London: Jennifer Lopez told at the London premiere of her new movie `The Back-Up Plan` how she pigged out and broke wind in the film to show what being pregnant is really like.

The singer and actress plays a successful career woman who is artificially inseminated only to meet the love of her life on the same day in the romantic comedy.

"There`s a couple of scenes in the movie where I`m eating and pigging out and they didn`t put them in the first cut -- I was like `Listen guys, this is extremely important for women`," said Lopez at the premiere in Leicester Square.

"They need to see me pigging out. This is what happens when you get pregnant. You get really sleepy. You get really hungry. You get gas."

The 40-year-old mother-of-two, who showed off her famous curves in a black leather dress, warmly greeted fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures.
