'Eat Pray Love' receives new PG-13 rating

Julia Roberts feature was originally rated R

"Eat Pray Love," the new Julia Roberts feature that Sony will release Aug. 13, has successfully appealed the R rating it was originally awarded by the Classification and Ratings Administration of the MPAA.

After director Ryan Murphy and producer Dede Gardner argued their case on behalf of Columbia Pictures before the appeals board, the movie was given a less restrictive PG-13 rating for "brief strong language, some sexual references and male rear nudity."

Based on the memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, "Eat" stars Roberts as a recently-divorced woman who embarks on a globe-trotting quest for self-discovery.

CARA was represented by its chairman Joan Graves at the appeals hearing, which announced its decision Wednesday.
