Julia Roberts was away from her family during the filming of “Ticket to Paradise”, but fortunately she had her friend and colleague George Clooney to keep her company.
The two spoke to The New York Times about being quarantined next to each other in Australia while filming the film.
“We started filming on Hamilton Island, with all these wild birds, and Julia had her house near us. I was with Amal and the children. I used to go out early in the morning and do ‘Ciu-ciu’. Julia used to go out and do ‘Ciu-ciu’ too. And then we had a cup of coffee. She’s Aunt Juju to my kids,” Clooney said.
For Julia Roberts it was more than a morning coffee with her friend and his family. It was salvation, it was being on the move, in touch with the world, since her husband and three children were away.
“The Clooneys saved me from complete loneliness and despair. We were in a bubble and it was the longest time I’ve been away from my family. “I haven’t been alone for so long since I was 25,” said Julia Roberts.
And while they have been good friends for years, Julia and George found it difficult to share a kiss in the film. They played the role of two ex-husbands who team up to stop their daughter from getting married.
“It took us 79 to laugh and then kiss,” Roberts said.
