James Gandolfini says Julia Roberts made him gay

It was the direct intervention of Julia Roberts that made Sopranos star James Gandolfini take the role of the gay hit man in the film The Mexican, according to The [London] Mirror. Gandolfini admits, “Julia wanted me to do it, and I didn’t want to do anything that was completely different from Tony Soprano, as I didn’t have a lot of time to do any research. It was a little bit different, but it seemed to fit with me, so I figured, what the hell?” For her part, Roberts told the paper, “It’s so amazing what James does with Tony Soprano. Here he is, a cold-blooded killer. And we love him! That’s quite an achievement.”
