Jennifer Lopez describes AI as 'really scary' and addresses 'stealing faces'

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez, who stars as Atlas Shepherd, a data analyst who must rely on AI to save Earth from an evil robot in the Netflix science fiction action film Atlas, shared her thoughts on AI during the film’s Los Angeles premiere.

She expressed concerns about AI, stating the film "does a good job of showing how AI could go incredibly wrong," reported Variety.

"I think this movie does a good job of showing how AI could go incredibly wrong, and this is how it could go really right," said Lopez. She highlighted her personal experiences with AI exploitation, mentioning ads that used manipulated photos of her face to promote skincare products she has no affiliation with, featuring her face covered in "wrinkles."

"It’s really scary," Lopez emphasized, adding, "Right away we had them stealing our faces. So, yes, [AI] is really scary." She further explained, "I think you should be respectful of AI. We have to be open to all possibilities. These movies that are talking about AI — especially this one — do a really good job of showing both sides."

Sterling K. Brown, who plays a military officer battling alongside Atlas in the film, praised Lopez’s dedication and work ethic. "Moguls be moguling," he remarked. "She was talking earlier today how she has brought down her level of commitments. I would have marveled to see her at full tilt, because it looked like it was full tilt when we were together. There was always something happening."

Brown shared insights into their on-set interactions, especially during intense scenes where their characters were left beaten and bruised by the villains. "We had nice little side conversations between takes," Brown said. "I asked her about being a Fly Girl [on In Living Color]. She had a few good Rosie Perez stories."

Atlas is now streaming on Netflix.
