Jennifer Lopez Fantasized About Winning Oscar in Her Hospital Bed


In a fairly honest interview with Latina magazine, pop star, actress, and mother Jennifer Lopez opens up about what it's like to be her. We especially enjoyed the parts where she daydreamed about winning the Oscar for her role in the critically dismissed El Cantante the way, well, any normal person with big dreams would:

“I feel like I had that [Oscar-worthy role] in El Cantante, but I don’t even think the Academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there, everything that could be great ... Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny; when the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later. I was sitting there with my twins — I couldn’t have been happier — but I was like, ‘How dope would it have been if I would’ve won the Oscar and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award?’ ‘Thank you so much! I just want to thank the Academy!’ But we joked about it. It’s all good.”

We bet those were some hilarious jokes. Not winning an Oscar — that always makes you laugh, and laugh ...
