Here’s how Lopez, Leah Remini first met

Los Angeles: Actress Leah Remini has opened up about how her friendship with singer-actress Jennifer Lopez first emerged.

“I was friends with Marc Anthony (singer), and then he started dating Jennifer, and he was doing a film. I went to the premiere and he said, ‘You have to meet Jennifer!’ And he was telling Jennifer, ‘You have to meet Leah and Angelo (Pagan),’ my husband,” Remini told

“So we went to the premiere hoping she was gonna be ugly in real life,” Remini joked.

“And then, when I was approaching her, I was like, ‘I hope it’s the lighting. Maybe she just looks good in here,’ and as I got closer I was like, ‘Oh damn, there’s a lot of light right here and she looks really pretty.”

“I even said that! I said, ‘Goddamnit, why the f**k why are you so f**king pretty?’ And she laughed,” she continued.

“(Then) I was like, ‘Ugh, I hope she’s dumb, ya know? I was like, ‘She could be dumb!’ I wanted to find something and I didn’t.”

Lopez added with a smile: “And we fell in love right there.”
