Jennifer Lopez's Shocking Confession: "I Became a Better Mom" After Making New Netflix Film

Jennifer Lopez stated that working on her latest project helped her become a "better mother." She spoke about real-life motherhood while addressing the audience during a screening of The Mother at The Whitby Hotel in New York City on Thursday. The actress and singer got personal as she shared what the Netflix film means to her as a mother. Lopez highlighted the beautiful themes portrayed in the Niki Caro-directed action-drama flick, specifically about the deep love and desire to protect one's children with their entire life. The film also stars Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, and Gael García Bernal.

Jennifer Lopez, dressed in a slim black dress, spoke about how the "cathartic" filming process related to her own life with teenagers and helped her become a "better mother." Working alongside Lucy Gaez, who plays her daughter in the movie, Lopez appreciated the opportunity to experience her on-screen daughter "mouthing off" to her on set, only to come home to a similar experience. Despite the humorous aspect, the experience was transformative for Lopez and led to personal growth.

Lopez further explained that while filming The Mother, she began to think deeply about what she wanted her child to learn and who she wanted to be to them. As a result, she feels that she has become a better mother as a result of this new perspective gained during the making of the film.

Lopez reflected on the significance of being a mother to "little adults" rather than babies. The actress, who is married to Ben Affleck, shares 15-year-old twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

In The Mother, Lopez plays an assassin who must protect the daughter she left behind due to the dangers of her job. The trailer showcases her character's duality as a "killer" and a mother who is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her child safe.

During an appearance on Today with Hoda Kotb, Lopez spoke about her experience as a real-life parent and how it differs from her own upbringing. She acknowledged that watching her teenagers grow up has been a unique and different experience than her own.

As her children grow older, Lopez observes that they are challenging everything in life and approaching it in a different way than she did when she was their age. She recognizes that the younger generation has access to a vast amount of information that has altered their perspective and way of thinking.

While conversing with Hoda Kotb, Lopez noted that her children's eagerness to question and challenge everything is great for the world. She believes that they will change the world for the better and improve upon the work done by previous generations.

The Mother, Lopez's latest project, will debut on Netflix on May 12th.
