Jennifer Lopez in tears as shes snubbed from awards show after Hustlers stint

Jennifer Lopez, Latina global pop star and actress, has released a trailer for a documentary giving her fans an up-close look at her life.

Her new documentary called Halftime follows the star’s life from the 2020 halftime show all the way through to her rekindled romance with Ben Affleck.

J-Lo, 52, gives fans a glimpse into her life and career as she continues to go from strength to strength despite knockbacks – one of which, happened mere months ago.

Jennifer, who recently appeared in movie Hustlers, failed to land a nomination for the stint – and in her new doc she's seen getting teary over the lack of recognition.

She was expected to win an Oscar for the Best Supporting Actress in the iconic movie Hustlers, which movie explored the 2007 economic crash, following strippers Ramona and Destiny who turned to fraud to make their money.

The movie grossed more than $100million (£80m) in the US and was inspired by a true story told by the New York magazine in 2015.

In the documentary, Jennifer was asked: “Do you think you’ll be nominated for an Oscar?” To which her replies: “I mean, I hope so!”

However, it soon flipped to a scene where J-Lo was in bed crying as she said: “It was hard, I just had very low self-esteem. I had to really figure out who I was," after she failed to get nominated.

Her new documentary, Halftime, is the showcase of the "second half" of her life after reaching 50 as she reflects on her career.

The documentary will premiere on June 8, opening this year’s Tribeca Film Festival before moving onto Netflix the following week, on 14 June.

Her fiancé Ben Affleck, also features in the the documentary, alongside clips showing Jennifer's passion to give "substance".

During one scene where the star is rehearsing for her Super Bowl halftime performance, she urged with the crew to give a "real" performance as she's heard yelling: “I’m trying to give you something with substance, not just out there shaking our f****** asses.

“I want something real.”

The documentary airs on Netflix on June 14.
