Julia Roberts' portrayal as a photographer in new movie Closer was so spot on, it has earned her a cover shot on prestigious lens magazine AMERICAN PHOTO.

The actress graces the cover of next month's (JAN05) issue and agreed to give the magazine an exclusive interview about the time she spent on the other side of the camera.

She was thrilled to be asked because, as she told editors, she's a fan of the magazine and reads it religiously. Her husband, cameraman DANNY MODER subscribes to the glossy.

In the interview, Roberts reveals she rarely takes family pictures because her husband is a master with a camera, but she plans to take lessons so she can snap her twins PHINNAEUS and HAZEL.
