Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts ("Erin Brockovich"), who was last seen in the romantic drama "Eat Pray Love," is this year's recipient of the American Society of Cinematographers Board of Governors Award.

The star of such hits as "Pretty Woman," "My Best Friend's Wedding" and "Notting Hill" will receive the honor at the 25th annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards gala on Feb. 13 at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland.

"Cinematographers and actors have a special rapport that begins with mutual trust," said ASC Awards Committee chairman Richard Crudo. "Julia brings something extra to that relationship and further elevates what we do with her beauty and grace. She's a gift to every cinematographer she works with."
