Jennifer Lopez: 'El Cantante' Was Oscar-Worthy

Jennifer Lopez: 'El Cantante' Was Oscar-Worthy

Jennifer Lopez shares her feelings on love, marriage and her work in the February 2010 issue of Latina magazine.

Here’s what the 40-year-old entertainer had to share (via USA Today):

On her marriage to Marc Anthony: “There’s a deep respect, admiration and love for each other. We honestly believe that we make each other better people…We force each other to be better, and I think in a relationship, that’s how it should be. You shouldn’t be with somebody if he makes you feel less than who you are.”

On past work with exes: “Exposed? Vulnerable? Do I cringe? [Laughs] No, no, it’s a literal snapshot. Every one of my albums is very spot-on with who I was at the time. … I can’t regret the things I did in the past, like putting somebody in a video that I was with. Who cares? I think people relate to me because they know that I’m not being phony.”

On Oscar-worthy work: “I feel like I had that [Oscar worthy role] in El Cantante, but I don’t even think the academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there, everything that could be great…..It’s all good. Things will happen when they’re supposed to happen. I have the utmost faith and no doubt that it will one day, when and if it’s supposed to. You can’t get all crazy twisted over it.”
