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

(Thought Cloud) 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!
