Jason Statham opened up on the hardship faced by Lopez while filming and how she had to do things out of her comfort zone.

Jennifer Lopez had a therapeutic experience with Jason Statham’s film

Jennifer Lopez was reportedly not in the best state of mind when she took up the film. She was going through a tough time in her personal life and needed the role to get her through the difficult time.

Talking to USA Today, she shared,
“When I did the movie, I had just decided to get divorced myself. I felt in that low place. It was the worst time in my life as well. This character was at the worst point in her life. I had that to use. Thank God I had that to use. It was therapeutic. I know exactly what that feels like. Getting out of bed every day and getting to work is such a job. I’m not the type to do Ambien or wine or pills. When you go to work, you can’t be the person who puts that on everybody. You have to be professional.”

The Salt actress also revealed that the film’s optimism drew her towards it. She said,
“What I needed at that moment was [to know] that it all gets better. You just have to hang in there. It gets better. When [Hackford] first called me, I wasn’t thinking about divorce at all. Suddenly it happened and my whole world fell apart, and then there was this therapy of this character. Everything happens for a reason. It’s true. It actually is true.”
The film was adapted from the 19th Parker novel Flashfire, written by Donald Westlake, with the pen name Richard Stark.

Jason Statham on working with Jennifer Lopez

Fast and Furious actor worked with Hollywood star Jennifer Lopez in the action thriller Parker. The actor shared that he did not form preconceived notions about the actress. But he was surprised when he met Lopez as it was a total joy to be around her.

Statham shared with Collider,
“When I meet somebody, it doesn’t matter who they are. I don’t have any preconceived ideas about who they are and how they’re going to behave and rumors. I don’t listen to all the crap that comes with it.”
He added,
“She was as sweet as they could ever be. She’s just a bundle of fun. We had great chemistry. We had a great time doing the job. The relationship between Parker and the character that Jennifer played was good because it was trying to be sexual. It wasn’t. Never could it get there. There was a lot of tension there. It was nice to play with that because she’s so playful anyway. It was most enjoyable.”
