Julia Roberts - Eat Pray Love

Julia Roberts has a tendency to star in movies that I want to turn my nose up at, but simply can’t. Just when I think, oh eyeroll, she’s doing another soul-searching romantic movie about her and some sexy dude I can’t ever obtain…she pulls off capturing my attention and my interest despite it. Maybe it is because I have girlie parts, who knows, but her new film Eat, Pray, Love looks like one of those movies I will sit on the couch and dive into, while also consuming a ridiculous amount of snacks.

Eat, Pray, Love is based on the book Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia, by author Elizabeth Gilbert. It seems from the preview that the movie follows the book pretty closely – woman has a messy divorce, this feeds the desire to soul search, this prompts her to take a year off and explore the world as well as herself. The preview gives off a vibe of inspiration and empowerment, and if anyone call pull that off, it’s Julia Roberts, for sure. See the preview and the first look at the poster for Eat, Pray, Love starring Julia Roberts, Billy Crudup, James Franco and Javier Bardem in theatres August 13th, below.
