The actors have been friends for decades, which, according to the two stars, made filming a kiss for their upcoming romantic comedy quite funny.
“It took 79 takes of us laughing and then the one take of us kissing,” Roberts told the publication.
“We have a friendship that people are aware of, and we’re going into it as this divorced couple. Half of America probably thinks we are divorced, so we have that going for us,” Roberts quipped.
She and Clooney have appeared on screen together before in “Ocean’s Eleven,” “Ocean’s Twelve,” “Money Monster” and “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.”
“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,'” she laughed.
