Winston, a lot of superstars and the like move abroad permanently. Brad Pitt and Jolie have a large estate in France that they live on most of the year. Depp moved to France a long time ago and married a French woman. I think Terry Gilliam totally renounced his U.S. citizenship in favor of U.K. citizenship. There are a lot of others too that live abroad.

So why do so many superstars like to move abroad? Aren't their lives in the USA and Hollywood a total "dream come true"? What more do they need that Europe would offer them?

But of course, as we all know, celebrities can't be too truthful. They can only say politically correct things to reporters and the media. So if Depp has reasons about why his life in France is better than the US, or why he likes the culture there better, he can't just say it straight out. lol

Btw, that Julia Roberts trailer was for a movie called "Eat Pray Love" where she goes on a journey of self-discovery by traveling around the world. She plays a character who is happier abroad. But as to whether the real Julia Roberts is happier abroad or not, I can't say. But then again, even if she was, she can't just say it straight out. Celebrities can't risk damaging their reputation by criticizing their own culture. To do so would be "biting the hand that feeds you".

Winston, Johnny Depp has said some incredibly anti-American statements while abroad; so have many other celebrities as Repatriate as mentioned. Google what Kate Hudson, Harry Belafonte, Sean Penn, and especially Gwyneth Kate Paltrow (lives in U.K.) have said about America. I think the fact many American celebrities get the see the world outside of the U.S., opens their eyes in a lot of cases to the B.S. that goes on in this country.

Ok I just saw the film "Eat Pray Love" with Julia Roberts. Not bad at all. It captures the spirit of travel.

The scenes in India where she tries to meditate are funny, and something we can all relate to. There was also a scene in Rome in a barber shop where a guy gives Julia Roberts a rant that Americans don't know how to enjoy pleasure, only entertainment, and how they don't know how to truly live. It was very accurate and I'm surprised that a movie would broadcast such typical comments made by Europeans.

But I got to wonder, how come they would make a movie about a wife escaping the rut of her marriage to travel the world and meet many handsome charming men who all treat her like a princess, but they don't make any films about a guy who leaves his wife to go meet many charming women with positive results?

Also, Julia Roberts looks over the hill now, and it shows. It's not likely that handsome foreign men would fall for her character like that and chase her to try to win her love. Yeah right.
