Julia Roberts: Why Matt Damon Wasn't Invited To Mystic Pizza Reunion

(Extra) "Extra's" Renee Bargh caught up with Julia Roberts on the red carpet for the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards where she received honors for her supporting actress role in "August: Osage County."

Julia revealing to Renee that she was nervous to work with co-star Meryl Streep. When asked why, she responded, "Because I'm human!" Renee said, "But you're Julia Roberts." Roberts said, "But she's Meryl Streep!"

Julia went on to say it was amazing once they were on set together, "To be an actor of her caliber you have to have such a depth of your own humanity and understand your place in the world and to know that is to be so gracious and to make everyone else feel comfortable and that's who she is."

Julia also gushing over her recent "Mystic Pizza" reunion for the cover for Entertainment Weekly, "We had such a great day! Annabeth and Lili both have very distinct voices and as soon as they were sitting next to me and they were both talking it was like time stood still, I can't believe it's been 25 years!"

When Renee asked why Matt Damon who made his very first movie debut with a small role in the film wasn't there, Julia jokingly cracked, "Because he was kind of an extra!" more on this story
