Jennifer Lopez is a n American actress, singer, dancer, producer and businesswoman who turned 50 this year.
Every year it feels as if J.Lo is aging backwards, but like she says, “it’s really how you feel inside.”
Jennifer Lopez, insists the days of women in the entertainment business being “conditioned to think” they are finished when they get older are done.
In an interview with this week’s issue of ES Magazine, she said: “Did I think I would be doing this at 50? I didn’t think I’d stop, but I didn’t know that it would be the best moment of my life.
“We’re conditioned to think, as women, that it would be over by now. And the truth is, it’s not like that at all. I find myself growing and getting better every year and that’s exciting.
“It’s ambition for sure, and also toughness. This business is not for the faint-hearted – it eats people up. To survive in it for as many years as I have, you’ve got to have a tough skin.”
“When you’re young, you’re just so, like, you think you know everything,” she added. “When my first album came out … I just thought that I had it all figured out.”
“You don’t realize until your 30s that you know nothing, and then in 40s you start kinda figuring it out. And then when you’re 50 you’re just like, ah I’m just me and it’s good and it’s great!”
“Stop spending so much time worrying about what others think. Because when you love yourself and you’re happy, it is reflected in your whole body – and that’s what makes you truly beautiful. And use a good moisturizer.”
“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,” she expressed in another interview.
“There are no limits. You don’t have to be put in a box. You can really do anything you want to do and everything you want to do. Not just anything, but everything,” she told THR.
“You don’t just have to be one thing. There are no limits, and you can be all that you want to be in every single way – personally, professionally. You can change your mind. You can try new things.
Age doesn’t matter. Spirit, heart and soul matter. That’s what I hope that I stand for for people.”
