Speaking about her early days before fame, American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author, and producer, Jennifer Lopez, revealed she lived on just one slice of pizza a day as a struggling dancer before making it big.
Jlo opened up during a press day for NBC in Los Angeles where she chatted about her new dance reality competition show, World of Dance.
“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer. That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job,” said the Bronx native, who started out as a Fly Girl on the sketch comedy classic In Living Colour.
She added that those tough early days of pinching pennies and waiting for her big break taught her not to take her success for granted. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world. For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly,” she said.
Meanwhile, the Shades of Blue star has been busy spending time with her new beau, Yankees legend Alex Rodriguez.
As previously reported, the 47-year-old and A-Rod have been dating for two months, and recently spent a romantic weekend in the Bahamas. They jetted to the Caribbean from Miami on March 10, and J.Lo posted — and then quickly deleted — a selfie of the pair on March 12.
Lopez shares twins Emme and Max, 9, with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. A-Rod is dad to Natasha, 12, and Ella, 8, from his marriage to ex Cynthia Scurtis.
