Jennifer Lopez on January 2010 Cover of Allure

Jennifer Lopez: She's No Monster

Jennifer Lopez is looking radiant on the January cover of Allure, sharing with readers that her obsession with working out and counting calories are things of the past. "I'm not the monster I used to be in the exercise department," Lopez tells Allure. "You get past your 20s, you've got kids . . . you're kind of unmotivated."

After laying low for the last few years, 2010 promises to be big for the star. She's got a new album on the way, as well as the romantic comedy The Back-Up Plan. Make no mistake, though Lopez describes herself as being "unmotivated" when it comes to exercise, it doesn't seem like she's sitting around stuffing her face either. After the birth of her twins 18 months ago, Lopez worked hard to get rid of the baby weight and the results showed during her recent performance at this year's AMAs. Lopez is smart enough to know that in her world, appearances count:

"Part of my business is about being in shape and looking good. You can't lie to yourself about it . . ." Still, she is, she says, "a big portion-control person."

She confides that even though the desire to look good and be healthy is important to her, she wants to do, "the least amount to maintain that."

Do any of you share the same sentiment as Lopez — if you could get away with looking great with little work, would you?
