Jennifer is all "OMG" over the success of the film's opening.
Jennifer posted a quote on her Instagram story from a Deadline piece by Anthony D' Alessandro that points out that "Hustlers reps a record opening for STX, Jennifer Lopez’s live-action fare (beating 2005’s Monster in Law at $23.1M)." She's clearly not taking any of this success for granted.
And it's not just about the money for Jennifer; it's about finally getting credit.
We're sure the financial success of the movie makes Jennifer happy, but what has to make her even happier is the praise that she is getting for her acting chops in the film. How great it must have been for Jennifer to read these words written by Pete Hammond for his review in Deadline:
All hail JLo, who manages to bring Hustlers up a few notches and marks a career best as her sheer force of personality and savvy, as well as often unfairly underrated acting ability that could put her in a pole (sorry) position this awards season.
And the rave reviews just keep on coming.
In conclusion, can we all agree on one thing?
The year 2019 should officially go down in history as the year that Jennifer Lopez could do no wrong. The woman has been killing it all year long. She got engaged to Alex Rodriguez, she went on tour to celebrate turning 50, her movie Hustlers is getting rave reviews and making tons of money, and the year isn't even close to being over. All hail Jennifer Lopez, the Queen of 2019!
