Jennifer Lopez was serious about researching her latest role.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Lorene Scafaria — the writer-director of the Lopez-led flick, Hustlers — reveals that the 49-year-old entertainer went to great lengths to study her character, a scamming stripper named Ramona, so much so that she got her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, involved.
“She and Alex went and visited a strip club, and she was able to give me some… insights,” Scafaria tells the outlet with a laugh.
Additionally, Lopez worked hard to get in even better shape for the role as she learned how to pole dance.
“She’s obviously such an unbelievable dancer, but she trained so hard-core for this,” Scafaria says. “Pole dancing is not like anything else. It required muscles you don’t know you have. So we did treat it a little bit like a sports movie in that way.”
