"This is heartbreaking, challenging material, and I don't know if I would want to go out and pay $20 and sit in a theatre with a bunch of strangers and start opening that time box. To be able sit in the comfort of your own home, I think people will have a more honest experience with it." Julia Roberts is glad The Normal Heart, her tough-to-watch new drama about the early days of the Aids outbreak, will not be hitting cinemas. The film will hit cable network HBO later this month (May14).
