Bebe Rexha has revealed that she auditioned for a role in Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming movie Hustlers, but didn't get the part. "They hit me up and I was like, ‘OK, yeah, sure,'" Rexha explains in a new radio interview. "So I got an acting coach. She's awesome and she was teaching me how to act and stuff. It was really hard though because you have to be serious." Rexha goes on to explain that she auditioned for the part of a "Russian girl from New York,” but wasn’t upset about not getting it because her mother didn’t approve of her portraying a stripper. The film follows a group of strippers who steal thousands of dollars from their Wall Street clients. It will reportedly star Constace Wu, Cardi B, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, and Keke Palmer.
