  • Quotes

    • Jennifer Lopez: People equate sexy with promiscuous. They think that because I'm shaped this way, I must be scandalous - like running around and bringing men into my hotel room. But it's just the opposite.

    • Jennifer Lopez: (revealing she would consider sending her twins to a Scientology school) I wouldn't mind. Because I know that the technologies that they have are very helpful ... It's all about communication. I do know so many great people who choose it as a lifestyle and really follow it and it is their religion ... I just wish that people wouldn't judge it without knowing what it is.

    • Jennifer Lopez: (on her perfume) The smell of a baby's head intrigues me right now. But no babies went into that bottle. None!

    • Jennifer Lopez: Marc [Anthony] and I are good partners. We love each other. We want to be the best person we can be for each other. And we work on that. That's what a real relationship is about to me.

    • Jennifer Lopez: (revealing in May 2007, that she was dropping the name J.Lo) I'm not J.Lo any more. That's all gone with all the ridiculous stories about tantrums and Egyptian sheets. That's all my past. I'm Jennifer Lopez. I think, as a woman, I've finally grown more sure of who I am. It does seem ironic that it has taken me more than a decade to basically get back to who I am. I am incredibly proud of my culture and I think I am a woman who is totally defined by my culture. My temperament, my body shape, the way I am is all very much Puerto Rican.

    • Jennifer Lopez: People assume I'm out there having this great life, but money doesn't erase the pain, ... When you're young you barrel through life, making choices without thinking of repercussions. A few years down the line, you wake up in a certain place and wonder how the hell you got there.

    • Jennifer Lopez: I could serve coffee using my rear as a ledge.

    • Jennifer Lopez: There are certain people that are marked for death. I have my little list of those that treated me unfairly.

    • Jennifer Lopez: Beauty is only skin deep. I think what's really important is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit. Somebody said to me not too long ago, 'Until you're twenty, you have the face you are born with, and after that you have the face you deserve', and I really loved that - the idea that you wear who you are on your face.

  • I hate this woman!

    1.0
    I hate her as an actress, a singer and a person. She's a genuine snob with no redeeming qualities. I mean the woman has no talent and she's so unbelievably stuck up that I want to gag whenever I see her in shows etc. Plus she's not that pretty either but seems to think she is. I guess I got really turned off though by her fur wearing. I hate anyone that wears fur but the other stuff just piles on and makes her absolutely detestable. She's an overly materialistic Diva bitch and that's all.moreless
