Jennifer Lopez is sharing about a scary situation that occurred while filming her new film Shotgun Wedding in the Dominican Republic.
While out promoting the rom-com with six of her co-stars, including onscreen love interest Josh Duhamel, Lopez admitted to having a near-death experience when she nearly went over a cliff.
It turns out Duhamel, who was in the scene with Lopez, came to her rescue by holding on to the leading lady for dear life as to save her from the fall.

The terrifying story came up when the cast sat down for a game of ‘Who’s Who’ at BuzzFeed, during which they revealed which of them were most deserving of certain titles.
After several minutes, the group listed Lopez and Duhamel as ‘most likely to nail a stunt on the first take.’
‘Me and Josh got pretty good at it,’ the Bronx, New York native, 53, declared, for which her co-lead confessed, ‘l don’t think I’ve ever nailed anything on the first take.’
‘Really, I felt like we did pretty good,’ JLo shot back in the on-screen couples defense, adding, ‘Especially when we were handcuffed together and we had to do all that crazy stuff. Except for the one time when I almost went over the cliff,’ which peaked the interest of her cast mates who asked her to tell the complete story.

Directing her story to her castmates, JLo revealed the freak accident happened ‘when my dress gets caught in the wheel’ during one pivotal scene.
‘I was going over! And I’m looking at Josh, and I’m like, “Josh, don’t let me go, please,” she added, as she demonstrated the scenario by sticking her hand out for Duhamel.
‘He’s like, “I got you. You go we go,” she recalled.
Luckily, they both made it through. ‘It was scary as f**k,’ Lopez admitted.
Another scary scenario: During another promotional interview by himself, Duhamel revealed he had a near-death incident of his own during a shoot break in the Dominican Republic
During another promotional interview by himself, Duhamel revealed he had a near-death incident of his own during a shoot break in the Dominican Republic.
‘I had some time off. There was this cove near where we were shooting and the waves were just like amazing, crashing up against the cliffs,’ the actor, 50, told Access Hollywood’s Zuri Hall. ‘I wanted to go get a video and a rogue wave comes in and almost takes me out over the cliff.’
Duhamel thinks the jagged rocks in the area where he was at the time held him ‘from going into the water’ and ultimately over the cliff.
‘I figured I was completely safe and all of a sudden bam,’ he explained, while using his hands to describe the impact on his face.
