BENJAMIN BRATT got tongues wagging when he turned up to the world premiere of his new film - without his girlfriend JULIA ROBERTS.
Bratt arrived at the Los Angeles, California party for MISS CONGENIALITY last night (14DEC00) - with only his mother by his side. But he insisted the public no-show was because Julia was ill and recovering in bed.
Although he didn't specify where Roberts was recovering he said, "I am taking care of her as best I can over the phone, she's here in spirit though." (MB/WN/RGS)
