Superstar Julia Roberts was shocked by the fuss she caused when she arrived at a Los Angeles launderette to wash her clothes.

The OSCAR-winning actress rushed to her nearest launderette last week (begs20SEP04) because her washing machine had broken down, and told stunned customers she refuses to allow anyone else to do her laundry.

She said, "I know it's hard to believe, but I do my own laundry. My washer and dryer aren't working right now."
