Hosted by Edith Bowman, the Worldwide Press Conference, that took place Virtually, saw George Clooney and Julia Roberts together since they starred together in 2016's Money Monster. Here they talk with the rest of the cast about their chemistry, working with their young cast and working with Ol Parker who reveals why it was them he had to have in the film...
Edith Bowman - Am I right in thinking that you wrote this, with Julia and George, in mind?
Ol Parker - You're entirely right, and it was only them. We wouldn't be sitting here, we wouldn't have made a film. If it wasn't, then we'd still be writing letters going, You don't understand. This needs to be you. So yeah, and it was conceived for them and written for them. And I begged them to do it and they took mercy on me.
George Clooney - In fairness, he had some, some compromising photographs. (laughs)
Edith Bowman - Thankfully, you said yes, it is wonderful to see you guys on screen together. Julia, what was it you connected to the script? What kind of jumped out at you both for this part in this film?
Julia Roberts - Just the chance to be snarky with George, really jumped out at me.Really jumped out at me just to see him just so pathetically in love with me. And I'm clearly moved on.
George Clooney - It's obviously about being about a man in love, had to deal with a horrible woman.
Edith Bowman - David. I mean, what was it about the character you were looking forward to playing?
George Clooney - What was so important to me was to be able to work with the the queen of sitcoms, the queen of romantic comedies. But she couldn't take the job, so I worked with Julia. Oh, that's right. That's where I went. I went there.
Julia Roberts - And you gave just enough time that I thought I was free and clear. It's been two days of this.
Edith Bowman - And we get to watch you on screen and it's glorious.
George Clooney - He was three inches taller when we started the film... (laughs)
Ol Parker - Any time you guys want to work over here waiting.
Edith Bowman - Well, is this chemistry? It's chemistry with all these different characters throughout the film. And that chemistry has got to start with your daughter, with Lily, with you, Kaitlyn, and it's beautiful because you have scenes, you know, with mom and dad. You also have seen with scene as well. Talk a little bit about Lilly in that character and working with these guys.
Kaitlyn Dever - I mean, it was just the best. It was immediately. So, you know, it's kind of interesting as an actor when you're thrown into, you know, having a relationship with someone on screen or meeting your best friend for the first time. And it's really special when it's so easy and immediate and knowing you guys and getting to know you is just so special.
Edith Bowman - Then you got a mate with you as well. You know, we've got to have that kind of nice friendship already that's going to help and be lovely to get the chance to work together again.
Billie Lourd - Oh is the best. Just the best is the best. I loved it.
Kaitlyn Dever - All the time.
Billie Lourd - Adventures all the time. Great Barrier Reef, Stinger suits, I've never looked better in my life than anything I see with just this little sideshow in my face showing. And I only do that. I don't know. Actually, I would. I should have worn that today, too. But I mean, I know I've been good. We all should have done a big stinger suit day.
