Lopez blames media for poorer roles

Jennifer Lopez believes her overexposure in the media has prevented her from having a more diverse movie career, imdb.com reports.

The 36-year-old Lopez found it easier to convince directors of her suitability for a role when she was an unknown — leading to parts in films including Out Of Sight and Oliver Stone’s U Turn. However, in recent years stories of her diva-like demands and romances have made it harder for filmmakers to distinguish between fact and fiction.

Lopez says, “In the beginning, I was a blank slate. I got to work with all these great directors because I was just a girl who came in there and did well in the audition. Then when I became famous, I was being offered movies that I could star in but that’s all I was being offered. When I think I should be seeing the big directors, they don’t even consider me. They see me as a sexy singer and too much in the media.”

    Apparently it’s true, lot’s of things that happened plus media made a lot of damage to her reputation in show business, that’s why it happens. If someone has bad reputation in any type of business, usually will not get good deals, this is the way it works.
