jennifer lopez Stripping

American actress, singer, dancer, fashion designer, producer and businesswoman Jennifer Lopez has revealed that she considered Stripping during her youth when things got hard for her as a struggling dancer.

The 50-year-old made these known during an interview with W magazine focused on her role in the hit crime-drama Hustlers in which she portrayed stripper/scammer Ramona Vega. Take a look below.

“There was a moment in my life when my friends, who were also dancers, told me about making thousands of dollars at clubs in New Jersey,” she told the magazine. “They said, ‘You won’t need to be topless.’ It sounded awfully good when I was broke and eating pizza every day, but I never did it.”

While speaking on her role in the movie Hustlers:

“I had never played someone this dark or complicated,” she said. “I liked that Ramona, the character I play, and the other strippers were looked at as equals to their patrons, the guys on Wall Street. Ramona reminded me of that girlfriend we all have who is exciting but can also get you into trouble. You always miss that friend when she’s gone, but when you get together, you worry you might find yourself in some crazy situation. That’s Ramona.”
