Kristin Chenoweth developed a 'real sisterhood' with Emma Roberts on their romantic comedy Holidate

She plays a major supporting role in the new Netflix romantic comedy Holidate.

And Kristin Chenoweth opened up earlier this month about her newly minted friendship with the movie’s star, Emma Roberts, 29, while speaking with Us Weekly.

The 52-year-old actress and singer went so far as to say they developed a ‘real sisterhood’ while working on the picture.

Part of what helped ease the relationship along was Emma’s diminutive height, as she’s 5ft2in tall and Kristin is just shy of 5 feet.

‘She’s not that much taller than me, so it gave my neck a break. I loved it,’ she joked.

‘Secondly, I loved [that] there was a real sisterhood we developed on that movie with Emma, myself and Jessica Capshaw,’ the Wicked star said amidst her promotional work for Kelloggs’ Do it Yuleself campaign.

‘Cap’s probably one of my best friends,’ she said of the daughter of Kate Capshaw and her first husband Robert Capshaw.

Kristin also had kind words for her other costars Francis Fisher and Cynthy Wu.

‘We just had a really tight-knit, female-powered group, and I’m really proud of that,’ she added.

Emma, who announced at the end of August that she was pregnant with her first child, stars in Holidate as Sloane, a newly single young woman who chafes at her mother’s attempt to set her up with new men at each family gathering.

To get around the issue, she makes a pact with an Australian golfer named Jackson (Luke Bracey), so that each will be the other’s platonic date at family festivities.

The film has received mixed reviews from critics and currently has a 45 percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Emma celebrated the news of her pregnancy with her boyfriend Garrett Hedlund, 36.

The niece of Julia Roberts was first linked to the actor back in March 2019.

Last week, Kristin spoke to People about what her experience has been like quarantining with her beau Josh Bryant, 38, amid the pandemic.

‘We managed to stay creative and still have a good time,’ she said.

The lovebirds, who have been together since August 2018, have been staying sane by filming TikTok videos together, along with a parody Tiger King musical titled Little Pieces. 

The Pushing Daisies actress credited Bryant with showing her how to use TikTok. 

‘My boyfriend is 14 years younger than me. Thus, I’m good at TikTok,’ she said with a laugh.

‘I didn’t know what TikTok was, I didn’t necessarily want to do TikTok. Now I love TikTok with his help.’
