Jennifer Lopez has lived through everything from dress scandals to the reviews for “Gigli,” but she doesn’t regret a minute of it.
Of course, as she told Glamour magazine in their September issue, she’s had some "ups and downs" like everyone else, including "super highs and some really low lows.” But she added, “I’ve been so blessed that I could never say, ‘I wish this didn’t happen.’ It’s part of who I am. There’s nothing in my life that’s so ‘ugh.’"
Of course, there are some memories that may make her cringe, “but not where I’m worried about [Max and Emme] finding out,” she said. “I’ll tell them myself. No secrets from them.”
Lopez, 41, had twins Max and Emme in 2008 with husband Marc Anthony, whom she married in 2004.
Anthony, she said, is “a passionate person, and he’s the same way with his kids, and I love it. When it comes to all his kids, he’s mush, whatever they want.”
He's probably mush when it comes to what Lopez wants as well – the actress said she doesn’t slack off in the glamour department just because she happens to be at home.
“I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy in my life," Lopez said, adding that yes, she is a bit like the high-fashion photo shoots readers see in magazines. "Do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.”
It’s all about maintaining a certain state of mind, Lopez told Glamour – and the same theory applies to how to handle feelings of doubt.
“If you feel in your mind you can do it, you can do it. You cannot doubt yourself. Doubt is a killer," she said. " You just have to know who you are and what you stand for. You can have a great mentor, a great partner, a great love in your life who gives you confidence and makes you feel great about yourself. And that’s all wonderful, but at the end of the day, if you don’t believe it, all of that means nothing.”
Well, we guess we know how she feels about her qualifications to be an "Idol" judge...
