Julia Roberts and George Clooney opened up about their quarantine bubble while filming ‘Ticket to Paradise’ in Australia.

“We started on Hamilton Island with all these wild birds, and Julia had the house right below Amal and me and the kids,” Clooney told The New York Times.

“I would go out early in the morning and say ‘Caa-caa’, and Julia would come out and say ‘Caa-caa’. And then we would bring her a cup of coffee. She was Aunt Juju to my children.

Roberts noted that the filming time in Australia was the “longest” she had ever been away from her family.

“The Clooneys saved me from loneliness and despair,” Roberts added. “We were in a bubble, and this is the longest time I’ve been away from my family. I don’t think I’ve spent this much time alone since I was 25.”

The duo revealed a scene in “Ticket to Paradise” involving a single kiss that took “about six months” to film in a recent interview with The New York Times.

“Yeah. I said to my wife, ‘It took 80 takes,'” Clooney told the outlet. “She was like, ‘What is this?'”

“It took us 79 takes of laughing and then one take of kissing,” Roberts explained.

Clooney replied, “Well, we had to get it right.”

The film casts Roberts and Clooney as two long-divorced parents who come together to stop their daughter from impulsively marrying a man she just met.

“Ticket to Paradise” also marks Roberts’ first romantic comedy in 20 years.

The movie stars also talked about how long it took them to film a scene with just one kiss.

The ‘Pretty Woman’ actress recently opened up about why she hasn’t done a rom-com in years.

“People sometimes misinterpret the time that has passed without me doing a rom-com as if I didn’t want to do one,” Roberts told the outlet. “If I had read something I thought was ‘Notting Hill’ level of writing or crazy level of fun at my best friend’s wedding, I would. They didn’t exist before this movie that I just made and that Ol Parker wrote and directed.

“But even with that, I was like, ‘Well, disaster, because it only works if it’s George Clooney,'” she continued. “Lo and behold, George felt it only worked with me. Somehow we were both able to do it, and off we went.”
