When it came to her upcoming film Hustlers, Jennifer Lopez went above and beyond to understand her role as a con-artist-slash-stripper named Ramona.
In a recent interview with Vulture, writer-director Lorene Scafaria revealed that the 49-year-old singer took her character preparation to an entirely new level. In fact, J.Lo enlisted the help of her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, and stopped by the local strip club.
“She and Alex went and visited a strip club, and she was able to give me some…insights,” Scafaria said.
Although Lopez is a fab dancer, the filmmaker also confirmed that the actress went through extensive pole dancing training prior to the movie, which follows a group of former strip club employees who rebel against their Wall Street clients.
