Stories about what celebrities did to earn a living before hit the red carpet and our TV screens are not unknown. From waiting tables to doing all kinds of odd jobs, the stars didn’t shy away from any kind of work. Or for that matter eating any kind of food. She may now be consulting the best of nutritionists and consuming the healthiest of diets, but before she rocked it on the floor, Jennifer Lopez used to live off just a slice of pizza everyday.
Now, eating pizza as a meal might be a dream come true for most of us. But not when there’s only a single slice available and you’ve to struggle your way up through a billboard. But the singer, songwriter, and composer somehow managed to battle that as well!
JLo felt the light back in the ‘90s as a Fly Girl in the sketch comedy In Living Color, revealed that she remembers pizza being the only food she ate. “I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer”, the 47-year-old said during NBC’s Summer Press Day for her upcoming dance competition show, World of Dance (where she also flaunted her sleek and flawless new honey-gold highlighted hair do), according to Entertainment Tonight.
“That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job,” she continued. Still, she appreciates that that struggle made her stronger. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” she added. “For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”
