Jennifer Lopez plays a woman with fertility issues who turns to adoption in her new film "What to Expect When You're Expecting," and she told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson on Friday it changed her own outlook on adopting.

"I don't know," Jennifer said, when Shaun asked if adoption would ever be in the cards.

PLAY IT NOW: Would Jennifer Lopez Ever Consider Adopting A Child?

"Before this movie, it wasn't something that had occurred to me. But after this movie, yes, I could see myself definitely doing it and being open to it for sure," she continued. "You know what I mean? Whereas, before I never thought about it really."

In the film, Jennifer plays Holly, opposite Rodrigo Santoro's Alex, as the couple who deals with multiple relationship issues as they engage in the adoption process.

Working with the twins, who play their adopted children in the film, was a moving experience for the actress, whose own twins --- Max and Emme - were barely 3 when she shot the project.

"The babies were still, I mean, they were 3 at the time when we were doing the movie, so the memories were fresh in my head of being pregnant, and then I didn't have to do it and I had to do something totally... different than I had ever experienced," Jennifer told Shaun.

"But it was funny, the adoption thing. When I held the baby for the first time -- our baby in the movie, and they were twins, they were two little twin Ethiopian boys, who, their parents went through a similar thing, and actually have adopted before, and so we got to talk to them a lot about it too. But when you hold that baby, you can really see how easy it is to just love another child that is not yours," Jennifer said. "Really, such a simple thing."
