Julia Roberts Takes Billy Elliot Star Under her Wing

JULIA ROBERTS was delighted to fulfil her wish to meet BILLY ELLIOT star JAMIE BELL at Hollywood's GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS on Sunday (21JAN01).

The stunning 32-year-old star, who won the BEST ACTRESS award for her role in ERIN BROCKOVICH, invited 15-year-old Bell over to her table at the hotel's TRADER VIC restaurant, where the after-show celebrations were held.

She told him, "Sit. You are so unbelievably good in this Billy Elliot film. Why weren't you nominated in the Globes? You must be nominated for an OSCAR!"
