Julia Roberts; George Clooney


Julia Roberts kept it lighthearted while talking about her upcoming film with longtime collaborator George Clooney.

While in conversation with Variety at the Cannes Film Festival in France, the actress, 54, was asked about the forthcoming Ticket to Paradise, in theaters this October, in which she and Clooney, 61, play a formerly married couple.

“Christ. I knew this would come up. Watch, the real acting happens now. Ready?” Roberts told the outlet, before, as Variety noted, she put on a “big smile” and added: “George, isn’t he great!?”

Noting that the project is “a romantic comedy” where Clooney plays her ex-husband, Roberts then told the publication, “I think it’s so funny and George is so funny and George and I together, it’s probably going to be terrible because there’s too much potential for it to be great, it’ll just implode on it itself.”

“I think that should be the commercial for the movie: ‘It’s probably going to be terrible,’ ” continued Roberts, before playfully teasing, “I’m so glad my publicist is on a plane right now.”

Ticket to Paradise stars Roberts and Clooney as exes that work together and travel to Bali to stop their daughter — played by Kaitlyn Dever — from getting married.

The film additionally stars Billie Lourd, as well as Lucas Bravo. The project is directed by Ol Parker, who also serves as a writer.

The film marks the fifth collaboration between Roberts and Clooney. The duo previously worked together on the films Confessions of a Dangerous MindOcean’s TwelveOcean’s Eleven and Money Monster.
