Check out what Julia Roberts told us on the red carpet!
What were the most memorable moments of living with your cast on set?
Julia Roberts: Well, it was an election year, and so we would all get together to watch the debates and to watch all the coverage and so we were all incredibly vocal and it was an exciting time to part of politics with Meryl definitely leading the charge of that. It was exciting!
What was the funniest moment from set?
Julia Roberts: Maybe watching my friend Dermot eat 16 chickens during the dinner scene!
What do you admire about director John Wells?
Julia Roberts: Talk about trying to keep puppies in a box! I don't know how he always joyfully and happily and with a smile on his face kept us all moving in the same direction - it was quite a task!
What was it like working with Meryl Streep?
Julia Roberts: It was awesome, which is so boring to say. It was just great, they were all great! We had such a good time and really I think there was a lot of thought that went into putting us all together as a family and it made a lot of good sense.
Are you excited for awards season?
Julia Roberts: Sure!
What does being a mom mean to you?
Julia Roberts: The world! Just the world!
