"A director at a fitting asked me to take my top off ," Lopez recalled.

And I was like, ‘ We ’ re not on set,'” Lopez said , calling the unnamed man “crazy.” “ I said no, I stood up for myself .

Lopez goes on to call the unnamed director "crazy," before describing how she shut down the request in the moment.

"I said no, I stood up for myself. But it was so funny because I remember being so panicked in the moment," she says. "And by the way, there was a costume designer in the room with me. So there was another woman in the room and he says this and I said no."

"Luckily a little bit of the Bronx came out, and I was like, 'I don't have to show you my [breasts]. No. On the set, you see them,'" she adds.

Being able to stop that advance was an important accomplishment for Lopez because "if you give in, in that moment, all of a sudden that person is off and running, thinking they can do whatever they want."

"Because I put up a little boundary right there and said no, he laid off and then later on apologized," she says. "But the minute he walked out of the room the costume designer was like, 'I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry that just happened.'"

While things certainly aren't perfect in Hollywood these days, Lopez does point out the changes on sets over the last couple of years. One of those changes -- which was implemented on her latest film, Hustlers -- is a comfort coach for scenes that involve nudity.

"It was basically somebody who understood that world and said, 'These things are OK,' and, 'These things are not OK,'" she explains. "[The coach] made everybody on the set comfortable with what they were doing, because we had a lot of women who were half-dressed or naked, topless."

"I think what Hustlers exposes is that men have a very secret life, and they have a way that they think about and look at women that is very objectified a lot of the time," she says in Variety. "Lorene Scafaria, the director, was really great. It was a nonjudgmental lens. Whereas I think from a man, these women would have been judged, because men put women in categories."

It was so different from who I was."

"I've learned that I know who I am, I know what I do, I know I'm a good person, I know I'm just out here working my a** off and trying to fulfill myself creatively," she says. "There was a time in my life when it was such a big part and it was so hurtful and so hard that you think, 'I don't want to do this anymore, I don't want to be the person on the cover of the magazine every week for two and a half years, I don't.

"We’re both excited to have been given the opportunity to do that, as two Latin women, in Miami," Lopez tells Variety. "I think it’s important in this day and age for two Latin women to be standing on that stage -- when Latinos are being treated a certain way in this country, or looked at a certain way -- to show that we have a really specific and beautiful culture and worth and value, and we bring something to this country that’s necessary."

"I think that’s going to be an amazing moment," she continues. "That night, I want it to be a celebration of who we are. All of us, because we’re in this together. That’s how I feel. I want to bring everybody together in that moment."
