Ugh. THAT FACE!!!
Our favorite gal, Jennifer Lopez, is the cover star for Harper’s Bazaar‘s April 2018 issue! Check out what the 48-year-old shared with the mag below about her relationship with retired MLB star Alex Rodriguez and more!
On the marriage talk surrounding her relationship with Alex Rodriguez: “I do believe in marriage, and I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now. It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t. We both entered the public eye in our early 20s and overachieved right from the start. And that affects every dynamic in your life, from your family to your work to your relationships. We have a similar makeup.”
On how her and Alex differ in their relationship: “He sports-metaphors me to death, and now I do it to everyone else. Baseball is just like life. All you want to do is hit a home run.”
On her younger years: “I spent a lot of time being half happy and half not happy. I know who I am and what I want. I also know my strengths and weaknesses. It took me a long time to get to a point where I could say something nice about myself. I’m glad I can do that now.”
On her work ethic: “My instinct is to fill every single minute of my life with work, so I’ve had to learn balance. When you take on too much, that can be the enemy of great.” Her motivation comes from never being “one of those media darlings. I didn’t get kissed into this business. I’m from the Bronx. I had to find my way, so I’ve always felt like I had to prove myself. Maybe that’s a good drive to have. I never settle for mediocre.”
