She followed her humorous quip with 'Y'all @jlo is an amazing runner' and added 'Love her foreverrr (sic)'.??

Jennifer, who is also a producer on the new release, appeared to be having a ball on set with former High School Musical star Vanessa, as they ran alongside a river in the city together on Monday.

Mother-of-two Jennifer teamed her form-fitting leggings with a pink sweatshirt and threw a navy quilted gilet over her ensemble. She sported a blue beanie hat on her head and left her tresses down past her shoulders in a straightened style.?

Sporting gloves on her hands, the vocal talent was beaming from ear-to-ear, as she ran alongside Vanessa in front of the cameras. Although the exercise proved to provide her with some difficulty on the wardrobe front, as the beauty was seen pulling up her leggings over her pert posterior.?

Vanessa, meanwhile, cut a glamorous figure despite her casual attire as she paried together a?grey hoodie with blue leggings and a bronzed gilet. She had her brunette locks in a ponytail and sported a slick of dark berry lipstick across her lips.?

The girls appeared to be in competition, as Vanessa cheekily edged in front of Jennifer, with the The World of Dance judge pulling out all the stops to keep up with her younger co-star.

Second Act is an upcoming romantic comedy that will see Lopez take on the character of Maya, a big-box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle in the hope of proving to Madison Avenue that street smarts can be as valuable as a college degree.

Along with Vanessa, the film also stars Milo Ventimiglia, who will play Jennifer's onscreen long-term boyfriend, and Leah Remini, who plays her best friend.?

Jennifer was seen filming scenes alongside Remini, where she appeared to take a tumble on a patio in the park - it's not known whether the fall was for the cameras, although more than likely, but the girls appeared to take it in good humour.?

While a smartly-clad Remini lay on her back on the floor, Jennifer was seen laughing at her pal while reaching out her arms to help her back up.?

Sporting a burgundy tailored coat with a pencil skirt underneath, Jennifer showcased her slender pins in a pair of court stiletto heels.?

Her close friendship with Remini - she and Jennifer are best pals off screen - shone through as the women set to work on their scenes for the movie, set for a 2018 release.
