In a related story concerning Julia Roberts and things that are spelled with an “ae,” archaeologists in Bulgaria have dug up the 9,000-year-old remains of a female and named it Julia Roberts. The blush may be off Roberts’ bloom a bit since Pretty Woman, but likening her to a 9,000-year-old skeleton is just rude. Apparently, though, the diggers call the old girl that not because of her age, but her remarkable choppers.
Lead archaeologist Dr. Georgi Ganetsovski said that Prehistoric Julia had Mediterranean features and would have possessed a dazzling smile due to her near-perfect, straight, white teeth, which were almost unheard of in ancient times because of poor dental care and gritty diets that wore down enamel. “She was a rare beauty and could have competed with today’s Hollywood stars with her perfect set of teeth,” Ganetsovski said. “She is a Stone Age Julia Roberts. She would have had a perfect smile – it really is a puzzle.”
