Jennifer Lopez knows a thing or two — or 20 — about romantic comedies.
The multihyphenate, who is currently rehearsing for her 2020 Super Bowl halftime performance with Shakira while presumably recovering from an Oscar snub for Hustlers, has starred in many rom-coms. There’s 2001’s The Wedding Planner, 2002’s Maid in Manhattan, 2005’s Monster-in-Law, and 2018’s Second Act just to name a few.
It goes without saying when Lopez shares her favorite rom-com we take notice. Ahead, learn which film J. Lo says takes the No. 1 spot in her book as the best romantic comedy.
Jennifer Lopez unwinds by watching rom-coms
Celebrities, they’re just like us. They too like to relax by curling up on the couch and watching a rom-com after a long day. Yes, even J. Lo turns to the comfort of a feel-good movie. During an interview with Vanity Fair published on Jan. 14, 2020, Lopez gave an example of a film she watches for a dose of relaxation.
“Is there a rom-com in particular that you put on to unwind?” Vanity Fair asked Lopez to which she replied, “There’s a few. First, Jerry Maguire.”
The 1996 film directed by Cameron Crowe is a now-iconic film that gave us a number of lines we’re still quoting more than 20 years later. Cuba Gooding Jr., who won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor thanks to his performance in the film, gave us “show me the money” in his famous scene with Tom Cruise’s character Jerry Maguire.
