Following the interview, Julia traded her sporty-chic beige co-ord for a navy blazer romper by Thom Browne. It’s a combination of a blazer-style top and knee-length shorts, complete with lapels and red, white, and blue striped lining.
Adding some style to the look, the Mystic Pizza star wore a long gold pendant necklace and a pair of gold drop earrings.

These $990 shoes are made of black pebbled grain leather and feature a lace-up closure, pointed toes, perforations, curved heels, and the American fashion designer’s signature grosgrain loop tab.
Wearing gold-framed Ray-Ban aviators, Roberts styled her natural red locks in voluminous waves and painted her lips nude.

Why George Clooney and Julia Roberts Never Dated?
While George Clooney and Julia Roberts share undeniable chemistry on-screen, the stars admitted that their decades of friendship never turned romantic.
In an interview with Access Hollywood on Wednesday, the two were asked if they “ever have a no-dating policy” given their years of friendship. Roberts replied, “I don’t think we needed to state it.”
Clooney explained, “Julia was always in a relationship, or I was in a relationship. And we were fast friends right away and so it was nothing, it’s been nothing but fun for us so, I don’t think that was ever really a thing.”
