Julia Roberts goes shopping on the Gold Coast after filming her new movie

She has always been known for her megawatt smile, and Julia Roberts, 54, was not hard to miss as she enjoyed a shopping trip on the Gold Coast on Friday.

The American actress beamed as she perused some clothing stores in Burleigh Heads, after flying into Coolangatta airport with her Ticket to Paradise co-star George Clooney, his wife Amal and their two children from The Whitsundays. 

Julia and George, 60, started filming Ticket to Paradise last month on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, and moved to The Whitsundays shortly afterwards.

The Pretty Woman star looked stunning, completely makeup free and dressed down in a black boiler suit. 

She teamed the all-in-one with black leather sandals, a colourful crochet beach bag and a pair of designer sunglasses. 

Julia wore her golden locks back in a messy no-fuss bun and had not a scrap of makeup on her incredibly youthful visage.

The Ocean’s Eleven beauty also sported a golden tan after weeks of filming in The Whitsundays. 

At one point, she enjoyed some banter with her bodyguard as she tried on a bucket hat she had purchased at one of the stores. 

He playfully pulled the hat over her face as they joked around on the street. 

It was revealed back in March that George and Julia were heading to Australia to film their hotly anticipated project.

The film received a $6.4million grant from the federal government’s Location Incentive Program.

George and Julia will play a divorced couple who travel to Bali in a desperate bid to stop their daughter, played by Kaitlyn Dever, from getting married.

The movie also stars Billie Lourd as Dever’s best friend, who travels with her to Bali, where she decides to marry a local.

The two-month project will be filmed entirely in Queensland, with the picturesque Whitsundays doubling for Bali.

The production is expected to generate $47million for the Australian economy and create more than 270 jobs.

Ticket to Paradise is written and directed by Ol Parker, who helmed The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Longtime friends George and Julia have starred in three films together – Oceans Eleven (2001), Oceans Twelve (2004) and Money Monster (2016).

George relocated to Australia last month with his human rights lawyer wife Amal and the couple’s five-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella.

Despite spending their mandatory 14-day quarantine period at a sprawling NSW Southern Highlands estate rather than the usual hotel, George still complained about the conditions.

‘You have to stay in one place for 14 days until you’re finally allowed to go out and breathe,’ he told WTF podcast host Marc Maron.

Meanwhile, Julia also jetted into Australia last month, spending her quarantine period at a $56.9million mansion in Sydney’s Vaucluse.

The property was the former rental home of Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch, the son and daughter-in-law of Australian-born media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

The home was patrolled by around-the-clock armed guards, while multiple chefs, waiters and housekeepers stayed with Julia as part of her travel bubble.

George and Julia are good friends in real-life, having first met on the set of Ocean’s Eleven back in 2001.

But Julia admitted she initially wasn’t a huge fan of George, because he was always pranking her, revealing their relationship only changed for the better while she was pregnant.

‘At George’s house, I remember walking down this path pregnant with Phinn and Hazel and turning the corner, and all the boys were sitting at the table having lunch,’ she told Allure in September 2015 of a lunch with her Ocean’s 11 co-stars. 

‘They were like, “Oh, come sit down.” I wasn’t allowed to walk the stairs. It was such a sweet shift in our relationships because originally, it was all pranks and teasing each other. 

‘And here I am pregnant, so it’s like pulling out my chair and just making sure I have enough water and, “Are you feeling OK? You look a little peaked.” “I’m fine.”‘ 

In an interview with People in April 2016, Julia said it was a ‘relief’ that she and George aren’t just ‘Hollywood friends’.  

‘I just said to him an hour ago, “Thank God we really do like each other, or we’d be in hell,”‘ she said at the time.
