“I know we’ve both done a lot since then… – hello Mr. Oscar Winner! – but it still feels like it was just yesterday…”

Jennifer recalled how much of a gentleman Matthew was onset, giving her a heads up before planting a kiss on her for one scene, while the Dallas Buyers Club star remembered being in awe of his onscreen love interest as she was determined to pull off her own movie stunts, even though they left her nursing a sore ankle.

“I so enjoyed working with you, we have such a nice rapport and chemistry…,” gushed Jennifer. “It was like, a magical time, and I’m such a romantic too, that working on those type of movies have a real feel for me and are fun…

“The Wedding Planners of the world really do something for your soul.”

Towards the end of the chat, Jennifer revealed she had briefly toyed with the idea of recruiting Matthew for her next romantic comedy, Shotgun Wedding, but insisted she had plenty of other ideas for the pair to work together again.

“It’s been too long…,” she smiled. “I miss your energy, I hope to be around you soon! Twenty years deep, baby!”
