George Clooney and Julia Roberts joke ‘it took 80 takes’ for them to film the one kiss scene in their upcoming film

George Clooney and Julia Roberts joked that ‘it took 80 takes’ for them to film the single kissing scene in their upcoming romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise. 

While promoting their latest film together, the longtime friends teased that their on-screen smooch took ‘like, six months’ to perfect. 

‘Yeah. I told my wife [Amal Clooney], ‘It took 80 takes,’ the actor told The New York Times. ‘She was like, ‘What the hell?’

Prompting Roberts, who is happily married to Daniel Moder, to explain: ‘It took 79 takes of us laughing and then the one take of us kissing.’ 

‘Well, we had to get it right,’ Clooney, who became fast pals with the Oscar-winning actress since portraying a couple in the 2001 film Ocean’s Eleven, interjected. 

The father-of-two also revealed their roles were ‘clearly written’ for them by Ol Parker, who originally wrote their characters’ names as Georgia and Julian.

‘I hadn’t really done a romantic comedy since One Fine Day — I haven’t succeeded like Julia has in that forum — but I read it and thought, ‘Well, if Jules is up for it, I think this could be fun,” confessed to the outlet. 

Meanwhile Roberts stated that the movie ‘somehow only made sense with’ her and Clooney due to their ‘chemistry.’ 

‘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,’ she quipped.

The film, helmed by the director of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, is a rom-com about two badly behaved people rediscovering love. 

This marks the fourth time the Hollywood stars, who play exes on a mission to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they did 25 years ago by marrying young, will reunite for a film.

In the film their characters’ daughter Lily (played by Kaitlyn Dever) meets the love of her life on a post-graduation jaunt to Bali, which is where her parents must travel to in order to change her mind. 

Four times: Previously, George and Julia have worked together, after Ocean's Eleven (2001), Ocean's Twelve (2004), and Money Monster (2016)

However, judging by the trailer it looks as though Julia and George’s trip to save their daughter ends up being a journey in healing their own problems with each other.

From fighting over being sat next to each other on the same plane, to ending up doing tequila shots and embarrassing their child by dancing – it seems as though there could be a reconciliation on the cards.
