Julia Roberts is one of the most enchanting and alluring actresses in Hollywood. In her storied career, the actress has played a wide range of characters and has established herself as one of the highest-paid stars in showbiz.

Roberts has built a stellar reputation in the industry with her charming and graceful personality, and a filmography that is vast and varied. The Normal Heart movie actress has starred in dozens of record-smashing and facilitating projects that have gone on to achieve iconic status in American cinema. 

The Georgia native actress has worked with enough A-list talents in the industry, including actor George Clooney.

She recently starred opposite Clooney in the 2022 romantic comedy film Ticket to Paradise. In the flick, they play the role of a divorced couple. However, the film director Ol Parker shared that the actress struggled while filming a scene where she had to be mean to her co-star.

Julia Roberts Refused To Be Mean To Co-Star George Clooney

Julia Roberts is one of the most dazzling actresses in Hollywood. She has an incredible knack for acting and always gives her hundred percent to the project she is involved with.

In 2022, Roberts surprised the audience with her brilliant performance in the romantic comedy film Ticket to Paradise, in which she starred next to actor George Clooney. In the film, they play a divorced couple who agree to travel together to Bali to stop their daughter from marrying. 

In an intriguing anecdote, the film director Ol Parker once shared that there was a particular scene in the movie where Clooney and the Gaslit movie star were supposed to argue, but the actress struggled to act mean to her co-star.

"The only note I had to give Julia in the whole movie was the scene where they actually argue for real after the marketplace. They have an argument about how they brought up Lily. Julia was just going easy on George," Parker explains.

"I was like, 'Julia, what's up? What's happening here? George went for it on his close-up, and he's still going for it on hers, and she's not. I was like, 'What is going on here?'"

He further added,

"She went, 'I just don't like shouting. I don't like being mean to George. And I was like, 'You got to let him have it.' She's like, 'Okay.' And then the next take is the one in the movie, and it's sensational.


George Clooney has done a couple of films with Julia Roberts before their 2022 rom-com Ticket to Paradise. The movie received an overwhelming response from fans and critics alike and grossed $172 million at the global box office.

In a candid interview, the Notting Hill movie star and her co-star George Clooney shared their experience working with each other in Ticket to Paradise. George Clooney gushed about working with his co-star, saying,

"I've always been drawn to Julia, for a lot of reasons. One of them is that she has forever been a proper movie star, but she's totally willing to not take herself seriously, and that makes such a difference in life because we've spent a lot of time together. She's also a really gifted actress."

Roberts added,

"There's some alchemy about us that you can sense from a distance, I think."

The 53-year-old star has worked with George Clooney in six iconic films: Money Monster, Ticket to Paradise, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Eleven.

Ticket to Paradise is available for streaming on Netflix.
