Continued off the movie. I didn't like the movie, but it's kinda sexy.
Eat Pray Love
Artemis is 23, traveling alone through Europe, trying to find herself inspired by the book Eat Pray Love. She's a shy girl who keeps to herself usually. She's innocent, just trying to stay healthy and get her work done, she never worried about how she looked and never had a boyfriend---but she's just one of those girls that manages to look stunning no matter what she wears or how does her hair. She finds herself spending a lot of time on beaches, staying in hostels and meeting tons of people. She feels like she's coming out of her shell a little. One day in Zaragoza, Spain, she meets a girl named Ginny from the UK. Ginny is a platinum blonde, a professional traveler and classy party-attendee. Ginny takes Artemis under her wing, taking her shopping, to the best topless beach, and then that night to the best club. Ginny helps Artemis get ready. It's a classy place, made-up to look like a smoking lounge. Ginny is just good at getting into classy clubs, but the doormen can tell that Artemis is shy and one steals a kiss before she goes inside. The coat-checker takes one look at the girls and a host comes over, showing the girls around and introducing them to what looks like a very rich group of guys. Ginny's other friends instantly find guys to flirt with and buy them drinks and even Ginny dissapears almost instantly. As they're ushered to the table, Artemis looks over at the bar. A gorgeous scruffy young man is sitting there talking to his friends, who also look pretty hot. He makes eye contact with her for a second before she looks away, but she glances up again and sees his friends obviously commenting on the group of girls. The gorgeous guy seems kind of quiet all of a sudden. She hangs around with the girls for a while. Ginny seems to be busy with a guy in a really expensive suit. Soon, she escapes to the bar, trying to avoid the guy who was sitting next to her. She ends up sitting at the bar, watching the people on the dance floor. It seems like the club is full of rich people and plastic girls that can't dance. As shy as she is, Artemis knows she could be sexier than those girls... if she tried. She is super bored, but can't leave without Ginny's card-key to get back into the hostel.
All of a sudden two guys from the VIP table come up around her, touching her and being stupid. Within thirty seconds the gorgeous guy is next to her, jokingly telling the guys off in a beautifully smooth Spanish voice. They guys seem to know him and laugh, joking that he deserves the babe after the plays he pulled off today. Artemis realizes they're talking about her and is embarrassed, but suddenly the gorgeous guy and her are alone. He's talking to her so calmly and she's answering back so cooly. He's complimenting her, buying her drinks. His name is Gerard and she just feels so comfortable and safe.
....but then she gets drunk. And stupid. She suggest that they should go dance, which they do. She's so happy and shows him how real American girls dance. The Spanish ladies are all shocked by her moves. Gerard is laughing and dancing beside her. It's her favorite song, apparently. She suddenly is dancing near him and they're grinding against each other and their lips are so close and suddenly she's kissing him. Gerard leads her off the floor, still making out as they go. They're in a back hallway and he's touching her now. He suggests they go to his hotel room. She breathlessly and stupidly agrees, but then passes out in his arms. ...Yeah, she's not very good at staying up late or drinking.
She wakes up the next morning alone in a huge comfy bed in a baggy sports shirt and her underwear and bra, her fancy dress laid across a chair. Artemis puts on the baggy sports shirt that's laid out on the edge of the bed.
It turns out that his room is a suite with multiple bedrooms. She goes out into the kitchen area and runs into another woman. The other woman laughs about how Gerard is such a player and gives Artemis some eggs. Gerard walks in on both women and doesn't seem very responsive. He touches Artemis' shoulder and smiles. The other woman leaves soon and Gerard is cleaning up the dishes. Artemis sits on the counter and asks Gerard if they had sex last night. Gerard says no.
She's been on tour with Brittany Spears and Lady Gaga. She's modeled in Europe and is living in a house of models in New York City. The douche bags living with her make her life interesting.
