Julia Roberts Gets Paid $1.5 Million to Smile, Drink Coffee

Starving artist, Julia Roberts, got paid $1.5 million to star in this Italian commercial for Lavazza coffee. Although Roberts doesn’t actually speak in the commercial, she does flash a $1.5 million dollar smile. I’m so happy Julia Roberts got this gig. For a second, I was worried about how she was going to pay her rent, how she was going to be able to survive in this terrible economy. She’s been grossly underpaid her entire career and terribly under-appreciated. You guys, Julia is finally getting the respect she deserves!

Roberts isn’t the only celebrity who’s cashed in abroad. Lindsay Lohan, for example, got her drug money by also doing European commercials. We’re not sure what she’s actually selling in this bizarre Italian commercial for Fornarina but we know we’re buying.

Brad Pitt sold coffee in Japan.

George Clooney sold coffee in France.

George Clooney. Brad Pitt. Julia Roberts. Like Lindsay Lohan, they’re career-challenged actors who’ve had to go abroad to make ends meet. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
