Jennifer Lopez has a new movie project coming, however another pop star could have starred on it as well! The movie “Hustlers” will tell the story of a group of strippers who steal money from rich and disgusting men.
J-Lo and Cardi B are already confirmed in the cast, but Bebe Rexha was also approached by producers to be part of the “Hustlers” film, which is based on the article “Hustlers at Scores,” published in 2015 by The Cut.
Speaking to Beats 1, Bebe confirmed she auditioned for the role of a Russian stripper. “I auditioned for a movie recently, but I didn’t get it. It went to Cardi, but that’s fine — it didn’t go to Cardi, no, she didn’t have that spot, it was a different girl, the blonde girl,” she said. “I auditioned for the Hustlers movie, but I was supposed to be the Russian girl from New York. […]
It’s really hard, though, because you have to be serious”. “My mom was not happy about it, though. She was like, ‘You can’t play a stripper! No!”, she added.
Despite the negative response from “Hustlers,” Bebe Rexha will lend her voice to the movie “Ugly Dolls,” which debuts in May. Kelly Clarkson and Nick Jonas are also in the cast of voice actors for the animation.
