George Clooney and Julia Roberts Discuss Why They Never Took Their Relationship to “a Different Level.”!
George Clooney and Julia Roberts have broken their silence regarding their long friendship and the reasons why they were never “truly a thing” as a dating couple.
The two Oscar winners spoke to Access Hollywood on Wednesday to promote their forthcoming film, “Ticket to Paradise,” and they discussed their relationship and their first impressions of one another.
Roberts termed Clooney “kind,” and Clooney claimed that Roberts “made me giggle.”
After that, host Kit Hoover peppered them with questions about their close relationship.
When asked what quality in the other they respect most, Clooney promptly raved about the “Pretty Woman” actor’s “compassion,” while Roberts lauded his “fortitude.”
Hoover then asked the pair a question that fans of their work together in films like “Ocean’s Eleven” (2001), “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” (2002), “Ocean’s Twelve” (2004), and “Money Monster” (2016) had been longing to know the answer to.
Was there ever a time when dating was strictly forbidden? Hover had a question.
What do you mean, “to not go out on dates?” Roberts said, “I don’t think we needed to mention that,” after asking the question.
Clooney, who has been married to human rights lawyer Amal Clooney since 2014, recently opened up about why the couple has never taken their relationship to a “different level,” explaining that there were always other people in their lives.
I always had a significant other, and Julia always did, too. Our friendship blossomed quickly. So it was really nothing, but we had a great time doing it.
The star of “Gravity” has spoken out to say that she doesn’t believe this has ever been a thing.
In 2002, Roberts married the director of photography Danny Moder. They have three children together: Hazel and Phinnaeus, twins who will soon turn 17, and Henry, who will soon turn 15.
Roberts, known as “Auntie Juju” to Clooney’s 5-year-old twins Alexander and Ella, quipped that the idea of having romantic feelings for her friend made her feel sick.
As a result of their humorous flirtation, the leading lady pretended to throw up. No need to have such a severe reaction!” Laughing, he shot back at her. The film “Ticket to Paradise,” about a separated couple who take their daughter to Indonesia to teach her not to repeat their mistakes, will premiere on October 21.
