It’s often agreed that communication is the key to a happy and lasting relationship, but Julia Roberts has a different theory – and we’re here for it! The Ticket to Paradise actress shared her secrets in an interview with E! News, promoting her new film with co-star George Clooney.
“I always say that same thing and I’m sticking with it – even though I’m repeating myself. It’s making out. Lots of making out,” said Julia when E! News journalist Francesca Amiker asked what her ‘ticket to paradise’ is for a successful marriage. Her co-star didn’t hesitate to agree.
Clooney jokingly said he makes out with Danny (her husband), too – to which Julia responded, “It keeps you guys together.” Clooney added, “It does keep us close,” before agreeing that her secret is a ‘good one, I will say that.’ It’s a secret the actress has stuck by for over two decades.
During the interview, Amiker commended Roberts and Clooney for staying happily married all these years – albeit with separate partners. Roberts has been married to Daniel Moder for 20 years (together 22 years), while Clooney has been married to Amal Alamuddin for eight years.
Roberts gave birth to twins in 2004 – a son and a daughter – and another son in 2007. As for Clooney and Alamuddin, they gave birth to twins of their own in 2017 – a son and a daughter. Both families are currently living out their happily ever after and we couldn’t be more jealous.
Still, Clooney knows that his marriage advice only goes so far. “I don’t know, I don’t have any secrets and, because I started so late, I’m not allowed to give advice to anyone. I have to just kind of look at it as I’m the luckiest human being on Earth and just appreciate that,” he clarified.
Amiker then asked the co-stars, “If you could go one place and that’s your ticket to paradise, where is that place?” The two “have the same truthful, beautiful, but corny answer – which is where our families are. That’s our paradise,” said Roberts. Again, Clooney was quick to agree.
