It’s been 20 years since the iconic romantic comedy “The Wedding Planner” hit the big screen.
“It feels like just yesterday that we were in the middle of that field, do you remember, doing that scene?” Lopez recalled while laughing. “Where you were about to kiss me and you said to me — I don’t know if you remember this — ‘Miss Lopez, I’m going to kiss you now.’”
“And I was like, ‘OK, let’s do it! Let’s get it!’”
Lopez told her fans that she and McConaughey had great natural chemistry.
"We were somewhat at the beginning of our careers at that time ... It was a magical time," the pop star said. "I'm such a romantic, too, that working on those types of movies have a real feel for me."
The film’s director, Adam Shankman, explained how Lopez was the perfect fit for the role.
“She was ambitious, and understood everything that was girly and feminine about the movie, but at the same time recognized the engine inside of it. There were many factors about the real-life Jennifer that really spoke to what the character was.”
McConaughey agreed with Lopez who claimed romantic comedies “do something for your soul.”
“We need a little lightness,” McConaughey echoed. “We don’t get as much of it anymore but that lightness … 'Wedding Planner' is buoyant for a reason. You’re dancing across the clouds and it feels a little like Saturday evening every day on set. It feels a little like Saturday when you’re watching those movies, for the entire movie, and you don’t want to feel like Monday.”
“Even though we’ve been through a tough year, it’s like, miracles still happen,” Lopez added. “Love prevails. Things can go right.”
