Jennifer Lopez has come to be known as a sex symbol with her beautiful curves and voluptuous booty. Although we may love her music, fashion taste, and her representation of curvier women, Lopez hasn’t always had the body confidence she flaunts today.
In an honest interview with Britain’s DARE magazine, the singer says, “I remember thinking I wasn’t thin enough because I had curves.” Despite this thought, Lopez has learned to embrace her body as it was and she encourages others to follow her body acceptance mindset.
The 46-year-old singer also attributed working out to helping her feel comfortable in her own skin and to continue help her spread the message of body confidence. Lopez gains her confidence from dancing.
“When my confidence is lagging, I dance,” said Lopez. “There’s something about seeing what my body is capable of and feeling the endorphin rush that comes with a good dance session that really helps boost my mood. I still consider myself a dancer at heart, and I love it!”
The talented singer and actress has been praised for her work in movies like Selena and The Wedding Singer, but she has also been recognized for her fabulous figure. Let’s not forget about her iconic green Versace gown at the 2000 Grammys. In case you didn’t know, J-Lo’s famous barely there attire inspired the creation of Google Images.
It seems the singer continues looking better with age. She is part of the skin-tight wearing celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj, who have nothing to hide.
Lopez is currently filming the second season of Shades Of Blue while still working hard on shows. In another interview with Deadline, she expressed her gratitude for all the work she’s involved in.
“I just tried to be grateful for the fact that, at this point in my career, I have this much going on. But the truth is the quality of the work, of the writing, of the actors, of Barry [Levinson], of the producers, of the writers room,” Lopez said.
Despite being the mother of 8-year-old twins, Lopez continues to give her all in everything she does. “I felt like, this is my best work, you know? This was how I started my career,” she said. “This is who I am. I always saw myself as an actress who danced and sang and had those talents as well, and I made my records later in my career.”
“I didn’t make my first record until I was almost 30. So the acting was always the first thing. That was where people got to know me,” Lopez said about remembering her roots.
