Julia Roberts performs in Role Call with James Corden during The Late Late Show with James Corden on Oct. 4, 2017.

In the latest edition of The Late Late Show's “Role Call,” host James Corden and Julia Roberts did a breathless run through the Oscar-winning actress' entire film career in less than ten minutes. Of course, with a career as illustrious as Roberts’, it was difficult to cram a long look at 25 films into a single segment, though the pair did their best during the hilariously elaborate skit on Wednesday night (Oct. 4), which definitely played favorites when it came to certain titles. 

Steel Magnolias featured Corden in Sally Field’s iconic motherly role, attempting to force Roberts -- her hair full of giant rollers -- to drink a glass of orange juice as she fended off laughter. Eat Pray Love featured a grotesquely large bowl of spaghetti as the center piece for the two to briefly discuss Roberts’ love life.

The crowd couldn’t help but cheer when the guitar riff to Pretty Woman began to play, and Corden wheeled in a dress on a coat rack. Roberts entered, arms full of bags to tell sales-associate-Corden that he made a huge mistake not serving her the day before, then storming off so that the show could continue.

Roberts snuck in a quick promo for her upcoming film Wonder, which Corden wasn't prepared for because he hasn’t seen it yet. Along the way they hit the best bits from Larry Crowne, Runaway Bride, Mystic Pizza, Closer, Stepmom, Wonder, FlatlinersHook, Erin Brockovich and Charlotte's Web, among others. The segment ended with My Best Friend’s Wedding, as Corden broke out his microphone to sing “I Say a Little Prayer” with Roberts. Relive Roberts’ career in the entire “Role Call” clip, below.
