Julia Roberts and Ethan Hawke film Netflix movie on Kings Park beach


“Pretty Woman” may have never looked better than she has while filming her new movie on a Long Island beach this month.

Julia Roberts and her co-star Ethan Hawke took to Sunken Meadow State Park Beach to film scenes of their upcoming Netflix flick, “Leave the World Behind.” The two highly acclaimed actors — both wearing sunglasses — were seen strolling the beach, setting up a sun umbrella and lounging on a blanket and beach chair.

Photographers last week also captured Roberts, who earned an Oscar playing “Erin Brockovich” in 2001, chatting on her phone and reading a book while lying on her stomach on a beach blanket.

The pandemic drama film, primarily set at a Long Island vacation home, is an adaptation of author Rumaan Alam’s 2020 novel “Leave the World Behind.” Two-time Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali will also star in the film, as well as Kevin Bacon.

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company Higher Ground is producing the movie, according to a Deadline report.
