How Amal Clooney perceived kisses between her husband and Julia Roberts

For eight years, George Clooney has been happily married to lawyer Amal Alamuddin (Clooney).
Pretty solid for an actor who has been celibate for so long. The couple looks perfect. But, like everyone else, they have disagreements and quarrels. Yes, although Amal understands that her husband is an actor, she does not always admire his stage life. He recently starred in the new romantic comedy 'Ticket to Heaven'. Julia Roberts and George Clooney reunited on the screen. And, of course, there were kisses in the movie, as befits a romcom. How this romance with Roberts was perceived by Clooney's wife, we will tell you further, informs Ukr.Media.
Julia Roberts and George Clooney kissed 80 times
In the romantic comedy, Julia and George played a former married couple. According to the plot, they go to Bali to prevent their common daughter from marrying a local boy. The heroes believe that the girl is making a mistake. The same as they themselves once did.
Yes, Roberts and Clooney had to kiss on the screen. It is interesting that romantic scenes were the most difficult for the actors. It took about 80 takes to film the couple's kiss!
George Clooney is rarely seen in romantic comedies. As he himself shared in an interview, he has not appeared in films of this genre since 1996. It seems that he was bribed precisely by the fact that his partner on the set will be Julia Roberts. The actors have already collaborated several times. And, according to Roberts, there is a special chemistry between them.
As soon as George read the script, he knew he had to agree. It was written ostensibly for Clooney and Roberts, because celebrities have noted that their relationship is really similar to that of ex-spouses.
"It kind of only made sense with George, just based on our chemistry. We have a friendship that people know about, and in real life we look like we really broke up once. So this movie is for us, Julia Roberts shares.
Amal Clooney's reaction
Of course, George's wife was aware that her husband agreed to participate in a rom-com. But Amal is a wise woman, she knows how to separate her husband's work from his personal life. True, sometimes George knows how to tickle the nerves of his beloved. Yes, he told Amal that he and Julia needed a lot of takes to film the romantic scene. Mrs Clooney was not happy.
"I told my wife it took 80 takes. She's like: "What the hell?!""- says George with a smile on his face.
However, Julia Roberts shed light on how these takes were filmed. The actress admitted that not all of them kissed, but rather laughed. “It took 79 takes in which we laugh, and then one take in which we kiss,” Roberts revealed all the cards.
Can't wait to look at the screen tandem of Julia and George. They have already played together in “Financial Monster”, “Ocean's Eleven”, “Confessions of a Dangerous Man”. I wonder what they will show us in a rom-com.
