In January 2021, Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey reunited virtually to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of The Wedding Planner. The ever so popular romantic comedy hit theaters in 2001, raking in a whopping $94 million worldwide, per Glamour. The movie served as a major launching pad for Lopez’s acting career (although it came after her turn as Selena Quintanilla in Selena) and made all the ladies fall in love with McConaughey.
Appearing on Instagram Live to celebrate the milestone, Lopez gushed about their “chemistry” on set, telling McConaughey (via Glamour), “I so enjoyed working with you. We had such a nice rapport and chemistry. We were somewhat at the beginning of our careers at that time. It was exciting to be working on any movie. I still feel that way.” The “Jenny from the Block” singer continued, “It was a magical time. I’m such a romantic too that working on those types of movies have a real feel for me.”
McConaughey took the opportunity to highlight JLo’s work ethic, telling the singer “You prepare so well for everything you do. I love your intentionality. I love how deliberate you are.” As it turns out, it was the Ghost of Girlfriends Past actor who was super intentional on set.
