Jen­nifer Lopez (above) says it’s still chal­leng­ing for women to have a sub­stan­tial role in movies. The 47-year-old star, who played the role of singer Se­lena Quin­tanilla-Perez in the film Se­lena, con­sid­ers her­self lucky enough to be able to have landed the role, re­ported Va­ri­ety. “Se­lena was a meaty role, but it was few and far be­tween, es­pe­cially for Lati­nos to have a role like that. I think it’s still chal­leng­ing for women, es­pe­cially be­ing Latina. To have a role like that, I was very lucky,” Lopez says.

“I think the in­dus­try is still mov­ing and grow­ing, and it’s al­ways a chal­lenge for women,” she adds.
