It seems they have put the “problem” behind them.
After nearly three decades, actor Nick Nolte is addressing the alleged behind-the-scenes feud he had with Julia Roberts while filming the ’90s movie ‘I Love Trouble’.
“It was absurd what we went through,” Nolte, 81, admitted to Insider while promoting his new drama “Rittenhouse Square.”
In a 1993 interview with The New York Times prior to the release of “I Love Trouble”, Roberts accused Nolte of exhibiting off-putting behavior during production.
“From the moment I met him, we kind of gave each other a hard time, and naturally we get on each other’s nerves,” Roberts said when asked about her co-star’s reputation. to behave rudely on set. While he can be “completely charming and very sweet,” she said, “he’s also completely disgusting.”
The ‘Pretty Woman’ star added, “He’s going to hate me for saying that, but it seems [to] go out of his way to push people away. It’s a kick.
Nolte reportedly responded in an interview with the Los Angeles Times at the time, “It’s not right to call someone ‘disgusting.’ But he’s not a nice person. Everybody knows that.”
It was a lot of drama for a critical romantic comedy about rival Chicago reporters who join forces to investigate corruption.
It looks like Nolte no longer harbors ill will towards his former co-star. When asked if he had “buried the hatchet,” the Nebraska native replied, “No, I didn’t. Although he is buried.
He also took some of the blame for the alleged on-set feud. “It was partly my fault and partly his,” admitted Nolte. “Julia got married at the start of this movie, and it was one of those things where I got it all wrong.”
He was referring to Roberts’ high-profile 1993 marriage to Lyle Lovett, which ended in divorce less than two years later.
The ‘Runaway Bride’ star is married to Danny Moder, a cameraman she met on the set of ‘The Mexican’ in 2000, and with whom she shares three children: twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, who will turn 18 this this month; and Henry, 15.
Roberts recently claimed that her secret to maintaining a successful marriage is to smooch heartily. “I always say the same thing and I stick to it,” the Oscar-winning actress told E! News in October. “It’s kissing. Lots of hugs.
