Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines. And Sarah Jessica Parker met Lotus on the set of And Just Like That.

Lotus played the role of Carrie Bradshaw’s kitty named “Shoe”. And Lotus’ success isn’t because he’s a nepo kitty – He was actually a stay newborn rescued by the Connecticut Humane Society. He was then trained by Berloni Theatrical Animals before his big break acting alongside SJP.
