Jennifer Lopez on Life Today: 'Everything Isn't Perfect,' But 'I'm Still Optimistic & Hopeful'

Jennifer Lopez looks stunning on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s February 2019 issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old superstar had to share for the mag…

On media scrutiny: “You’re trying to do your best and people are putting you down, or trying to make believe you’re not a nice person, or you’re a diva. I’m always like, ‘Who are you talking about?’”

On being put in a box early in her career: “From early on in my career, I felt like people wanted to put me in a box. You will play these sorts of roles, do this type of thing. Or you will only act. You cannot sing and act at the same time. I felt very confined by that because I knew I was going to do different things. I was at least going to try!”

On her life today: “I’ve got two amazing kids and a great boyfriend. I don’t have everything figured out, and everything isn’t perfect. But I feel very proud that with all the things I’ve gone through in my personal life, I’m still optimistic and hopeful.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing Gucci on the cover.
