Top buns, a bold red lip, and a big announcement? Check. That’s how bonding time is done when it comes to Jennifer Lopez and her bestie Leah Remini.
The Shades of Blue star revealed last week that the duo will be appearing in a new film together. Lopez announced the news with a photo of the two snuggling under a blanket with smiles on their faces. “Every Lucy needs an Ethel. Look who is doing a movie together!! #SecondAct @stxentertainment @leahremini,” she captioned the photo, which showed her rocking an off-white knit sweater.
The upcoming romantic comedy, Second Act, stars Lopez, who plays a “big-box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle and gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree,” according to Variety.
Remini will fittingly play her best friend and fellow big-box employee in the film. Considering their close relationship, we have no doubt these two are going to have blast on and off the set.
The BFFs aren’t the only big names attached to the project. Lopez announced on Oct. 17 that Vanessa Hudgens is set to join the cast as well. Lopez shared the exciting news on her Instagram account along a picture of the two of them from what looks like an awards show. “Look who else is joining me in #SecondAct… @vanessahudgens @stxentertainment,” she captioned the shot.
On Monday, Oct. 23, the plot thickened when Remini posted a shot from the first day on set. In the sweet snap, Leah and J.Lo are twinning in blue vests, each of them holding up an employee nametag (Remini’s character is named Joan, while Lopez’s is Maya). “First Day! On set of #SecondAct @jlo @stxentertainment @egt239 #Family #QueensGirls #NyGirls,” the King of Queens alum captioned her photo.
