Jennifer Lopez Says Latest Role Helped Her Become a Better Mom
Jennifer Lopez is one tough mama.
As mom to 15-year-old twins Max and Emme, the actress was admittedly drawn to The Mother—an action-thriller centered around a mom with an assassin past who comes out of hiding amid a new threat—just from the name alone. As she explained to E! News in an exclusive interview at the film’s Los Angeles premiere May 10, “I can only do things that I really can understand in a way now, that I relate to.”
In fact, Jennifer said playing a lethal killer who’s reunited with her long-lost daughter gave her more perspective into the complexities of motherhood.
“I really found during this movie, I became a better mom because I was thinking about it,” she said. “I was exploring what that meant, because the woman in this movie really doesn’t know how to be a mom when her kid and her are reunited.” (To hear more from Jennifer, tune in to E! News tonight at 11 p.m.)
