Julia Roberts Felt Bad Eating In Front Of Skinny Matt Bomer

Julia Roberts felt awful eating lunch in front of her The Normal Heart co-star Matt Bomer following his drastic weight loss.

The production on the Tv movie adaptation of Larry Kramer's play shut down for three months to allow Bomer time to transform himself into early Aids victim Felix Turner - and Roberts, who plays a no-nonsense doctor in the film, admits she was shocked by how much weight her co-star had lost when they returned to the set.

She says, "It was like the smaller he got, the quieter all of his energy became. That was heartbreaking, to see someone allowing this dimness to take over.

"I hideously ate full lunches right in front of him, and I would say, 'Does this bother you?' 'No'. And he'd pull out his little lunch of a lettuce leaf and four almonds and be sweet as can be while I was having my Blt (bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich) with a side of Blt."

Looks like she's trying to ignore her sister's death. On those facts it seems that she is really a bitch. She alredy ruin a marriage just to get what she wanted it, the family of her husband hates her...some text thats worth to read: “Well, what was she like?” I asked him afterwards. “A snake,” he replied. There’s always been something somewhat disconcerting about Roberts to me. Anyone with a smile that big, who seems that hell-bent on pushing herself as the sweetest, nicest thing ever, I mean, she couldn’t really be that sweet, now could she? Meanwhile, her personal life seemed to suggest she wasn’t as much of a peach as she liked to pretend. She left a series of famous men in her wake — Kiefer Sutherland, Lyle Lovett, Benjamin Bratt — before ending up with Danny Moder, with whom she now has three children. One couldn’t help but wonder if the lady was a bit of a man-eater. Eventually, she did tackle more serious movie roles, some better, some not — “Erin Brockovich,” for example, and later the “Ocean’s” movies — but she seemed most comfortable playing the girl all the girls wanted to be friends with and all the guys wanted to sleep with — think: “Notting Hill” or “Runaway Bride.” Nowadays, though, if you Google “i hate julia roberts,” you get 676,000 returns. “Eat Pray Love” is getting trounced by the critics, so far scoring an abysmal 29 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. While most of the critics loathed the movie and far fewer decry Roberts’ performance, one critic noted of her role in the book-turned-movie: “The film is a fairly faithful transcription of events, even though Liz, as played by Roberts, carries a faint air of entitlement.” And that’s what you see in more than a few of those Google returns, that there’s something off about how Roberts comes across, that same something that led to my lack of surprise when my writer-friend described her as a snake in the grass. In that meeting with reporters, he went on to tell me, she was rude, ready to pounce on anyone who crossed her, eying the people around her like a queen eyes her subjects.
