Jennifer Lopez On Being Labelled A Diva: 'Am I Difficult Because I Care?'

Jennifer Lopez (photosJennifer Lopez photos) says she doesn't deserve and blames sexism in Hollywood for the label of being a diva.

"I've always been fascinated by how much more well-behaved we have to be than men," Lopez tells THR.

"I got a moniker of being 'the diva,' which I never felt I deserved — which I don't deserve — because I've always been a hard worker, on time, doing what I'm supposed to do, and getting that label because you reach a certain amount of success."

"Sometimes I felt crippled to voice my opinion. Especially because certain directors and the boys' club that they form can make you feel like, 'Oh, I can't say anything.'"

"I was always fascinated by how I could see a man being late or being belligerent to a crew and it being totally acceptable," says the star of NBC's Shades of Blue.

"Meanwhile, I'd show up 15 minutes late and be berated. And you watch this happen over and over and over again. Like, we're not allowed to have certain opinions or even be passionate about something, or they'll be like, 'God, she's really difficult.' It's like, 'Am I? Am I difficult because I care?'"

The singer-actress also speaks about how her stance on nudity has changed now that she was older.

"In videos and things that I do, I'm very sexy and wear little clothes," she admits.

"But the truth is, when it comes to acting, I did it earlier in my career and now I just don't feel sometimes that you have to do it. I've changed in that sense."
