JENNIFER Lopez has revealed fresh details of the traumatic moment a pervert film director told her he wanted to see her boobs.
The actress, 50, said the unnamed filmmaker left her startled when he demanded she go topless off set before a nude scene.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter out on Wednesday, J-Lo recalled: "He wanted to see my boobs.
“I said, ‘no,’ I stood up for myself.
"But it was so funny because I remember being so panicked in the moment.”
She added: “And by the way, there was a costume designer in the room with me.
"So there was another woman in the room and he says this and I said no.”
But the Jenny From The Block singer credited her tough response to her upbringing in the mean streets of The Bronx in New York City.
She said: "Luckily, a little bit of the Bronx came out, and I was like, ‘I don’t have to show you my – No. On the set, you see them.'"
Lopez believes her ability to stick up for herself could have prevented the director making more women uncomfortable in future.
She added: "That’s the thing, because if you give in, in that moment, all of a sudden that person is off and running, thinking they can do whatever they want.
“And because I put up a little boundary right there and said no, he laid off and then later on apologized.
"But the minute he walked out of the room the costume designer was like, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry that just happened.'”
She told of the harrowing #MeToo experience during a round-table interview alongside fellow stars Laura Dern, Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellweger, Awkwafina and Lupita Nyong’o.
Despite Johansson asking for the name of the director, J-Lo remained tight-lipped about his identity.
Her latest disclosures come a year after she first made the startling claims in Harpar's Bazaar.
Then, she described the panic she felt as she fended off the disturbing request.
She said: "When I did speak up, I was terrified. I remember my heart beating out of my chest, thinking, 'What did I do? This man is hiring me!'
"It was one of my first movies. But in my mind I knew the behaviour wasn't right. It could have gone either way for me.
"But I think ultimately the Bronx in me was like, 'Nah, we're not having it.'"
J-Lo has sold over 80 million records worldwide and has grossed over $2.9billion at the box office.
