Popular Hollywood actress-singer recently opened up on the sexual harassment she had to face in the initial stages of her career. The Out Of Sight actress revealed that one of her directors asked her to remove her top during an audition.
The On The Floor hitmaker said that she refused the offer even though she was afraid to reject the director. While talking to Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Lopez said that she didn’t face any sexual misconduct recounted by other women in Hollywood.
"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," Jennifer was quoted as saying in Harper's Bazaar magazine.
The Dance Again singer, however, didn’t reveal the identity of the director.
The Boy Next Door actress told the magazine that she was afraid to speak up against the director because of the possible impact it could have on her career.
"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 behaviour 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’’, the 48-year-old added.
Jennifer Lopez expressed her support to the Time’s UP movement and wore black while visiting Puerto Rico with her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez. Leading Hollywood actresses wore black gowns at Golden Globes red carpet, to show their support to the victims of sexual harassment.
On the work front, the Hollywood diva will be seen in the romantic comedy film Second Act.
