Jennifer Lopez has broken her silence about her split with husband Marc Anthony, telling Vanity Fair that she "worked really hard" to try and salvage the relationship. Lopez and Anthony, who are parents to three-year-old twins Max and Emme, announced their split via a terse statement last month.
Lopez told Vanity Fair magazine, "That (marriage) was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did. Sometimes it doesn't work – and that's sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love.
Lopez continued, "It's still my biggest dream… I'm a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love."
The singer/actress/American Idol judge, who just turned 42, said that she knew the relationship was over at a specific point. She said, "It's not that I didn't love myself before. Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself – if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now."
Hmmm, from that statement, it'd seem that the relationship between the Latin superstars broke down and perhaps some "other" stuff was going on?
