Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey reunited – practically – to commemorate their 20th anniversary hit Noughties rom-com The Wedding Planner.

The actors, who played wedding planner Mary Fiore and pediatrician Seve Edison in the 2001 film, reached out live on Instagram Wednesday to share their favorite memories from their time together on set.

During the conversation, Lopez brought up the couple’s passionate kiss on the screen in the film.

‘It still feels like it was yesterday. Only yesterday we were in the middle of this area with the cinema, ”said the singer to her former co-star.

“Do you remember the scene when you wanted to kiss me?” Lopez remembered. “I remember you saying to me, I don’t know if you remember it. They said, “Miss Lopez, I’m going to kiss you now.” And I said, “Okay, let’s do it. Let’s meet it.” I remember it exactly. ‘

The Golden Globe nominee went on to comment, “When you do these films … we’ve been fortunate enough to keep doing what we love, there are certain moments that always stick out on your mind.”

McConaughey also touched on the importance of quality rom-coms during the pandemic and how they can keep viewers happy.

“I think the audience’s appetite, especially after last year, is, ‘Can you give me 90 minutes of escape? For pleasure? “He remarked.

“I want to know that there is a happy life, I want to know,” replied Lopez. “Even though we know we’ve had a tough year, miracles still happen, love prevails, things can safely go right.”

“Lots of people wouldn’t have done it [their own stunts]”McConaughey joked, reflecting on her time on the set of The Wedding Planner, commenting,” That was the day I said, ‘Oh, yeah, J-Lo breaks a sweat.’ When you’re on set, you enjoy doing the work. ‘

Lopez replied and said she enjoyed working with her [McConaughey].

‘We had such a good relationship and chemistry. We were at the beginning of our careers at the time. It was exciting to be working on a film. I still feel that way. It was a magical time. I’m also so romantic that working on films like this has a real feeling for me. ‘

The 51-year-old closed his discussion with a hint of a possible future collaboration between the two and remarked: “We have to do something again. It’s been too long. 20 years is too long. ‘

We couldn’t agree anymore, Jen!
