Well, listen, nobody ever accused the gal of being modest. Jennifer Lopez — actress, singer and mother of twins — says she could have been an Oscar contender. If only the Academy members bothered to see the film. Which movie is she referring to?
Well, it’s not Maid in Manhattan or The Wedding Planner. In an interview with Latina magazine she reportedly said:
“I feel like I had that [Oscar worthy role] in El Cantante, but I don’t even think the Academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there, everything that could be great.
“I was sitting there with my twins—I couldn’t have been happier—but I was like, ‘How dope would it have been if I would’ve won and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award?”
And on a side note, no woman in her 40s should be using the word “dope” as a descriptor.
