Are Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck teasing us? Because J.Lo just dressed as a bride.
J.Lo hit the stage in a black gown with white details to perform “On My Way,” a song from the soundtrack of her upcoming film Marry Me, before vanishing behind a screen and come out in a bridal-inspired number. The Dolce & Gabbana gown had a corseted bodice in a semi-sheer fabric, a puffy tulle skirt, and a contrasting silk ribbon.
She accessorized with a bedazzled veil and a white floral fascinator, as well as nude high-heeled lace-up boots.
Following the release of the trailer, Lopez appeared on the Today Show to discuss if she envisioned herself getting married again. The singer and actress is now dating Ben Affleck, but she has previously been married three times and engaged twice (including once to Affleck himself; they called off their September 2003 wedding and ultimately broke up in January 2004 before reconciling this spring).
“I don’t know, yeah, I guess. You know me, I’m a romantic,” she explained to Entertainment Tonight. “I always have been. I’ve been married a few times. Yeah, I still believe in happily ever after, for sure, 100 percent.”
“If you can‘t laugh at yourself and just take it as it comes, I just don’t think about those things,” Lopez said. “I feel like I‘m a human being like everybody else. I’ve had my ups and downs, I‘ve made mistakes, and I’m really proud of where I‘ve come to in my life and who I am as a person, as a mom, and as an actor, and as an artist. So yeah, it’s OK, everybody‘s got that.”
The film, directed by Kat Coiro and based on Bobby Crosby’s graphic novel of the same name, follows Kat Valdez (J.Lo), a world-famous pop sensation who wants to marry her musician fiancé (Maluma) in front of a live crowd. Unfortunately, Kat’s fiancé is found cheating on her with her helper just before the nuptials. Enter Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson), an ordinary single parent and teacher who attends the event in person. Kat decides to marry him since he is carrying a sign that says “Marry me?” And there you have it: a Jennifer Lopez rom-com classic.
Marry Me is produced by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas of Maid in Manhattan, Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina, and John Rogers. Sarah Silverman, Jameela Jamil, and Jimmy Fallon to round off the cast.
