Jennifer Lopez is celebrating the evolution of Hollywood's portrayal of older women, emphasizing the growing array of on-screen roles available. The multi-talented singer-actress is eager to continue contributing in the industry for years to come.
Expressing her viewpoint, Lopez highlighted the positive changes in Hollywood's perception of age and experience, stating, "It has changed a lot, and I think it’s appropriate. As you get older and you have more experience, you become a richer human being and you have more to offer." She debunked the outdated notion that women over 30 lack value, finding it utterly absurd and even humorous.
According to her interview in ELLE's December/January 2023 Women in Hollywood issue, Lopez stressed the increasing recognition of the allure and depth of older women. She emphasized the inherent beauty and attractiveness that come with age, not merely physical but also the internal grace, wisdom, and character that grow over time.
Refuting any thoughts of retirement or slowing down, Lopez, who is married to actor Ben Affleck, expressed her ongoing commitment to her craft, stating, "I see myself working (as long as) I want to." She remains uncertain about a specific age limit, leaving the door open to her creative journey, potentially extending well into her senior years.
Maintaining a lifelong mindset of defying limitations based on birthplace, age, or background, Lopez emphasized her unwavering determination to transcend any imposed boundaries. For her, these boundaries simply do not exist, fostering a belief in limitless potential and an enduring passion for her craft.
