Lizzo has revealed details about her new upcoming striper heist film Hustlers, declaring co-star Jennifer Lopez “led the sisterhood” during the shooting of the film.
In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, the singer talked about her role in the film as well as her co-stars.
“She’s such a professional. She’s such a vet in the game. This was my first time on camera for a feature film. So I was looking at her like, Wow, you’re the leader right now. And she definitely did her job. She controlled the room and led the sisterhood,” Lizzo said about working with J-Lo.
Apart from Lizzo and Lopez, Hustlers also stars Cardi B. The film is based on a 2015 New York Magazine article by Jessica Pressler about former strip club employees who devised a scheme to steal a big amount of money from their wealthy Wall Street clients.
Hustlers, directed by Lorene Scafaria, is scheduled for theatrical release on September 13.
Lizzo also divulged details about her character in the movie, saying, “Her name is Liz and she is a flute-playing stripper. It was like it was literally written for me.”
“Her character is cool. She’s the loud one. She lets all the girls know what’s up. I’m celebrating this one girl’s new titties. I can get us riled up, you know?” she adds. “So it’s kind of like me in real life. Same outfits. It was a blast. It was really, really easy to get into that character.”
