There has been alot of buzz going on about the September issue of Elle US when it was announced that Julia Roberts was going to be the cover girl for the huge fall fashion issue.
I'm excited in general to see all the fat issues that will be coming out mid-August featuring a tun of chunky sweaters, over the knee boots, bomber jackets, fur vests, paisley printed dresses and scarves galore. Thus is Fall Fashion. One of my most favorite seasons.
And what a better way to get into this season then with an interview with Julia Roberts that is the star of the movie that has been released in remake of the book "Eat, Pray, Love".
Personally I really liked the book and if you haven't read it, you definitely should check the book out before you see the movie.
The book was written by Elizabeth Gilbertson about how the author in her early 30s was plagued with despair after an ugly divorce. She decided that she would divide a year's time in three parts, spending each part in a different country. She first travels to Italy, then to India and finally Bali.
It's basically a book about finding oneself ~ I highly recommend it.
Anyways, lucky us, Elle has decided to give us 3 different covers of Julia Roberts for us to pick from and of course, from inside the magazine it has been divided into the three sections, Eat, Pray & Love.
I had a sneak peak at some of the photos and they are quite lovely. I'm not a huge fan of Julia Roberts, but I am really looking forward to reading through her interview and seeing the gorgeous editorial and seeing the movie.

What did you guys think of the book?

Here are some excerpts from the magazine interview which can be found on shelves August 17th.

On her acting skills: “I have no acting technique. And there’s nothing more boring than actors sitting around talking about acting.”

On botox/the plastic surgery trend in Hollywood: “It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they’ll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I’ll look like before I start cleaning the slates. I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story… and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”

On working with directors: “I’m always asking those guys to tell me what they want. The same with George Clooney. ‘Name it for me,’ I tell him, ‘and I’ll do it.’”

On behind the scenes with the cast of the Ocean’s movies: “Those boys! I was the only girl there. One day George Clooney put these giant potted trees in front of my door so that I couldn’t get out to work. I pride myself on being punctual! You didn’t want to leave your camera lying around, either, People were breaking into each other’s rooms, taking them, and let’s just say you didn’t want your mom picking up your photos at Walgreens! Photos of unidentifiable body parts.”

On her family with husband Danny Moder: “The children became the shooting stars of him, of that thing we have. How lucky we are that we love each other so much that we burst into three pieces.”

PS. I have added a link to if you guys are interested in purchasing the book. We do make a small percentage if you purchase through our blogs. And it also helps to keep us bloggers blogging away for free. And of course, Amazon has usually the best deals on books and other items, most of their books are 30% cheaper then what's out on the shelves at your local bookstore.
