Julia Roberts Explains Why She's Never Watched 'Game Of Thrones'

Julia Roberts Explains Why She's Never Watched 'Game Of Thrones' Millions of people are expected to tune in to the long-awaited “Game of Thrones” finale on Sunday night ― but Julia Roberts will not be among them. “Too scary. Maybe too much sex,” the “Homecoming” star told Patricia Arquette in a clip from “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors,” which will come out in June. Arquette confirmed that “there’s a lot of sex” on the HBO show, as well as “zombies and stuff.” “Then it’s for sure not for me,” Roberts said.

Roberts has dropped to fourth centre option at Brisbane after failing to earn an NRL recall this week despite a knee injury to Jack Bird.

Bird was considered the frontrunner to replace his out-of-form teammate for game one, only to be ruled for the season.

However Fittler may have no choice but to stick with Roberts, who will only have one more week to press his claims before Origin teams are named next week.

Visa issues have prevented the 26-year-old from playing with Wynnum-Manly in their away trip to Papua New Guinea this week.

Fittler said picking a reserve grader had been done before.

"I'm pretty sure there was a hooker from Manly, Ray Brown, they picked out of reserve grade," Fittler said at the Origin launch on Wednesday.

Johns reveals Blues' Origin X-factor

Johns reveals Blues' Origin X-factor Rugby league Immortal Andrew Johns has made a bold prediction about a player who he believes will be the difference-maker for the Blues in this year's Origin series.

"He used to win a lot back then, so I'm gathering he went alright. (NSW) had a pretty strong team and they were pretty loyal back then with the team."

Fittler admitted being worried about the challenge of defending what shapes as a lethal Queensland left edge.

"That's so important, that position on the right there," he said of Roberts' spot.

"Their left side is so brutal when you've got Cam Munster and possibly Kalyn Ponga and these fellas coming down that side.

"That's without doubt the toughest part of my job, getting that right.

"So we're going to give right up until next Sunday to see who we'll pick and James Roberts is still in contention."

Fittler revealed Blake Ferguson as a candidate to replace Tom Trbojevic, who is unlikely to make it back in time as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Ferguson hasn't played for NSW since his infamous pub visit before the 2017 decider, and controversially opted not to attend a Blues camp in the summer.

'I said Hunt I promise': Erin Molan bursts into laughter after NRL legend Brad Fittler drops the C-bomb on air

'I said Hunt I promise': Erin Molan bursts into laughter after NRL legend Brad Fittler drops the C-bomb on air Channel Nine NRL commentator Brad Fittler left Erin Molan in stitches after making a very awkward blunder on live television. The NSW Origin coach accidentally dropped the C-bomb during an appearance on The Sunday Footy Show panel. The 47-year-old former rugby league star had been chatting about the Queensland Origin team and its hooker Ben Hunt when he bungled the words 'can' and 'Hunt'. Fittler had evidently been attempting to say 'Ben Hunt can' but muddled the words and accidentally blurted out the rude word.

"Blake's a part of the discussions," Fittler said.

"I spoke to Blake in the off-season. I also spoke to him about a month or so ago. I get to see him week in, week out, I watched him last week out at Parramatta.

"(It was) disappointing what happened up in Magic Round (The Eels loss 64-10 to Melbourne), but once again, ten days (left) and he's on that right side that's so important to us."

Left for scrap: Stolen gravestone plaques of ex-military personnel dumped at Perth scrap yard.
Stolen gravestone plaques of ex-military personnel taken from a cemetery south of Perth before Anzac Day were sold for scrap and sadly left to be recycled. About four of at least 10 name plates taken from East Rockingham Pioneer Cemetery over the Easter long weekend were recently found in pieces by police at a local recycling plant. It’s unclear where the other grave markings ended up but it is likely they met with the same fate. One family, however, were over the moon to have the gravestone plaque of their beloved returned in one piece ahead of the national remembrance day.
