“So, Matt loves reptiles,” Burke explained. “And he’s been raising iguanas for 25 years and he has tortoises.”
When asked to guess how many critters he has, she playfully demurred.
“I don’t know! I don’t even wanna count them but definitely more than 10," she said. "He probably hides a few that I just don’t know about.”
She went on to explain that Lawrence keeps all this pets in an outside area where he feeds them and tends to them. She also admitted that she hasn’t learned to feed them herself just yet.
“I haven’t even been home to be quite honest,” she shared. “But I’m sure after the show’s over, he’ll be teaching me how to feed Jomo his iguana … I love it, though. I love that that's his hobby because it's so sweet to see him talk passionately about animals.”
As longtime followers know, the 38-year-old actor and singer proudly displays his love of animals on his Instagram page, even introducing fans to Jomo in 2017!
“Meet Jomo the Cuban rock iguana! Hatched him out of an egg 16 years ago! He's a sweetie love this beautiful beast!” he captioned a short clip of himself feeding his massive lizard. He has also posted a photo of his tortoises, as well as his other iguanas and his dog.
