Jennifer Lopez Covers 'Marie Claire UK' June 2010
Here’s what the 40-year-old entertainer had to share:
On the media’s fascination with her curvy body: “I was always very comfortable with who I was. Confident. I’ve never looked at [my body] in a negative way. Just like anybody I try to watch what I eat – there’s no big science to it, which is what sucks. One of the good tricks is to have a goal – for me it may be getting in shape for a video shoot. The other is portion control. I love to eat everything and you pretty much can – a little piece of something fattening is not going to kill you. It’s when you eat the whole box that it’s going to kill you. If you can learn to not eat till your stomach feels full and gross, then you can pretty much control your life in that area.’
On whether she’d consider single motherhood if she hadn’t found a husband: “For me, I always had the fairy tale in my head where you get married, have kids and do all that kind of stuff. But I also think it’s a wonderful thing for women who haven’t had babies and get to a point in their lives and have that option. As a woman, I think it’s the best thing that can ever happen to you.”
On keeping up with her exes: “Would I see a movie of Ben’s? Sure! Why not? I haven’t seen him or talked to him in a while – our lives went in two very different directions. But I always wish him the best and I always thought he was a great person. And Sean – I’ve run into him once or twice, with Marc, and it’s always very friendly. He asks about the twins because he has twins too. Again, I always wish him the best.’
