FACT: Julia Roberts Hospital Bill Paid For By Martin Luther King Jr & Coretta Scott King

Did you know when Julia Roberts was born, her parents could not afford the hospital bill, so their friends Martin Luther King Jr and his wife Coretta paid for the bill. This was Julia’s first brush with celebrity and greatness all before even taking her first step.

In a interview with Gayle King, the Hollywood actress blushed when Gayle brought this hidden piece of information up and threw Julia Roberts off. This had the internet buzzing with so many comments of bewilderment. Julia’s parents ran a acting workshop and were one of the only places to accept Martin Luther King Jr’s children back in the 60’s when racism and segregation was at an all-time high. This lead to Julia’s parents getting lifted out of a jam by the King’s.
