Jennifer Lopez has received praise for her acting skills - from screen veteran Robert Redford.

Redford stars alongside J.LO in the upcoming movie AN UNFINISHED LIFE, and he chose to ignore all of the criticism she received alongside former fiance Ben Affleck for 2003's flop Gigli to truly appreciate her talents.

He says, "She's a very good actress, let me tell you something. What, are they going to blame her for that film? I didn't pay any attention to that.

"All I know is what I saw when I worked with her. She's a natural talent. She is a talented actor, and she's a talent, period. Fortunately, that's what I connected with."
