Holding out hope: Promoting the forthcoming film on the Today Show  Jennifer revealed that – despite being married thrice – she will always believe in ‘happily ever after’

But when the diva learns minutes before the streamed wedding – which is supposed to be watched by 20million people – that her fiancé has cheated on her with her assistant, she goes out on stage anyhow and randomly tells math teacher Charlie Gilbert (played by Owen Wilson) that she will marry him instead. 

An unlikely romance forms between the pair in this modern love story about celebrity, marriage, social media and the search for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers.

Marry Me also stars John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Michelle Buteau (Michelle Buteau: Welcome to Buteaupia) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Mulan).

Although Jennifer called off her engagement to Alex Rodriguez earlier this year, she isn’t ashamed of doing what’s best for her and insists she is ‘really proud’ of where she is today.

She said: ‘If you can’t laugh at yourself and just take it as it comes, I just don’t think about those things.

‘I feel like I’m a human being like everybody else. I’ve had my ups and downs, I’ve made mistakes and I’m really proud of where I’ve come to in my life and who I am as a person, as a mom, and as an actor and as an artist. So yeah it’s OK, everybody’s got that.’

Meanwhile, Ben – who Jennifer rekindled her romance with earlier this year after 17 years apart – recently admitted he is in ‘awe’ of the ‘Jenny from the Block’ hitmaker.

He gushed: ‘All I can tell you is that I have seen first hand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them.’
