When it comes to hosting, India seems to prefer Julia Roberts over Angelina Jolie.

Roberts is currently shooting in Haryana for Eat, Pray, Love, while Jolie was in Pune in 2006 for filming A Mighty Heart.

Even when comparing with Bollywood actresses like Aishwarya Rai, Roberts appears to be comparatively scoring higher points, reports suggest.

Roberts seems to have won all she interacted with in India — villagers, media persons following her, and the Indian crew members.

Qualities reportedly appreciated in Roberts include simplicity, humility, relaxed appearance, accessibility, professionalism, down-to-earth style, drinking chai and street-walking with natives, eating with all the crew (while Jolie reportedly ate only with American or non-Indian crew), sticks to schedule, throws no tantrums or airs, does her homework thoroughly before shooting day, moved around barefoot, preferred walking over riding car to small distances, etc.
