Who else is better to find love for Connie Britton than her good friend Julia Roberts?! The American Horror Story star paid Busy Philipps a visit on her new talk show, Busy Tonight, on Tuesday, Jan. 9 and said that Julia, 51, has been trying hard to find her perfect match — but so far, it sadly hasn’t worked out.
“I’ve gotten to be friends with Julia Roberts,” Connie, also 51, gushed to Busy. “She tried to set me up with somebody… It hasn’t worked out yet, but at least mama tried, you know what I’m saying.”
Connie hasn’t lost all hope just yet. She insisted that Busy should try to set her up on a date, too, since Julia is still trying to find a match for her. “Give it a shot,” she joked to the host. “I mean, Julia Roberts did it.” Though she’s still looking for love, Connie will be open to any helpful gesture that Julia offers her because they’ve grown to become very good “dysfunctional” friends. “It’s not really a healthy friendship,” Connie joked again. “It’s more like I idolize her, and she’s nice to me.”
At the 2019 Golden Globes this past weekend, Connie hilariously remembered running into Julia and thinking that she was going to remember that moment forever because the actress touched her face and said, “I love you.”
“I was like, ‘I’m never washing my face again,'” she laughed on the talk show. I mean, who would?! “I get it very deeply,” Busy agreed about Connie and Julia’s funny relationship, before her guest jokingly added, “Everybody understands that. Don’t judge me!”
Connie previously opened up about her single lifestyle on the Lifetime series The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet and said that although she’s in “great shape to meet a man,” she hasn’t found the time to date. “I have no sex life right now,” she confessed on the show. “I keep thinking about how I could do it, how I could pull it off.” But with Connie’s amazing talent and gorgeous looks, we’re sure she’s going to find her soulmate one day!
