Jennifer Lopez Is Hot and Hyper on the Cover of Elle

Jennifer Lopez flashed some skin front and center on the cover of February's Elle — check out more images from the shoot here. Jennifer kept the Oscar talk out of this interview, but she did exude confidence talking about her upcoming album, swearing a bit and explaining why some of her movies worked so well. Up next is The Back-Up Plan as well as what she calls "Hyper J Lo," because she wants success now more than ever. Here are highlights:

  • On her successful movies: "I think Maid in Manhattan and Monster-in-Law are very layered movies. And that’s why they’re so successful. People don’t like sh*tty romantic comedies. Nothing that’s sh*tty is going to make $100 million."
  • On being a mom and a pop star at 40: "This is what I do—what, because I have kids and a husband now I’m not supposed to be me? I’m a more heightened me if anything. Hyper J Lo. Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn’t mean material things; it means to explore more, to think more. Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die."

For more about her family, career and fame

  • On trying to conceive: "When it comes to family and relationships, I’m quite traditional. Just because of the way I was raised. And I also believe in God and I have a lot of faith in that, so I just felt like you don’t mess with things like that. And I guess deep down I really felt like either this is not going to happen for me or it is. You know what I mean? And if it is, it will. And if it’s not, it’s not going to."
  • On betrayal: "This is something I haven’t been through once in my life. This is something I’ve been through a few times in my life. Where you really have your eggs in one basket and that breach happens and you know you should go but you’re still in love and you just don’t know what to do. It hits you because it’s not like you’re a cheater, and a liar, and I hate you, and you’re no good, and I’m leaving. It’s not that. It’s like, I’m tormented. Even though you’ve done this and I know it, I still don’t know what to do. I know I should go, but I don’t want to. And that’s why it’s such a f*cked-up thing."

oh and sabrina27; Lopez is Hispanic, she probably could pop out babies in her 50's if she wanted. I'm not trying to offend anyone, so sorry if I do, but my Hispanic friends have never had a problem conceiving at almost any age. 38 is nothing compared to what I've seen.

At least she is honest to the public and herself to a degree that most mediocre actors in HW can never achieve. Hate all you want but she is a very rich lady with a family and career...Jennifer Aniston please take note.

Yeah, her movies are sh*tty and we all know it, but I appreciate that she stands up for her movies instead of biting the hand that feeds her, à la Megan Fox.

Wow Jlo needs a dose of reality check and fast. People PAY to see shytty films ALL the time, that's the main problem with good indy films. They get award recognition but little money from BO. This why films such as Transformers, Twilight, etc, get made. It's all about $$$$ It is hard nowadays to find a film that is well done, doesn't need excess of violence or stup!d jokes to get people's attention (Avatar).

hahahahaaha! Monster in Law is such a "layered movies". If she thinks sh(tty movies don't make money then how does she explain the films in her career that actually did make money, or Transformers for that matter? This woman is all about money and fame, nothing more. She thinks money=substance and I can't stand people like that. First the oscar quote, not this. This has been needs to please shut her dumb ass up!

She seems to be everywhere over the last couple of weeks. Why should we care about her again?

sorry, J.Lo but people will go see shitty movies, such as yours. the only good movie you made was Out Of Sight and we can thank Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney for making you look good. she is so conceited. photoshopped to oblivion too, miz lopez.

all I heard was lies and dribble...first of all, quality vs quantity...people will pay to see shytty movies despite horrid reviews b/c they like an actor...both of those movies sucked...she hates being "J-Lo" but she refers to herself in the third person, I prefer J-Low if ya know what I mean...I don't buy whatever it is she's selling
