Jennifer Lopez for W Magazine: J Lo is on the May Cover of W Magazine and Looks Better than Ever.
Few things have aged as graciously as the career of multi-talented entertainer Jennifer Lopez. With a career encompassing the bright lights of the big screen, our music players, and now our favorite primetime reality shows, Jenny from the block has proven that she has some serious staying power. The 46 year old cultural phenom, makes her latest appearance on the May cover of W Magazine and sits down with the magazine’s editors to talk about life as she sees it.
Lopez on Work and Exhaustion:
“When it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, This is too hard. When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness. It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger. But Marc is the father of my children [8-year-old twins], and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.”
Lopez on what she Would Be if she weren’t an Entertainer:
I would be a painter,” Lopez said. “I can’t paint. But I feel I could learn anything if I worked hard enough. Never say never!”
Lopez on her Public Persona After American Idol:
“It has been easier,” she said. “People may now think I’m ‘nice,’ but they still act surprised when I’m smart. It’s a man’s world, and, truly, people in a business setting do not value a woman as much as a man. I feel like I’m constantly having to prove myself. If a man does one thing well, people immediately say he’s a genius. Women have to do something remarkable over and over and over. And, even then, they get questions about their love life.” She shrugged. “People underestimate me. They always have, and maybe that’s for the best. It’s fun to prove them wrong.”
