Julia Roberts film hit by Bali protests
October 21st, 2009

Dozens of angry Indonesian villagers demanded thousands of dollars from a crew filming Julia Roberts’ new movie Eat, Pray, Love.

Officials say that when the crew arrived in Bali’s Bentuyung village a month ahead of schedule, locals blocked roads and demanded $US32,000 ($A35,000).

“There was a misunderstanding. The crew came in 20 trucks … earlier than their scheduled shooting on November 10, so the villagers were offended and blocked the roads,” district chief Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati told AFP.

“They asked for 300 million rupiah to use the location for filming.

“I was very embarrassed and told them this was unacceptable.”

He says the problem was resolved and the crew allowed through, but added he would like to make it up to Roberts by inviting her to lunch at his house.

“Everything is okay now. The villagers understand. Many local and international films have been shot here with no problem at all,” he said.

Eat, Pray, Love is based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestselling memoir of the same name.
