NEVER GET ASKED OUT? NEITHER DOES ROBERTS

SHARE NEVER GET ASKED OUT? NEITHER DOES ROBERTS

Julia Roberts says it's a brave man who dares to ask for a date.

"Nobody ever asks me out. Ever. Almost never. Almost absolutely never," she told Entertainment Weekly magazine. "Look, if you read the paper, you figure I'm booked till, like, 2004. Like, why would you even ask me? I've got so many balls in the air, I can hardly stand up!"One man who did ask was Matthew Perry of "Friends."

"I love being engaged in conversation with this man, because he's so terribly clever," she said. "Wit is the key, I think, to anybody's heart, because who doesn't like to laugh? Who? Show me the person who doesn't like to laugh, and I'll show you a person with a toe tag."
