NEW YORK – Actress Jennifer Lopez presented on Wednesday her new movie “Second Act,” a romantic comedy where she plays the character of a hard-working Latina chasing her dreams.
At the world premiere of the movie, which the actress attended with her partner, former New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez, Lopez told EFE that the protagonist of the movie, Maya Vargas, and she were very similar.
“If I had not had these dreams of singing and becoming an actress, perhaps I would be like her, working in a supermarket,” Lopez added.
In “Second Act,” directed by Peter Segal and filmed in the New York City borough of Queens, the 40-year-old Maya, tired of her work as an assistant manager at a supermarket, is struggling to fulfill her dreams.
Lopez had arrived at the premiere amid steep security that kept screaming fans and media people away.
