Los Angeles, May 5 (IANS) Jodie Foster, who is currently prepping for the release of her next directorial venture “Money Monster” starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney, thought Roberts would turn down the film.
Once Clooney was in, Foster was apprehensive of even approaching Roberts, reports variety.com.
Speaking candidly about casting Roberts for the film, Foster revealed: “Once someone said the name ‘Julia Roberts’, it was too perfect”.
“Nobody thought she would say yes, but we figured we would ask and get a quick no before moving on. But she expressed an interest, and I’m so glad, because she’s amazing,” she added.
“Money Monster” is set to release on May 15 in India by Sony Pictures.
