Jennifer Lopez is not just a strong performer. She is also a strong woman inside based on how she survived from her heartbreaks. Read on for a heartfelt revelation from JLo.

Lopez admitted in an interview for the January 2015 cover story of Self magazine that she finds solace in relationships in spite of the heartaches that come with it.

Lopez seems to be forever young in her fresh look on Self. Her body is still toned to perfection like her younger self. She is wearing white briefs and a white crop top with long sleeves in one photo. She explained she keeps her body in shape through dancing.

The heartbreaks experienced by Lopez are also common to ordinary women.

“I’ve been cheated on, just like every other girl in the world,” the 45-year-old superstar told Self.

Lopez can also relate with her character that falls in love with a teenage boy in the upcoming thriller film, “The Boy Next Door.” She said she sympathized and understood the emotions from her experience with Casper Smart. Smart is a choreographer and dancer who is nearly 20 years younger than her. They split last June after more than two years.  

Lopez also dated several young men in the past, but she could not understand why those relationships were newsworthy.

“All the old clichés about women need to be undone,” she said.

She claimed dating younger men is not a taboo for her. She knew men have been in relationships with older women for years, so it must not be a big deal.

Lopez married three times, one of them is Marc Anthony. She called herself a “love addict,” which can be a reason why she had several relationships.

“When you have that much pain, you have to anesthetize yourself in some ways,” she said.

She said some people anesthetize themselves by partying and hooking up. However, her way is to find comfort in somebody’s presence.

What is next for JLo? She said she wants to prove that she can do everything like Superwoman, but she must have time for herself.

Knowing her personality like the back of her hand, Lopez knew her fear was being alone. She had a hard time facing her fear. What she did was she learned to love herself first.
