Jennifer Lopez talks new tough role in "Parker"

Following her departure from "American Idol," Jennifer Lopez is keeping busy with new film roles. The 43-year-old singer/actress has been on the road recently promoting her latest project, "Parker," an action thriller co-starring Jason Statham.

Lopez spoke to Wednesday at New York's Museum of Modern Art before a special screening of "Parker," and she told us that this isn't your standard explosion-heavy action flick.

"It has different dimensions to it," Lopez said of "Parker," which is based on Donald E. Westlake's (pen name Richard Stark) series of popular crime novels.

Lopez told us that much of the credit for the film's depth belongs to one specific person. Find out who that is by watching our interview with Lopez above.
