Jennifer Lopez has many gay friends but says “No, I am not bisexual”

BY GREG HERNANDEZ

Jennifer Lopez has a new romantic comedy, The Back-Up Plan, coming out in April 23 so she’s doing all kinds of interviews to promote it.

Fortunately, one of those interviews was with Brandon Voss for The Advocate.

Here are some excerpts:

Gay directors have helmed two of your most successful movies — Robert Luketic on Monster-in-Law and Adam Shankman on The Wedding Planner. Alan Poul, who directed The Back-Up Plan, is also gay. So that’s a good sign, right?

It’s true. I get along with the gays — what can I tell you? We click. Gay directors have a certain sensitivity when it comes to women’s issues; I don’t know if that makes any sense, but that’s what I feel. They also have a tremendous sense of humor about life, so they know romantic comedy. I love them.

Does The Back-Up Plan feature a “gay best friend” cliché — maybe the guy your character asks for sperm in the film’s trailer?

[Laughs] Everybody thinks he’s gay, but I don’t think he was intended to be. It’s not specified, but it’s funny that he’s coming off as that. No, there’s no gay best friend in this one, but out of all the romantic comedies I’ve done, I find this one to be the funniest.
