J.Lo Talks Marc Anthony In 1st Post-Split Interview

jlo vanity fair J.Lo Talks Marc Anthony In 1st Post Split Interview

As with all things showbiz, there’s a thin line between the private and public. Just ask Jennifer Lopez.

The 42 year old diva has been tabloid fodder for most of her career; a trend which looks to continue following the announcement that she’s divorcing husband Marc Anthony.

Perhaps in a bid to limit such speculative coverage, the mother of twins sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss the split, her take on love, and plans moving forward.

Quotes after the jump…

On Marc Anthony:

“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

On walking away from a bad relationship:

“I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love. It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”

On love:

“Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love. It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive—determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

    I can’t believe the ignorance out there of ppl sayin this divorce is fake (and this isn’t coming from a non fan of her music in the least bit I like to see her acting more).. they hav two children together who if u kno anything about jlo she would die for and would never do anything to mess up their world .. ppl close to them has said this isn’t a surprise they hav been having problems for years as mark is more traditional in marriage (with the husband bein head of the household) and she’s more modern (woman who does stuff for herself).. I kno ppl love controversy and scandal but not everything has an alterior motive as jlo said sometimes love jus doesn’t work out so u move on and I wish her the best

    That was quick ! Wasn’t expecting her to discuss her situation this soon after the split. I thought that these articles were written months in advance but I guess not.

    I love Jennifer and what she said was really sincere and honest.I’m glad she didn’t just churn out the generic showbiz answers and talked about it from her heart and I can understand why they would break up, judging from what she said.Now that she’s single, she can truly be herself.

    WOW!! So many ignorant people on here!! If you don’t like someone that you don’t eve know that your choice, but to make comments about their choices in life and their heartache is truly ignorant…..you don’t have any clue about their private lives, so putting your two cents in does not make sense. Divorce is difficult and I know many people that have had divorce, and many more than 1….The kind of people that come one these website to judge other people and make comments about what they don’t know anything about is pure…IGNORANCE!!! God bless JLo and the twins!!

    Box office hits such as Money Train, Anaconda, Antz
    1st Latina with a Loreal contract, 1st Latina to be paid 1 million for a film had signed to Sony way before she got with Puff, it was he that was desperate for her to be in his Been Around the World Video
    DIDDY WAS LOOKING FOR THE CROSSOVER HOLLYWOOD/MAINSTREAM DREAM

    When she was with Ben she already was a successful actress, The Cell, The Wedding Planner debuted at number 1, other hits inlcuded Angel Eyes and Enough, her first flop film was Gigli, Ben was coming off the flop that was Pearl Harbour and had a drinking problem-FACT. Ben has never BEEN HOT

    Marc has had an obsession with Jlo since the 90s, all his songs that he wrote was about her, he went after her

    @ Queen No you saw her as a ho, because it takes one to no one b**** , now take a seat, typical Bey stan on another artists post chatting s***

    Excuse me what songs/hit has Diddy produced for JLO, Feelin So Good and thats it, Did he produce I f You Have My Love, Waiting For Tonight and all the other hits off her 1st album NO
    The executive produers was herself and Cory Rooney, b**** take a seat
    Puffy did not introduce her to s*** but guns and getting arrested
    What other hits did he produce for her besides the original version of I REAL , which she co wrote with Cory Rooney? NONE!

    Marc was in Love with Jlo you don’t no nothing about Latin culture, Spanish media will tell you how much he was in love with Jlo, she even featured in one his Spanish videos, but you wouldn’t know that would you

    Diidy satys being in love with Jlo, Yes thats why Diddy is trying to turn Cassie into her, whos I need a Girl about, b**** sit the f*** down
    Ben Affelck pit oou an advert for her in Variety saying how much he loved working with her

    @ Kat De LunaLove? is at 900k worldwide how many records has Kat Deluna sold?
    On The Floor is at 7 million worldwide more than Kats whole pathetic excuse of a career

    Yes Jen can sing, it may not be strong but she can sing, she does not go around slapping her name to songs she did not write.

    Last time I checked Kat delusional Pig face did not create the Lambada, b**** BYE
    JLOS a great dancer and performer, don’t be mad she can do all of that and still be a fashion icon

    Miss Lopez thank you for sharing it with us.
    It inspires many women that might have been or could be in the same predicament as you.
    No one needs to know the specifics of your life to understand the interview you gave to Vanity Fair.

    I can’t wait for her movie “What To Expect When You’re expecting”. Some pictures from the shooting have already emerged online. It has added more to my curiosity, to the point where it drove me to purchasing the critically-acclaimed book.

    For “JLOVE?” all the singles released have been playing on the radio non-stop. Just yesterday, they were playing “On The Floor” and “I’m Into You” on different stations simultaneously and many times.

    Like my fellow Jloration <3 Jlovers, I still enjoy "On The Floor" and "I'm Into You" :)

    Her ego is out of control! She always insinuates the other person is to blame and she to walk away. How about Not getting married!! Marruage takes work and only because you’re in love does not mean you have to walk down the aisle. She treats marriage like a joke and she is not a classy lady. Keep your mouth shut and keep your stupid advice on love because you are the last person to give love advice. She has a pretty face, but a cold empty heart that no one will ever fill because no one will ever satisfy Jlo’s ego!

    To all those who are judging her,only God can judge.We don’t know what happen behind doors.I truly believe that she really love him,but sometimes situations in a marriage makes you grow out of love.I also truly believe that you need God,in your life so that he can help you keep your marriage together.Please don’t judge her,just pray for her.i’m not taking her side,just don’t like that people are judging her.Our job is to show love not judge,only God can judge.I just pray that she find true love,if she really decided not to go back with him.please live me a comment in my e-mail if you agree with me.
