It’s been eight years since Julia Roberts’s last big leading role, Eat Pray Love, hit theaters.

Back in 2010, before Katy Perry clung to her fame by agreeing to star in the ill-fated reboot of American Idol, releasing embarrassing, meme-filled music videos, and participating in days-long livestreams, she did it the old-fashioned way: by starting a relationship with someone way out of left field.
