Julia Roberts managed to defuse a potentially embarassing celebrity show - by trading the programme for exclusive coverage of her new movie.

When she found out celebrity-themed TV channel E! was planning to do a special on her love life, Julia was not pleased, according to gossip source PAGE SIX.

The LOVE CHAIN show would have focused on her many romances, from an early marriage to Lyle Lovett and relationships with Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric and Benjamin Bratt to her current marriage to DANNY MODER.

But instead of getting angry, clever Julia kept her cool - and offered thrilled TV bosses an exclusive about her new movie Mona Lisa Smile if they promised to axe the idea.
