It was a union of Oscar-winning actors as Javier Bardem and Julia Roberts hit the premiere of Eat Pray Love at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City today (August 10).
While Javier kept it classic in a tailored navy blue suit, 42-year-old Julia showed off her killer gams in a pair of short shorts and an oversized blazer.
Meanwhile, though she’s an old pro at this point, Julia still gets nervous about movie making.
“If I’m not feeling anxious and excited and nervous, then I haven’t invested much in it and I shouldn’t be there,” she says. “So, really, I just want to put myself in a position where I am really feeling like I have to ramp up and accomplish my goals.”
While filming, Julia was joined by her family — including 5-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and 3-year-old Henry.
“Well, the funny thing is, they had just been in India because my husband (photographer Danny Moder) had just been working there in January and this was in October,” she explains. “So, we had been in Jaunpur and Agra and all these places, Goa. We were all over the entire country. They loved it. So, when I said we were going back, they were so excited. We went to all the places we hadn’t been before.”
Julia’s next big-screen project is Larry Crowne, a dramedy that’s been shooting in Southern California in recent months and is set for release next year, reunites her with Tom Hanks, whom she describes as “an amazing man and friend.”
