In Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue, the 50-year-old superstar shared she turned down a famous role that earned the actress an Oscars nomination in 2003.

The Academy's Oscar nominations are not pleasing everyone though: Many people called out the organization for failing to recognize other critically-acclaimed movies, including Hustlers, The Farewell, and Uncut Gems.

The performer explained that the role went to the flawless actress, but she still thinks about the missed opportunity.

Unfaithful starred Lane and Richard Gere as a couple, Edward and Connie, undergoing a crisis in their marriage when Edward discovers Connie has lied about having an affair. "I should have known that Adrian Lyne was going to kill it, but I didn't", she shared.

The film, which was released in 2002, ends with Edward accidentally murdering Connie's lover Paul and dealing with the repercussions. JLo was expected to receive a nomination for Actress in a Supporting Role.

Jennifer Lopez's love don't cost a thing-but there's one thing that has her love for life.

As fans reel in the wake of Jennifer Lopez's shocking Oscars snub for her performance in Lorene Scafaria's stripper drama Hustlers, the two-time Golden Globe-nominated actress has revealed she once turned down a juicy role that scored its eventual performer an Academy Award nomination.

Lopez's next act is the Super Bowl LIV halftime show with Shakira on Sunday, Feb. 2.
