Jennifer Lopez reveals near-death experience while filming ‘Shotgun Wedding’

While out promoting her new film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’, Jennifer Lopez revealed an incident that was too close for comfort.

While out promoting her new film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’, Jennifer Lopez revealed an incident that was too close for comfort.

Jennifer Lopez says she nearly went over a cliff while filming a scene for her new movie, ‘Shotgun Wedding’, in the Dominican Republic.

The 53-year-old has been busy promoting the film, which premiered on Prime Video on January 27 and also stars the likes of Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Coolidge.

While sitting for a game of ‘Who’s Who’ at BuzzFeed, Lopez revealed that she had an almost near-death experience, but that Duhamel managed to save her from the fall.

The cast were asked various questions about who would be most deserving of certain titles, with both Lopez and Duhamel picked as the most likely to nail a stunt on the first take.

“I felt like we got pretty good,” she stated while bringing up some of the stunts they were asked to film while wearing handcuffs.

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.

“So you know how in that scene where my dress was caught on the wheel? One time it got caught in the wheel. And I was going over. I’m looking at Josh. I’m like ‘Josh! Don’t let me go! Please’.”

“He’s like ‘I got you! You go, we go’. It was scary as f--k.”

Duhamel had his own harrowing experience

Lopez wasn’t the only ‘Shotgun Wedding’ star to have a close call, with Duhamel detailing his own near-death experience while in the Dominican Republic.

During an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ in May 2021, the 50-year-old explained that he would often explore a little cove during his down time, but one day, things got a little “tumultuous”.

“The waves were crashing like 30 feet in the air,” he said. “This rogue wave comes up as I’m videotaping this thing and literally washed me almost over the edge of this cliff.”

Duhamel said that a crop of coral helped keep him upright, but he still had some scrapes to show from the experience.

It turned me into hamburger on many parts of my body afterwards,” he said.

He told Fallon that he hadn’t shared the incident with anyone up to that point because he wasn’t sure what the studio would say.

“I never told anybody,” Duhamel added. “You’re the first person I showed that to, because if I had showed that to Lionsgate they probably would have kicked me off the movie.”
