A hotel chauffeur has been sacked for sending a card and rose to sexy actress JULIA ROBERTS.
The ERIN BROCKOVICH star was staying in Las Vegas' HYATT REGENCY HOTEL while filming AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS with CATHERINE ZETA- JONES when DOUG SWARTZ sent the hopeful note to Roberts, who is currently dating BENJAMIN BRATT. It read, "I know you probably have everything you need and more but if there is anything I can do to make your stay better, please don't hesitate to call."
Her bodyguard complained, and hotel bosses subsequently fired the 40-year-old, telling him he was "weird", and had behaved like a stalker. However, Swartz disagreed, "I am not obsessed with her. I was only sending my regards." (ES/WNTRE/CPT)
