"I've known her for years," Josh tells the "Jess Cagel Show" on Sirius XM. "Back when I was married to Fergie, we were in Miami... and we all hung out. I'd see her at certain events... I was comfortable with her."
"I think if I hadn't been with somebody like Ferg, for so long, I probably would have been (intimidated) because she's a big presence and she's a boss."
Josh admits he had a blast filming with "Jenny From the Block", adding, "She was always present, always collaborative, came with ideas, really wants to do a good job. And a total pro and a sweetheart. She is a powerhouse, but she's also a very sweet girl."
"I told her, when we started, I was like, 'Listen, this is me and you. If they don't buy us being absolutely in love and this is, like, real, the movie doesn't work. I don't care how beautiful the surroundings are or how funny the stuff is or how big the action sequences are. If you and I don't have this beautiful connection, the movie doesn't work'. And we did have that... At the end of the day, I just forgot she was who she is."
Josh and J.Lo play a couple planning a destination wedding in the new movie.
