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.
They didn’t bother me at all,’ she said.
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.’
