J.Lo and her yellow pantsuit was Oprah’s special guest during her 2020 Vision tour stop at The Forum in California Saturday.
During her sit down with Oprah, Jennifer’s comments about her Oscar snub for her role as Ramona in Hustlers is worth sharing.
“I don’t need this award right here to tell me that I am enough.”
“I was sad, I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it,” she shared. “There were so many articles, I got so many good notices — more than ever in my career — and there was a lot of ‘She’s going to get nominated for an Oscar, it’s going to happen, if it doesn’t you’re crazy.’ I’m reading all the articles going, ‘Oh my god, could this happen?’ And then it didn’t and I was like ‘Ouch,’ it was a little bit of a letdown. Also I felt like my whole team — most of my team has been with me for years, 20, 25 years — and I think they had a lot of hopes on that and they wanted it too, so I felt like I let everyone down a little bit.”Embed from Getty Images
“I had to re-examine like ‘Why do you do this, what are you so sad about right now? You just had the most amazing year of your life — you just had the biggest opening of a movie in your career, you just walked the runway in Milan and had a fashion moment [in her iconic Versace dress], you’re doing the Super Bowl in a couple of weeks, what is it?'”Embed from Getty Images
“And you want people’s validation,” she continued. “You want people to say you did a good job, and I realized, ‘No you don’t need that, you do this because you love it,” eventually realizing that “I don’t need this award right here to tell me that I am enough.”
