Jennifer Lopez Talks about 'Hustlers' and Confesses She Wasn't Paid up Front for Her Role as Ramona
Jennifer Lopez is blowing minds and raising eyebrows after she revealed that she wasn't paid upfront for her role in the 2019 crime drama film "Hustlers."
Almost three months have passed since the release of the crime drama film "Hustlers" in cinemas worldwide, and one of the movie's lead actresses and producer, Jennifer Lopez, is speaking on her experience making the movie.
The unbelievable revelation came during an exclusive talk with GQ as the magazine's 2019 icon of the year.
In her words:
"I didn't get paid a whole bunch of money for Hustlers. I did it for free and produced it. Like Jenny From the Block—I do what I love. This is our movie, where we run [expletive]. They know it's all women producers, woman director, woman writer, all women starring in it. We've been watching men take advantage of women in movies for a long time, so it was a fun ride to see the tables turned."
According to Daily Mail, Jennifer's interview was for one of the covers of GQ's December issue which allowed fans a closer look at her face as her blonde hair rests over her right eye.
Within the pages of the magazine, the 50-year-old didn't shy away from showing her sultry side in a black body clinging strapless leather dress.

“We’re really alike in our drive, in our ambition…We’re both super hard workers. We’re driven by our passions. And we have a tremendous amount of respect for each other,” Jennifer Lopez says of the commonalities between herself and fiancé Alex Rodriguez (@ARod).

What made the character appealing to the Grammy nominee was the fact that Ramona "had her own set of morals and values" and "was in many ways a good person" despite becoming "a little bit of a criminal."
