Jennifer Lopez is opening up about her relationship with ex-husband Marc Anthony and revealing why she is open to marrying again.
In an interview with W magazine, Lopez discussed the "personal failures" she's faced, revealing that "when [her] 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," Lopez said.
Lopez, 46, and Anthony, 47, wed in June 2004 and split in 2012 after nearly eight years of marriage. The "Ain't Your Mama" singer admitted that even though she gave their relationship all she had, she knew that it wasn't enough to make the marriage last.
“I hung in there for seven years,” Lopez said. “I knew very quickly that it wasn’t the right thing.”
Lopez noted that she and Anthony "work to make things right" for the sake of their kids, 8-year-old twins Max and Emme.
"Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away," Lopez said. "So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.”
Lopez, who has been married three times, also spoke about her current boyfriend, dancer Casper Smart, and why she is not taking marriage off the table just yet.
“We got together and broke up and are now together again," Lopez said of 29-year-old Smart. "I still think about getting married and having that long life with someone."
"I love the movie 'The Notebook,'" she continued. "A dream of mine is to grow old with someone."
There are so many things we'll miss about American Idol, but at the top of our list is having Jennifer Lopez on our TVs every week.
The pop diva joined the singing competition during the 10th season and only sat out one season since then -- the infamous Mariah Carey-Nicki Minaj cycle. As the show comes to an end, we're looking back on J.Lo's the best Idol moments, from chic ensembles to emotional moments to epic performances.
This blinged-out red number that might be the hottest thing J.Lo ever wore.
This glittery gold mini that's only out-fierced by J.Lo's fiiiiiiiiiiierce pose.
Every time she danced in her judge's chair.
And every single time she whipped her hair.
This sexy little black dress that put all other little black dresses to shame.
Only to turn around and also pull off this adorably school girlish frock.
The adorable faces she makes, best of all whenever she stuck her tongue out at whomever.
This leather look that accents Jenny from the Block's best ass...ets.
And whatever is happening here.
Viva la J.Lo! We'll miss American Idol and we'll miss you.
