Julia Roberts was starstruck backstage at her own movie premiere. Apparently a big fan of the rock band Kings of Leon, Julia Roberts was overheard calling the band "amazing" and saying that she was "really uncomfortable around them."
An unnamed source overheard Julia Robert’s remarks in the green room during the screening for her new film August, Osage County. She then invited the band to join the cast in the photo op. EntertainmentWise reports that the superstar actress still gets starstruck and was especially so when she first met co-star Meryl Streep.
During the after party, everyone (including Kings of Leon, Roberts and the cast) left the VIP section for the dance floor. Meryl Streep, who has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in August, Osage County, was unable to attend because she is already working on another project reports Page Six.
The premiere was sponsored by DeLeon Tequila, and producer Harvey Weinstein promoted the company in his remarks to the crowd saying, "You’re gonna need to drink a whole bottle of tequila by the end of the night, and you’ll know why after seeing this movie."
