Jennifer Lopez knows how Leslie Rodgers feels.
The actress-singer, 43, who plays the character in the crime thriller Parker, tells PEOPLE that when she and Marc Anthony began divorce proceedings, she "felt like my whole world had fallen apart."
Lopez, who was just going through the breakup at the time she began filming the movie, says she related to her character.
"Leslie had just gone through her own divorce," she explains. "It's a bad time in her life."

Taylor Hackford was pleasantly surprised when he flipped open New York Magazine to find images of his wife, Helen Mirren, nude in a bathtub.
"She said she did a photo session with New York magazine," Hackford told PEOPLE at Tuesday's New York premiere of Love Ranch, which he directed. "I had no idea what they were until I saw them in the magazine."
The photos, which Hackford says he "loved," correspond with Mirren's role in Love Ranch as the madame of a legalized brothel.
Mirren's take on it is slightly different. "He loved them because he recognized me in them. That's the Helen that he knows," she tells PEOPLE of the shot which is "as naked from the neck up as it is from the neck down."
They do agree on the context, however.
