Jennifer Is a Cover Girl & She Has a Back-Up Plan For an Oscar

Jennifer Lopez shows off her golden glow on the February cover of Latina. Jen kicked off the year with a sparkly and talked-about NYE performance, featuring one of her biggest hits and her latest song "Louboutins." In a few month's well see her in a new film The Back-Up Plan, and during the interview she talked openly about her past relationships, marriage to Marc, and the hunt for an Oscar. Here's what she has to to say about her Academy Award chances:

"I feel like I had that [Oscar-worthy role] in El Cantante, but I don’t even think the Academy members saw it . . . It was funny; when the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later. I was sitting there with my twins — I couldn’t have been happier — but I was like, 'How dope would it have been if I would’ve won the Oscar and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award?' . . . But we joked about it. It’s all good. Things will happen when they’re supposed to happen. I have the utmost faith and no doubt that it will one day, when and if it’s supposed to. You can’t get all crazy twisted over it."

people like jennifer who do roles only to get oscar nods are scum. No real actors who love their work do that. only desperate untalented hacks like her do.

granted, i haven't seen this illustrious movie she mentions but i don't foresee that an oscar is imminent in her career. she'll need more than just an oscar-worthy role. she'll need oscar-worthy execution too.

And not only that, goes on to imply that was the only reason she didn't win--because the academy voters didn't see it.It never occurred to her that maybe they DID see it, and that is the reason she didn't win? LOL.

hahahahahaha!!! Could she be more narcissistic? I can't believe she said that! It's obvious this girl just wants the Oscar for her ego not because she has any sort of substance. She is delusional if she actually thought El Cantante was her Oscar worthy role. Everything about this woman is shallow and selfish "ME ME ME". Come back down to earth girl!

Yah, I mean I love Jennifer, but thats just a weird thing to say. Like she should have won the Oscar for some movie that wasnt seen by anyone, let alone the academy..

She's a little off her rocker. First, in the Elle interview she talks about how "traditional" her view of marriage is, but she's been married three times. And now she thinks she deserves an Oscar? DELUSIONAL MUCH?

She definitely believes in herself :-) Well, self esteem is not a bad thing.

Ok that movie was on cable and I started to watch it and it was just unwatchable. I'm glad she thought it was oscar-worthy! On a side note...who did her make-up for this cover, she looks terrible!

lol...jlo w/ an oscar? if that happened, i think i would boycott for the rest of my life. if anything was award worthy, i'd say Selina...but only for something like a Golden Globe. next we are going to hear Mariah Carey whining about how much she wants one!! singers should stick to singing!

I agree with that no. 9. I think her thoughts and opinions as a whole on the matter are very evident and the "when and if" just sounds like a calculated attempt to come off as somewhat gracious and/or humble. But humble is one role that JLo will *definitely* never win an Oscar for. This is one of those instances where I almost feel embarrassed for her. Knowing that she made that movie thinking it was her "Oscar role" and then blaming the academy for not seeing it? Cringe-worthy display of egotism, narcissism, delusion and self-entitlement.

She sounds like a Grade-A idiot. It's as if she accepted the role for an Oscar, not because she's passionate about acting.

She's delusional and it's obvious why she married Marc so he can continue to blow smoke up her ass.

Does she really think El Cantante was a good movie? I don't know about other people, but IMO that movie was just bad.
