A JULIA Roberts fan has had her dreams come true after a thank-you from the actress for baking her birthday cakes.
Mary Nesbitt-Larking, 28, fell in love with the star after watching her 1990 film Pretty Woman.
Since 2014, she has marked Julia’s birthday each year — she was 53 on October 28 — by baking a cake and putting photos on Instagram.
But Mary, who has the neurological disease hydrocephalus, this year got a like from the Hollywood legend, who posted: “They all look delicious. Thank you for thinking of me on my special day.”
Mary, from Hertford, said: “When I saw there was a comment, I sat on the floor and burst into tears, feeling completely overwhelmed.”
Mary, who has even named one of her seven rescue cats after actress Julia, added: “I would always tag her team, just on the off chance that they may show Julia, but until this year, nothing had ever happened.
“Because I’ve been doing this for so long I didn’t think this year would be any different. I was sitting reading people’s lovely comments when I saw an Instagram notification pop up that said, “Julia Roberts likes your post”.
“I thought I must have misread it and that maybe it was a fan page, but I felt compelled to click on it.
“By the time my Instagram notifications loaded, I saw there was a comment too. I clicked on it and noticed the little blue verification tick by her name, and as dramatic as it sounds, it felt like everything was in slow motion.
“I ran upstairs and handed my phone to my mum, and all I said was “it’s happened”, and she knew.
“Even waking up this morning, I wondered if I’d dreamt the whole thing. I just can’t fathom that this amazing person has not only seen my post but has taken the time out to actually comment.”
