Jennifer Lopez Talks Body Issues

Jennifer Lopez has one of the most sought after bodies in Hollywood, but she admits that as she gets older, she's conflicted when it comes to her cuerpo.

The 44-year-old mami of two is Glamour UK's March 2014 cover star and she spilled to the magazine about how things like the way she looks is constantly on her mind.

"Mentally, I'm always thinking about it," she said. "I'm OK looking this way, but at the same time that very 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.'"

Lopez says she often faces an internal battle about whether or not to let go of that drive and desire to look perfect.

"I've got an athletic body, I've worked out my whole life and I've been incredibly disciplined when I needed to be," the American Idol judge told Glamour UK. "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."
