Real friends let you crash their TV interviews.
Julia Roberts rolled right into George Clooney’s virtual call for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night.
Wearing dark sunglasses the actress, 54, slowly rolled into view during Clooney and the star of his film “The Tender Bar” Daniel Ranieri’s chat with Kimmel.
Roberts did absolutely nothing while sitting next to Clooney, 60, who pretended she wasn’t even there.
“Oh my goodness. Wow! Holy moly,” the late night host let out upon seeing Roberts slide into view.
“George, I don’t know if you’re aware of this but the woman sitting next to you. There’s a woman sitting next to you. Right there,” Kimmel tried to point out as Clooney looked around dumbfounded.
“Maybe I hallucinated that. Wow. It sure looked like Julia Roberts though,” Kimmel added. Clooney shrugged as if she hadn’t been sitting right next to him a moment ago.
The interview with Clooney and Ranieri, who is only 10 years old, went on without further appearances from the “Pretty Woman” star.
It’s no secret that Clooney and Roberts have worked on several films together, most notably 2001’s “Ocean’s Eleven” and the two follow-up films, “Ocean’s Twelve” and “Ocean’s Thirteen.”
The longtime friends are currently filming their next film together in Australia, a rom-com called “Ticket to Paradise.” The film is scheduled to be released in 2022, as reported by The Wrap.
“Ticket to Paradise” will be the pair’s first project together since 2016’s “Money Monster.”
