The female driven ‘Hustlers’ recently had it’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. All the big stars were there to greet the fans and talk to the press. Jennifer Lopez took her fiancee Alex Rodriguez to the festive occasion. The film tells the story of strip club employees who band together to scam their Wall Street clients. Superstar JLo was really determined to join the movie.

“I just want to take care of my grandma, maybe go shopping every once in a while.”

“When I was a kid, I always wanted to work with animals. I was close.”

Quote: Jennifer Lopez

“I read the script and I thought it was a really interesting character and an interesting story. Then I said down with Lorene to talk to her about it. And we kind of had the same ideas how we saw what the movie could be. And I just thought, this is something that I can really sink my teeth into. Something I could really.. that would be fun for me to explore. Also a tiny bit scary.” 

Quote: Lili Reinhart

“I just feel incredible lucky that I was able to be part of something that was so female driven. Because I think it’s quite rare. And hopefully, I think it encourages people to.. I don’t know, believe in women driven films and women directors and women writers. I think once people see this film, they will be like; hell yeah. Let’s have more whatever that is.” 

Quote: Constance Wu

“I think because it explored the humanity of characters that society has often placed judgment upon. And I think as artists, our obligation is to give humanity to those whose stories haven’t been told.” 

Quote: Lorene Scafaria

“I wanted Jennifer Lopez for this role as soon as I re-opened my script and saw her leap off the page. And I met with Constance and fell in love with her and I and Jen would have incredible chemistry.”

“These are my co-workers.”

“What if somebody calls the cops?”

“And says what? “I spent five thousand dollars at a strip club, send help?””

“We’re a family now. A family with money!”

JLo recently turned 50 years old and still looks incredible. She also made quite an impression on her co-stars. 

Quote: Trace Lysette

“I learned that you can be a mega star and still be very sweet and down to earth. That is what I learned from J.Lo.” 

Quote: Madeline Brewer

“Always be working harder, because that is what J.Lo is doing. And it is working for her.” 

Speaking of working harder, for the role as Ramona, Jennifer had to learn how to pole dance. That was no piece of cake and she even got some tips from rapper and former stripper Cardi B.

Quote: Jennifer Lopez

“It was actually about six weeks that I had to learn. So that was kind of a crash course. Cause even when I spoke to Cardi and I was talking to her about doing the movie, I asked her.. I said; listen, I just started learning how to do the pole dancing. And she is like; it is so hard. It took me years. And she’s like; I am really good at it now. And I was like; I am not. But I’ve to look like I am good so I have a lot of work to do. I don’t even know how to explain it. You just gotta get on that pole and attack it. Or else it attacks you, and it did. It beat me up.” 

Quote: Mette Towley

“I had a burn on my leg that lasted for three months, from my lessons. It was so challenging and I have such an appreciation for the women that do it for fitness and do it for profession now. Absolutely.” 

Quote: Trace Lysette

“I didn’t get a pole solo, but I did have a little stage moment with J.Lo and the girls. You’ll see, it’s very intimate and fun and Usher is there too, so..” 

So if you can’t wait to see that fun and intimate scene, then go and check out ‘Hustlers’ as soon as you can!

“We didn’t do anything wrong. You know, Tony wouldn’t let this happen. I’m going to text him.”

“Who gave her her phone back?”
