Jennifer Lopez burst into tears over the success of her brand new movie Hustlers, in a video posted on her YouTube channel.

The film, which was released worldwide on Friday, has already been dubbed a huge hit – and it means a lot to the 50-year-old.

In the YouTube video, which follows JLo as Hustler’s premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, the actress and singer cried as her producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas read rave reviews to her over FaceTime.

Elaine said, “I am so proud. Nobody knows how hard it was,” and an emotional Jennifer replied, “I know baby, me too! I know, it’s awesome!”

Hustlers, which was written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, is based on New York magazine’s 2015 article “The Hustlers at Scores” by Jessica Pressler.

JLo starred alongside Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B.

The plot follows a crew of strippers in New York City who begin to embezzle money by drugging stock traders and CEOs who visit their club.

The film has received an 87% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and their critics consensus reads: “Led by a career-best performance from Jennifer Lopez, Hustlers is a uniquely empowering heist drama with depth and intelligence to match its striking visual appeal.”
