Yesterday in London, the glamorous world premiere of “Ticket to Paradise” took place, which, along with the irresistible duo Roberts and Clooney, who lit up the red carpet and delighted hundreds of fans, was also attended by the director and screenwriter Al Parker (“Mamma Mia!”, ” Together Again”) and the film’s young stars Caitlin Deaver, Billie Lord and Lucas Bravo.
While promoting the film, Julia Roberts made a confession in an interview that her colleague Clooney saved her from loneliness.
She and Clooney have been friends for decades, working together on “Ocean’s Eleven” (2001), “Ocean’s Twelve” (2004) and “Money Monster” (2016), and now a divorcing couple on “Ticket to Heaven.”
The 54-year-old beauty said this week that Clooney helped her deal with loneliness when she was alone in Australia filming the romantic comedy.
“It was the longest I’ve been away from my family. I don’t think I’ve spent that much time alone since I was 25,” Roberts told The New York Times.
While Clooney’s family – his wife Amal and their twins – were on set, Roberts was alone.
Julia, who also has twins, has been married to Danny Moder, 53, for 20 years. And they have three children: Hazel and Phineas, who are 17, and Henry, 14.
“We started filming on Hamilton Island with all these wild birds around us and Julia was set up in the house right below Amal and me and the kids,” Clooney explained.
“I would go out early in the morning, we would greet each other and I would bring her a cup of coffee. For our children, she is Aunt Juju,” he also shared.
The Roberts family eventually made it to Australia, but had to fly to Sydney and were quarantined. They were alone for two weeks before she could see them, Clooney said.
