Jennifer Lopez stands as a testament to resilience and success in Hollywood, even after three decades. She has successfully conquered stages, screens, and hearts around the globe with her dazzling performances. Whether it is her role in the movie Maid in Manhattan or her power-packed Super Bowl Halftime performance with Shakira, JLo is a proven Queen. And even at 53, the artist has no plans of slowing down.

Earlier in May, JLo’s new movie, The Mother, was released on Netflix ahead of Mother’s Day. While the actress didn’t have much time to share motherly advice in the movie, JLo has recently shared one that has helped her reach where she was now.

Ahead of the release of the movie, JLo was actively involved in the promotion of the movie. For the same, Lopez spent two minutes with Netflix Tudum with co-star, Lucy Paez, who plays her daughter in the movie. Both actresses were asked to share a piece of advice their mothers gave them. To this, JLo answered that the best advice her mother gave her was “to be okay on your own.” Not only this, she also advised her to not run after “likes and acceptances” from others. Paez, on the other hand, answered that her mom has always advised her to “stay one step ahead.” 

Looking at JLo’s journey, it seems that she has applied the same wisdom in each and every step of her life. This has definitely helped her attain the remarkable success she enjoys today. The Mother talks about the life of a retired assassin (JLo) who gets back in action to protect her daughter from criminals (Paez). Niki Caro directs the movie which also stars Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, Gael García Bernal, and Paul Raci.

In a podcast named SmartLess, Ben Affleck shared that he knows all the songs of the actress and never feels insecure about her success. Jennifer Lopez has written two songs about her very own Batman. In the podcast, he continued to explain that whenever he starts to sing her song; she joins him. This makes him feel embarrassed in a good way, as JLo does it without so much effort and with beauty.
