Julia Roberts Had Lucas Hedges Bond With Her Family Before Filming ‘Ben Is Back’

Julia Roberts happily poses alongside her co-star Lucas Hedges while attending their BUILD Series panel for Ben Is Back on Monday (December 3) in New York City.

The 51-year-old actress recently opened up about bonding with Lucas, 21, and her real family before they started filming Ben Is Back, which about a drug-addicted teen and his mother who is trying to help him.

“Just to be able to develop a relationship and have some life experience together with Lucas before we started shooting and he was at our house a lot,” Julia told Extra. “He was there for Thanksgiving, he came to soccer games, went to the beach with the kids, and did things so that we were part of each other’s lives before we started to pretend to be the most important people in each other’s lives.”

“Oh, anything! I mean, that is the universal connective tissue of mothers and mother figures in the world,” Julia added on being protective of her children. “There is nothing you would not do to help, save, support, hold your child close.”
