Julianna Margulies admits she and George Clooney had a real-life 'crush' during 'ER'


Julianna Margulies recently shared that she andERcostar George Clooney had a bit of a crush on each other back in the day — 和 that’s what fed their on-screen chemistry.
Margulies, who played nurse Carol Hathaway for six seasons on the medical drama, 告诉 she was low on the call sheet and was initially supposed to die early on in the series.
    I was just a guest star. I had to drive my cranky little rental car to Crenshaw at this abandoned hospital,” she told the publication.
      But then she met Clooney in the makeup trailer.
        And he could not have been kinder or sweeter,” 她记得.
        Margulies said their immediate chemistry happened because they genuinely liked each other.
          That can’t happen if you don’t have a crush on each other,” 她说. “And with George and me, it was so organic. I was just supposed to be a guest star, 数字 39 on the call sheet. But he treated everyone the same.
          Clooney quickly became her mentor, 她补充说.
          I followed and watched how he conducted himself on the set. When you create an environment that people feel safe in, then you do your best work. And George taught me that,” Margulies said. “I felt so safe with him. 我的意思是, I never thought, '好, why would I be in the bathtub and he’s coming in?’ 我像, ‘Okay, I’ll be in the bathtub. 是啊, great.'
            Margulies and Clooney will join their other former castmates on Thursday for a liveERcast virtual reunion forStars in the House.
            I think I’m just as excited as the fans are to see them all,” Margulies said of the reunion.
