Jennifer Lopez, 49, displays her enviable curves as she touches on sexism


Jennifer Lopez is in the best shape of her life thanks to daily workouts alongside her beau Alex Rodriguez.

And the Second Act actress showed off the benefits of exercise as she posed in a black swimsuit for the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

During her interview, the World Of Dance star said that she is sick of haters asking why she is still successful at age 49 when men seldom get that question.

‘I feel very proud that I’ve survived as long as I have in this business. At this point in my life, I’m trying to give myself more credit,’ began the mother of two.

‘It’s hard when people are always telling you that you’re not good at things or saying, “Why is she successful?” You get a lot of that when you’re a successful woman. You don’t get that as much when you’re a man. 

‘The thing about people, women especially, is that you can have 12 people telling you you’re amazing, but that one person kind of putting you down, that’s the voice that sticks in your head… 

She keeps going: 'I feel very proud that I've survived as long as I have in this business. At this point in my life, I'm trying to give myself more credit,' the Jenny From The Block star said

‘Then finally you go, “Wait, I’m not lying. I’ve been doing this a long time. This is not a mistake. I worked hard to be here.” And you know what? Congratulations to myself. Not in an arrogant way, by any means. It’s like, “You’re doing good, baby. Give yourself a break.”

As far as her reputation for being a diva – there was a time when she was known for demanding white candles and furniture in her dressing room – she said it is not true.

‘You’re trying to do your best and people are putting you down, or trying to make believe you’re not a nice person, or you’re a diva. I’m always like, ‘Who are you talking about?”

And though everyone knows she is an adept hyphenate now, it wasn’t always so. Plenty of people did not believe she could sing, act and design clothes all at once.

‘From early on in my career, I felt like people wanted to put me in a box,’ said the ex of Ben Affleck.

‘You will play these sorts of roles, do this type of thing. Or you will only act. You cannot sing and act at the same time.

Not specific enough: She also talked about love, but those wanting to know if she will get engaged soon to A-Rod will be disappointed. 'For me, the relationship journey has been very up and down. But it didn't have to do with anybody else but me—it was about me figuring out me,' she said. Seen with Alex in December

‘I felt very confined by that because I knew I was going to do different things. I was at least going to try!’

But she does get exhausted from it all.

‘Sometimes I get tired. I get tired a lot. But I never think, ‘” don’t want to do this.” I just think I need a break. 

‘I really feel like I have a lot left that I want to do. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to a point where I’ll be satisfied and go, “I did it. All of it. I’m done. I got nothing else to say.” I hope that day never comes.’

‘Until you learn to love yourself, you can’t completely love [someone else] in a way that is pure and true. 

‘Once you do that, you can have relationships that are based on love and respect, that are supportive and nourishing. There’s an evolution there that had to happen for me. I feel like I’m in a better place now.’

And Lopez also touched on her daughter Emme who appeared in her Limitless video: ‘I don’t know if she’ll follow in my footsteps, but she definitely has the genes. She’s a natural. Some people, you put them out there and you can just tell. She’s a little me.’
