Julia Roberts had credited 'Wonder' as a "superhero movie".

The 50-year-old actress portrays Isabel, the mother of August 'Auggie' Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) who has a rare genetic disorder named Treacher Collins, in the production, and the movie icon believes the drama should be placed in a different film category because of the topic it addresses, as she has hailed the child protagonist a "hero".

Speaking to The Sun newspaper about the movie, which is based on author RJ Palacio's 2012 book of the same name, she said: "To me, 'Wonder' is a superhero movie because Auggie is a superhero."

The 'Pretty Woman' star has admitted she begged directors to cast her in the film adaptation of the novel because her and her children Henry, 10, as well as twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, both 12, all "loved" it.

She explained: "It stopped me in my tracks. I read it with my kids, I loved it, they loved it. I hurled myself on the mercy of the producers and said, 'Please, let me be in this movie. I want to be the mom'.

"I couldn't put the book down. It is such a powerful way of telling people how they should behave to others.
