"Pretty (Hefty) Woman" Julia Roberts has put on some 50 pounds while doing her latest film, "Eat, Pray, Love!"
"The role calls for me to go on a year-long food binge and I can never spit anything out because it makes me sick", stated the big old gal!
During the filming, Roberts went to Italy, India, Bali, France and Greece to eat at all the great restaurants.
"It is supposed to be a sort of 'spiritual trip' but I think my spirit alone gained at least ten pounds."
Getting back to the United States, a crowd of tipped off reporters, including our own Chester Ingraham, waited for Roberts to get off the plane from Greece.
But they all missed Julia because of not recognizing her.
"We saw this pretty rotund lady get off but not a one of us recognized her, although we saw one 'pregnant' lady. We hadn't been told that she was pregnant so we kept waiting for Julia Roberts", stated Ingraham.
Julia told the reporters later that it would gross her out if she spit her food into a bucket provided.
"She pretty well grossed US out at the press conference. Wonder what she looked like at the end of the movie?"
