Jennifer Lopez to 'Self': 'All the Old Clichés About Women Need to Be Undone'

Jennifer Lopez puts her fabulous figure on display for Self magazine’s January 2015 issue, on newsstands 23.

Here’s what the 45-year-old superstar had to share with the mag:

On her high profile break-ups: “When you have that much pain, you have to anesthetize yourself in some ways. People do different things. Some go out and party and sleep around, but that’s just not my way. I found the comfort in someone else. That’s called being a love addict. When I face myself, I go, You have a fear of really being on your own. So you know what? That’s what we’re gonna do right now. But it took me years to get there. So first it was learning to love myself. And then it was about facing my fears.”

On dating younger men: “All the old clichés about women need to be undone. Enough already. We’re in the other position now. We are desirable older, we can date younger guys and it’s not this big taboo. Men have been doing this for years, and it’s no big deal. Enough with the clichés about women. We can date younger guys…it’s no big deal.”

On her many projects: “I want to prove to everyone that I can do everything and be a superwoman. But I have to take time for myself.”
