Heather Morris Says Jennifer Lopez Cut Dancers From Auditions Because They Were Girls
“She walks into the room and she says, ‘If there’s a show of hands, if there’s any girls in the room, can you just raise your hands?'” Morris claimed.
Virgo season is officially upon us, and as it turns out, not everyone is enjoying Beyoncé’s “Virgo’s Groove.”
One person born between August 23 and September 22 who isn’t a fan is Jennifer Lopez, who narrowed down potential dancers from her tour audition process based on astrological sign, according to Glee star Heather Morris.
“Jennifer Lopez held auditions for dancers for one of her tours,” Morris said this week on the Just Sign With Justin Martindale podcast. “She walked into the room and she said, ‘Thank you so much, you guys have worked so hard. Can you just raise your hand if there are girls in the room?'”
Morris, himself an Aquarius, wasn’t actually at that particular audition, but he heard “fun stories” from others. “She looked at them and she said, ‘Thank you so much for coming.’ And after a full day of auditioning for Jennifer Lopez, they had to leave,” she added. “A lot of times in dance auditions, you don’t get paid, you’re there from 10 in the morning and you’re auditioning until 6 in the evening.”
When Martindale asked if the former dancer’s story was true, she noted, “It’s hearsay but it’s true,” adding, “When one person says something, it can be true [but] when many people say something … it It’s like, ‘Oh, it’s done.’
Morris admitted that she may have “missed” the story and that it could be a different astrological sign. However, she said the Virgo “likes things planned and orderly” while the Marry Me star lives for “a bit of chaos in her life”.
Billboard has reached out to Lopez’s representatives for confirmation. While there’s no official proof that the story is true, it’s worth noting for fun that the “On the Floor” singer’s ex-husband, Marc Anthony, is a virgin. Her new husband, Ben Affleck, is a Leo, so that’s obvious.
