‘Eat Pray Love’ leaves Catholic leaders with indigestion

HollywoodNews.com: Catholic leaders are apparently perturbed that Julia Roberts’ character in “Eat Pray Love” doesn’t bother to worship at a basilica in its Italian setting, despite feasting at every eatery in Rome.

In addition, they are not pleased with Roberts protagonist indulging in an “unhealthy atmosphere of semi-idolatrous worship” as she beseeches the spiritual support of two Eastern gurus in the film.

Officials at the Catholic News Service in Washington delivered a scathing review of the feature adaption of Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestselling memoirs.

The service criticized, “Though she seemingly hits every restaurant in town, she gives the churches a pass, the implication being that she knows better than to look to Catholicism for insight.”

The Catholic News service gave “Eat Pray Love” an L classification, which means “limited adult audience.” The organization believes that audiences will find the Julia Roberts headliner has “problematic content.”

“Eat Pray Love” has made close to $30 million at the domestic B.O. to date.

Julia Roberts recently revealed to Elle Magazine that she is a practicing Hindu.

U.K.’s The Sun had the story.
