Julia Roberts is Dave Matthews' 'Dreamgirl'

143154__jr_lNo wonder Julia Roberts made Dave Matthews Band’s ”Dreamgirl” video her first post-childbirth gig; apparently, it didn’t require her to get out of her nightdress or wash her hair. The clip premieres Wednesday at 11 on VH1, but you can see it already at VH1.com. The Dave Meyers-directed video sends a lank-haired Roberts drifting through a nightmare that has her sleepwalking around various New York City locations, pursued by a faceless man and sheltered by each member of DMB at moments throughout the dream.

It’s very conceptual, sorta like a-Ha’s ”Take on Me,” but without the pencil drawings. Somehow, I don’t picture Roberts onstage at next year’s MTV Video Music Awards, swiping a Moonman statuette from Matthews or Meyers and saying, ”I love my life!”

    “…a lank-haired Roberts…” By “lank” do you mean “filthy”? Who thought that hairstyle was a good idea? Ick.

    Good it is her. I sat at my tv trying to figure out if it was her or a look alike. And you are all right, who did her hair…eeek. Anyhow the song rocks.

    Dave Matthews has excellent taste in women. I wonder if he made love to Julia during the filming of this movie. Wouldn’t that be a match made in heaven???

    Great choice of Girl! Bad choice of Hairdo!

  • Cassie

    You all are too traditional. I am in love with her hair in this movie! How did she do it?

    I do not know what this is about but I can say Dave is the most talented musician in the entire existance of this earth. I love every single thing he does, call it excessive but his voice,lyrics, all the instuments he has in his band drive me crazy. It is the kind of music I wish I could here on every radio station I tune into. He is incepuionlly talented and a true artist. I was turned onto him in ’98 and have never let him go. Everything I could find on him I have. If I could speak with him or read his blogs I would but can’t find any. Please help. Love A True Devoted Dave fannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn> Jamie Wylie

    Dreamgirl is definitely DMB’s best video. Julia Roberts is simply irresistable in it.
