Julia Roberts and Coleen Rooney looked like the very best of friends when they bumped into each other at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. Casually hanging out with their families on the pitch, the pair appeared to be in great spirits as they chatted away after the Manchester United and West Ham game, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Julia, 49, was joined by husband Danny Moder, and their twins Phinnaeus and Hazel, both 11, and nine-year-old son Henry. The Hollywood actress ditched her red carpet glamour for comfortable attire, consisting of a tailored black coat and matching jeans. She wore her blonde tresses in tousled waves, while allowing her natural beauty to shine through with minimal traces of makeup.

According to Manchester Evening News, the American star's children are believed to be big Manchester United supporters. During their appearance on the pitch, Julia could be seen happily taking several photographs on her phone as her kids played football. She later stopped to pose for a picture with United veteran midfielder Michael Carrick.

Meanwhile, Coleen - who was no doubt showing her support to husband Wayne - cut a stylish figure in a maroon-coloured tweed blazer, which was teamed with a coordinating blouse and Chanel handbag. She was with her sons, seven-year-old Kai, three-year-old Klay and ten-month-old Kitt.

It seems her eldest son appears to be taking after his dad as he is already showing an interest in becoming a professional footballer. "It's up to him if he does it - I wouldn't be too bothered either way," the father-of-three recently told MailOnline. "If he does, that's up to him. Certainly every day he's obsessed by football, and every day he asked if I think he's good enough, so I'm sure he'll have a go and see if he can."
