Julia Roberts and Michelle Obama have a special trip in the works.
The Obama Foundation announced on its website Monday the “Pretty Woman” actress and former first lady will travel to Malaysia to participate in the Leaders: Asia-Pacific program.
According to the foundation’s website, the program will host 200 leaders from 33 countries and territories in the Asia-Pacific region and will feature skill-building workshops and leadership training.
The program will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Dec. 10-14. On Dec. 9, Roberts and Obama will stop in Vietnam as part of the foundation’s Girls Opportunity Alliance to meet with education organizations for adolescent girls.
“In Malaysia, Mrs. Obama and Ms. Roberts will share reflections about their trip to Vietnam, as well as lessons from their own leadership journeys and their path-breaking careers,” the website says.
Julia Roberts reportedly was suggested to play Harriet Tubman, and Twitter isn’t having it
This is not the first time Roberts has teamed up with the Obama Foundation.
In January, the organization published a video that featured Roberts and other celebrities, including Meryl Streep, David Beckham, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Amy Poehler and John Legend, discussing the importance of educating girls.
Though the upcoming event is closed to the public, certain sessions will be observable via livestream on obama.org, including a conversation between Obama, Roberts and Malaysian TV host and model Deborah Henry on Dec. 11 at 10 p.m. ET.
