Eat, Pray, Love...

...and Sulk (apparently).

Why are Julia Roberts and James Franco so glum on set? Is it because Javier Bardem isn't there yet? Speculate about their grumpy moods in the comments!

Ugh. How was I not even aware this wretched project existed, let alone had already gone into production???

James Franco, you be slummin'. No amount of cash is worth dealing with Julia "Remember me? FUCKYOUIMASTAR" Roberts, the loss of your self-respect, or the maudlin and lachrymose tedium of insights surely enmeshed in the screenplay adaptation of the shitty cliched journey of self-discovery rag this turd is based on. Puke. Shit. Fart.

Franco is agonizingly wishing he was back on the "Howl" set, and Julia knows it.

Emma said...

Mmmm, James Franco.

pomme said...

they wait to pay?!

pomme said...

no,they wait to be paid!

sam said...

Franco is glum because Queen Roberts is cold as ice, and the thought of starting conversation makes him cringe.

Iggy said...

(After an awkward silence)

Franco: Have you ever kissed Sean Penn?

Roberts: Have you seen Stepmom? (pause)
I rest my case.

(Both sigh and remain silent).

From a distance, hardly audible, the director shouts.

Ok, are you in the characters' mood now?

adelutza said...

Yes, yes, it is because of Javier Bardem.

John O'Neil said...

It's because Viola Davis's radiant face isn't there.

Jordan Wellin said...

Julia Roberts is pining for the days of yore when she was the most bankable actress out there.

And James just wants to kiss Sean Penn again.

John T said...

James is glum because he doesn't have my phone number (just ask James, it's not like it's a Columbia class-nothing to lose sleep over).

Julia is glum because she's hit the Audrey in the 1970's part of her career, and she's wishing she could still be shopping with her Huckleberry friend.

i dont think julia gives a fuck anymore and good for her 1 billion from her films worldwide whats there to prove she is already legendary has an oscar is happily married with kids has some memorable films and performances,why does she care what hateful forum posters think,it is so easy to bash the jule!!! try something else.

Wayne B. said...

James is glum probably because he doesn't have any reading material while waiting. Julia's probably realizing that she shouldn't have taken this vanity project. What a miscast; the role sounds perfect for Reese Witherspoon.

Jeff M said...

Roberts: Who'd a thunk it? Child's getting more press than me!

Franco: You didn't think you'd be the number one Julia forever, did ya?

(P.S. Nathaniel, waiting ever so anxiously for your review!)

Murtada said...

I didn't know Franco was in this movie. It has become much more attractive.

Julia is glum because she has realized how annoying she has become and James is sad because he's working with the most annoying woman in film.

UncleVanya said...

All this talk of Sean and James makes me hope that they will appear on screen together again, just not in a movie. Beach front and polaroids would actually be enough for me. Julia could hold the silver reflector, so that we can get the desirable shadows and light.

FenixPahedi said...

I just love James Franco. He is as hot as he is talented.

Julia looks really old in this photo.

adri said...

I used to just think James was gorgeous. Now I also think he is funny and clever and ironic. He's made an interesting variety of movies.

Julia Roberts' movies don't seem to have held up all that well though. There's only about 3 that are worth watching more than once (although I haven't seen all of them). In her last movie Duplicity, I thought Clive Owen worked hard to persuade the audience that Roberts was loveable (I remain unconvinced).

Dimi said...

"I'm doing this movie when I should be giving the UCLA commencement speech? It's all Julia's fault!"

Julia: I didn't know James was in this.

James: Apparently I didn't either.

They’re playing brother and sister correct?

James looks very yummy. I want to taste his penis.

They've both seen the call sheet and know that today won't involve either eating or loving.

Just long steady shots of deep intense praying.

what's with all the hate for julia roberts.

RC said...

Nice --- that picture's pretty exciting. I'm up for some Julia Roberts -- she needs to do something refreshing again -- it seems too long.

kel said...

Yeah, what is what all the hate for Julia? I guess when you're the most bankable, popular, biggest female movie star of a generation there's bound to be backlash.

excited about this project. n the julia roberts backlash is fine- a star of her stature would inevitably go through this kinda phase with his or her career. It happened to Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, Tom Cruise. When one is such a huge movie star, some people tend to take them for granted- n sadly not until they pass away would some people recognize and remember their talents and especially magic- the magic of the moment when they first appeared on film. Julia Roberts has been undoubtedly the biggest female movie star of the past 40 years. In terms of influence to the younger generation of actresses, only Meryl Streep has been a bigger influence. But who would not be influenced by the greatest actress who's ever lived. But in terms of star wattage, Hollywood has not been ruled by a woman, since the 60's when Audrey Hepburn was on the height of her career until Julia Roberts came in the 90's. No wonder when someone asked Audrey Hepburn before she died what actress would she pick to take on a remake of Breakfast at Tiffanys- if ever there is one. she said Julia Roberts. n when someone asked Katharine Hepburn who her favorite actress was- she was highly critical of almost everyone- including Meryl Streep, but saved her praises of Julia Roberts.

nightmares of her nutcracker jaw opening up and devouring him keep James from napping?

notice her forced "closed" position she must maintain for his safety.

jess said...

Roberts : So how's Columbia ?

Franco : Great.

Roberts : Good grades ?

Franco : Yeah.

Roberts : Good. (pause) You know, I turned down Yale for my career.

Franco : Really ?

Roberts : Yes. I wanted to be a vet. But the pay's not so good.

Franco : Oh.

francesco said...

It looks like they both realized he's gay.

Leda said...

Umm... maybe they're crabby because they're being stalked by people from the neighborhood.

Like me.
