Julia Roberts is keen to be Paul Newman's co-star when he makes his final movie - and she wants to play his girlfriend.

Newman recently announced plans to make just one more movie before bowing out of the film world, and when Roberts learned of his intentions during a joint appearance on breakfast show Good Morning America yesterday (13APR05), she begged for a role.

She squealed, "Do it with me! I'm serious! Play my boyfriend!"

Newman responded, "Okay... Boy, that'll shake 'em up."

In truth, Newman is planning to make his final movie with his BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID co-star Robert Redford, about two pals hiking the Appalachian trail, older and wiser.
