LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jennifer Lopez has opened up on her upcoming sci-fi movie ‘Atlas.’

The singer-actress attended the LA premiere of her new movie in which she plays the titular character of Atlas Shepherd.

“A brilliant but misanthropic data analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence,” reads the film's synopsis.

In the movie, Lopez's character is on a “mission to capture a renegade robot with whom she shares a mysterious past. The only hope of saving the future of humanity from AI is to trust it.”

Jennifer Lopez says she relates to her character in 'Atlas'

Comparing herself with the character in the film, Lopez said she would "always" "infuse a little bit" of herself into the character while playing Atlas’ character.

"We are so different because she's like ... doesn't wear any of her emotions. She's so closed off and I am too much emotion sometimes," Lopez told People.

"But at the same time we are both very strong and sure of what they feel," the musician added on Monday, May 20.

"At times. She was very sure. She was like, 'This is what's happening, please listen to me. Please tell me.' And felt very misunderstood at times. I can also relate to that a bit," she continued.

When asked how she goes about portraying creative characters, Lopez explained, "I'm very sure of what I want and sometimes I'm not."

"Sometimes I'm very doubtful of myself, but I follow my instincts more than anything and I find that when I go against that, is when I go wrong," she said.


Who else was present at the 'Atlas' premiere in LA?

Lopez’s co-stars were also present at the premiere which included Simu Liu and Sterling K Brown at the Egyptian Theatre.

Amid her split rumors with husband Ben Affleck, the singer was pictured wearing her wedding ring on the red carpet. The ‘Air’ star is presently shooting for his upcoming flick ‘The Accountant 2.’

A source earlier told PageSix that the actor feels like the last two years have been a "fever dream" and believes that their marriage is doomed.

"Affleck feels a sense of regret about the whirlwind nature of their relationship," revealed an insider.

"If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would," the source shared, adding that Affleck has "come to his senses" and sees no future of their marriage.
