James Franco is starring in the much talked about upcoming film, Eat Pray Love, opposite Julia Roberts, but it was Julia who was feeling the pressure to perform!
“It was fun, she’s great. She’s a pro,” James tells Parade about working with Julia. “We spent a little time together before we started filming and we got along from the beginning.”
James was really looking forward to working with the Pretty Woman star.
“That was pretty much the reason I did it. I knew that all my scenes would be with Julia,” James explains. “I thought it would be a great experience.”
But the scenes James had with Julia, made her a little nervous!
“She is very, very outgoing,” he says. “But I think she’ll also admit pretty freely that she doesn’t love to do love scenes and actually was charmingly shy when we had to do them.”
