Transcript for 'Hustlers' star Keke Palmer loved working with J.Lo
She's with us every day on "Strahan, Sara & keke" but right now we're going to turn the stables on her and talk about her role in a new movie, "Hustlers." Hey, keke. How are you doing? Hey, long time no see. So interesting to be on this side of it with you. I can't wait to grill you. You ready. Yes. Here we go. We both have played strippers in movies now. Did you know that. Yes, I did. I did. I'm curious, what was the hardest part for you. The hardest part really wasn't the stripping part. I think I was more in the movie thinking about, you know, improving, the director and writer was very encouraging so I wanted to make sure I was giving all I had. For me it was the stripping part. You're a big J. Lo fan. Big Jennifer Lopez fan from a long time ago. And now that you've had a chance to work with her, was there something you learned about her that was unexpected. I don't say it's unexpected. I think it's what you would expect is that she's a boss. With this film she was a part of putting it together. She is a producer. She is a mom. She's a fiancee. She is an actress so seeing her wear all those different hats and things intertwined was impressive. For you how did you study for this role? Did cardi B give you some advice? How did you learn about this? I would have happily taken advice from my girl cardi but every girl in the room is doing the same thing. You're trying to get that twerk on, that vibe on. I've had a lot of experience in my bedroom by myself and I was ready to, you know, show them what I got. I said, okay. My time to shine. Let me get out there. The fact that you said every girl in her bedroom I'm going to knock on my daughter's room, keep this door open. Your character's maim is Mercedes. I'm interested if you had to give yourself a stripper name what would it be? It would be something sweet like baby girl or baby girl. Coming to the stage, baby girl. Okay, all right. What weary going to do is welcome a clip of "Hustlers." Here we go. You know what it's like, don't you? He looks like Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise. No. Your smile. It's really good. Yes. More sunny. I know. Here we go. Yours? No. Okay. All right. Shots, ladies. Yes. You guys are sisters. Yes, same dad, different mom. Sister. To sisters. To sisters. All right, keke, thank you for joining us. See you this afternoon. Everyone will see keke this afternoon. "Hustlers" hits theaters on September the 13th.
