The Psychology of Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is a modern-day Hollywood icon.
Her latest movie, Hustlers, has been killing it at the box office, so we were inspired to have a discussion about the psychology of Jennifer Lopez, and her long and impressive career in Hollywood.
As wrong as it is, at 50 years old, most Hollywood actresses struggle to find roles, lose relevance, or remain engaged with an ever-changing younger demographic. Not J.Lo.
On today’s episode, we’re discussing how J.Lo has remained relevant, and how she’s remained a Hollywood powerhouse for decades.

Every week our panel of Shrinks breaks down trending topics of psychology in the news that we call Being Human.
Research shows that as men age they are viewed more valuable and competent in the workplace. Women lose their credibility with every new wrinkle. The double whammy hits as we begin to show any visible signs of aging.
In a study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, the authors suggest two possible reasons why older female job seekers face more age discrimination than males: Age discrimination laws do less to protect older women who may suffer from both age and sex discrimination and, based on earlier research, they say ‘physical appearance matters more for women’ since ‘age detracts more from physical appearance for women than for men.’
Our panel of Shrinks breaks down their thoughts on these findings.
