Hollywood actor and singer Jennifer Lopez said she is thinking of quitting the showbiz industry because of body shaming.

The Waiting for Tonight singer announced it in Netflix documentary Halftime, which is about her life and career.

“There were many times where I was just like, ‘I think I’m just going to quit,’” she said. “I had to really figure out who I was and I believe in that and [I don’t] believe in anything else.”

It is pertinent to mention that the celebrated artist drew criticism for her portrayal of Salena back in 1997. Jennifer Lopez became the first Latina actor to earn $1 million from any film. 

“When I started working, the beauty ideal was very thin, blonde, tall, not a lot of curves,” Jennifer added. “I grew up around women with curves so it was nothing I was ever ashamed of. 

“It [is] hard when you think people think you’re a joke, a punchline. But it wound up affecting things in a way that I never intended.”
