J.Lo – A Director Asked Me To Show Him My Boobs!
Jennifer Lopez (aka J.Lo) is the latest celebrity to speak out and share her experience with sexual harassment in Hollywood. During a recent interview, the 48-year-old actress and singer was asked about the Time’s Up movement. J.Lo revealed that early in her acting career, she experienced a jaw-dropping situation that left her “terrified.” She says,
I haven’t been abused in the way some women have. But have I been told by a director to take off my shirt and show my boobs? Yes, I have. But did I do it? No, I did not.
Lopez recalls being afraid about to speak up about the director’s request.
When I did speak up, I was terrified. I remember my heart beating out of my chest, thinking, ‘What did I do? This man is hiring me!’
It was one of my first movies. But in my mind I knew the behavior wasn’t right. It could have gone either way for me. But I think ultimately the Bronx in me was like, ‘Nah, we’re not having it.’
