The mother is played by Karimah Westbrook, a native of Chicago’s western suburbs who has been based in Los Angeles for the past 17 years. Pursuing a career in acting is not without an awkward moment or two, she said.

“I like to give either thank you cards or gifts after I work on a project, especially to the director. And every day on set George would show up to work wearing a Casamigos tequila hat or shirt. Like, everyday. So I thought, ‘I’m going to find that tequila because he seems to really like it!’ I go buy a bottle, and I’m so happy about this gift! I got on set and I see George and I give it to him and he smiles and then I walk over to the makeup artist and she’s like, ‘That’s his company!’

“A few minutes later George came back over and he had signed the bottle and he said, ‘I think you should keep this!’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, I didn’t know it was your company! I just thought you loved that brand of tequila!’ ” (Clooney and his partners have since sold the company.)
