Real people who inspire movie characters
As you all probably know, Eat, Pray, Love starring Julia Roberts hits movie theaters tonight. I gotta say I really want to watch this movie and finally read the book (shame, shame, shame on me for taking it so long).
Anyways, as we all know, Eat, Pray, Love is based on the emotional memoir of Elizabeth Gilbert, the lead character of the movie played by Julia Roberts.
It ofter happens in Hollywood that films based on real people are always super successful both in box office, reviews, dvd sales, everything. Sometimes we don’t even know that this or that movie is actually based on a true story, though knowing that makes the movie even more exciting to watch, maybe because it makes a movie kind of more personal and more real, in the most fairy-tale meaning of the word.
So as I’ve already said, I’m looking forward to Eat, Pray, Love tonight.
In case you missed it before, check out the trailer to see what I mean:
And here’s the real Elizabeth Gilbert, the author and the main character of the book. They did a great job to make Julia Roberts look a lot like her.
