It’s nice to know that George Clooney needs a little recognition too. Life being mere mortals is a nightmare, so it’s comforting to know that the two-time Oscar winner and one-time Batman feels insecure about the way they perform. in a new interview with new York Times, he admitted that he has never been as “successful” as his co-star Julia Roberts in a full-fledged romantic comedy. Join the club, Clooney.
“He sent me the script, and it was clearly written for Julia and I,” Clooney said. “Actually, the characters’ names were originally Georgia and Julian. I haven’t really done any romantic comedies since A good day—I didn’t succeed in that forum like Julia—but I read it and thought, ‘Well, if Jules is up for this, I guess it could be fun.'”

To save Clooney from himself, A good day is a good film. Who wouldn’t want to see Michelle Pfeiffer and Clooney have a good day together? People would love to see Clooney spending time with his fake ex-wife, Julia Roberts. This will happen.
“It somehow only made sense with George based on our chemistry.” Roberts said. “We have a friendship that people know about, and we’re going into it as this divorced couple. Half of America probably thinks we’re divorced, so we have it going for us.”
“Plus, George and I felt a great sense of responsibility in wanting to make a comedy together, to give people a break from life after going through the toughest times in the world. It’s like when you’re walking on the sidewalk.” And it’s cold outside and you get to that nice patch of sun that touches your back and you go, ‘Oh yeah. That’s what I should have felt.’
Thanks for your service, Roberts and Clooney, for coming together as America’s favorite fake divorced couple.
Surprisingly, Clooney hasn’t made many rom-coms despite that bubbly energy with Roberts, the alchemy that helped give of the ocean Movies spark romance. separately A good dayClooney has only starred in Intolerable Crueltyarguably an anti-romantic comedy, and Michael ClaytonWhich is less of a rom-com and more of a good movie. Perhaps Clooney’s lack of success is due to what style.
“I remember early in my career, I had to do a kissing scene with this girl and the director says, ‘It’s not like that.’ And I was like, ‘Man, that’s my trick! That’s what I do in real life!'” No wonder she was wearing those rubber lips batman and robin,
Of course, Roberts is a master of form, and he breaks down the absence of style in the best way he can.
Roberts: I guess we didn’t appreciate the bountiful crop of romantic comedies at the time. You don’t see all the effort and puppet strings because it’s fun and sweet and people are laughing and kissing and being naughty. Also, I think it’s different at 54 years old reading those scripts. I can’t read a story like this My friend’s marriage Where I’m falling off a chair and all these things because——
Clooney: You’ll break a hip.
Roberts: I’ll break a hip! Oh, George. But it was nice to read something that was age-appropriate, where the jokes made sense, and I appreciated and understood what these people were going through. This is what people want to see, your association with some work. They want to see the heart space that you have – not just, ‘Oh, do something funny because we love that.’
