Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming sparkly romantic comedy “Marry Me,” was delayed due to Covid-19, Finally, the film will hit theaters and on Peacock on Valentine’s Day weekend. The film follows pop superstar Kat Valdez is about to get married before an audience of her loyal fans. However, seconds before the ceremony, she learns about her fiance’s cheating ways and has a meltdown on stage. In a moment of inspired insanity, Kat locks eyes with a total stranger in the crowd and marries him on the spot. As forces conspire to separate the unlikely newlyweds, they must soon decide if two people from such different worlds can find true love together.
In an interview with The New York Times, Lopez said about the Marry Me’s director Kat Coiro and about the film:
“I had to remind myself in this movie that this was actually a safe place to let those feelings out,” said Lopez, seated in front of that garlanded fireplace. “They’re making fun of me, that hurts. My instinct was to act like it didn’t.” Lopez added “She’s so ubiquitous that sometimes she doesn’t get the credit she deserves,” the director said. “I think there’s something of that in this film.” When Kat Valdez “talks about never winning any awards, I think that was a moment that was true to life,” Coiro continued. “She’s been around. She has fans like nobody else, and because of that high profile sometimes she’s not looked at in a certain way.”
“You really just want to sing and dance and act,” Lopez said. “This whole other thing comes along with it that you have to learn how to navigate — having that public life, this artistic life, and then your private life. What you want is just regular life, like anybody else,” she said with a pause. “All of it is put under scrutiny.”
Marry Me will hit the theaters on February 11, 2022.
