Who says a global superstar and a math teacher can’t make it work? Rom-com Marry Me centers on Kat Valdez (Jennifer Lopez), a pop superstar who discovers – seconds before their globally televised mega-wedding – that her equally successful musician fiancé, Bastian (Maluma), has been unfaithful to her. Heartbroken and embarrassed, Kat spontaneously decides to instead marry a complete stranger in the crowd, Charlie (Owen Wilson). After saying "I do," Kat and her math teacher-husband must navigate their completely different worlds and form an unlikely romance.
"I enjoyed filming this movie. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Co-starring with Owen [Wilson] and Jennifer [Lopez] is an honor," Latin music superstar Maluma tells A.Frame. "Ten years ago, I said, 'I am going to be an actor in Hollywood,' but, I never thought my first movie would be with Jennifer and Owen – and in a leading role. A very important third wheel. I learned so much, and I am grateful to the team for letting me be part of it."
