Hollywood actress Julia Roberts and her family put on ‘evacuation standby’ at their luxury private estate in the Hawkesbury region during the flood emergency in NSW

Julia Roberts and her family were put on ‘evacuation standby’ last week, during the flood emergency in NSW, it has been reported.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the Hollywood actress, 53, her cinematographer husband Daniel Moder, 52, and their three children are staying at a private luxury estate in the Hawkesbury region north-west of Sydney.

The publication reports that the rising flood waters in the region – as a result of the once-in-a-century downpour last weekend – almost cut off the roads surrounding the five-bedroom property.

But an insider insisted to the publication that the star and her family weren’t in ‘any direct danger’ and that if they were evacuated, it would have been as a ‘precaution.’

They told the publication: ‘Their accommodation is on very high ground so there was no major threat.’

‘It was more about being aware that roads in and out were to be cut off temporarily,’ they added.

The estate in the Hawkesbury region is where Julia and her family are said to have spent their compulsory quarantine period and where they will continue to stay during their time Down Under.

The lavish private property features an infinity pool, sleek kitchen decked out with modern appliances, spacious bedrooms and a peaceful balcony with stunning views out to the bushlands.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Julia Roberts’ reps for comment.

Julia arrived Down Under earlier this month and is slated to film two movies alongside big names this year.

One of the projects is political thriller called Gaslit, centered on the infamous Watergate scandal, with Academy Award-winner Sean Penn and Australia’s own Joel Edgerton.

The movie is being directed and produced by Joel and his brother, Nash Edgerton.

Julia is also set to film the Ticket to Paradise with her Ocean’s Eleven leading man George Clooney, 59.

The romantic comedy will begin shooting the film on the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland later this year.

Julia and George, who is set to arrive in Australia later this year, play a divorced couple who travel to Bali, Indonesia, to save their daughter from making the same mistake they did 25 years ago.

The production has received $6.4million from the Australian government as part of a location incentive program.

‘I’m so pleased to support Ticket to Paradise with a $6.4million grant as part of our highly successful Location Incentive Program,’ said Paul Fletcher, the Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts.

In return, the film is expected to bring $47million to the local economy and create more than 270 jobs.
