Julia Roberts Does Elle September 2010

  • Pin it

Aren’t you just a little bit curious to see Eat Pray Love? I am, I really am! I mean I’ve seen Inception, what can go wrong? Especially with a movie that was made after a best selling book about women and their ways through life. It could be far more interesting than a book about women and their passion for clothes, shoes and so on. Right?

Part of the marketing campaign, is of course, this Elle US September 2010 feature with Julia Roberts. Four different covers, at least three different photographers and an inside spread worthy of Vogue. (click through to discover more, click here for the gallery!)

So there’s a covers trifecta available for the newsstand edition of the magazine, however, the most interesting cover is the subscribers’ one. They’re the lucky ones for this issue! I wonder, though, even though the movie is not about a (very) young woman, why they’re so keen on making Julia look old? Have you seen those covers? I mean, come on, she’s the Pretty Woman, I’m sure better photos can be done with her! (and no, I’m not talking airbrush-wise, I’m talking about artistic composition!) (you can check out fragments from Julia’s interview with Elle here)

Can’t help it and don’t like to bash Julia at all but I saw her on tv promoting this film and she looked far more worse than that cover. I was sort of shocked. It’s not ‘the older thing’. I find most plastic older people just look silly after they have work done. There are plenty older pretty women. It’s possible she was just bored and dead tired due to the many press junkets?

Oh, I just viewed an interview with Julia at the New York premiere of this film and on photos with her very charming co-actor Javier Bardem: she looked gorgeous! A real pretty woman. So I guess I was right that Julia must have been really tired on such an awful press-junket day. And that cover is just bad photoshop and bad styling too. Well, not my taste.
I’m looking forward to see this film too Kpriss. :)
Any recommendations to read the novel first? Anyone?

Yeah, yeah, you can call me unstable or nuts or whatever but I’m back to my old, own familiar name which is on this blog since the early days of Stylefrizz, my fave blog. I changed it because some douchebags who have apparently no life and loves to be anonymous nasty on the interwebs got me so p*ssed off I’d choose a screen name.
Isn’t that easy to be that way on you keyboard(s)? That’s so pathetic. Apologises for my choice of words but I can’t find anything more decent to say to creatures who pop up now and then with other names to get rid off their own frustrations. Next time I ignore you and browse on and leave you with your own problems.
So have a nice day: eat, pray and love! :)

Or we use it for creative writing practice…. heh heh heh! It’s only fashion!

Sorry Kpriss but I have no desire what so ever to see this film and I really cannot abide Julia Roberts’ acting. So no I will not buy this Elle issue and NO WAY Jose am I seeing that film.
I do have the book (one of my best buds gave it to me) but I have yet to crack it open as I have other things on my reading list at the moment, so I will most likely get to it at some point.

Adriana which ever name you wish to use you are always stellar! :)

I usually enjoy Julia’s movies for the fluff they are but I find her hard & a tad frumpy in print.

I love Julia Roberts. She’s has an undying beauty. Whether print ads or movies, I am a biggest fan of her. ;0
