Jennifer Lopez opens up about her famously fit body in Glamour UK.

The performer says, “I’ve got an athletic body, I’ve worked out my whole life and I’ve been incredibly disciplined when I needed to be.”

“Now I’m just a little bit more relaxed in that area,” adds Lopez. “I feel like this is who I am. But it’s also hard to shed that old skin.”

She explains that she tries to find balance.

“Mentally, I’m always thinking about it. I’m OK looking this way, but at the same time that ambitious, determined girl inside me is like, ‘Come on, let’s be in the best shape ever and really show everybody,’” says Lopez. “Then the other side of me thinks, ‘Let’s just relax on the beach chair.’”

Part of that discipline is not snacking on junk food.

Lopez says, “I’m not one to over-indulge. It doesn’t make me feel good. Some find it comforting to sit down and eat a whole pint of Häagen-Dazs, but that would make me throw up.”

She also talks to the magazine about her love life.

“The dream is to have a balance where you feel you could relinquish control from time to time and still be taken care of,” explains Lopez. “It’s about finding a relationship that has enough good stuff to outweigh the bad, because nobody’s perfect, right?”

She adds, “But without the spark that conflict brings, life would be so boring. I want a bit of chaos in a relationship, but I also want a bit of safety and order.”
