Kiefer Sutherland praises Julia Roberts for annulling the marriage more than 25 years ago.
When Sutherland was only 24 and America’s sweetheart Roberts was 23, the two were engaged. Julia called off the wedding and left him for his friend – Jason Patric.
In the recent interview with on the People/Entertainment Weekly Network, Kiefer said that:
“I think she was being realistic for herself. I think that’s much better..We were young and we were both very much in love, we had decided that we wanted to get married, but then this other thing kind of took over”
Julia Roberts was in the height of her fame with the movies like “Pretty Woman”, and “Runaway Bride”.
“She was arguably the most famous woman in the world, and this wedding that was supposed to be something between the two of us became something so big…And I think it took a lot of courage, even amongst all of that other stuff, to be able to say, ‘I can’t do this.’”
