J’lo’s cover shoot for W Magazine has been unveiled and she is looking seriously fierce!
The 46 year-old star posed for a variety of stunning shots, the most striking one being the image of her wearing the black tulle bespoke gown by Giambattista Valli Couture. (How fab is her hair style and makeup? So elegant!)
During an interview with the magazine, JLo opened up about her divorce from Marc Anthony revealing that she initially found it difficult to be amicable with her ex after they went their separate ways.
“When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness. It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger. But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.”
When probed about her love life, the singer/actress also revealed that she and 29 year old Casper Smart are dating again!
She told the interviewer,
“We got together and broke up and are now together again. I still think about getting married and having that long life with someone. I love the movie The Notebook. A dream of mine is to grow old with someone.”
Now that she has finished up with American Idol, JLo is concentrating on her TV shwo Shades of Blue, which has just been signed for a second run, her new single Ain’t Your Mama, and her Las Vegas residency which will be kicking off next month and running until July.
During the interview, JLo also gave an insight into her work ethic and drive.
“People may now think I’m ‘nice,’ but they still act surprised when I’m smart. It’s a man’s world, and truly, people in a business setting do not value a woman as much as a man. I feel like I’m constantly having to prove myself. If a man does one thing well, people immediately say he’s a genius. Women have to do something remarkable over and over and over. People underestimate me. They always have, and maybe that’s for the best. It’s fun to prove them wrong.”
