Roberts will be at the Spanish event to present “Eat Pray Love,” along with co-stars Javier Bardem and Richard Jenkins and director Ryan Murphy. Pic will play out of competition.
Adapting Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestseller about a woman’s globe-trotting journey of self-discovery, “Eat Pray Love” was released wide by Sony in the U.S. on Friday and made an estimated $23.7 million over the weekend.
Roberts’ Donostia Award coincides with the international rollout of “Eat,” which bows in Italy and Japan on Sept. 17, and in Spain a week later.
The fest noted that Roberts “has participated in some of the biggest movie hits of the last 20 years” and worked with directors including Steven Spielberg, Gary Marshall, Mike Newell, Woody Allen, Neil Jordan, Joel Schumacher and Stephen Frears.
Previous recipents of the honor have included Hollywood greats Bette Davis and Claudette Colbert and modern masters Francis Ford Coppola and Robert de Niro.
Fest closes Sept. 25.
