David gets rejected by Julia in Eat, Pray, Love – while he’s buck naked! Oh, the horror!

Julia Roberts is so hot that she can afford to say ‘no’ when a hottie strips down in front of her – which is exactly what happens in her new film, Eat, Pray, Love! So, BFFs, it’s officially time to meet ‘the naked guy’ – otherwise known as David Lyons!

“Ian meets Julia’s character during New Years in Bali,” the hunky Australian actor told us at the film’s NYC premiere August 10, confiding, “And he propositions her on the beach … naked!”

WOW, we are totally jealous – of Julia! In addition to getting to see David’s best bits, he’s also clearly infatuated with her!  “Julia manages to maintain such humility amongst the throng of public obsession,” he gushed. “She’s just a really really beautiful actor … a beautiful person.”

If you’re on the fence about whether to see Eat Pray Love, David – who stars in the upcoming NBC series, The Cape – says you might learn a little something about yourself.

“I don’t have as much estrogen as this story line does and that’s not a bad thing. It’s about rediscovering yourself,” says David. “It’s about rediscovering what you are and Julia plays an amazing part as Liz Gilbert. She’s just got so much nuance in what she does and you want to reach through the screen and give her a hug she’s brilliant.”
