Julia Roberts gushed about Amal Clooney in a new interview. The Oscar winning actress is a longtime friend of the human rights lawyer’s husband George Clooney. The friends sat down for a chat with ET to promote their new film “Money Monster” directed by Jodie Foster.
The duo’s new film will be premiering at the 69th Cannes Film Festival on May 13. The 48-year-old actress talked about how Amal has been able to influence George and change him since the time they got married. “Our lives have expanded, though in a beautiful way. Only when we’re at their house I see the influence,” said the “Ocean’s Twelve” actress.
The Oscar winner acknowledged that marriage specifically has changed the dapper 55-year-old actor. The mother-of-two added that when she and her cameraman husband Danny Moder spend time with the Clooneys, the influence is visible. Roberts said that it is a beautiful way that all the wives have a very loving influence over their husbands.
The “Monuments Men” could not agree more with his friend. He joked that he had to concur otherwise he would get into trouble. The longtime friends also shared their plans for a fun double date at Cannes. George and Roberts attended the screening of their film “Money Monster” at the Cannes Film Festival Thursday.
Roberts told how it was working with George after a span of 12 years, their last film together being “Ocean’s Twelve” in 2004. Both the friends are known in the industry for being pranksters on-set. Clooney said that it would not be right if they would not spread the happiness to everyone around and make people smile.
The actress said that she first fell for Clooney when he appeared in the “Sisters,” an NBC drama as Detective James Falconer. She told George that he was very handsome at that time. Roberts added that she took notice of her friend and co-star when she watched him the second time as Sela Ward’s boyfriend.
Meanwhile, the actor gushed about his beautiful wife in an interview with Esquire in April. He told he has never been happier in a relationship and was glad that at 52, he found the “love” of his life.
