Jennifer Lopez turns heads as she goes shirt free to display her chest in plunging tuxedo leotard
Jennifer Lopez, 52, has landed another top magazine cover.
The singer and actress dazzled in a cut-out suit and as she modeled a new short bob haircut for the cover of a March rolling Stone cover that focuses on Icons and Influences.
The cover copy said that she 'broke all the rules to get to the top' while sharing her motto has been 'f**k it.'
Lopez also stated that Hollywood has not always invited her in: 'I'm an underdog. I always feel like I was scrapping from the bottom. Always. That’s part of being Puerto Rican and from the Bronx and a woman.'
The girlfriend of Ben Affleck is promoting her new movie Marry Me with Owen Wilson.
The star is in a great place in her life. She keeps making hit movies under her Nuyorican Productions banner which she created to 'take matters into my own hands,' she told Rolling Stone. And on Marry Me, she even produced her own soundtrack which features Latin dynamo Maluma.
But she is not in the in crowd she stated: 'There’s a club I just wasn't a part of. And I always acted like, "I’m good. I’m OK." But it hurts not to be included. I don’t know if I ever will be.'
And she has found love again with her former fiancé Affleck.
'I'm trying not to say too much,' she told the magazine. 'I'm really happy.'
When pushed to discuss Ben she said: 'I won't talk about it a lot. We've both grown. We're the same, and we're different. And that's what's nice,' she told the publication.
'Having a second chance at real love … yeah. Like I said, we learned a lot. We know what's real, what's not real. So it's just — the game has changed. Again, I'm trying not to say too much.'
And she wants to protect that love.
'I don't think we would have got back together if we thought that was where it was headed,' she explained. 'We feel like what we found again is so much more important, and how we protect that and how we live our lives — what to share, what not to share — is the balance that we have now, the benefit of experience and the wisdom that we gained over the years.'
She also touched on how they were under so much pressure the first time they dated.
And Jenny was harshly treated with an episode of South Park making her seem like a villain and even some comedians saying she looked like a maid.
'It was brutal. It was brutal. It's one of those things that you bury very deeply so you can move on and get about your business,' she said. 'It's funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love. It was one of the happiest times of my life.
'But also, there was this other thing happening where we were being criticized, and it really destroyed our relationship from the inside out,' she added, 'because we were just too young to understand at that time what were really the most important things in life.'
And Lopez also took the time out to credit her mother for making her such a success in entertainment.
'My mom was also the mom who got me into musicals and introduced me to all kinds of music. I am an entertainer because of my mom. But I’m also able to survive the things I’ve survived in this business because my mom was tough. I don’t think she could realize what she was preparing me for, but she did,' said the artist.
This is not her first Rolling Stone cover. She also wore a Princess Leia style bikini for a 2001 cover.
Last week she also said she was happy when on the Today show.
Lopez and Affleck have a 'happy, healthy relationship'. The siren and Ben previously dated between 2002 and 2004, and they rekindled their romance last year, with.
Jennifer feeling they're both now at 'different places' in their lives.
She shared: 'We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things.'
Jennifer has already been married three times, to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony.
But she's convinced that Ben, 49, is the perfect man for her.
She told People magazine: 'It's a beautiful outcome that this has happened in this way at this time in our lives where we can really appreciate and celebrate each other and respect each other.
'We always did, but we have even more of an appreciation because we know that life can take you in different directions.'
Jennifer and Ben's romance attracted huge attention and scrutiny in the early 2000s.
But the 'Jenny from the Block' hitmaker is convinced they're both now older and wiser, and will be able to cope with the pressure this time around.
She said: 'I think we are strong enough now to know what's real and what's not, whereas when we were younger maybe some of those outside voices were a little bit tougher for us to reconcile and survive.'
Jennifer also feels they're both on the same page at this point in their lives.
She explained: 'I feel like he's at a place in his life where - just like I feel about myself - it's been a journey of learning yourself and figuring yourself out, getting to a place where you feel really good on your own and who you are so you can be in a happy, healthy relationship.'
