Something tells us this VOGUE interview wasn’t the “Smartest” idea. Jennifer Lopez covers the April issue and inside you get a pretty good picture of J.Lo and the three main men in her life (soon to be ex Marc Anthony, manager Benny Medina and new boo Casper Smart). Check out the excerpts and photos below:
On Her Relationship With Marc Anthony:
Anthony peeks his head into the dressing room with his name on it and says, “Where is she?” He eyes the door across the hall and says to no one in particular, “She in here?” He puts his ear to the door and then gently raps on it with his knuckle. “Security,” he says with a devilish smirk, and then nothing. So he knocks harder. “Security!” When he hears that telltale giggle, a big grin spreads across his face, and he opens the door and slips inside.
Lopez and Anthony are here today on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank for a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote their new Latin talent show, ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen, which will premiere on Fox in early March. Lest you think it’s all smiles for the cameras but war behind the scenes, the two spend the next hour huddled in her dressing room, still friends after all these months. Indeed, in one of the clips from ¡Q’Viva! that they share with Ellen, the two of them bicker like, well, an old married couple, and Lopez cracks that they are the new Sonny and Cher, a knowing joke that grows more apt the further it sinks in.
Seven years ago, at Lopez’s Vogue shoot, I noticed that Anthony hung around the set both days, drinking cans of beer and chain-smoking Newports. Lopez is a famous teetotaler. How is this going to work? I thought. When I mention this to her, she cracks up. “He’s still doing it! Look, we are total opposites that way. I’m used to that from growing up where I did. The men kind of drink beer and smoke cigarettes, and women kind of like . . . don’t. But those things were not the issue so much. It became about something else. Without going into detail . . . it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. We’re still friends—and we’re parents. But it’s going to take time.” She pauses. “It’s tough. But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we’re handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids. What you saw today, on Ellen, it’s very dignified and trying to be above all the emotions and pain that come along with a divorce and a family breaking apart. This is grown-up stuff. It’s real, serious, grown-up stuff.”
Sounds like it’s not as bad as we thought, but it still ain’t all good…
