This is how Jennifer Lopez prepared for her role in 'Hustlers'

Some work on their physique for a specific role, while others master a new skill or visit a new place. And it seems that Jennifer Lopez It is also loaded for his next movie. 'Hustlers' .
Interestingly, the actor took his fiance Alex Rodriguez to a hot night to prepare for his role as a stripper in the film.

The casting became infinitely easier once Jennifer joined. Everyone really, really, really wanted to work with Jennifer. That was the beauty of making this film too: cast what felt like the right people for each part and watch them interact How they should be together, said Scafaria.
