Maybe she will. Roberts, 46, just wrapped up work on the screen adaptation of Larry Kramer’s award-winning AIDS drama “The Normal Heart.”

She plays Emma Brookner, the physician (and polio survivor) who’s on the front lines when the AIDS epidemic hits. The HBO movie was directed by Ryan Murphy, who steered her through “Eat Pray Love.”

“I have the coolest job, I really do,” says Roberts, who is married to Daniel Moder, a cameraman she met while filming the 2000 release “The Mexican.” They have three kids. “And at the end of the day, you go home to the light, and have all the more appreciation for that. That’s one of the upsides to going through all the Weston mire — is to go home and realize, ‘Oh wait, my life’s not like that!’ ”
