Julia Roberts Rattled by Rat

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Julia Roberts was petrified when a giant rat ran over her foot while shooting her latest movie.

The actress was filming scenes in New York with her co-star James Franco when the furry rodent scuttled across her toes, causing her to scream.

“She looked down and saw the glittering eyes of a giant rat! She leapt to her feet and, even though the rat had run away, went into a wild hysterical dance on the sidewalk. She was shrieking so loudly the crew came running,” a source told National Enquirer magazine.

Julia was reportedly so upset she had to be calmed down by James, and would only continue with the scene when he promised her there were no more rats in the vicinity.

The 41-year-old actress plays Elizabeth Gilbert in the movie, a woman who realizes she is not satisfied with her life and goes on a round-the-world trip. The film is based off the best-selling book of the same name.
