- Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez just shared some new intel about their movie Hustlers, talking about how difficult it was to learn the dances.
- Constance shared that costar (and former stripper) Cardi B had to teach her how to give a lap dance!
I hope you all have your calendars marked for September 13, cause that’s when the sure to be a masterpiece of a movie Hustlers is set to be released. ICYMI (and who are you?) the film stars Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B, and it’s all about a group of strippers who start drugging and robbing their clients.
The actresses had to learn to dance like strippers for the film, and JLo told Entertainment Weekly that pole dancing was “one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done.” It also sounds like Constance might’ve had a tough time getting the hang of lap dancing, cause Cardi B had to step in—well, on film at least! Constance says,”[We filmed] a scene where she’s teaching me how to give a lap dance…She’s like, ‘Show me what you’ve got!’ So I try. She’s like, ‘Honey, no! This is terrible!'” And Cardi B is an ex-stripper, so she probably knew what she was talking about!
Sadly, for those who are excited to see Cardi B make her acting debut in Hustlers, it looks like her role will be super small. Her costar Madeline Brewer told Cosmopolitan that Cardi only did one day of shooting for the movie, meaning that she likely doesn’t have a ton of screen time. However, it looks like her role is super fun:
And if it makes you feel any better, Lizzo will be playing her flute in the movie, so there is still a LOT to look forward to here!
