The movie was inspired by the famous New York Magazine article, "The Hustlers at Scores" — which chronicles a crew of dancers and their Wall Street clients in the wake of the financial crisis. For this role, Lopez had to undergo a crazy diet to tone up, she told The Ellen Show – which seems to have worked out well for her. The diet involved completely eliminating carbs and sugar.
As the video suggests, followed by hashtag #Hustlers, she has also taken classes to learn pole dancing. The video was taken by Alex Rodriguez, J Lo’s current boyfriend and former Yankees shortstop. He also joined Lopez in ditching carbs and sugar for 10 days, celebrating the challenge with a massive feast.
