Box office numbers be damned, Jennifer Lopez failed in her "Hustlers" role because she didn't do her homework … at least according to the real-life stripper who inspired J Lo's character.
We got Samantha Barbash in NYC Tuesday and she went nuclear about the deal that was NOT made before the movie was made. She claims a "Hustlers" producer, not Jennifer, contacted her to see if she would sign away her rights.
Samantha claims the offer was downright disrespectful, but ya gotta hear how she describes it — especially if you know anything about Hermes handbags!
She's also pissed because J Lo never spoke to HER about playing HER — and she thinks it shows in the movie. One scene in particular really rubbed Samantha the wrong way, and she walked out of the movie super early.
"Hustlers" grossed over $33 million in its opening weekend, and Samantha says that's just because people wanted to see J Lo on a stripper pole, which actually sounds like a perfectly good reason to buy a ticket.
Samantha thinks the wrong star was cast to play her … and it should've been Cardi B.
