Julia Roberts up for ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ sequel (Twitter)
She maybe the quintessential “Pretty Woman” for many but actor Julia Roberts, who completes 30 years in Hollywood, says if there is a character she wants to revisit, it would be Julianne Potter from “My Best Friend’s Wedding”.
The Oscar-winning actor has delivered many hits such as “Sleeping With the Enemy”, “The Pelican Brief”, “Notting Hill”, “Erin Brockovich” and “Runaway Bride” in her long career.
“A lot of people want to follow up with Vivian (Pretty Woman),” Roberts said in an interview to Entertainment Weekly.
The actor said she still wonders where the characters from “My Best Friend’s Wedding” are in life today.
“I guess I think maybe it’s just because we’re talking about Dermot (Mulroney). But Rupert (Everett, who played Roberts’ gay BFF) was so funny in My Best Friend’s Wedding. I guess Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) and Michael (Mulroney) are married and they probably have kids. And then there’s me and Rupert,” she said.
Mulroney, who reunites with Roberts for Amazon series “Homecoming”, says he is also up for a sequel.
“I’ll tell you that movie has wormed its way further and further under my skin, and I see more and more layers of how it holds meaning and sustains as a piece, and obviously it’s always been irresistible. I think there’s only about four people on Earth that could make a movie like that, and they include Rupert, Cameron, Julia, and me. So, let’s have at it.”
