Jennifer Lopez: ‘I try not to think about age. I go more with how I feel inside’

Jennifer Lopez was on Ellen’s show last week. She had on a weird dress with one sleeve and a collar that went across her chest, like it was a dress shirt that was lazily converted to a dress. Ellen mentioned Jennifer’s Vegas show ending after 3 years and they talked about Jennifer being 49 and looking awesome. Ellen wanted to know if Jennifer ever thinks about age and of course she doesn’t. Then Ellen claimed that Alex Rodriguez had texted her that he was going to marry Jennifer. She got all giddy and it was cute.

You work out all the time
Even before I was a dancer, I was an athlete. I ran track. So I’ve taken all of that and I’ve kept it going.

Do you care about age? Do you think about it?
I try not to think about it. I go more with how I feel inside. I feel very youthful, you know? I’m energetic. I feel like I have a lot of energy still. Maybe one day that will change, but right now I feel pretty good.

Your boyfriend, he said that ya’ll are going to be getting married
He did not say that.

He texted me today and he said…
Let me see the text

So you’ll be getting married?
I don’t know

You should, you seem very happy
We are, we’ve been together a couple of years, it’s nice.

On other shows you assume that all the questions are preapproved, but Ellen likes to put celebrities on the spot so this could have been an ambush. I like that Jennifer is dating a guy who isn’t young and stupid (I mean the stupid part is arguable but she was with that backup dancer after her divorce for years) and that she’s not engaged after a couple of years. That said, I see them getting engaged soon. I doubt they’ll last more than a couple more years, but I could be surprised. They seem really into each other and they’re so cute together!

Here’s the interview!

A-Rod is always making that face like he smelled something.

    I could actually see them lasting as they would be a brand as well as a couple …

  2. Jadedone says:

    Of all the men JLo has dated Arod seems like her best match, they seem very similiar.

  3. CheckThatPrivilege says:

    That private jet leaves a huge carbon footprint and is an incredibly selfish choice. But, sure, looking good, looking rich, and self-indulgently not having to deal with the public even in a limited 1st-class section is the #1 priority — the hell with the planet and her descendants’ futures. It’s a shame, because she could make a hell of a statement about environmental responsibility while being drop-dead gorgeous and successful. Too many of our wealthiest people are environmental nightmares.

    • Harryg says:

      Agree. Every time I take a long shower and feel guilty about it, I think of all these people flying jets for fun and stuff, and then I feel like my long shower is nothing compared to that.
      Kardassian and Megalomaniac for example killed at least one polar bear taking that plane. I loathe them.

      But yeah – can’t they stop asking Lopez about aging?

    • Boodiba says:

      I read somewhere that Leo DiCaprio took a private jet from Europe to the US and back to accept some fawning environmental award.

      • CheckThatPrivilege says:

        I heard that, too. god, I honestly don’t know how someone professing to care about our environmental future could do that and not be doubled over with guilt, shame and regret. But that’s probably just me projecting a conscience onto a self-absorbed celeb who may be somewhat lacking in personal awareness, a sense of irony, and desperately needed reality checks. What a missed opportunity to take an action congruent with his words, by accepting the award remotely and explaining why he chose not to attend and get his ass kissed in person.

      I watched KUWTK last night. Kim and Kanye flew to Paris for ONE day. Rich people don’t care about the environment at all.

  4. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    So gorgeous. I saw the Ellen interview and it is cute, however, I just realized I hope they don’t get married.

  5. CheckThatPrivilege says:

    LOL, I enjoyed your comment. Yes, here’s JLo making the impossible possible with an XXXL budget and plenty of time to work out. She’s got a life where she’s thriving, and I admire and respect that. But my breathless Instagram admiration goes toward some of the women out there who show up day after day making a genuine and mostly unsung difference in people’s lives.

    • Harryg says:

      Exactly. I like Lopez, but every time I have to hear how she “works so hard” I want to roll my eyes out of my head. Everyone I know works really hard.

      • CheckThatPrivilege says:

        yes, I’m trying to think if I know anyone who doesn’t work hard, and I’m coming up pretty short.

  6. DiegoInSF says:

    She’s just an inspiration, she is so amazingly charismatic on talk shows. I enjoyed her on Ellen so much. They have great chemistry and I believe they’re also friends.

  7. Mar says:

    I love her Chanel outfit.

  8. Sam says:

    Ellen asks everyone she interviews about age. She needs better questions.
