Roberts went on to express that she and her longtime friend George requested that the actor’s son and daughter, Alexander and Ella, aged five, be removed from the set during the kissing scenes.

She recalled: ‘It was the first day they came to visit; it’s like “Papa! Aunt Juju!” It’s like Ah! Get them out!’

In September, they both joked that ‘it took 80 takes’ for them to film the single kiss scene in their upcoming romantic comedy.

While promoting their latest film together, the pals teased that their on-screen smooching took ‘like, six months’ to perfect.
