Lucas talks about working with Julia on their new film Ben is Back.
You’ve worked with two of the best actresses in the industry today — Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. What do they have in common?
They’re both technically great actors. The thing that makes them special is that they have enormous capacity to care about other people. I can’t spend an hour with either of them without getting a sense of what’s going on with their families. I really think they’ve rooted their lives in something really healthy and special. They don’t live to be actresses, they live to be people. The key ingredient, I think, is their capacity for love and the ability to create a family.
