George Clooney is arguably one of Hollywood’s sexiest men, and Julia Roberts is an American sweetheart. Although they are very close to one another, their relationship never progressed to anything intimate. During a 2022 interview with Access Hollywood, the pair was asked why they never got romantic in the early years of their friendship before they were married to other people. The duo joked and laughed about never seeing each other in a romantic way, but Clooney went on to explain that it was simply never in the cards for the pair. Clooney added that his friendship with Roberts was too strong to progress into anything more. “Julia was always in a relationship, or I was in a relationship. And we were fast friends right away. So it was nothing, but it’s been nothing but fun for us. So, I don’t think that was ever really a thing.”
Even though Clooney and Roberts have played love interests on-screen, their real-life friendship can prevent them from tackling romantic scenes. The actor admitted to The New York Times that he and Roberts even have a hard time kissing each other. “I told my wife [Amal Clooney], ‘It took 80 takes.’ She was like, ‘What the hell?'” Clooney said. Roberts added, “It took 79 takes of us laughing and then the one take of us kissing.”
In addition to Clooney and Roberts’ friendship, their families are also close.
