News: Roberts Worried About Playing Bardem’s Love Interest

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.
