London, (ANI): Alan Poul, the director of forthcoming film The Back-Up Plan, starring Jennifer Lopez, has said that the actress does not have a demanding nature, unlike what the media suggests. The helmer admitted that he had talked to fellow directors to learn more about "diva" habits linked to her before starting work.
"I was initially intimidated. I did my homework and asked other directors who had worked with her," the Daily Express quoted him as saying. Poul soon realized that Lopez had no such issues. He added. "They said she was there as an actress and was a hard worker. And she was. There were definitely days when I was testier than she was. And this on a film where she worked 51 out of 53 days - she's in nearly every scene."
Also, earlier this year, Lopez had dismissed rumours that she maintained a diva status and was difficult to work with. She had said: "You have to keep a sense of humour. There's something people want about that diva idea. I don't understand it and it bothers me because it's not the type of person I am but what can I do?"
