It’s been two weeks and finally, Jennifer Lopez is opening up about her split form husband Marc Anthony in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
“That was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did,” Lopez, 42, says of her failed union with Anthony, also 42. “Sometimes it doesn’t work–and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love.”
As far as the reason for the split goes: “Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself–if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now,” she declares.
And things are not left sour with her and Marc. “I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer,” she says. “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.”
