She’s lent her hand to almost every profession, and is an accomplished singer, dancer, actress, and producer; however, 43-year-old Jennifer Lopez says relationships are the hardest work of all.

Speaking to W Magazine, JLo opened up about her previous relationship with ex-husband Marc Anthony, saying that ‘when it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, “this is too hard”’.

She also admitted that she knew the relationship didn’t totally feel right from the beginning.

‘I hung in there for seven years,’ she says of her third marriage ‘I knew very quickly that it wasn’t the right thing.’

Despite it not being the right thing, the two married in June of 2004 after having only dated for part of that year

When talking about their 7 year relationship she says:

‘It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger,’

‘But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do.’

The couple share two children together, 8-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian, who now live with the singer and her current on-off boyfriend, professional dancer Casper Smart.
