“I think it’s so funny and George is so funny and George and I together it’s probably going to be awful because there’s too much potential for it to be great it’s just going to implode on its own,” Julia quipped to Variety in Cannes this year.
“I think that should be the commercial for the movie: ‘It’s probably going to be awful,'” she vamped. “I’m so glad my publicist is on the plane right now.”
Julia and George star alongside Booksmart actress Kaitlyn Dever, who plays her daughter, and showbiz heir Billie Lourd, whose mother was Carrie Fisher.
Although critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave it a disapproving 56%, the film garnered an 89% viewership rating on the same site.
