When you think "Jennifer Lopez" what comes to mind? Her great sense of style? Her upbeat music? Do you ever think of her as a great actress?
Despite the embarrassment that was 'Gigli', Jenny from the block seems to think she's a great actress and feels she deserved an Oscar for her movie El Cantante. Sure.
J.Lo, who starred in the movie alongside husband Marc Anthony tells Latina magazine, “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.”
She says she ended up watching the 2008 Academy Awards with frustration because she thinks she should have no only been nominated, but should have taken home the prestigious bald man.
She added: “Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny; when the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later. 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 the Oscar and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award?’ ‘Thank you so much! I just want to thank the academy!’ ”
But don't feel too bad for Jenny, she knows she's going to take home that Oscar day--it's just a matter of time. She said, “Things will happen when they’re supposed to happen. I have the utmost faith and no doubt that it will one day, when and if it’s supposed to. You can’t get all crazy twisted over it.”
Do you think J.Lo's acting in El Cantante was Oscar worthy? What do you think of her as an actress?
