Jennifer Lopez has managed to keep her enviable curves even as she approaches 52.

But the Hustlers actress has shared with InStyle Magazine that she’s no longer playing sports these days, just in a more calculated way that has resulted in a better sculpted frame.

‘I am in the best shape of my life. In my 20s and 30s I trained, but not the way I do now. It’s not like I train anymore; I just work harder and smarter. And it didn’t take me as long as in the past, ”the mother said to twins Max and Emme.

The conversation started when her ex-fiancé Ben Affleck told the publication, ‘Where do you keep the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it looks like I’m in my 40s… at best? ‘

Lopez – whose next movie is Marry Me with Owen Wilson – replied, ‘I don’t have one [beauty] secrets except JLo Beauty – and I give them all to everyone with every product. Ben is funny! He still looks pretty good. ‘

Then the Jenny From The Block singer said, ‘I also think I’m in the best shape of my life.

‘When I was in my twenties and thirties I used to train, but not the way I do now. It’s not like I train anymore; I just work harder and smarter. And it didn’t take me as long as in the past. ‘

Jennifer insisted that she doesn’t exercise every day for vanity, but to feel her best.

‘I do it more for my health than appearance, which is funny. If you do things for the right reasons, you actually look better! the Bronx resident shared.

Also in an article, which featured quotes from several of her friends, Ryan Seacrest discussed J-Lo’s eating habits.

They collaborated on American Idol from 2011 to 2016.

Jennifer is clearly in great shape. She keeps fit, she trains, but she eats what she wants, and I rob myself.

‘And she said,’ Why are you taking it away? Just take a bite of the cookie, Ryan. You don’t have to have the whole cookie. So now I’m living my life trying to remember to take a bite of the cookie, not the whole cookie. It is not going so well. ‘

Lopez replied to his quote, “Someday I’m going to tell everyone my secret cookie recipe. It came from a secret couple, and these cookies are my favorite. Someday I’ll give you the J dough! And actually I think I will call it that! ‘

While there were more than a dozen friends who spoke to the magazine about Jenny – including Michelle Obama and Charlize Theron – her current fiancé Alex Rodriguez didn’t.

And the Bronx bombshell didn’t wear the $ 1 million diamond engagement ring that A-Rod presented to her in 2019.

Alex doesn’t appear in the story at all, and more telling, perhaps, is that she left behind the $ 1 million diamond engagement ring that the sports reporter presented to her on a beach in 2019.

Instead, she models rings from Tiffany & Co.

But a source said it PageSix that A-Rod’s absence from the cover story is no sign that the two are out: “This is absolutely untrue, and reading this when there is little background knowledge is misleading.”

The rumblings of issues between Jennifer and Alex started last month when the same site said they had been fighting for months and would announce a split in the very near future.

The split announcement never came and instead Alex flew to the Dominican Republic where Jennifer Shotgun photographed Wedding with Josh Duhamel.

The couple was even seen kissing in an easy chair while in their bathrobes in photos obtained by DailyMail.com.

The InStyle issue is impressive with various images of the star in a bathing suit and white tank top walking on the beach.
