Jennifer Lopez once broke down in tears in front of director Oliver Stone in an attempt to avoid having to film a raunchy sex scene.

Lopez was terrified of shooting a love-making sequence, in which she appears topless, with co-star Sean Penn in Stone's 1997 movie U-TURN.

But, despite her theatrical protest, Lopez still ended up having to endure the uncomfortable moment.

She says, "Urgh. Yeah, the sex scenes were bad. It was hard being the only woman on set with those strong men.

"I just started crying and fighting. But Oliver was like, 'Take off your top.'"

Last week (ends08OCT04) Lopez admitted her first on-screen sex scene in 1995 film MONEY TRAIN with Wesley Snipes was "horrible".
