Jennifer Lopez Was Told To ‘Lose A Few Pounds’ To Get Rid Of Her Curves In Her Early Days
Jennifer Lopez has revealed that she was told in the earlier days of her career, she needed to loose weight.
Speaking to Instyle, the 48-year-old said that she was told to ‘lose a few pounds’ in order to get rid of her curvy physique – however, she refused to listen to critics, proving that she’s loved her body all along.
But I got a lot of flak for it from people in the industry. They’d say, “You should lose a few pounds”, or “You should do this or do that”. It finally got to the point that I was like, “This is who I am. I’m shaped like this”.’
‘Everybody I grew up with looked like that, and they were all beautiful to me. I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I still don’t!’
My dad loved my mom’s body – all the men in our family loved the women’s bodies,’ she said.
‘Being curvy or not being 6 feet tall was never a bad thing; it was actually something that was celebrated. And so, later on, when I brought that in front of the world, I wasn’t really trying to send a message. I was just being myself.’
