We’ve seen photos of Jennifer Lopez’s new boyfriend Casper Smart, and although he’s got a skinhead, we could think of loads of things to call him that aren’t “good egg”.
But Jennifer’s a grown woman (42) allowed to call her 24-year-old boyfriend whatever she likes.
In an interview with Vogue, she revealed: “He’s adorable. But you already see that. “He’s a good egg. I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing.”
She was much happier to talk about Marc Anthony. When the interviewer mentioned that Marc had been “drinking cans of beer and chain-smoking Newports” at a photoshoot seven years ago, she wasn’t surprised: “He’s still doing it! Look, we are total opposites that way. I’m used to that from growing up where I did.”
“The men kind of drink beer and smoke cigarettes, and women kind of like…don’t. But those things were not the issue so much.”
She continued: “It became about something else. Without going into detail…it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional and sometimes difficult.”
However, the pair - who have two children, Max and Esme, together – still get on well: “We’re still friends – and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.”
“But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we’re handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids.”
The American Idol judge said she doesn't like to give too much away: Speaking on the same day that she appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’s chat show, she said: “What you saw today, on Ellen, it’s very dignified and trying to be above all the emotions and pain that come along with a divorce and a family breaking apart. “This is grown-up stuff. It’s real, serious grown-up stuff.”
