  • Quotes

    • Jennifer: Part of my business is about being in shape and looking good. You can't lie to yourself about it. But I'm not the monster I used to be in the exercise department. You get past your 20s, you've got kids... you're kind of unmotivated. You want to be healthy and look good, but you want to do the least amount to maintain that.

    • Jennifer: I'm trying to get the focus back on what I do as an artist, not what I do at home.

    • Jennifer: I didn't expect it to happen like this, wrapping one film and flying out to do a new one the next day. But I'm fresh enough and ambitious enough to stay up all night for the sake of a job. I'm not gonna take it easy. I want to do so much more when I'm getting these great opportunities.

    • Jennifer: Beauty is only skin deep. I think what's really important is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit.

    • Jennifer: My mom always told me that if you work hard, you can achieve anything. And it's true. It's one of the truest things ever.

    • Jennifer: If you focus on the money, you're not going to get anywhere. You can want to be successful, but at the end of the day, if money is your motivation, if that's how shallow your outlook is on life, then you're going to be such an empty person. Because there's nothing driving you from the inside -- there's no passion...

    • Jennifer: I only do what my gut tells me to. I think it's smart to listen to other people's advice, but at the end of the day, you're the only one who can tell you what's right for you.

    • Jennifer: I've always had a huge fear of dying or becoming ill. The thing I'm most afraid of, though, is being alone, which I think a lot of performers fear. It's why we seek the limelight - so we're not alone, were adored. Were loved, so people want to be around us. The fear of being alone drives my life.

    • Jennifer: We've all had a love of our life and failed love affairs. I'm just the biggest romantic - it's really sad. I tell people that, but nobody listens.

    • Jennifer: (on feeling insecure) When I'm not prepared, which is almost never.

    • Jennifer: I was always a singer and a dancer, and I always wanted to be an actress. For me, it's all just one thing.

    • Jennifer: (on what she learned from her mother) I thought she'd offer me some sympathy. Instead, she said, "Don't you ever call me crying again! You wanted to be in this business, so you better toughen up!". And I did

    • Jennifer: I've made a ton of mistakes, but you need the messy stuff; you learn from it.

    • Jennifer: I keep dancing. I may not be getting all the steps right, yet, but I'm dancing my heart out!

    • Jennifer: It has always bugged me that people would try to think that there's a "next Selena." It's like saying there's another James Dean or Marilyn Monroe. People like that don't come along every day. There is never going to be another Selena.

    • 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.
