This Sunday, The Times pays a visit to Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert’s store-it’s located in New Jersey and sells Southeast Asian imports. In between showing off her teak boxes and giant Buddhas, Gilbert has a lot to say! For example:
- On her store, which she purchased and renovated with the movie money: “This should be called the Julia Roberts Memorial Building.”
- On the movie: “I do not have any trouble telling the difference between me and Julia Roberts.”
- On Javier Bardem: “I fell in love with my husband all over again.”
- On bracelets her store sells: “If I were a 9-year-old girl, I would have killed and field-dressed someone to have these gorgeous, sparkly bracelets on my arm.”
- On what the Times described as “small primitive-looking heads:” “These are boundary gods. They protect and watch over your boundaries. I give them to every woman I know. I keep one next to my computer to remind myself not to say ‘yes’ to everyone.”
Except for Julia Roberts and Ryan Murphy, we presume.
