Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo's director tells her to tone it down

Jennifer Lopez was constantly scolded by her What To Expect When You're Expecting director Kirk Jones because she couldn't keep her hands off her onscreen husband Rodrigo Santoro.

The movie couple play expectant parents in the romantic comedy, but Lopez admits their portrayal of a loving husband and wife was a little too much for conservative Jones to bear - and he regularly asked them to tone down their public displays of affection (PDA).

She told WENN: "I was the envy of the cast. I had Rodrigo Santoro to be my husband. We were an affectionate couple and our very English director Kirk kept telling us to stop.

"I think he was uncomfortable with the PDA. He was like, 'I don't think you guys have to hug and kiss that much!' We were like, 'No, we're Latino and very affectionate.'

"He was like, 'No, I think we can lay off on that a little bit.' His direction for us was stop touching each other!"
Lopez shot the film just weeks after her split from real-life husband Marc Anthony last summer.
