Jennifer Lopezhas revealed that ex-hubby Marc Anthonyis to thank for her overcoming her secret insecurities.
During an interview with the November issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, J.Lo revealed: "The biggest insecurity I had was my singing… Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, I’m not good at this.
"And while I was married to Marc, he helped me get over it. He kept telling me, ‘You’re the only one holding yourself back from reaching your full potential as a singer. You have to let go'.”
The 44-year old added: "I was always so insecure. Then I grew, little by little, and realised, wait a minute, this is not a fluke. I’m not a mistake – I work my ass off. And I know what I’m doing.”
Lopez also divulged details concerning her romance with Casper Smart, calling him his real name 'Beau' and explaining she has "high-standards" when it comes to what she looks for in a boyfriend.
Speaking of the 26-year old, Lopez confessed: "For me, it’s about having a great partner to walk this life with. I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table.
"I’m not talking about the material things but what I have to offer as a person – love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship.”
Jen went on to add that that despite being loved up with Smart, she gets annoyed at being ignored.
The mum-of-two stated: "It’s funny, early on with Beau, I remember telling him how I have a real button on being ignored.
“And he was like, ‘Listen, if somebody ignores you, then forget them. They don’t deserve to have your attention.’ But it’s funny. Sometimes when we don’t get it, we try to get it in a negative way, you know?”
