Julianna Margulies and George Clooney played one of the most loved couples on TV on ER (as nurse Carol Hathaway and Dr. Doug Ross.) Now, it looks like the actress is looking back at those years with the same fondness the fans do.
The star revealed that it was Clooney who taught her to respect everybody on set.
Margulies was in attendance at the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award Gala that honored Clooney earlier in the week, and while there, she shared with ET a story from the set of the medical drama.
She recalled Clooney shutting down a diva guests star.
‘I remember that it was a guest star who was … they were upset, and they were keeping all of us waiting while in their trailer. And we were on set waiting and when they came on I was just watching, and George said, ‘You know, you keep all of us waiting. The crew actually does not get to go home to see their families. So that is what that little tantrum was.’ And I was like, ‘Nice!’ never happened again.’
The actress went on to praise her fellow actor, even more, talking about how ‘lucky’ she was to work with him.
‘We loved working together. We were good together. We could finish each other’s sentences. It was easy. His body of work really speaks for itself. He knows so much about the business and yet has never, ever gotten jaded by it. He’s truly noble. He treats every single person alike on the set it, does not matter their job title… Yeah, he taught me everything,’ she gushed.
