Julia Roberts: 'Eat, Pray, Love' on EW Cover!

Julia Roberts finds her own inner peace on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s newest issue, on newsstands Friday (July 30)!

Here’s what the 42-year-old actress had to share:

On whether she used a spit bucket for all of the food scenes: “Well, first of all, that grosses me out. But the truth of the matter is, there probably would have come a point when I would have used it. If you look at any of the scenes of eating, by the end of the scene, I’m done eating. Like in the scene with the pizza, by the time the scene is over, I’ve eaten the entire piece. When we were in Naples, we started shooting at 8 in the morning, and I think by 8:45 I’d eaten 8 or 10 pieces of pizza. Pizza was what I ate all day.”

On her kids’ favorite location to film: “Well, my kids could really make a party in a cardboard box. It’s not hard to please people under four feet tall. They have a great spirit of adventure. EPL was for us the WPT: We called it the World Pool Tour. Everywhere we went, it was so hot, we were just looking for a swimming pool. The fact that they never got sunburned and no one’s hair ever turned green was pretty much my maternal triumph of the summer.”

On whether she obsesses over her appearance: “I’m human. Sometimes I, like anybody, wake up in the morning and go, ‘F—. Really? This is the starting point?’ Haven’t you ever picked up a picture of yourself from, like, five years ago, and you look at yourself and you just go, ‘And I had no appreciation for how lovely I looked, how fit and healthy I looked.’ So now I say, ‘Now listen. Ten years from now, you’re really going to think you should have appreciated yourself more.’ And I’m raising a daughter, and I really want to empower her by example.”

  • ugh

    Love Julia, she is true talent , too bad her bro is a douche junkie and her niece a future Lohan ! it sucks !!

  • xxx

    wooow cover is perfect!

  • flor

    @ugh: So true about everything you said! There are A LOT of rumours about Emma.. that’s so sad but I love Julia because she’s so real and gorgeous and I loved what she said about the pool and her children. She’s such a great mother and I applaud her for not working a few years to rise her children. Such a strong woman!

  • missy

    she is NO pretty woman, total bitch!

  • yay

    Can’t wait for this movie. Oh and also beauty is subjective and Pretty Woman was a lifetime ago. She’s done other things since then and won an Academy Award.

  • Joyce

    @ugh: @flor: Who are you two to judge Emma Roberts just because of a Blind Item? Get over yourselves! I suppose the rumours about Julia Roberts having a huge ego are true, too…

  • CASSIE

    WOW, WHAT HAPPENED TO HER? PRETTY WOMAN, NO MORE. THE ONLY THING THAT’S LEFT, IS HER UGLY CACKLE LAUGHING SOUND. . I WONDER HOW OFTEN HER HUSBAND SEES THE KIDS HE LEFT BEHIND, WHEN JULIA GOT PREGNANT WHEN DANNY WAS STILL MARRIED TO HIS 1ST WIFE. THIS UGLY BROAD IS THE REAL HOMEWRECKER. WHERE IS THE OUTCRY ?

  • ugh

    @Joyce:

    i had no idea abt a blind vice , but if u want to u can google Emma Roberts crashing parties and her twitter account has a pap photo of her in a car after she crashed a party with her alcoholic friends including Kstews ex boyfriend ! also watch her video at the Jay Leno show and you will see what i mean , Julia still has class , her Brother and Nice do not

    @CASSIE:

    She didn’t get pregnant when he was married to his first wife. He divorced his first wife in 2001 or in the first half of 2002. He and Julia got married in July of 2002. She didn’t get pregnant till 2005. Their twins were born in November of 2005.

  • ugh

    @Dawn:

    exactly Dawn , !! it annoys the hell out of me when ppl talk about something when they dont know what the hell they are talking about

  • gaut

    l haven’t heard of her or her movies in a very long time. She became a celeb to be adored by millions and such so harsh criticism shouldn’t ever be a surprise Julia. All l’ve known ’bout her is that she was in a lukeworm comedy called pretty woman…she’s got nothing goin’ for her ‘cept for? nothin’ she must feel pressured to preform since the truck load of young n’ toned hollywood is making way….

