Showbiz has lost magic:Julia Roberts

The 42-year-old beauty, who recently converted to Hinduism, admits the industry was much less ruthless 20 years ago and she feels sorry for the young stars who have just stepped into the spotlight, Contactmusic reported.

"It has to be very confusing and difficult to be a young woman in Hollywood today. The focus is so surgical on these girls - on everything they wear and every little detail on their lives in a way that I think is kind of negative," Roberts said.

Roberts shot to stardom in 1988 with the teen film 'Mystic Pizza', and quickly became one of the most respected and highest-earning actress in Hollywood.

"I don't know how they handle it. It has to make you feel insecure and you want to cave in on yourself or you prevail because you have good parents, good values and you protect your inner self. It's got to be hard. Showbusiness itself has changed and it's not treated in a treasured, magical way any more," she said.
