Julia Roberts prepares to board a flight as filming wraps for Ticket to Paradise on the Gold Coast


Julia Roberts prepared to board a private jet out of Australia on Saturday as filming for her new romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise wrapped up on the Gold Coast. 

The Hollywood actress, 54, attempted to go incognito as she emerged out of a car with her entourage, dressed in a black hooded sweater and dark sunglasses.

Ticket to Paradise, in which Roberts stars alongside George Clooney, sees a divorced couple race to Bali to stop their daughter, played by Kaitlyn Dever, from getting married and ‘making the same mistake they once made’.

The movie also stars Billie Lourd as Dever’s best friend, who travels with her to Bali, where she decides to marry a local. 

The blockbuster is due for release in October this year, with high expectations for its success because of the reuniting of Roberts and Clooney after box-office successes Ocean’s Eleven and Ocean’s Twelve in the early 2000s. 

In Oceans Eleven, Clooney plays Danny Ocean, the charismatic thief that’s planning his next mission, despite having only left a New Jersey penitentiary in under 24 hours.

Roberts plays Danny’s wife Tess Ocean in both Oceans Eleven and Oceans Twelve. 

She files for divorce from Danny during his four years in prison. Tess eventually returns to Danny after a brief romance with Terry Benedict. 

They also starred together in the 2016 crime thriller, Money Monster, directed by fellow actor, Jodie Foster.

It was revealed back in March last year that Roberts and Clooney were heading to Australia to film the hotly anticipated project.  

Clooney relocated to Australia in October with his human rights lawyer wife Amal and the couple’s four-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella, completing a mandatory 14-day quarantine period at a sprawling NSW Southern Highlands estate.

Roberts also arrived in October, spending her quarantine period at a $56.9million mansion in Sydney’s Vaucluse.

The property was the former rental home of Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch, the son and daughter-in-law of Australian-born media mogul Rupert Murdoch. 

The home was patrolled by around-the-clock armed guards, while multiple chefs, waiters and housekeepers stayed with Roberts as part of her travel bubble.
