In a candid interview featured in ELLE’s Women in Hollywood issue, renowned actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, 54, expressed her appreciation for the evolving landscape of roles for older women in the film industry. The multi-talented artist highlighted the growing recognition that women become more captivating with age, not only physically but also in terms of wisdom and character.

"People have realized that women just get sexier as they get older. They get more learned and more rich with character," Lopez remarked, emphasizing the inner beauty and attractiveness that come with aging. She expressed satisfaction with the positive changes in Hollywood, where women are increasingly valued regardless of their age.

“It has changed a lot, and I think it’s appropriate,” Lopez stated in the interview with Elle. Rejecting outdated stereotypes, she emphasized the absurdity of the notion that there is nothing valuable about watching a woman over 30, stating, "It just makes me laugh.”

Lopez credited her upbringing and core values for instilling in her the determination to break boundaries and resist being confined by societal expectations. She emphasized the richness of experience that comes with age, asserting, “As you get older and you have more experience, you become a richer human being and you have more to offer.”

The "Jenny from the Block" singer revealed her commitment to continuing her career without predefined limitations. “I see myself working [as long as] I want to. I don’t know what that age is. It might be 70, it might be 80, it might be 90, I don’t know. But I know that it’s there for me if I want it and I want to create it,” Lopez declared.

In response to inquiries about her future projects, Lopez expressed her openness to new challenges and potential directorial ventures. “I want to keep evolving. And whether I’ll take the helm and direct my own film at one point is a possibility,” she shared. Despite having declined directing offers due to time constraints, the seasoned artist remains enthusiastic about exploring diverse opportunities.

Beyond her acting pursuits, Jennifer Lopez is gearing up for a significant return to the music scene, with the imminent release of her first album in nearly a decade. As she continues to defy expectations and embrace her evolving career, Lopez remains a powerful advocate for ageless beauty and boundless possibilities in the entertainment industry.
