Jennifer Lopez is the February/March 2015 cover girl of Complex Magazine and last month Lopez invited Complex to her L.A. home for the cover shoot/interview, the pictures were shot by Steven Gomillion while she sat poolside. Find excerpts from the interview below;
On how divorce affected her especially since her parents stayed together for more than 30 years: ”When my first marriage didn’t work out, my second marriage didn’t work out, and I was with Marc [Anthony] and I was trying to make it work, and that didn’t work out, it was devastating. Each time I felt like such a failure, from what I’d been taught. They’re painful in the moment, but now I see myself as a brave warrior princess who keeps going no matter what.”
On a comment she made in 2001 in a Chicago Tribune article; “Deep down I am a romantic, I believe in the whole fairy tale’How she feels about that statement now: ”Yeah. I’m still the same.”
On people who believe that things like the hacking scandal happening is a trade-off for being rich and famous: ”When you become rich and famous, you don’t have feelings anymore?! That’s what it is. OK! C’mon. It’s not about having money in the bank. You can have all the money in the world and it doesn’t mean you’re a happy person. Money doesn’t solve problems. It makes some things easier but it just gives you a different set of problems.”
On why beautiful women still feel insecure; ”It’s not just beautiful women. It’s all women. And it’s all men, too. It’s everyone. Nobody looks in the mirror and goes, “That person is so perfect!” It’s just the nature of a human being that they have insecurities.”
On her comment in Movieline magazine: “The thing I’m most afraid of is being alone, it’s why I seek the limelight”: ”I’ve changed a lot since then, I was afraid to be alone but now as I’ve grown and matured, you realize that being alone is liberating.”
