“For everything that Jennifer has and is in terms of her music career, dancing show, film career, TV show, philanthropy – everything – when you are actually just talking to her, she’s a very easy going, normal human being that’s lovely to be around,” he said. “When you’re there on set, she‘s very present. She’s not somewhere else. She’s right there.”
