While promoting their latest film together, the longtime pals said their on-screen smooch took “about six months” to perfect.
‘Yeah. I told my wife [Amal Clooney], “It took 80 takes,” the actor told The New York Times. ‘She was like, ‘What is this?’
Prompt Roberts, who is happily married to Daniel Moder, to explain, “It took us 79 takes of laughing and then one take of kissing.”
“Well, we had to get it right,” said Clooney, who has become fast friends with the Oscar-winning actress since portraying a couple in the 2001 film Ocean’s Eleven.

The father-of-two also revealed that their roles were “clearly written” for them by Ol Parker, who originally wrote their characters’ names as Georgia and Julian.
‘I hadn’t really done a rom-com since One Fine Day – I haven’t succeeded like Julia did on this forum – but I read it and thought, ‘Well, if Jules is in, I think it could be fun,” confessed to the outlet.
Meanwhile, Roberts said the movie “only made sense” with her and Clooney because of their “chemistry.”
“We have a friendship that people are aware of and we are going there as a divorced couple. Probably half of America thinks we’re divorced so we’ve got this to ourselves,’ she joked.
They said it again: While promoting their latest movie together, the longtime pals teased that their on-screen smooch took “about six months” to perfect. ‘Yeah. I told my wife [ Amal Clooney ], “It took 80 takes,” the actor told The New York Times. ‘She was like, ‘What is this?’
The film, directed by the director of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, is a romantic comedy about two misbehaved people who rediscover love.
Clooney and Roberts also do a cringe-worthy dance.
The actor insisted the scene shouldn’t be choreographed as it would work better if the stars could use their own embarrassing dance moves.
He added: “Everyone had plans for how we should dance and then we were like, ‘Well, actually, we have some really bad dance moves in real life.
“Julia and I have done all these moves before, that’s the sickest part.”
Julia added: “People always want to choreograph it, but you can’t put steps in it. Just open the box and let the magic fly.
George also admitted the couple’s young co-stars Kaitlyn Dever and Maxime Bouttier were “actually horrified” by the couple’s dance moves, with Julia adding: “It was hysterical, they were speechless.”
