Lopez is already generating Oscar buzz for her flick Hustlers. Should she win, the Maid in Manhattan star would make history at the first Latina to win an Academy Award in the best actress category.
Jennifer Lopez didn’t become the massive Hollywood star she is overnight.
Lopez stressed that you have to go “out every day and do what you do and find a path in.” The mom of two noted that if somebody is “tenacious” and works “hard enough,” they will find a way like she did. “That’s what I had to create,” she shared. “I had to create the life that I wanted to live.” Talk about tips to developing a stronger work ethic!
No surprise, Lopez’s hustling paid off. Over the course of her decades-long career, she has dropped countless dance floor hits and starred in a number of beloved films, including The Wedding Planner and Selena, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for her breakout role.
The “Dance Again” singer—who declared the upcoming movie is “about women – period”—plays stripper Romana in the film. Lopez had to learn how to pole dance for the role, so she took a crash course. “It’s difficult,” she admitted to Variety. “It’s funny walking in someone else’s shoes—you never know what it’s like. Until it’s you.”
