Filming ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ helped Julia Roberts prepare for a 13.5-mile marathon which her husband Danny Moder convinced her to run for charity.

The actress admitted that shooting in hot weather in countries such as India, Bali and Italy meant she was trained for the event in California in December last year.

“I trained a lot while I was doing the movie and it was so hot there, I think it was to my advantage that I had trained under such dire circumstances,” the Daily Express quoted her, as saying.

She added: “I just wanted to show my kids that the power of a female body is more than just giving birth, which is a great power… and my kids were out there, they made me a sign.”
