Julia Roberts Says George Clooney Rom-Com Will Likely Be ‘Terrible’

  • Julia Roberts told Variety that the rom-com “Ticket to Paradise” is “probably going to be terrible.”
  • She stars in the upcoming movie with George Clooney.
  • “It’s probably going to be terrible because there’s too much potential for it to be great,” she said.

Julia Roberts says that her upcoming romantic comedy with George Clooney, “Ticket to Paradise,” is “probably going to be terrible.”

“Christ. I knew this would come up,” Roberts said of the movie during an interview with Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh at the Cannes film festival. “Watch, the real acting happens now. Ready?”

According to Setoodeh, she then put on a big smile. “George, isn’t he great!?”

The movie, which opens in theaters in October, marks Roberts’ first time starring opposite Clooney since the 2016 movie “Money Monster.” They also famously costarred in the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise.

“It is a romantic comedy,” Roberts went on. “He plays my ex-husband. 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.'” Roberts added. “I’m so glad my publicist is on a plane right now.”

In “Ticket to Paradise,” Roberts and Clooney play a divorced couple who have to reluctantly team up and travel to Bali to stop their daughter (played by Kaitlyn Dever) from getting married to a local.
