Their hit film became a fan favorite after its debut 22 years ago.

And the cast of My Best Friend's Wedding reunited in style for Entertainment Weekly's annual romantic comedy issue.

Julia Roberts stunned on the cover wearing a white suit while Cameron Diaz looked lovely in layers of pink tulle for her first 'major magazine photo shoot in years.'

The cult classic was filmed in the summer of 1996 in Chicago by director P.J. Hogan and was Diaz's first major role.

'I mean, I was considering turning it down,' she told Tim Stack. 'No, I’m kidding. I got to work with these folks and Julia. It was, like, a huge break for me.'

Diaz then admitted that her sister-in-law Nicole Richie is 'obsessed' with the flick and made her stop at various filming spots during a visit to the Windy City.

'She’s like, "Remember when you were walking down the street right here and then …" It was so much fun,' Cameron said. 'I was like, "Yes, I think I do." She’s like, "I do, and it really means a lot to me, so I would like for you to pretend like you do."'

Rupert Everett admitted that his bad attitude nearly cost him the role as Roberts' faux fiancee, George Downes, but he ultimately changed his ways and said 'it was a complete changing point for me.'

'The last time I saw it, it kind of made me cry just thinking of how magic that time was, that summer,' Everett said.

In one infamous scene, the group goes to a karaoke night and coaxes Diaz' character Kimmy into singing despite her real fear.

'I was terrified to do that scene, for real,' she said. 'I allowed the true terror of singing in front of people to be alive in me. I wanted to run and hide, and Dermot kept me there.'

Despite the years away from the silver screen, Cameron admitted that fans still flock to her with kind words about the movie.

'It’s just this joyous feeling that you get off of them. I appreciate that so much.”

The film opened on June 20, 1997, to $21 million and ended up with a domestic gross of $127 million.

The classic film tells the story of two friends, Julia Roberts and Dermot Mulroney, who made a pact to be married if either was single by the time they were 28-years-old.

When Roberts, who portrayed food critic Julianne Potter, found out that Mulroney was engaged to a 20-year-old college student, she devised a plan to stop the wedding and marry the man of her dreams
