    "A director at a fitting asked me to take my top off," Jennifer shared. After Scarlett inquired for more information, J.Lo revealed it was because she was supposed to do nudity in the unidentified movie.

    "But it was so funny because I remember being so panicked in the moment. And by the way, there was a costume designer in the room with me," she added.

    "So there was another woman in the room and he says this and I said no. Luckily a little bit of the Bronx came out, and I was like, 'I don't have to show you my — No. On the set, you see them.'"

    While she didn't name names, I bet whoever that director was definitely learned not to mess with Jenny from the block in that moment. We love to see it 👏🏾.
