Jennifer Lopez is a changed woman…no longer is she the party girl she used to be! Remember when she dated Diddy and got arrested…those days are long gone. Now is is a grownup with a husband and kids!
“I can’t help but be a different person now that I’ve had kids. That really does change your whole perspective on life for the better,” the singer-actress, 40, tells the May issue of Redbook.
“I definitely feel like I’ve grown up,” continues Lopez, who next stars in The Back-Up Plan (in theaters April 23) and will release her album, Love, this summer. “So, I guess in a way, parts of me are going to be different, but in general I’m still the same girl from the Bronx who had big dreams.”
“I always wanted to be great at what I did — that’s what drove me. If I got rejected, I wouldn’t take it personally,” Lopez continues. “I was like, Make them a fan and they’ll bring you back in for something else.
“I never thought about money or fame, and I never really thought that would happen to me,” she goes on. “All that was just a by-product.”
Lopez also says her husband of five years, Marc Anthony, is The One.
“I think you can love many different people, but that’s different from what makes a great partner in life, which Marc is for me… He inspires me to be better at everything — a better person, mom, singer, performer, friend, and wife,” she says.
