Lopez was asked by “Vanity Fair” if there was ever something in her career that she said no to only to regret later. The “Hustlers” actress replied:

“Yes. There was a movie called Unfaithful. And it was offered to me and the script, for me, wasn’t all the way there. I should have known that Adrian Lyne was going to kill it, but I didn’t.”

Lopez regrets giving up “Unfaithful” acting role

The musician further noted how the actress that got the role did a great job of it. Lopez stated:

“Diane Lane was so perfect for it, and it was obviously meant to be her, but when I think about that…I want to literally, like, shoot my toe off. I do.”

“Unfaithful” was released in 2002 and starred Lane and Richard Gere as a couple, Edward and Connie. In the film, the pair underwent a crisis in their marriage after Edward discovered that Connie had lied about having an affair.

The movie ended with Gere’s character murdering Connie’s lover Paul by accident and then having to deal with the repercussions. The film was nominated for an Academy Award.
