Hollywood actress Julia Roberts, who has starred in popular films such as 'Pretty Women' and 'Notting Hill' was the guest of honour at the Bernabeu this past Sunday for the El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona.

As reported by ​Give Me Sport, as part of her visit Roberts was taken on a tour of the Bernabeu Stadium and had photos taken with players from both sets of teams after the game.


Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi along with several other players posed with the actress including Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos.

Ramos was sent off in the second half for a reckless challenge on Lionel Messi and the video below from @TheFootballRep  shows actress Roberts saying to Ramos that he 'played amazing'.

The 49-year-old actress was probably just trying to be polite to Ramos but that hasn't stopped the internet finding the funny side of this video at Ramos' expense.


This was the 22nd time in his career that Ramos had been sent off for Madrid and after Barca managed to snatch a late 3-2 winner on Sunday, it's fair to say Ramos let his side down on Sunday by losing his head at a crucial time.

Both sides scored league wins in entertaining fashion on Wednesday night, Barca beating Osasuna 7-1 and Real beating Deportivo 6-2, but the Catalans still lead La Liga on goal difference despite Real having a game in hand on their rivals.
