Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Jennifer Lopez graced the cover of W magazine’s latest issue and the singer talked about her split from ex-husband Marc Anthony.

The actress, dancer, producer, “American Idol” judge, and Las Vegas performer said that going through her divorce was not easy. She shared, “When it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, 'This is too hard.' When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness. 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.”

She added that Anthony is the father of her children and that it something that will not go away so she had to make things right noting that it is by far the most difficult thing she did.

The mother of two shared that she was married for seven years but she knew very quickly that it was not the right thing. Lopez was married two times in the past and broke off her engagement from Ben Affleck.

The singer then talked about her on-and-off boyfriend, Casper Smart. The two split last year but were seen together at an event earlier this year. She shared, "We got together and broke up and are now together again. I still think about getting married and having that long life with someone. I love the movie The Notebook. A dream of mine is to grow old with someone."

Aside from love, the 46-year-old talked about gender inequality in the business. She shared that people think she is nice but they act surprised when they find out that she is smart. She noted that the industry is still a man’s world and women are not valued as much as men.

She added, "I feel like I'm constantly having to prove myself. If a man does one thing well, people immediately say he's a genius. Women have to do something remarkable over and over and over."
