The most “ridiculous” portion of filming the latest romantic comedy from actors George Clooney and Julia Roberts was revealed.
Regarding the two people’s friendship that has lasted for more than 20 years, TODAY co-anchor Hoda Kotb questioned Clooney and Roberts about if it was awkward to kiss “your dear, dear friend.”
With a smile, Clooney responded, “It’s when my wife and kids come by to visit.”
Roberts continued, “I mean, it was the first day they came to visit. “‘Papa, oh, Auntie Juju,’ it sounds like. “Get ’em out, get ’em out!” is how it feels.”
It’s terrible, continued Clooney. “Papa, what are you doing?” Whoa, what’s that?”
Later, the pair admitted that Clooney’s children weren’t present when the kissing sequence was being filmed. They weren’t there, Clooney laughed, “No, they weren’t there.
A divorced couple is followed in “Ticket to Paradise” as they journey to Bali to prevent their daughter from getting married to a new man she recently met. Since 2001’s “Ocean Eleven,” Roberts and Clooney have appeared in six movies together, and their connection is palpable on and off the screen.
When Kotb questioned whether they laughed while they were kissing, Roberts acknowledged that it was entertaining to shoot.
It’s somewhat absurd, Roberts said. “Kissing your best buddy is like that,”
Well, thank you for that, Clooney said. “You know I’ve won ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ twice?”
Roberts laughed, “Wait,” he said. You say, “Wait, my best friend is George Clooney,” at that point.
Clooney and Roberts were similarly transparent about their later-in-life parenthood. Ella and Alexander, twins who are five years old, are the children of Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney, while Hazel, Phinnaeus, and Henry are the children of Roberts and her husband, Daniel Moder.
The truth is that their children have chosen us at this moment to be their stewards and shepherds in this life experience, regardless of how old we are — George being the eldest among us, Roberts remarked. “When I was prepared, I met Danny. When you were prepared, you met Amal. When we are ready to work best with them, we invite these kids into our lives.”
Hoda enquired whether the two would collaborate on another movie in the future.
“No way. It will not take place. I’ve realised my mistake, “Clooney said while giggling.
Meanwhile, he has included me in his contract, according to Roberts. He is dependent on my presence on TV.
Clooney jokingly remarked, “She’s also the best available, truly.”
Clooney exclaimed in response to Roberts’ obscenity as Roberts retorted, “I’m such a… It’s the morning show here!”
