The flawless and always stunning Jennifer Lopez amazed fans with her insane abs in a tight white cut-out dress for a new interview in which she revealed her pain over being snubbed for an Acadamy Award.

The Hustlers star, opening up to Billboard after being honored with their 2020 Icon Award, explains that she was "hurt" when she wasn't nominated for an Oscar in January.

JLo, whose performance as Ramona in Hustlers, had generated quite a bit of Oscar's buzz, told the magazine that it was then that she really stopped worrying about people's expectations; "It really came to fruition for me when I got snubbed for an Oscar."

“Because it did hurt," she added. "But I realized I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. Look at my life right now. All I do is try to do something more exciting, more creative and more impactful than I did last time.”

In the interview, which was accompanied by an incredible, ab-envy inducing shot, Jennifer also chatted about the honour of receiving the 2020 Icon Award from Billboard.
