Jennifer Lopez & Matthew McConaughey Reminisce About 'The Wedding Planner' During Zoom Reunion

Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey have virtually reunited to reminisce about The Wedding Planner for its 20th anniversary.

The two actors, who played Mary and Steve in the romantic comedy, shared compliments of each other over their Zoom reunion.

“You said, ‘Miss Lopez, I’m going to kiss you now.’ And I said, ‘OK, let’s do it. Let’s hit it,’” Jennifer recalled to him. “When you do these movies…we’ve been lucky enough to continue doing what we love, there’s certain moments that always stick out in your head.”

She added that she “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. It was a magical time. I’m such a romantic too that working on those types of movies have a real feel for me.”

“In a way, [The Wedding Planner] was the last of the rom-coms,” Matthew mused. “The rom-com doesn’t get made anymore…”

“We did Monster-In-Law after we did Wedding Planner,” Jennifer noted, reiterating his thoughts about the genre. “That was a lot of fun, that was that era. But you’re right. Now I’m about to do another one, I have one in the can, I’m about to do another one.”

“I wanna know there’s a happily ever after, I wanna know that. Even though we know we’ve lived through a tough year, miracles still happen, love prevails, things can go right, for sure.”

Jennifer and Matthew first reconnected about the film last year, and here’s what they said about reteaming for a third time…
