Julia Roberts' characters - Love quotes and Marriage proposals

Non je ne vais pas m'entretenir sur ce qui se passe dans mon pays meurtri, j'en ai perdu mon latin. 
Ce matin, j'ai envie de parler d'amour et non pas de guerre. 

J'ai envie de parler d'amour à travers les citations des personnages d'une grande femme. La femme la plus naturelle au monde, c'est comme çà que je la conçois. Son naturel a fait d'elle l'actrice la mieux payée aux USA, tant mieux pour elle si son pays paye le travail et le naturel, le nôtre paye la lézardise et le superficiel.
Son naturel a fait d'elle également, mon idole de jeunesse. Ses personnages ont façonné ma manière d'être et ont contribué à créer des liens forts avec ma soeur cadette de 9 ans, peut-être aussi, lui dois-je mon bonheur et l'amour profond de mon homme. 

Tout a commencé pendant des vacances d'été, Mutivisions avait passé "Runway bride - Just married ou presque" en boucle. Pour nous tunisiens, c'est en décodé grâce au génie des pays pauvres qui ne croient pas en les droits d'auteur ni de diffusion. Je l'ai vu et revu une trentaine de fois et pour cause... 

En plus du naturel de Julia, ce qui est le plus émouvant dans ses films, c'est qu'il y a toujours une définition  exquise de l'amour, et souvent une demande en mariage délicieusement originale. 

Runaway Bride - Just married (ou presque) (1999) avec my beloved Richard Gere 

Maggie Carpenter: I love you, Homer Eisenhower Graham. Will you marry me? 
Ike Graham: I... I've got to think about this a little bit. 
Maggie Carpenter: Good. I was hoping you'd say that. 
Ike Graham: [laughing] You were not! 
Maggie Carpenter: I was, because if you said "yes" right away, then I wouldn't get to say this next part, and I've been practicing. 
[Maggie sits down, clears her throat
Maggie Carpenter: Ready? 
Ike Graham: I'm listening. 
Maggie Carpenter: I guarantee there'll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is going to want get out. But I also guarantee... 
[starts to cry
Maggie Carpenter: ...that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart... you're the only one for me. 

Stepmom - Ma meilleure ennemie (1998) avec Ed Harris et Susan Sarandon

Un film que j'affecte particulièrement, je me lasse pas de le regarder et d'écouter sa BO - Marvin Gaye: Ain't no mountain high enough

Luke: Good morning. 
Isabel: Good morning, baby. 
Luke: I’ve got something for you. 
Isabel: You do? 
Luke: But you have to wake up to get it. 
Isabel: I’m awake… 
You shouldn’t have… 
Luke: The first time I got married we’d been together since college. Marriage… just seemed like the next step. It was just something that happened. But I think for two people to really love each other to really commit to each other it has to be an act of will. Or a decision. And I think two people have to live that decision every day. Even when things are hard and you feel like giving up you have to hang on to that decision, that choice to love each other. Even if it's only by a thread. I let that thread break once. This time, it won't. Will you marry me?  
Isabel: Yes. Yes, I will

The Mexican (2001) avec Brad Pitt

Samantha: I have to ask you a question. It's a good one so think about it. If two people love each other, but they just can't seem to get it together, when do you get to that point of enough is enough? 
Jerry: Never. 


Coup de foudre à Notting Hill (1999) avec Hugh Grant  

Anna Scott: After all... I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her. 

Mais aussi: 

Anna Scott: Can I stay for a while? 
William: You can stay forever. 

Mais surtout: 

Anna Scott: I can't believe you have that picture on your wall. 
William: You like Chagall? 
Anna Scott: I do. It feels like how being in love should be. Floating through a dark blue sky. 
William: With a goat playing the violin. 
Anna Scott: Yes - happiness isn't happiness without a violin-playing goat. 

Closer: Entre adultes consentants (2004) avec Jude Law

Anna: Don't stop loving me. I can see it draining out of you. It's me, remember? It was a stupid thing to do and it meant nothing. If you love me enough, you'll forgive me.

is aussi: 

Larry:I hate this place.
Anna: At least it's central.
Larry: I hate central. Central London's a theme park. I hate retro. I hate the future. Where does that leave me?
Come back.
Anna: You promised you wouldn't.
Larry: Come back.
Anna: How's work?
Larry: Oh, Jesus. Work's shit, okay?
 Do they have waiters here?
I love you. Please, come back.
Anna: I'm not coming back.

Anna gets the papers out.

Larry: No pen.

Anna gets a pen out.

Anna: Pen.

He grabs her hand.

 Anna: Give me back my hand.
Larry: I'll sign on one condition. We skip this, we go to my sleek new surgery, and we christen the patients' new bed with our final fuck. I know you don't want to, and I know you think I'm sick for asking, but that's what I'm asking, for old times sake.
Because I'm obsessed with you, because I can't get over you. Because I think on some small level you owe me something for deceiving me so exquisitely.
For all these reasons, I am begging you to give me your body.
You be my whore, and in return I will pay you with your liberty.
You do this, I swear I will not contact you again.
I'm going to the bar. I assume you still drink vodka tonic.

Vivian: I appreciate this whole seduction thing you've got going on here, but let me give you a tip: I'm a sure thing. 

Mais aussi:

Vivian: You're late. 
Edward Lewis: You're stunning. 
Vivian: You're forgiven. 

Mais surtout la dernière scène: 

Edward Lewis: So what happened after he climb up the tower and rescued her? 
Vivian: She rescues him right back.

 Welcome to Hollywood. What's your dream?

Some dreams come true, some don't. But keep on dreamin'.
