Lopez de­nies she’s a diva

SundayXtra - - ENTERTAINMENT -

JEN­NIFER Lopez says she’s per­fectly rea­son­able to work with and re­sents hav­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for “diva” be­hav­iour.

Dur­ing a roundtable with other high-pow­ered Tin­sel­town women, Lopez, 46, said she doesn’t de­serve her “moniker of be­ing ‘the diva.’”

When a man shows up late on set or acts bel­liger­ently, she says, it’s “to­tally ac­cept­able... mean­while, I’d show up 15 min­utes late and be be­rated.”

Women in showbiz are “not al­lowed to have cer­tain opin­ions or even be pas­sion­ate about some­thing,” Lopez said, and if they are, men will say, “‘God, she’s re­ally dif­fi­cult’… Am I dif­fi­cult be­cause I care?”
