Jennifer Lopez On Marc Anthony Divorce: Talks Split In Vanity Fair

AP/Huffington Post:

NEW YORK -- Jennifer Lopez tells Vanity Fair magazine that she still believes in love despite her split from her husband of seven years, Marc Anthony.

The singer and actress gave the publication her first interview since announcing her divorce earlier this month.

"Sometimes it doesn’t work – and that's sad," Lopez, 42, tells the magazine. "But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love."

Lopez, who has had a string of high-profile relationships, says she's learned to walk away from something when it isn't right.

"Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves," she tells Vanity Fair. "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."

One thing Lopez says she and Anthony do right is work together, saying "together we make magic."

The couple has two children, twins Max and Emme.

The September issue of Vanity Fair goes on sale nationwide Aug. 9. Read more from the press release here.

Jennifer Lopez married Cuban-born Ojani Noa in 1997. The pair first met that same year while Noa was working as a waiter in Miami. Their short-lived romance ended only eleven months later in a divorce. Despite their quick split, they remain a part of one another's lives--in the form of law suits. In 2007, "a court-appointed arbitrator issued a permanent injunction that forbid Noa from 'criticizing, denigrating, casting in a negative light or otherwise disparaging' his ex-wife"--a ruling that kept an alleged Lopez-Noa sex tape under wraps.
