Julia Roberts And George Clooney Talk About Ticket To Paradise Kissing Scene

Clooney, 61, and Roberts, 54, sat down with Hoda Kotb on Today to promote their upcoming movie Ticket to Paradise. The two celebrities have been friends for over two decades.

The host asked them if it was awkward filming some scenes, including their kissing scene.

"It is when my wife and kids come by to visit," Clooney joked.

"I mean it was the first day they came to visit," Roberts added. "It's like, 'Papa, oh, Auntie Juju.' It's like – 'Get 'em out, get 'em out!'"

Clooney said it was "really bad" —not the kiss but probably the timing. "'What are you doing, Papa? What is that?'" he jokingly added.

The Ocean's Eleven actor clarified that his kids were not around when they filed the kissing scenes. Kotb asked if they laughed during the kiss, and both shared their reactions.

"It's kinda ridiculous," Roberts said. "It is like kissing your best friend."

"Well, thanks for that," Clooney replied. "You know I was a two-time 'Sexiest Man Alive?'"

"Then you go, 'Wait, my best friend is George Clooney," Roberts added.
