In scenes shot on Nov. 6 in the Bronx, the singer, wearing a sexy off-the-shoulder athleisure sweater and camo pants, sits across from a mustached Ventimiglia, who sports long, slicked back hair and an olive green jacket, in a diner. In another shot, the movie couple share a hug outside the restaurant.
The film follows Maya, played by Lopez, a gritty girl from Queens who works a dead end retail job, but longs for a better, bigger life. Ventimiglia plays her longtime love, according to Entertainment Tonight.
In June, Deadline announced that the Shades of Blue star would be returning to the silver screen, alongside close friend Leah Remini, for the new romantic comedy.
Remini, who plays Joan, Maya’s best friend and co-worker, posted a selfie with Ventimiglia on Tuesday. “Such a nice guy, this one! @miloanthonyventimiglia shooting #SecondAct @stxentertainment #NYC,” she captioned the pic.
On Nov. 1, J.Lo tweeted that the swoon-worthy actor would be joining the cast. “Beyond excited :),” he replied.
Second Act marks Lopez’s return to romantic comedy since 2012’s What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
