Jennifer Lopez graces the cover this year’s Us Weekly ‘Best Bodies’ issue in a smoking hot black cutout swimsuit. She says she is in better shape now than she was in her 20s and opens up about her fitness and dieting secrets to success.
At the age of 45, still considered an “advanced age” by some, superstar multi-hyphenate Jennifer Lopez graces the cover and was selected over a total of 78 stars featured in the magazine.
She told the Us Weekly, “I see pictures of myself in my twenties and go, “Oh, I look better now! I feel sexy, youthful and happy.” She went on to add, “I embrace who I am.”
Speaking of her fitness routine, with the famed celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson, she said, “I work out, but I’m not as much of a fanatic as I used to be. And, funnily enough, I feel like I’m in better shape now.”
She also revealed in the interview that she feels comfortable with her body type which, as we know, can be struggle for many, even celebrities.
Jennifer Lopez said of her physique, “From the time I was very young, I was told there was nothing wrong with my body type. Some people are told they’re too heavy or too thin or too tall or short, but at the end of the day you have to appreciate who you are.”
She continued, saying, “I’m not a 6-foot-tall model. I’m not a size 2. And when I came to Hollywood, that’s what the world was filled with. I was fine being me and I think that changed a lot of people’s thinking.”
And she still stuns on the red carpet; most recently at the Billboard Music Awards (above) which saw her in a highly revealing dress with a sheer front panel and strategically placed feathers. She was similarly scantily dressed at the Met Gala. And over the years she’s given us many iconic red carpet fashions, most of which few would dare to attempt to duplicate.
She also opened up about being single again — although she did not address rumors that she is still dating Casper Smart — and revealed she is focused again on career and on her seven-year-old twins.
She also has a new line of diet products, and she touted them in the interview, saying, “”I live a healthy lifestyle, I try to live a healthy lifestyle.” She went on to add, “I’m always looking for something that’s gonna help me enhance that lifestyle. BodyLab is a set of supplements that is about your body working as hard as you do.”
