“It’s like Matty and Jenna tied the knot…again.”
There are some celebs whose onscreen chemistry is so strong, fans can’t help but ship them together in other projects, and Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo just so happen to be two of them.
After portraying friends-to-lovers in the 2004 rom-com 13 Going on 30 as Jenna and Matty, audiences were hooked.
Well, now the duo has finally reunited in the upcoming action-comedy The Adam Project, and in a recent interview supporting the film, they pondered what it might be like if they worked together more.
During a sit-down with Good Morning America, Jen and Mark toyed with the idea of filming a 13 Going on 30 sequel. Jen explained how their roles in The Adam Project felt like an extension of Jenna and Matty’s relationship.
“It really adds to the feeling of the movie,” Jennifer said. “And it really does feel like a continuation of the movie.”
“Yeah,” added Mark. “It’s like Matty and Jenna tied the knot…again.”
Although the two only share one scene together in the forthcoming Netflix film, I promise you it’s so worth it! And when asked why it took so long for them to reunite on screen, Mark gave us the perfect response: “It’s kinda crazy. I don’t know, but now would be a great time to make a sequel to 13 Going on 30.”
“Yeah,” Jen added. “We were thinking maybe ‘50 Going on 80.'”
They even shared some iconic Razzles candy during the interview and quoted the film. Talk about nostalgia!
OK, but all jokes aside…
…but until that proposed sequel arrives, be sure to check out Jen and Mark in Netflix’s The Adam Project on March 11, alongside Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana, and Walker Scobell. And to listen to the rest of their GMA interview, watch the full video below:
