The Maid in Manhattan movie actress said, "I thought it would be me by myself, be so fast, do the takes, don't have to worry about anybody else, you know, not remembering their lines."

She added, "Like, it's just me, do you know what I mean? So I'm there, and then it's like, okay, first day, 'You're falling through the planets!' It's, like, going crazy. 'Now your leg broke!'"

Lopez continued, "It was so high intensity every day, and without having another actor to give you half the energy, it's just all you, I was exhausted. I was exhausted. I would leave the 'Atlas' set limping."