    @gaut:

    She doesn’t work that much because she now has a family. She recently did film another movie with Tom Hanks that he wrote for him and her to star. Tom directed it, too.

  • dvalery206

    She’s a home wrecker she even had a t-shirt that said mean Vera’ Vera is the name of her husband ex, for some reason reason AJ was villified and Julia Roberts was glorified.

  • liss

    wasn’t she wearing a t-shirt saying something bad about the still wife of Danny Moder before the divorce? “A low Vera”

  • http://twitter.com/dawn9476 Dawn

    LMAO. Julia got a lot of hate for the Vera shirt. She still gets a lot of hate. Just go to the Huffington Post regarding a post on her brother. There is a lot of hate there. She gets a lot of hate at ONTD, too.

    Worldwide dating ( http://www.uniformedkiss.com/ ) for guys & girls that are

    in the military and for those of us that love the guys and girls in uniform.

  • missy

    Julia Roberts UCK!

  • Skye

    um, @ugh, that picture is of her and friends after the MTV Movie Awards after party at Las Palmas…she was on the list…also the only thing you get when you google that is your comment.

  • chaos

    I like her more and more. Always such intelligent interviews and clearly very erudite. She is the real queen, all the others are just contenders. I wish her the best!

  • CARRIE

    THE ONLY REASON WHY —-THIS HOMEWRECKER GOT THIS MOVIE IS BECAUSE BRAD PITT IS ONE OF THE PRODUCERS. THEY BECAME FRIENDS WHEN THEY WORKED TOGETHER IN THE MEXICAN. DUPLICITY WAS SO HORRBLE-BORING-MOVIE, THAT WE JUST WALKED OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOVIE. HER STUPID LAUGHING SOUND MADE US CRINGE.. I THINK THAT SHE IS DONE AS AN ACTRESS. POOR GORGEOUS JAVIER, TO HAVE TO KISS THIS WOMAN–, WHEN HE HAS A BEAUTIFUL WIFE, PENELOPE—– HAS TO BE SO DISGUSTING. —-THE SAD PART IS THAT SHE STILL THINKS THAT SHE HAS IT. SORRY JULIA, BUT YOU DON’T SHE WAS ON ACCESS HOLLYWOOD THIS AFTRNOON, SHE LOOKED SO UGLY. BILLY BUSH WAS KISSING HE AS*. PATHETIC.

  • Jokergurl

    I used to like Julia Roberts and then she just got an ego or something, it’s too bad too because she was great in movies like Pretty Woman, Sleeping with the Enemy and The Pelican Brief, although I did like Notting Hill and Runaway Bride her re-teaming with Gere but their chemistry is off that charts that’s rare in Hollywood.

  • whatAmouth

    a washed up has been

  • max

    fantastic cover, so fresh and simple! with that face and that smile you don’t need anything else.
    i can’t wait for the movie!

  • Mitzi

    Hah! Julia Roberts a has been, is one of the most ridiculous things I read in a long time. She has made loads of movies and some of them were very good! And then she did what most women do: had children. And just because she took her role as a mother very seriously instead of hiring ten nannies and letting them raise the children, she is a has been? NO, she just set her priorities right and made looking after her husband and children the most important thing for a while. That does not take away all the things that she achieved. So stop writing such rubbish, it is ridiculous!

  • Jasliesh

    Love Julia, love the cover, love the interview, can’t wait for the movie.

    The biggest female box office star OF ALL TIME. You can hate her all you want too, doesn’t change facts. No other female has come close to bringing in as much money as she has at the box office.

    The book was fantastic!! I am certain that Julia will portray Elizabeth Gilbert extremely well! I am a huge fan of Bali so eagerly await that part of the movie. I don’t think Americans appreciate that area of the globe like the Aussies do – so will be interested to hear their reviews. Can’t wait to see the movie – do I see it with my husband or girlfriend!? I can’t decide!
