Bardem: Roberts easy to work with

Javier Bardem has said working with Julia Roberts on Eat, Pray, Love was "easy".

"I'm always saying that the great actress that she is we all knew. I'm not discovering anything here," said Javier, who co-stars with Julia in the movie directed by Ryan Murphy.

"But I didn't know the person and I was very impressed about how generous she is and how fun to work with her. And then when were fighting, after work we were having a good laugh."

Speaking at the movie's New York premiere, Javier added he wouldn't be able to choose whether to eat, pray or love if he had to pick only one.

"The three of them? Why (would) people want to choose one?" said the 41-year-old actor, who married Penelope Cruz last month. "That's why it's called Eat, Pray, Love. The movie talks about the importance of feeding yourself for things that make you be healthier. The three of them are very important."

He added: "Even if you don't practice any religion, we all pray. When things get wrong we all close our eyes and we hope that there is somebody stronger and wiser and more able than us that can help us."
