Josh Duhamel is a renowned actor who has won the hearts of many with his good looks and charm. However, his success hasn't stopped the former model from acknowledging his peers, such as Jennifer Lopez.

The pair were not only co-stars for the "Shotgun Wedding" but also good friends. According to Duhamel, J.Lo was fantastic, and working with her was like recreating the sparks of an old friendship.

The former model also praised Lopez's performance in the upcoming movie and the 51-year-old actress's ability to adjust better to the weather of the Dominican Republic, where the romantic comedy was filmed.


The 48-year-old revealed on the show that despite the Dominican Republic being a wonderful place with beautiful scenery, he considered the hot weather unbearable, especially during a particular scene in the movie.

Lopez began her career as a dancer, who appeared in various stage musicals as well as music videos.


This scene involved Duhamel and Lopez running away from the people who came to disrupt their wedding. However, while the actor was usually covered in sweat, his co-star remained perfect throughout the filming.

The Latina goddess has made numerous friends throughout her career in the entertainment industry, many of whom are A-list celebrities such as the reality TV star Kim Kardashian and actor Sean Pean.


Although it wasn't possible to get along with everyone in Hollywood and Lopez reportedly has a bad relationship with the actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek and singers Madonna and Mariah Carey.

Lopez began her career as a dancer, who appeared in various stage musicals and music videos. She tasted fame in 1990 after winning a spot on the famous Fox series "In Living Color."

J.Lo's success as one of the "Fly Girls" on the show led the actress to her big break in 1997 as the star of the iconic film "Selena," which earned her more success.

The 51-year-old also achieved recognition as a singer after releasing her debut album "On The 6" in 1999, followed by several successful albums that have made Lopez the multi-talented star she is today.
