Why Julia Roberts Turned Down THE NORMAL HEART Twice Before Saying Yes
by BWW News Desk - Apr 21, 2014

HBO will soon release it's highly anticipated film version of The Normal Heart, and according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, securing Jula Roberts as 'Dr. Brookner' wasn't an easy feat.

Everything fell into place for me after that. I could see these are just really scared people who won't give up on finding the answers.' (more...)
