My Two Cents: “Eat Pray Love” On A Budget

Not everyone is as lucky as Elizabeth Gilbert, of Eat Pray Love fame, to spend a year in exotic locales to recover from a bad breakup. As a 30-year-old New Yorker returning to singledom after a string of long-term relationships, I can only dream of consulting a Bali guru to show me the right path.

Why Does Everyone Hate Julia Roberts?

Years ago, I had a friend who was an entertainment writer in Los Angeles. At one point, Julia Roberts was promoting whatever newly released blockbuster she was starring in, and my friend went to go interview her. At the time, she was still mostly considered to be America’s sweetheart. In the hotel meeting room, a…

Quotable: James Franco Thinks Julia Roberts Is Shy In The Sack

“She is very, very outgoing. But I think she’ll also admit pretty freely that she doesn’t love to do love scenes and actually was charmingly shy when we had to do them.”James Franco on filming sex scenes with Julia Roberts for “Eat, Pray, Love.” Either she’s shy or she isn’t into James. Methinks shy.

“Eat, Pray, Love”‘s Excessive Sartorial Attention

I’ll admit it. I was a HUGE fan of Eat, Pray, Love when the book was originally released, and even suggested it to all of my girlfriends, aunts, cousins, and extended family members. But with the soon-to-be-released movie on the horizon, this is no longer just a surprise bestselling book seen in the hands of…

I’ve been meaning to write this letter for a while now, and since tonight is the season finale of “Glee,” I thought it was finally appropriate. I think I’m in love with you. I know you’re gay, but I can’t stop myself from loving you and the shows you created. “Glee“…

“Eat, Pray, Love”: The Most Boring Movie Poster Ever

Is it just me or does the movie poster for “Eat, Pray, Love” just look like the paparazzi took a photo of Julia Roberts sitting on a bench eating gelato? When Javier Bardem isn’t wearing a shirt in your movie, that’s what you should be leading with, people. [Just Jared]…

Eat, Pray, Buy?

Apparently, it’s not enough for a movie just to exist as it is. Each film has to be paired with items that are actually for sale, based on the movie, because, really, who doesn’t want a “Harry Potter” wand or “Lord of the Rings” elf ears? “Sex and the City” has thongs, Christmas decorations, and…
