The movie follows the two stars as Melanie and Jack, busy single parents who are forced together by fate.

George recalled one scene they had together, which he had to film while drunk. He admitted he didn’t think he had work the next day, and went out and had a “few vodkas” with his longtime pal, Rande Gerber, the night before.

“I woke up… and I was like, ‘I feel OK!’ And I looked in the mirror and I was like, ‘Ah, I’m still drunk.’ And I got to the set and walked into the trailer and you looked at me and you go, ‘What,’ and I was like, ‘I didn’t know we were going to work today,’ and you go, ‘You’re still drunk,’” h e explained.

“I kept trying to spray whatever mouth spray I could because I smelled like a distillery,” he continued.

“And then you showed up one day with a broken face,” she replied.

“Yeah, I was playing basketball with the crew at lunch time and I took an elbow in the face from a guy, one of the crew members and broke my eye socket. My eye, it kept swelling and I was like, ‘I can still shoot.’ Remember, we actually shot scenes where we blocked half of my face with a kid?”

He also pointed out that the movie was not well received at first.

“Now people look at that film and they like it, but they were really tough on us at the time,” he said.

“My wife and her friends can’t believe that One Fine Day wasn’t a big hit. They love it. So don’t you think there should be a sequel to One Fine Day? An Older Fine Day, and the kids are all grown up now?”

“It could be called I’m Tired Today,” Michelle said.

He also revealed why he’s never starred in a major motion picture franchise.
