Julia Roberts and Elizabeth Gilbert Discuss Eat, Pray, Love with Oprah Winfrey

9780143038412H.jpgToday Julia Roberts and Elizabeth Gilbert will visit the Oprah Winfrey Show to talk about the August adaptation of Gilbert’s memoir, Eat, Pray, Love.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview, as Gilbert shares her reaction to the film: “What I was watching encapsulated the worst and best time of my life, condensed down into two hours. So I came out of it shaken, amazed, delighted, tearful … it’s essentially like this amazing director and this great actress and this cinematographer got together and made me a home movie of my year’s journey. But they Photoshopped me out and replaced me with somebody with really amazing skin and 36-inch legs. Who wouldn’t love that?”
