Julia Roberts Covers Entertainment Weekly

Julia Roberts promotes her new film Eat, Pray, Love in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. Here’s what the 42-year-old actress said:

On scarfing down all of the food she ate during the duration of filming: “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 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.”

Leonardo DiCaprio has had an incredibly successful career, but there’s one role that got away.

During a recent radio interview, the 35-year-old actor revealed that he regrets not working on the Boogie Nights film. The actor said: “Probably the only film I was offered and turned down but now wish I had made is Boogie Nights. The first time I met Paul Anderson to discuss that role I hadn’t seen any of his previous work. Now I’ve seen a lot of it and I really liked that film.”

FYI: DiCaprio ditched Boogie Nights in favor of Titanic, while Mark Walhberg went on to play the lead role.

Mark Ruffalo Opens Up About Hulk Role

Mark Ruffalo is finally opening up about playing The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers movie. During an interview at San Diego’s Comic Con, the actor shared:

On making his debut at Comic-Con: “It was very exciting — and I realized I had some pretty big shoes to fill. Those were my heroes up there! I was a comic book fan growing up. I loved The Hulk and The Avengers — it’s just strange to be entering that world as an actor. I never would have imagined that before. I was very, very nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. That’s as close you’re going to get to being a rock star as an actor. The fans — they have very strong feelings toward their comic book heroes.”

On Bruce Banner: “He’s a guy struggling with two sides of himself — the dark and the light — and everything he does in his life is filtered through issues of control. I grew up on the Bill Bixby TV series, which I thought was a really nuanced and real human way to look at The Hulk. I like that the part has those qualities.”

On Marvel’s split with Ed Norton: “I’m a friend of Ed’s, and yeah, that wasn’t a great way for all that to go down. But the way I see it is that Ed has bequeathed this part to me. I look at it as my generation’s Hamlet.”

Ellen DeGeneres Leaves American Idol

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who started her full-time judge gig on the show last ninth season, is leaving the hit reality show.

In a statement, DeGeneres wrote: “A couple months ago, I let FOX and the American Idol producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for m. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for.”

“I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on Idol and I am very grateful for the year I had, I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.”
