Celebrities like George Clooney and Bruce Willis make a decent amount money by starring in commercials in foreign countries. Today, we have a 45-second ad for Lavazza coffee starring Julia Roberts.
The actress was paid $1.5 million to appear in the commercial, which was shot two weeks ago in Rome. It's completely in Italian and features Paolo Bonolis and Luca Laurenti trying to convince Roberts to smile so they can paint her.
The only thing Roberts had to do was just stand there, take a sip of coffee and grin. She doesn't say a single word, which makes this whole thing incredibly awkward. Check out the ad below.

I don't know what's more incredible: that she made more money than most people make their entire life while doing less work than a dead guy, or the fact someone thinks she's beautful enough to paint. What, do they think she's da Vinci's Madonna?
Compound a fantasy life 99.99% of people on the planet can only imagine with her preachy personality, and I'm just looking for a god I can pray to give her herpes.

I'd toss her a bag of Folgers instant coffee to take it up the rump, but that's it.

Stupid bitch. She ugly. She was never as pretty the media portrayed her. Never even had the body. She's the madonna of acting. She needs to just get the f*ck away already.

Video: Julia Roberts Paid $1.5 Million for This Commercial .... but not a dime in fixing up that f*cking face of hers ... I mean, f*ck ... it makes me think I'm looking at a living Picasso portrait, while drinking absinthe...
