YOU GOTTA LOVE IT, EVEN IF YOU'RE DIVORCING LYLE

Julia Roberts admits it's hard to listen to Lyle Lovett's beautiful music. But sometimes she has no choice.

"It's usually the moments when I'm not in control of the music that's playing that it gets to me," she says.Roberts, whose 21-month marriage to the Texas crooner is ending in divorce, was in a store with her sister Lisa recently when she heard Lovett's voice coming over the sound system.

"We both just sort of looked at each other - and went on buying lip balm or whatever we were doing," the 27-year-old actress says in Entertainment Weekly's Aug. 11 issue from New York. "And then I walked out of the store and I was like, `THAT on top of the rest of my day!"'

Still, she said, the divorce is proceeding amicably - "I mean, it wasn't effortless, but we're friends, so it's not a feud."
