Jennifer Lopez has nothing but gratitude for the life she has now as one of Hollywood's most recognizable forces, but she can't help but think about how things could be if she wasn't famous.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the Hustlers star spoke on several topics, including plans going forward to work with more women in film. The 50-year-old star revealed that she turned down a role 17-years-ago and it still haunts her.
'There was a movie called Unfaithful. "And it was offered to me and the script, for me, wasn't all the way there", she says of the 2002 romance thriller starring Richard Gere, Diane Lane and Olivier Martinez. "I should have known that Adrian Lyne was going to kill it, but I didn't", she shared.More news: Joe Burrow Says Odell Beckham Gave Him REAL Cash After Championship Game
"Diane Lane was so ideal for it", admitted Lopez, "and it was clearly her intention, but when I think about that ..." "One of the things I want to do at my production company with my partner is to take the women from the background and put them at the forefront and tell their stories".
A little drastic there, hun.
Considering her striking performance in the 2019 film, many were also rooting for her to land an Oscar nomination, but that did not happen. Actress Jennifer Lopez has admitted that she wants to live a simple life and would prefer to live in a small town in Italy. "Find another life where it's a little bit more simple and organic and where I get to ride a bike, and buy bread, and put it in my basket, and then go home and put jelly on it, and just eat and paint".

The 2020 Oscar nominations have been announced, and just as it is every year, the 24-category field of nominees is a maddenning mix of satisfying, infuriating, and simply baffling.

"It's about breaking the mold of what people are used to", she said of collaborating with women who direct films. And the only Black actor nominated was for...you guessed it: "a slavery movie".
