Josh Duhamel Reveals How His Former Marriage to Fergie Prepared Him for Working with Jennifer Lopez on 'Shotgun Wedding'

Josh Duhamel is opening up about his Shotgun Wedding co-star Jennifer Lopez.

The 48-year-old actor appeared on The Jess Cagle Show on Tuesday (May 11) and shared that his former marriage to Fergie helped him while he was shooting the new movie.

See what he said inside…

“I’ve known her for years,” Josh said of Jennifer. “Back when I was married to Fergie, we were in Miami…I don’t remember why, but we were there and we all hung out. I’d see her at certain events. So, I’ve known her. I was comfortable with her.”

“And yes, I think if I hadn’t been with somebody like Ferg, for so long, I probably would have been [intimated] because she’s a big presence and she’s a boss,” he added.

“She was always present, always collaborative, came with ideas, really wants to do a good job. And a total pro and a sweetheart,” Josh said of his co-star. “She is a powerhouse, but she’s also a very sweet girl. She is ‘Jenny From the Block’ in a lot of ways.”

Josh also added, “I told her, when we started, I was like, ‘Listen, this is me and you. If they don’t buy us being absolutely in love and this is like real the movie doesn’t work. I don’t care how beautiful the surroundings are or how funny the stuff is or how big the action sequences are. If you and I don’t have this beautiful connection, the movie doesn’t work.’”

“And we did have that,” he said. “And we trusted each other. And at the end of the day, I just forgot she was who she is.”

Josh recently shared that he almost died while shooting one scene for the new movie. Find out more here
