”We were in a bubble, and it’s the longest I’ve ever been away from my family. I don’t think I’ve spent that much time by myself since I was 25,’

As per reports, filming took place for nearly 3 months between November 2021 and February 2022.

Clooney added:

‘We started in Hamilton Island with all these wild birds, and Julia had the house down just below Amal and me and the kids,’

‘And then we’d bring her down a cup of coffee. She was Aunt Juju to my kids.’

George revealed that Julia’s family were finally able to make it to Australia but had to be in Sydney and quarantined there for 2 weeks before they could see her.

‘It took 79 takes of us laughing and then the one take of us kissing.’

The father of two also said that he had not done a romantic comedy since One Fine Day which was released in 1996.

Julia added that the movie somehow made  sense due to their chemistry and said:

”We have a friendship that people are aware of, and we’re going into it as this divorced couple. Half of America probably thinks we are divorced, so we have that going for us,’

The film is directed by OI Parker and it is about two poorly behaved people who rediscover love.
