Jennifer and Marc's Passion Project, 'El Cantante,' Premieres in NYC

Looking perfect in peach, Jennifer Lopez lit up 42nd Street Thursday night with her main man Marc Anthony by her side.

The husband and wife co-stars of “El Cantante” made the New York premiere a night of passion and Puerto Rican pride.

“It’s very exciting for us,” Lopez said. “It’s been six years coming, and here we are finally.”

“El Cantante” tells the true story of salsa king Hector Lavoe. Jennifer was on board as a producer before she and Marc even started dating, and she thought he’d be perfect for the part.

“He was the first person I called,” she admitted. “It was a no brainer.”

“She’s so cute, isn’t she?” Marc laughed.

Jennifer's best bud, Leah Remini, was also at the premiere, and while Leah gushed about Jen’s performance, Jen butted in to bust her chops.

“She came out of the screening in Puerto Rico, and she's like crying and everything,” Jen laughed.

“It made me seriously cry,” Leah admitted.

Jennifer and Marc take their passion to the big screen next Friday.
