Playing Jennifer Lopez Says She 'Can Feel a Bit Chunky,' Admits Her Weight Fluctuates Up to 8 Pounds

The women of The View did not accept Jennifer Lopez's use of the word "chunky" when referring to her flawless physique.

The 46-year-old diva claimed that her weight "fluctuates," and that she goes "up and down about seven to eight pounds all the time."

When the daytime talk show shared a stunning selfie of Lopez in a crop top, the triple-threat star responded, "I was a little bit on the chunky side there, as you can see."

Whoopi Goldberg also teased Lopez about her comment. "Do you need us to show you what chunky looks like?" she quipped. "This a little bit on the chunky side, okay Jennifer? This is not the chunky side," Goldberg added, pointing to herself and then the selfie.

Lopez -- who is currently doing a residency in Las Vegas -- clarified that her weight does "fluctuate" based on her performance schedule. "When I'm doing the show, I go down, I get slim, and then when I stop, I'm eating -- and I get chunky," she added. "Not chunky, but you feel it for a dancer."

The "Booty" singer does have a rigorous workout schedule that keeps her from packing on too many pounds. "I love to run. I still enjoy it, but right now because of the Las Vegas show, dancing is a big part of my workout and cardio," she explained. "I do low impact cardio because it's so much dancing."
