Jennifer Lopez is the cover girl for Glamour UK magazine’s March 2014 issue.
Inside the issue, the 44 year old mom of two dished on liking a little chaos in her relationship, dating a younger man and how she stays fit.
On liking a little chaos in her relationship:
It’s about finding a relationship that has enough good stuff to outweigh the bad, because nobody’s perfect right?,” she told Glamour UK. “But without the spark that conflict brings, life would be so boring. I want a bit of chaos in a relationship, but I also want a bit of safety and order.
On needing balance and respect in her relationship:
It’s taken me a long to get to this place, but I’ve learned that I don’t ever want to go against my own integrity in a relationship,” she said. “If something doesn’t feel right to me or makes me feel uncomfortable, I don’t want to go along with it – and sometimes as women we do that. But I won’t accept it anymore.
On staying in shape:
Some people find it comforting to sit down and eat a whole pint of Häagen-Dazs, but honestly that would make me throw up.
Mentally, I’m always thinking about it,” she said. “I’m OK looking this way, but at the same time that very ambitious, determined girl inside me is like, ‘Come on, let’s be in the best shape ever and really show everybody.’ Then the other side of me thinks: ‘Let’s just relax on the beach chair.’
On balancing her career as a single mom:
I make thousands of decisions a week – a day, even – but one decision about them I will belabor for a week,” she revealed. “Still all I can really do is give them a good sense of themselves. I can’t control how people perceive them, but I can help them to become whole, happy, healthy human beings.
