Jennifer Lopez shared something pretty shocking that at first blush seems ridiculous but when you think about it, you get it — she says she feels like an outsider in Hollywood.
J Lo’s featured in a new video on her J Lo Beauty Instagram page. As she hyped her products for Sephora, she opened up about her time in Tinseltown, confessing she often feels she doesn’t belong in Hollywood.
On the surface, that seems absurd … she’s got 30 movies in the can, yet she said she feels like “an outsider.”
Ben‘s GF said, “I think for me, I know it is important for all of us to feel like we belong, um, and like most people there’s so many times in your life when you feel like an outsider, I feel like that in Hollywood sometimes.”
Now she could be unloading her feelings because she wasn’t nominated for “Hustlers,” which was a little surprising giving some serious Oscar buzz. Tyler Perry went off on the Oscars, saying she richly deserved a nom.
There are plenty of folks who are big stars who don’t get embraced by center Hollywood … and some of it’s clearly jealousy and ego. In J Lo’s case, she gets more publicity than just about anyone for things she does offset and people she dates, and that probably annoys other actors who don’t get the shine she does.
Bottom line … dropping that nugget probably helps sales of her beauty products, so it just proves she’s a grade-A marketer!
