James Franco makes a bigscreen appearance opposite Julia Roberts in 'Eat, Pray, Love,' out August 13. He talked with Parade magazine about his stint on 'General Hospital,' being a PhD student and bedding the "shy" Pretty Woman.
On working with Julia:
"It was fun, she's great. She's a pro. We spent a little time together before we started filming and we got along from the beginning."
On starring opposite Hollywood's ultimate leading lady:
"That was pretty much the reason I did it. I knew that all my scenes would be with Julia. I thought it would be a great experience."
On sex scenes:
"She is very, very outgoing. But I think she'll also admit pretty freely that she doesn't love to do love scenes and actually was charmingly shy when we had to do them."
