Jennifer Lopez covers V Magazine‘s sports issue wearing a protective cup. Shot by Mario Testino, she rocks boxer’s gear while showing a little flesh.
On the lack of success with her movie The Backup Plan and recent albums: “You’re not going to hit the target or the bull’s-eye every time. That’s part of it,” Lopez says. “At the end of the day, I made those choices. I’ve been in the business now, I don’t want to say how many years. You have amazing moments of recognition and success. But at this point in my life, I try to take it all with a grain of salt.”
On her relationship with Marc: “I mean, we’re parents and friends first,” she says with a smidgen of exasperation. “That will be the thread that ties us together. I don’t know if people expect it to be negative (Of course they do, Jennifer!) just because the [intimate] relation- ship didn’t work out.”
On her aura of toughness: “I’ve always felt like a tough girl from the Bronx,” she says. “But I have a soft core.”
