Jennifer Lopez continues to be so inspiring!
And no, we're not even talking about her Ain't Your Mama music video!
Speaking at the Shades Of Blue Television Academy event in Los Angeles on Thursday night, the actress and songstress admitted to having to fight to keep her now-famous curves!

While she wasn't showing them off at the event in her Elie Saab salmon top, matching trousers, and Jimmy Choo heels, the ageless beauty explained:
"They kept telling me to lose weight, and I was a dancer and I was athletic and even my manager at the time who I no longer work with was telling me, 'You need to lose weight. You need to be thinner.' I was like, 'No I don't. If I lose any more weight it won't be me.' You know what I mean?"
And this new admission all came after a fan told J.Lo how she was inspired to stop wearing sweatshirts around her waist because of the starlet's figure!
The 46-year-old even continued to dish:
"It was a fight. It was definitely a fight, and so it's good to hear that it helped anybody in some way because at the end of the day I was just trying to be myself without trying to fit into a mold of what everybody else should be. It's a different time now you know, which is awesome to see for me where it is about our differences. It's about all the diversity. It's just a more accepting time of everything whether it's body type or race or gender. We've come a long way."
We're so glad Jen fought, but it's heartbreaking to hear that she even had to!
We're all beautiful just the way we are!
