He's no movie star.. but Julia Roberts is all over him. A man in Chile has taken fanaticism to a whole new level - adorning his body with 82 tattoos of the Oscar-winning actress. Fifty-six-year-old Miljenko Bukovic says his obsession with Roberts began in 2001 after he saw her film, Erin Brockovich. SOUNDBITE: Miljenko Parserisas Bukovic, Julia Roberts fan, saying (Spanish) "The woman is great, she's beautiful, she's an American actress." The tattoos cover his chest, back and arms and feature pictures of Roberts from her various films. But his tattoo artist says there's one image of Roberts you won't see on Bukovic's body. SOUNDBITE: Leonardo Alarcon, tattoo artist, saying (Spanish) "Once I was talking to him about 'Pretty Woman' and no, he doesn't like me to talk about Julia Roberts there because she's a prostitute there. That isn't the Julia Roberts he loves." The dedicated fan has spent more than 4,000 U.S. dollars on ink, and is already saving up to get yet another image of his favorite actress printed onto his skin. Now all he needs to do is find a space. Gemma Haines, Reuters.
