This Resurfaced Clip Of Jay Leno Saying Inappropriate Things To Jennifer Lopez In An Interview Is Cringeworthy

Back in 2017, famous director Oliver Stone of “U-Turn,” starring Jennifer Lopez, became one of the 263 celebrities, politicians, CEOs and accused of sexual misconduct. Around the same time that a model by the name of “Carrie Stevens accused him of groping her, we reported on a series of photos that had been captured back in 2012 at a red carpet event of the director inappropriately interacting with actress Salma Hayek.

It turns out, Lopez was calling out the director long before we were.

In 1998 the singer and actress conducted an infamous interview that launched quite a stir.

Having been featured in a string of successful movies (including the beloved “Selena”), Lopez was a star on the rise and thunder in her belly. She was feeling herself and in an interview with Movieline gave likely the most candid interview in entertainment pre-Quincy Jones’s interview that called out Michael Jackson for being a thief.

During the interview, Lopez talked about Stone’s initially poor treatment of her when she auditioned for a role with him.

“The minute I began reading this long, four-page scene,” she said in the interview, “he started walking around the room. Then he began rearranging the furniture. I’m like, ‘What is he doing? This is so rude.’ Well, he rearranged his entire office, and when I finished, the casting director said, ‘Oliver?’ and he turns and goes, ‘Oh–um, OK. So you’re a regular on that TV series? And I go, ‘Yeah.’ And I left. I told my manager, ‘I’ve never been treated like this and I never want to work for Oliver Stone.'”

When the interviewer asked Lopez what she learned about Oliver Stone’s sensitive side from being directed by him, Lopez apparently let out a “hoot.”

“That he’s a wild man,” she replied. “He doesn’t hide anything when it comes to sex in his life. He loves women, he has a lot of sex. He loves talking about how he sleeps with women. Like he’ll come onto the set going, ‘Aggghh, I was up fucking until four in the morning until I passed out.'”

It’s not the only time Lopez has had to deal with toxic-male behavior while working.

While taking part in an interview on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2005, the talk show host held up a magazine of Blender that featured Lopez on its cover. The singer could be seen wearing a crocheted bodysuit that had cutouts on the sides.

“It looks like you’ve taken up crocheting,” he observed as he held the magazine for the camera and Lopez laughed awkwardly. “It’s a shame you didn’t get a chance to finish the outfit.” Though Lopez plays along with the joke it’s clear she’s uncomfortable with the direction of the interview, but he continues on. “Now you see, could you actually walk in something like that?” He asks her. ” It seems that the minute you move everything would get out of wack?”

“No actually it was pretty comfortable, ” Lopez replies with a straight face.

With Lopez’s discomfort clear in her tone, Leno moved on from the topic but dang. Someone jump into a time machine and give 2005 Jay Leno a lesson on the unwanted comments from men Latinas don’t need to hear.

Ben Affleck is opening up about the early 2000s when he and Jennifer Lopez were Hollywood’s It Couple. The duo–formerly known by the moniker “Bennifer”–captivated the world with their glamourous and somewhat surprising courtship.

But the relationship eventually unraveled under the intense pressure of public scrutiny.

In a recent podcast appearance, Affleck revealed just how terrible and racially-charged the criticism on their relationship was.

“People were so f–king mean about her,” he said on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast. “Sexist, racist, ugly, vicious s–t was written about her in ways that if you wrote it now, you would literally be fired for saying those things you said.”

“At first At first it was like Dick and Liz [Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor], it was this sort of infatuation: ‘What an interesting couple‘. And then there was a ton of resentment. A ton of resentment against me, a ton of resentment against Jennifer.”

He went on to explain that what was so fascinating about the relationship to the general public–namely, how they had such vastly different backgrounds–wasn’t something he thought twice about.

Affleck went on to sing JLo’s praises, saying that she deserves all of the praise and adulation she now receives.

“Now it’s like, she’s lionized and respected for the work she did, where she came from, what she accomplished–as well she f**king should be!” he said.

“She was very much like the kind of girl I went to high school with,” he explained. “It was a very socioeconomically mixed, ethnically mixed place–those kinds of differences that just seem to shock America were meaningless to me.”

“I would say you have a better shot, coming from the Bronx, of ending up as like [Justice Sonia] Sotomayor on the Supreme Court than you do of having Jennifer Lopez’s career and being who she is at 50 years old today…just on a pure odds level.”

He concluded: “I never met anyone who worked harder than Jennifer Lopez.” On that, we can definitely agree.

Jennifer Lopez has also been candid about how traumatic the public response was back then to her relationship with Ben Affleck.

“I was eviscerated,” she told Vanity Fair in 2017 about the media coverage of her and Ben’s relationship we well as their much-maligned film, “Gigli”. “I lost my sense of self, questioned if I belonged in this business, thought maybe I did suck at everything. And my relationship [with Affleck] self-destructed in front of the entire world. It was a two-year thing for me until I picked myself up again.”

But now, it appears they’re both in happier places. Ben Affleck has two children with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner and JLo is happily engaged to Alex Rodriguez.

Um Hi, Armie Hammer Dropped Out Of A JLO Movie After Leaked Texts Claimed He’s Into Being A Cannibal And Is 2021 Over Yet?

Yes, welcome to 2021. A year whose heels only just hit the ground when Republican extremists terrorized the Capitol building leading to Donald Trump’s impeachment… And oh yeah saw actor Armie Hammer being accused of liking cannibalism. Yes, we said it cannibalism, ya know, an appetite for eating your own kind?

Gossip surrounding the Call Me By Your Name actor and his sex life has become so salacious that the actor announced that he was stepping back from an upcoming movie with Jennifer Lopez.

Armie Hammer announced this week that he will no longer star in the upcoming movie, Shotgun Wedding alongside Jennifer Lopez.

The brewing scandal involving Hammer includes alleged leaked messages related to his sex life.

The leaked messages alleged that Hammer has a thing for fantasies related to rape and cannibalism and was leaked by an anonymous social media account user with the name House of Effie. According to the account, Hammer told a woman that he was “100 percent a cannibal.” Another message suggested that Hammer liked the taste of blood.

“I’m not responding to these bulls–t claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” Hammer said in a statement to Page Six. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”

Still, the show will go on for Lopez who will star in the film being directed by “Pitch Perfect” director Jason Moore.

The film will be distributed in the US by Lionsgate and will stream internationally on Amazon Prime. According to Deadline, Shotgun Wedding was meant to see Lopez and Hammer “play a couple who gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as they begin to get cold feet about their relationship. If that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken, hostage.”

Despite the unconfirmed gossip around him, Hammer still has upcoming projects. These include the thriller, “The Billion Dollar Spy,” and a sequel to the 2017 hit “Call Me By Your Name” in which he played Oliver, a handsome doctoral student.

Its not the first time gossip around Hammer’s love life has caused a stir. In a 2013, Playboy interview Hammer described himself as a “dominant lover” and enjoyed “grabbing women by the neck and hair.”

He later told E! News of the candid Playboy interview, “Don’t drink during an interview.”
