When it comes to movies, what you see is what you get. Highly skilled actors and actresses morph into characters often unlike themselves to portray a story to captivate audiences. When watching their films, it’s always easy to assume that everyone gets along with one another off-screen as much as they do on-screen.
For some, that’s not always the case. Believe it or not, there are numerous actors who seamlessly played roles where they appear to be madly in love with their co-stars but, in reality, merely loathe being in the same room as their counterpart.
With the launch of the new movie Second Act starring Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini, many began to wonder if their friendship was actually genuine or if it was all for show on the film.
Together, the actresses had impeccable on-screen chemistry and appeared to be the best of friends. Now, all of the questions have been put to rest as the two co-stars came public with their true feelings.
While on a press tour for the film, Lopez and Remini made a stop on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Here, they laid it all out on the table.
After a few moments of watching the two interact, it was easy to see the truth: they’re the absolute best of friends! In one portion of the segment, the two have a hilarious “bicker” about the differences between Brooklyn and Brox accents.
Lopez took her side by defending and explaining the variations of Bronx accents while Remini mirrored her rebuttal and told all about the Brooklyn accents. Their “feud” ended in mimics and impressions that solidified just how well the two women knew and appreciated one another for who they really are off-screen.
While this kind of friendship isn’t always seen between co-stars, it’s always refreshing to know that they are that genuine and real with one another in their day-to-day lives. Are you excited to see their performances in the new film, Second Act?
