Steven Spielberg said he’d never work with Julia Roberts again after Hook

Steven Spielberg said he’d never work with Julia Roberts again after Hook

Steven Spielberg and Julia Roberts worked together for the 1991 film Hook, but there were rumors of disagreements on set

While Steven Spielberg and Julia Roberts are some of the biggest names in Hollywood, you probably won't see them working together on a film anytime soon.

The pair actually appeared alongside each other for the 1991 film Hook, a movie that is infamous for alleged conflict on set.

Hook, a sequel to J.M. Barrie's 1911 book Peter and Wendy, was directed by Spielberg.

The legendary Robin Williams played the lead role of Peter Banning, a middle-aged lawyer who had forgotten his childhood in Neverland until a certain individual turned up.

Roberts, meanwhile, was also a star of the show, playing Tinkerbell in the 90s flick.

The actor - who was recently spotted having a tête-à-tête with Travis Kelce - famously clashed with Spielberg during the filming of Hook, and it was later rumored that Roberts was referred to as 'Tinkerhell' on the set.

Roberts was asked about the speculation with Entertainment Weekly that same year, admitting she 'never heard' of the nickname.

However, she didn't deny she clashed with people on the set, adding: "But I'm a normal person. I mean, if I sit in my trailer for six hours doing nothing, I'm going to say, 'What the f**k is going on?’”

Spielberg has also addressed the apparent feud in an interview with 60 Minutes.

"It was not a great time for Julia and I to be working together," the famed director admitted.

Spielberg was then asked if he would ever work with Roberts ever again, to which he replied: "This is a 60 Minutes question, isn’t it?”

After that interview aired, Roberts spoke to Variety Fair, saying: "He took these hesitations as if he had to choose his words very carefully when asked about me.

"I watched it and thought, Is this the same man I had whipped-cream fights with on the set? Is this the same man who said that he couldn’t wait every day to get to our stage because it was more fun than the big stage?

"I guess sometimes it’s just too tempting to be in the majority."

Meanwhile, Julia's niece Emma Roberts, whose had a pretty stellar career in film and TV so far, recently claimed her family connections have lost her jobs.

“I’ve lost more jobs than I’ve gained from being in the business,” Emma told Flaunt.

"People have opinions and sometimes maybe they’re not good opinions of people in your family. I’ve never gotten a job because of it, I know I definitely have lost a couple of jobs because of it."

UNILAD has contacted Julia Roberts and Steven Spielberg's representatives for a comment.
