Julia Roberts & Javier Bardem Premiere ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ in NYC
The stars of the new movie Eat, Pray, Love came out for the NY premiere last night and, as usual, Julia Roberts looked amazing although I’m not sure what she was wearing. I couldn’t tell if it was a blazer thrown over some shorts or if it was a skirt or a dress. But regardless, she looks ageless.
Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Ryan Murphy, Billy Crudup, Sandra Lee, Richard Jenkins, the book’s author Elizabeth Gilbert and Andrea Roth were a few of the big names there.
Roberts, who portrays Gilbert, said that she could relate to Gilbert’s soul-searching in the novel and was nervous about returning to such a large production.
“I haven’t done a main part in a movie in a long time and I wondered if that kind of work load would still be interesting to me, and I was very happy at the end of this that I felt incredibly fulfilled as a creative person,” she said.
Part of the “challenge” for the tall, slender 42-year-old was gaining weight. She put on roughly 10 lbs. in Rome, wolfing down eight slices of pizza in under an hour for one scene. In another instance, she ate about six bowls of pasta in one sitting.
