Why The My Best Friend’s Wedding Poster Hurt Dermot Mulroney’s Hollywood Career – Looper

1 minute, 21 seconds Read

In the years since “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” Dermot Mulroney and Julia Roberts have worked together a handful of times, including on the film adaptation of the Broadway play “August: Osage County” and briefly on the Amazon series “Homecoming” (where Mulroney briefly plays Roberts’ boyfriend). Still, in the years since, they’ve both addressed either a sequel to “My Best Friend’s Wedding” or another rom-com; in the NYT piece, Mulroney said, “I’d give anything to go around again with Julia. We’re trying, for sure. We’ll do whatever anybody can get up and going.” In November of 2018, he told The Talk (via People) that he’s been ready for a sequel for years: “I’ve been clear from the beginning, I’ve been clear from 1997 that I’m ready for a sequel. So, I’m on record.”

Roberts, for her part, speaks fondly of Mulroney and her experience on “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” largely because the two have remained close friends for nearly three decades. “We really got lucky coming together,” Roberts told E! Daily Pop in April of 2022 as she celebrated the film’s 25th anniversary. “None of us knew each other before we made the movie, and we just had a really great chemistry. It just worked. I mean, we all really liked each other. Dermot and I are still really great friends — we talk all the time, And I think that that is a testament to the beautiful time that we all had making this film together.” With all this considered, hopefully Roberts and Mulroney will find a way to work together again … and in the meantime, Mulroney is mentoring the next generation of great rom-com stars.
