Jennifer Lopez asked Cardi B to be in 'Hustlers' because she already knew so much about the "world" of strippers.
The 49-year-old actress-and-singer wanted the 26-year-old rapper to star in the upcoming drama - which follows a group of strippers who rob their wealthy Wall Street clients - due to her past as an exotic dancer and has insisted that there's "no shame" in "what your path is".
Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', she said: "I called her and asked her if she wanted to do the movie.
"She knew so much about this world already that hit home for her... There is no shame in what your path is to get to where you want to be."
"We think we know what everyone else's life feels like, but we don't."
