by Yah Yah

Since bursting onto the scene in the 90s, Jennifer Lopez has enjoyed a well-rounded career. She can act, she can sing, she can dance. Not to mention the fact that she’s drop-dead gorgeous, J. Lo is #goals for many of our favorite celebrities.

The multi-talented artist recently sat down with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. During the interview, she spoke candidly about her life in the limelight as well as speaking on her own #metoo experience in Hollywood.

About Sexual Harassment 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.” […] “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.’ ”

On her list of strengths:

“Great performer, great actress, great producer. […]Most importantly, a great mother, great sister, and a great girlfriend. I’ve also been a great wife.”

On her work ethic:

“I’m a workaholic,” Lopez says bluntly. “My instinct is to fill every single minute of my life with work, so I’ve had to learn balance. When you take on too much, that can be the enemy of great.”
