Jennifer Lopez, 41, may have just been named People magazine’s most beautiful woman in the world but this mom of two says she feels most happiest at home, make-up free, with husband and singer, Marc Anthony, and their 3 year old twins Max and Emme.
“That’s when I’m my happiest, she says. “Just being able to touch my face and rub my eyes and put my fingers in my hair and not having to worry about messing it up. It’s so much better.”
The ‘American Idol’ judge, whose also preparing for the release of sixth studio album ‘Love’, sits down with People to discuss her beauty regimens and how its rubbed off on her children.
Being Beautiful Is Part of The Job
“The thing is, it’s part of my job,” says the singer. “I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!”
On Being Called A “Diva”
“I kind of like it. We’ve kind of owned it now. But I certainly don’t like and I’ve never been a person who has what they call ‘diva behavior,’ which is something they tried to pin on me for a long time.”
Daughter Emme Follows In Mama’s Footsteps
“She is very girly-girl, just like me since I was very little. She loves for me to paint her nails,” Lopez says. “She lays out her clothes on the floor like I do with my stylist and she’s like, ‘This matches very good!’ ”
As For Son Max
“He wants to paint his nails too. Because for him, it’s just paint. He’s like, ‘I want the blue!'” Lopez says, laughing. “Then Marc is like, ‘Why are Max’s nails painted?!’ But he won’t sit still so it’s only like two nails.”
The magazine hits newsstands this Friday.
