Julia Roberts On a Sequel To ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’

Roberts has also admitted who she wished Michael should have married in the film.

 One of the most beloved rom-coms of the 1990s, My Best Friend’s Wedding, might be returning for a sequel. What does Julia Roberts have to say about this, and what does she have to say about the ending of the film?

‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’: An Overview 

Directed by P.J. Hogan, My Best Friend’s Wedding is a romantic comedy released on June 20, 1997, starring Julia Roberts as Julianne Potter, Dermot Mulroney as Michael O’Neal, Cameron Diaz as Kimberly Wallace, and Rubert Everett as George Downes. Due to both the notable actors and the quality of the film, it was successful, with a box office of $299.3 million. The plot centralizes Julianne’s mission to stop the wedding between Kimberly and Michael after realizing she had been in love with Michael all along; Julianne and Michael had agreed to marry each other if they were still single by the time they turned 28.

Sequel Suspicions and Ending Thoughts 

After her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Roberts was asked which movie from her career she would be willing to work in a sequel for. 

“That’s a really good question, and I’ve never been asked it. I think, maybe, My Best Friend’s Wedding. Because there’s so many people in it, and to see what they’re doing and how Kimmy and Michael’s marriage is going and…”

While Roberts expressed that she had never been prompted that question, she still answered rather quickly. This reveals that My Best Friend’s Wedding has to be towards, if not the top of, her list of favorite movies that she has performed in. 

In fact, it was actually not the first time a hint had been given about a sequel. Back in a 2019 issue from Entertainment, she discussed how the entire cast had actually brought up the idea for a sequel. “It came up today,” Roberts said. 

Dermot Mulroney claimed, “It really did. I’ve been asked about it a lot, obviously, and I’ve always said yes. I think it’s a great idea, but I decided today I’m going to say no from now on.” His reasoning behind his “no” is that he suggested rereleasing the movie instead, guaranteeing a blockbuster status once again.

Following Roberts’ answer, she revealed her opinion on the ending for the film after another prompted question from a fan. 

Andy Cohen asks, “Who do you think Michael should have married in My Best Friend’s Wedding? Jules or Kimmy?”

“Well, I mean, of course, Jules, but he married Kimmy.” Clearly, Roberts always had an opinion on the right ending. 

Robert’s Return?

While it is unclear if there will actually be a sequel to My Best Friend’s Wedding, fans can now confirm that Roberts would be more than happy to entertain the idea. Fans now also know that Roberts preferred for her character, Julianne, to have the happy ending. 

Stay tuned to find out if the sequel will be confirmed. For now, My Best Friend’s Wedding can be watched on Netflix.
