Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini Are Best Friends Since When?
Leah and JLo share a special bond and are friends for more than ten years. The two came to know each other when Lopez’s former husband Marc Anthony introduced them to each other. Remini was with her husband Angelo Pagan when she got familiar with Jennifer for the first time at a film premiere. The two have been best friends since 2004 and it was Man on Fire film’s premiere.
Remini spoke about their friendship in 2018 during an interview. She said, “I was friends with March Anothony, and then he started dating Jennifer, and he was doing a film. I went to the premier and he said ‘you have to meet Jennifer! And he was telling Jennifer, ‘you have to meet Leah and Angelo.”
Additionally, she said, “so, we went to the premiere hoping she was gonna be ugly in real life. And then when I was approaching her, I was like, ‘I hope it is the lighting, Maybe she just looks good in here.’ As I got closer I was like, ‘Oh damn, there is a lot of light right here and she looks really pretty.”
Jennifer also shared about their friendship and how it felt to her. The Marry Me star said, “it was one of those instant chemistry things, where you just feel like, ‘I love this person. I love being around this person. This person makes me laugh. She is cool and we also have very similar upbringings. That is why we work well together.”
