Jennifer Lopez Gushes Over “This is Us” Star Milo Ventimiglia on The Tonight Show


While the beautiful Jennifer Lopez may be very happy in her relationship with Alex Rodriquez, she does admit that she does have another love.

That other love is “This is Us” star Milo Ventimiglia.

“I’m a big fan of ‘This is Us,” Lopez told late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon about the actor, who stars with her in the upcoming movie “Second Act.” “Watching him play a dad, I was like ‘ahhh.’ I mean, it is heartthrob time. He really is amazing and when I read the script, there was only one person I ever thought of. I was like ‘this has to be Milo.’”

And yes, Ventimiglia will play her romantic lead in the film, a film that Lopez we need more of these days. “You need that funny, quirky look at life sometimes,” Lopez says during her appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Friday (Aug. 17) in which she also talked about her current show “World of Dance.” “I think things are, you know, tough sometimes and we need that escape. I’ve always loved those types of movies.”

According to reports, the movie will focus on the story of a woman who enters the corporate workforce in her forties.
