While talking about her movie Hustlers in a new interview with W Magazine, Jennifer Lopez admits she nearly took a job as a stripper for cash when she was an aspiring dancer. “I did. There was a moment in my life when my friends, who were also dancers, told me about making thousands of dollars at clubs in New Jersey,” J. Lo revealed when asked if she ever considered hitting the pole. “They said, ‘You won’t need to be topless.’ It sounded awfully good when I was broke and eating pizza every day, but I never did it.” Lopez eventually got her dancing break as a Fly Girl on In Living Color, before she started landing roles in movies like Anaconda, Selena and the rest is history.
