Julia Roberts has claimed she still gets nervous about her new film projects, including her latest movie.
However the Pretty Woman star said the nerves - about the big-screen adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love - were a good thing.
"If I'm not feeling anxious and excited and nervous, then I haven't invested much in it and I shouldn't be there," she said. "So, really, I just want to put myself in a position where I am really feeling like I have to ramp up and accomplish my goals."
And Julia wasn't the only one feeling anxious - director Ryan Murphy confessed facing a bout of nerves before meeting his star.
"I was really nervous before I met her because I have been a fan, too. I have seen all of her movies," he said.
"Nothing surprises me about her because what you see is what you get with Julia, which is why I think people love her and why she lasts and continues to last. Because she is very sincere, very empathetic, and compassionate. What I didn't know is how funny she was."
