London: Hollywood star Julia Roberts has appreciated actor Brad Pitt for his job as executive producer, insisting he was the perfect boss while filming the movie ‘Eat Pray Love’.

The Seven actor was behind the camera on the set of the film, which stars Roberts as real-life writer Liz Gilbert, who embarks on a journey of self-discovery around the world.

And the ‘Pretty Woman’ star has given Pitt the thumbs-up in his role as a movie manager - because his hands-off approach encouraged the actors to push their talents to the limit.

"He is great because he leaves us all alone and lets us do the jobs that he`s entrusted us with, and then you just get the occasional visit or occasional email that is encouraging and sweet. He`s a lovely person," the Daily Express quoted Roberts as telling This Morning.
