Hollywood star JULIA ROBERTS courted controversy this week (ends03NOV06) when she posed for photographs with chained monkeys in Morocco.

The Oscar winner took time out of filming CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR in the North African country to enjoy the sights of Marrakech.

Roberts succumbed to the tourist attraction of cuddling up with performing Barbary monkeys in the city's famed Djemaa El Fna.
