News: Roberts Worried About Playing Bardem’s Love Interest

Awww I just love Jules, so much news about her the past few weeks and I just love it !!!

Julia Roberts is anxious to see how Javier Bardem will sweep her off her feet in their forthcoming film Eat, Pray, Love – after watching the actor’s violent performance in No Country For Old Men.

The actress is set to star alongside Richard Jenkins and Bardem, who falls in love with Roberts’ character during a worldwide journey of self-discovery in the movie, which is based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s best-selling 2006 memoir.

But the Hollywood beauty admits she is having trouble envisioning Bardem in the role of a hopeless romantic after watching him play an awkward-looking and compassionless killer in the 2007 Oscar-winning drama.

She says, “I can’t actually say I’m looking forward to it because I keep picturing him with that evil Beatles haircut. And that can (weapon) – what the hell is in that can? I have some reservations about this, but there are other nice people in the movie before he gets there.”

Filming is scheduled to begin in July and will take place in New York, Italy, India and Bali.
