Jennifer Lopez has arguably one of the best figures in Hollywood.
But the actress-singer revealed in the latest issue of Glamour U.K. that it takes a lot of work to maintain her enviable bod.
"I've got an athletic body, I've worked out my whole life and I've been incredibly disciplined when I needed to be," she revealed.
"Now I'm just a little bit more relaxed in that area. I feel like this is who I am. But it's also hard to shed that old skin."
J.Lo also dished on trying to find a healthy balance between enjoying herself and logging countless hours in the gym.
"Mentally, I'm always thinking about it. I'm OK looking this way, but at the same time that ambitious, determined girl inside me is like, 'Come on, let's be in the best shape ever and really show everybody.' Then the other side of me thinks, 'Let's just relax on the beach chair.'"
She added, "I'm not one to overindulge. It doesn't make me feel good. Some people find it comforting to sit down and eat a whole pint of Häagen-Dazs, but honestly that would make me throw up. I don't think I've ever eaten that much."
The American Idol judge opened up to the magazine about what she wants in a relationship, hinting at why she and Casper Smart work well together.
"The dream is to have a balance where you feel you could relinquish control from time to time and still be taken care of. It's about finding a relationship that has enough good stuff to outweigh the bad, because nobody's perfect, right?"
She further explained, "But without the spark that conflict brings, life would be so boring. I want a bit of chaos in a relationship, but I also want a bit of safety and order."
