Kim Kardashian West is one of the biggest stars in the world, all thanks to her reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians. But now, it looks like Kim K will be making the move to the big screen soon, and she'll be doing it alongside another huge name in Hollywood. Kim Kardashian's hint about acting with Jennifer Lopez going to fuel all the cinematic dreams you never even knew you had.
The big news about Kim's career pivot to movie star was revealed in a recent Instagram video. Kim spoke to E! News host Jason Kennedy, who asked her, "You're working on something with J.Lo?" Kim broke into a big smile and said, "I am. My first big acting gig with Jennifer Lopez." Unfortunately, Kim wasn't to provide any more details about her new gig, but she did say that she knows all her lines and she's "so excited" about her mystery project. In fact, she had trouble containing her excitement and ended the video by repeating, "Me and Jennifer Lopez," and gasping.
J.Lo is currently shooting her next movie, Marry Me, so there's a possibility Kim is playing a role in that project. She'd certainly be in powerful company; Marry Me also stars Owen Wilson and is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Bobby Crosby. According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Marry Me centers on a pop superstar (Lopez) who, moments before marrying her rock-star fiancé at Madison Square Garden, finds out that he was cheating on her with her assistant and spontaneously melts down onstage and picks a random math teacher (Wilson) out of the crowd to marry instead.
Whatever Kim's acting gig is, she's got to be pretty pumped about it, since she's a huge fan of J.Lo, and even once said she's her "idol." People reported in 2018 that Kim hosted a movie night where she showed J.Lo's movie Second Act — and J.Lo herself showed up to join in the fun. "I never would have imagined this would have been my life,” Kim said at the time. “I always fangirl for her. Dreams do come true, guys!”
Kim went on to explain that she's always looked up to J.Lo. She said:
My inspiration for everything has been Jennifer Lopez. I would try and see what shoes she’d wear, what makeup, what hair — I became obsessed with glam because of Jennifer.
But as big of a deal this project with J. Lo probably is for Kim, it's even more thrilling for fans of both celebs. Here's to whatever magic these two are creating for their loyal followings.
