Date: 10th January 2001
JULIA ROBERTS only signed on to star in OCEAN's ELEVEN so she could flirt with her hunky male co-stars.
The ERIN BROCKOVICH star will join BRAD PITT, GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON and CASEY AFFLECK for the high profile movie, which will be directed by her pal STEVEN SODERBERGH.
She says, "I'm just looking for a good time in Vegas. I was furious Steven didn't put me in TRAFFIC, so I think he threw me a little mercy friendship bone with Ocean's Eleven. "He said to me, `You're the only girl, you'll like it'." The film starts shooting later this month (JAN01). (MB/WN/KW)
