When it seems that the #MeToo movement has managed to uncover all episodes of sexual harassment or abuse within Hollywood, new experiences come to light to remember that there are still many stories to tell. One of the last celebrities to be honest and reveal a traumatic experience lived a few years ago has been Jennifer Lopez.

During a round table organized by the American media The Hollywood Reporter - in which several actresses known as Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson, Awkw Afina, Laura Dern and Renee Zellweger - also participated, the Bronx diva had an episode in the that a director asked him to teach her breasts outside the shooting set and for no apparent reason.

"A director, during the costume tests, asked me to take off my shirt because I was supposed to be naked in the movie. I wanted to see my breasts and I told him we weren't on set," Jennifer Lopez said. "Fortunately, my Bronx vein came out a little and I thought: 'I don't have to show you my breasts, no. I'll see you on the set'," she added.

After that, the singer and actress described how she managed to refuse and that the situation did not end badly for her: "I said no, I defended myself. But I remember that at that time I panicked. And, by the way, there was a costume designer in the room with me, "denounced Lopez, who did not reveal the identity of either of these two people.

After that sincere testimony, the singer reflected on the situation and what she learned from her over the years: "If you give in at that moment, suddenly that person gets away with it, believing that he can do what he wants. But as I mark him a limit and I said no, he let it go and then apologized. The moment I left the room, the costume designer told me 'I'm very sorry for what just happened.' '"

According to the actress of Twelve Years of Slavery (2013), thanks to the #MeToo movement, "the difference now is that since these conversations are taking place in public, it is easier to draw attention when something is not appropriate."
