Constance Wu was a J.Lo fan long before working with her.
On Monday night, Wu was on “The Late Late Show with James Corden”, where she revealed that 20 years ago she actually used to do impersonations of her “Hustlers” co-star.
“When I was 16, I worked at a little theme park called Paramount’s Kings Dominion,” she recalled. “I was on one of their stage shows called Pop 40, where we sang all the hits.”
One of those hits was Jennifer Lopez’s 1999 song “Waiting For Tonight”, which Corden quickly prompted her to perform for his audience.
“Don’t cheer too loud,” she said before launching into the song, “because the dances were modified for somebody who doesn’t dance.”
Wu also talked about finally working with Lopez on their new film.
“‘Hustlers’ is really about friendship and I love this movie because I fell in love when I was making this movie,” she said. “I fell in love with Jennifer Lopez. I think that’s sort of what the movie is. It’s about friends who kind of fall in love with each other. Not in a sexual way, even though we’re strippers and sex workers. And then we sort of scam men out of their money to get back at them for the financial crisis. And just buy a lot of cool stuff with it.”
