Julia Roberts reckons she's too old for romantic comedies

Julia Roberts has confessed that she believes she is too old to star in romantic comedies.

The Hollywood actress, 42, is about to play a woman who divorces her husband and travels around the world in new film Eat Pray Love.

But asked whether she'd consider a romantic comedy, the Pretty Woman star told OK! magazine: "I think I'm too old for those silly situations of unrequited love!"

She added: "It becomes less plausible when you're in your forties to be falling down in the hallway because a boy walks by!

"I've read a couple lately that are more original and more mature, but they just didn't seem like a fit for me."

Eat Pray Love is based on a memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Julia, took time out from Hollywood to look after twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, five, and three-year-old Henry, before returning to the big screen.
