Hollywood is unveiling a new skeleton hidden in the closet for years on each passing day. Thanks to the campaigns like #MeToo and Time's Up initiative, successful ladies came forward to reveal their experiences of sexual harassment and expose the monsters like Harvey Weinstein to the world.

The latest name added to the list of courageous women to share their tryst with Hollywood's sexual predators is none other than Jennifer Lopez. The Popstar recently shot for the April issue of Harper's Bazaar and shed light on many of her love and life experiences, remembering her early days.

A vocal advocate against sexual harassment, J. Lo has had firsthand experience with one of the dirty directors of Hollywood. When asked about #MeToo story, she said, "I haven't been abused in the way some women have. But have I been told by a director to take off my shirt and show my boobs? Yes, I have."

How would any "terrified" girl with big dreams behave in a situation like this? The exact question was roaming around in Lopez's head when she encountered the mentioned situation. Despite landing on the wrong foot of somebody in a power position, she confirmed, "Did I do it? No, I did not."

Whenever faced with such situation, the first instinct of any woman is to run and that's what the actress probably do. Then comes the regret. After dodging the situation, she thought, "What did I do? This man is hiring me!" But today, she is proud of her decision.

Jennifer is among the many brave women who have opened up about their encounters with big bad wolves of showbiz and have inspired the young aspiring actresses of escaping from the paws of those animals who find women any lesser than themselves and pay no heed to their opinion.

Jennifer also talked about her "healthy" relationship with beau Alex Rodriguez, whom she has been dating for the past 2 years. Naturally, marriage rumours are making rounds but the duo are currently in happy sphere without adding further complications.

"I do believe in marriage," Lopez admitted, "I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now. It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn't," she added.
