Meanwhile, Manchester's win was a momentous one, as it was not only their first Champions League trophy, but also gave them the coveted continental treble, secured when a team wins three trophies in a single season, the second English club to do so after Manchester United in the late '90s.

While the Oscar-winning star admired Manchester's win from afar, a thrilling outing she was able to have with her children was a Taylor Swift concert.

At the time, she told Extra TV that she had taken her kids to see the singer beforehand, explaining: "They had never been to a concert before and they were big fans." She added that the 33-year-old hitmaker was "very sweet" with the kids, before turning to Julia with a request of her own. 

"She said, 'Would you mind coming on stage during the song and dancing?' and I said to my children, 'What do you think?' 'Oh, Mom, you have to do it!' and my youngest son said, 'Only do it if you want to, Mommy.' It was so sweet!"
