From the young and raw Vivian in Pretty Woman to the calm and composed Liz in Eat, Pray, Love, Julia Robert's life has come a full circle - both professionally and personally. Not one to mince words, the talented actress is known for speaking her mind.

This time she has spoken up about a cause that needs much attention - beauty standards. Sharing a make-up free selfie on her Instagram account, she said:

Perfection is a disease of a nation. We overlay our faces with tons of make-up. We get botoxs and even starve ourselves to become that perfect size. We try to fix something but you can't fix what you can't see. It's the soul that needs the surgery. It's time that we take a stand. How can you expect someone else to love you if you don't love yourself? You have to be happy with yourself. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, it's whats on the inside that counts. Today, I want to put up a makeup-free photo. I know I have wrinkles on my skin but today I want you to see beyond that. I want to embrace the real me and I want you to embrace who you are, the way you are, and love yourself just the way you are.
