Julia Stiles is set to appear alongside a star-studded cast in the upcoming film Hustlers. It centers on a group of strippers in New York City who drug and steal from clients in the club’s champagne room. Now, Stiles revealed some exciting details about that film that’s been kept closely under wraps.
In an interview with BuzzFeed New’s’ live Twitter morning show, AM to DM, Stiles said about the film:
“I was so interested in the story and the script, the director and the cast, that I told the director, ‘I don’t care. I will sweep the floors, I will make coffee and sandwiches for everybody because I just want to be a part of this,'”
“It felt like they really hit on something.”
In the film, we’ll see Stiles as a journalist trying to crack down on the story of the crime. Appearing alongside her are Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B, Lizzo and Trace Lysette as strippers.
Stiles revealed that her character is “window into this world for the audience” so audiences can “understand why these women did what they did.”
“I start off skeptical of them and maybe judgmental, and very quickly come to realize that they were kind of entrepreneurs, dare I say,” the actress said.
The actress also revealed details about Lopez’ “phenomenal” performance in the film. She describes the actress and singer as “not only phenomenal at pole-dancing, she’s phenomenal, period,”
“When I was in scenes with her it took everything not to have my jaw drop because she does so many things you can sometimes forget that she’s a really legit actress, and she just stunned me,” she said. Watch the interview below:
