The men of 'Eat Pray Love' -- Javier Bardem, Billy Crudup, Richard Jenkins and director Ryan Murphy -- sit down with ET's own Mark Steines in beautiful Napa Valley to sing the praises of Julia Roberts!
"I think she's an amazing actress, has done amazing work," says Javier. "Julia has this thing of making you feel safe and secure, helping you to be the best of yourself in your performance."
"I just love her, I just love her," says Richard. "She's found her 'Eat Pray Love.' I think Julia is in a great place in her life. ... She's really happy."
"She's very quick -- she's sly, and smart, and watch out for her," says Billy. "She's a bonafide movie star, and has been for most of my adult life." Joking self-deprecatingly about co-star Javier, Billy says, "We gotta go with what we have, right? He's got masculinity and I've got idiocy."
'Eat Pray Love' finds Julia as Liz Gilbert, a modern woman who, despite having a dream husband, home and career, finds herself lost in life. Determined to wipe the slate clean and get a fresh start, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery that takes her around the globe to exotic locales ranging from Italy and India to Bali, meeting some intriguing men and mentors along the way.
"The men fall in love with Julia Roberts, the women become Julia Roberts' best friend," says Ryan. "She's incredibly empathetic and every single guy in the movie, I thought did the movie because my script was good; no, they did it because they either wanted to kiss Julia Roberts, or hold hands with Julia Roberts, or just hang out with Julia Roberts. ... She's one of those people who has something you want to get to know."
In theaters August 13, the film is based upon the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert and also stars James Franco as a love interest.
