Jennifer Lopez opened up to Vanity Fair for the first time since she announced she and Marc Anthony were splitting.
The mother of two had nothing but good things to say about her husband, the father of her children.
“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer… We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic — and we did.
He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”
The actress and singer is featured in the September issue of the magazine.
“I really worked hard at [the marriage]. We both did… Sometimes it doesn’t work — and that’s sad,” she said.
Although the American Idol judge must obviously be upset that her marriage to Anthony didn’t last, she remains hopeful about the future and taking care of her children.
“I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love… It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive — determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”
