The popular entertainer recently sat down for an interview with Vanity Fair and revealed she put great pressure on herself to “do something great all the time,” after becoming the first Latin actress to make $1 million from a role in a film.
She said believed she would find success with her 2003 film “Gigli,” which she starred in alongside then-fiancé Affleck, but the film was a major flop at the box office.
“I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever. In his 20s, he came into big success with the biggest baseball contract [at the time]. I had a No. 1 movie and a No. 1 album and made history. We both had ups and downs and challenges in our 30s, and by our 40s we’d both been through so much. And more importantly than anything, we had both done a lot of work on ourselves,” Lopez told Vanity Fair.
