Los Angeles:

Singer-actor Jennifer Lopez has explained her return to romantic-comedy genre with the film “Second Act”.

In the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Lopez earned a name for herself after she starred in a string of rom-coms such as “Maid in Manhattan”, “The Wedding Planner”, “Monster-in-Law” and “Shall We Dance?”.

During her appearance on the “The Tonight Show”, the 49-year-old singer said she wanted to do a rom-com as she needed to have a “romantic look at life”.

“You need that funny, quirky look at life. That romantic look at life. I think things are tough sometimes and we need that escape,” Lopez said.

“Second Act”, directed Peter Segal, is about a woman who gets a chance to fulfil her career ambitions when a private finance firm is misled into believing that she’s an accomplished consultant and hire her to handle a major business deal.

The film also features Vanessa Hudgens, Leah Remini and Milo Ventimiglia.
