Watch video footage from the premiere

In the last few years Julia Roberts has taken time out from the movie scene to concentrate on being a mum to four-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and son Henry, one. She was back in the limelight this week, though, teaming up with Clive Owen at the London premiere of their joint effort Duplicity.

Her presence at screenings these days is rare – she's taken to the red carpet for only a handful of unveilings in the past couple of years. And indeed Julia admitted to having a touch of the jitters as she got ready for the Duplicity event.

"I made three different outfit changes before coming out tonight, I was actually really nervous," said the actress, who finally settled on a classic black Dolce & Gabbana trouser suit.

In the crime thriller, Julia and her 2003 Closer co-star Clive - who was accompanied to the screening by his actress wife Sarah-Jane Fenton - play a pair of corporate spies who share a steamy past. They hook up again to pull off the ultimate con job on their respective bosses.
