LOS ANGELES (GaeaTimes.com)- It is wrong to assume that Hollywood actors are obsessed about diet and want to retain an hourglass figure throughout their lives. On the contrary, there are some veteran actors who do not mind outing on a few extra pounds if a role requires him or her to do so. Noted actress Julia Roberts who has won million hearts with her blazing performance in films like ‘Erin Brokovich’ and ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ admitted that she put on some weight for her role in her latest movie named Eat, Pray, Love. She told in an interview to a magazine in recent times that she had put on 10 pounds for that role. She indulged in lots of pasta and pizza for gaining weight, the actress told the magazine.

Julia Roberts wanted to get into the skin of the character she played on screen. The actress said that putting weight for the role seemed logical to her as the character she was playing was depressed and underweight. She undergoes a transformation when she visits three different countries and gains weight. The actress gobbled a lot of Neapolitan pizza. She kept on eating pizza all day long when the shooting took place she said. A part of the film was shot in Italy and when she left for shooting in India she thought she would need bigger sized clothes.

The first looks of her upcoming movie is out and one has to admit that even with those extra pound the Pretty Woman of Hollywood looks as ravishing as ever. Julia Roberts said that she did not mind becoming a little overweight and the promos do not give the impression that she became obese by gaining a bit of weight either.
