Returning to American cinemas in 2009 with Duplicity, Roberts reunited with Closer co-star Clive Owen. She explained her two-year absence from the American movie scene to People magazine, saying "I don't have the bug to work. I have the bug to make good movies, and those don't come along very often." While the film was not a huge hit, critics heralded her return. "It is an undeniable thrill to see her again," wrote Lisa Schwarzbaum in Entertainment Weekly.
In addition to acting, Roberts has worked behind the scenes. She served as an executive producer for the 2003 short-lived television series Queens Supreme and for television adaptations of the American Girl stories. The most recent television movie was 2008's Kit Kittredge: An American Girl starring Abigail Breslin as the title character.
Roberts continues to find compelling roles to play. In 2010, she appeared in the ensemble comedy Valentine's Day. Roberts also stars in the upcoming drama Eat, Pray, Love, a film adaptation of the best-selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert.
With a number of other projects in development, Roberts will continue to juggle her life as a self-described "domestic goddess" with her career as one of the world's most popular actresses. "Acting fulfills me in a creative way . . . and it gives me something to talk about at dinner," she told Allure magazine.
