP was talking about being like Julia Roberts age-wise.
