Julia Roberts's smile worth 1.6 million

The Oscar winning actress been paid more than a whopping $1.6 million for a 45-second coffee commercial where she doesn't even speak. The Oscar winner filmed the spot in Rome earlier this month for Lavazza, an Italian coffee brand, the Daily Mail newspaper in the UK reports.

In the advertisement, Roberts appears as the goddess Venus, with an actor playing famed painter Sandro Botticelli, who is unhappy his subject won't smile. But when Roberts takes a sip of espresso, she can't help but smile her famous toothy grin.

Sure the Italians love a celebrity but they're also pretty picky abouth their coffee beans. Someone who might have more pull is her former Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney filmed his own ad - one more than twice as long and filled with humorous dialogue - for Nespresso.

Julia Roberts' movie career arguably has plateaued but her face is obviously still a worldwide seller. Not bad for 45 seconds the work she has given. I think she really does have a million dollar smile. Would you buy a cup of coffee because Julia Roberts smiled at you? Please comment.

I have been to my Raleigh dentist
and we were able to chat about the famous signature smile of Julia Roberts. I, and the rest of the
Raleigh dentistry admire it so much.
I was kidding my dentist to turn my teeth to something like Julia's.
