Besides falling in love with the story, the cast clearly fell for each other as well. “It was amazing. I fell in love with her,” Vanessa said about J.Lo when speaking with HOLA! USA back in January. “I just love her. She’s so sweet. She texts me and checks in on me and she’s become such a friend. I’m obsessed with her.”
Jennifer clearly felt the same way, lighting up social media with behind-the-scenes posts while they were still in production. “Such a great shoot!!” she said at one point. “So happy and so grateful for the new friends I’ve made and so fortunate to work with so many beautiful creative souls!!” She added the hashtags: “I love making movies” and “life is beautiful.”
