Jennifer Lopez has reportedly quit a movie because producers refused to only cast actresses less attractive than the singer/actress.
The 44-year-old star dropped out of “The 33”, the film based on the true story of the trapped Chilean miners, after her bosses wouldn’t agree to cut women she felt were “too sexy”.
J-Lo was set to play the role of Maria Segovia, who put up a tent and wanted endlessly for the miners (and her brother) to be rescued.
But, there were stories of other girlfriends, wives, and mothers, who were also waiting and Lopez didn’t want anyone attractive in the movie.
A source said, “Jennifer went nuts making sure no actress cast in those roles would be prettier, or have a sexier body than she does. J-Lo kept going through the hundreds of casting photos and whenever she spotted a female who looked too sexy she’d slash a big, black X across their face.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Jennifer Lopez has been accused of being a diva, something she denies.
She previously stated, “I think people love to look at them (riders) and go, ‘Oh my God she wants M&M’S … she’s crazy!’ I think everyone has their list of things that make you feel comfortable … like a certain kind of potato chip or water. I think the crazy ones are made up.”
Jennifer has admitted she felt insecure before about her career, but reminds herself she deserves all her success.
She said, “I was always so insecure. Then I grew, little by little, and realized, wait a minute, this is not a fluke. I’m not a mistake – I work my ass off. And I know what I’m doing.”
A former backup dancer for J-Lo said she noticed how insecure Jennifer Lopez was as they filmed the video for “Dance Again”.
The dancer said, “She’s so insecure about herself. And that’s why she has eight guys on tour and only two girls.”
Maybe J-Lo is just worried someone will steal her much-younger boyfriend. We doubt anyone wants Casper Smart.
