Nick Nolte Breaks the Silence on Julia Roberts’ Beef: ‘It Was Ridiculous’

They seem to have put the “problems” behind them.

Nearly three decades later, actor Nick Nolte addresses alleged beef backstage with Julia Roberts while filming the ’90s movie I Love Trouble.

“What we went through was absurd,” Nolte, 81, admitted to Insider while promoting his new drama “Rittenhouse Square.”

In a 1993 interview with The New York Times prior to the release of “I Love Trouble,” Roberts accused Nolte of showing inappropriate behavior during production.

“From the moment I met him, we’ve kind of been having a tough time with each other, and of course we’re touching each other,” Roberts said when asked about her star’s reputation for behaving rudely on set. She said that while he can be “so charming and cute,” he’s “also disgusting.”

Just like the characters of the rival reporters in

Just like the characters of rival reporters in “I Love Trouble,” Nolte and Roberts seem to have put their differences aside.


The “Pretty Woman” star added, “He’ll hate me for saying this, but it looks like [to] He goes out of his way to fend off people. It’s a kick.”

Nolte reportedly replied in an interview with the Los Angeles Times at the time, “It’s not a good idea to call someone ‘disgusting.’ But she’s not a nice person. Everyone knows this.”

Describing his feud with Roberts on the set of I Love Trouble, Nolte, 81, said, “It was just ridiculous what we’ve been through.”

There was plenty of drama for a critically acclaimed romantic comedy about rival Chicago reporters joining forces to investigate corruption.

It seems that Nolte has no ill intentions towards his former star. When asked if he had “buried the hatchet,” the Nebraska native said, “No, I didn’t. Though it’s buried.”

He also took part of the blame for the supposed disagreement. “It was partly my fault and partly my fault,” Nolte admitted. “I got married to Julia at the beginning of this movie, and it was one of those things I got wrong with her.”

He was referring to Roberts’ highly publicized 1993 marriage to Lyle Lovett, which ended in divorce less than two years later.
