Julia Roberts - Julia Roberts Reunites With Mystic Pizza Cast
Julia Roberts has reunited with her Mystic Pizza castmates to mark the 25th anniversary of the cult coming-of-age movie.
The Hollywood star joined Vincent D'Onofrio, Lili Taylor, Annabeth Gish, Adam Storke and William R. Moses for a trip down memory lane last month (Sep13) as the former co-stars got together in Los Angeles to reminisce about making the film, about three teenage girls working in a pizza parlour in Mystic, Connecticut.
During a filmed interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine, which aired on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Wednesday (16Oct13), Roberts revealed her most memorable moment on set was when she had to topple a large barrel of live fish all over a Porsche sports car belonging to her onscreen boyfriend, played by Storke.
She recalled, "My legs were really sore. I was pushing that giant barrel full of water over all night long."
Meanwhile, D'Onofrio confessed he almost turned down the film role but signed up after attending a cast reading with Roberts and her female co-stars.
He was blown away by the ladies' talents, revealing, "You just knew when you met Julia that she was going to be a huge star. There was no doubt in our minds, any of us, that she was like a bomb waiting to go off when you met her."
