“I’m a little nervous,” Lopez added, “but excited and glad we’re doing it here in New York, you know. I wouldn’t want to do it any place else.”
As for what fans can expect from the doc? She joked, “I’ll tell you after I see the whole thing done.”
Several of Lopez’s celebrity friends supported her at the premiere, including Robert De Niro, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Today host Hoda Kotb, who told E! News, “There’s something magical about this moment in her life.”
Kotb continued, “How many people after they turn 50 go, ‘Okay, well, all my best years are back this way’? She’s a reminder to me that great loves come after 50. Great moments in your professional life come after 50. She reminds us of possibilities, and with hard work and an open heart, you can get those things.”
