Jennifer Lopez: American Idol Career Scrapped; Movie Career Re-Booted!!
Posted by Adam
JENNIFER Lopez is planning to focus on her movie career now that she’s quitting American Idol.
The Maid in Manhattan star announced last week that she won’t be returning to the judging panel of the US TV show.
“I do miss doing films. I feel like the last two years with American Idol, I’ve really, really focused on, you know, my music… It was all kind of very synergistic, it worked really well together,” she said.
“But film is something that I really loved, it’s how I kind of started in this business, and it doesn’t leave you. I am an actress, I need to do that, too.”
Meanwhile, Lopez, 42, has taken her twins, Max and Emme, on tour with her.
“From a personal standpoint, I just want it to be an enjoyable, healthy, exciting experience for us, something that we can look back on and say, ‘Oh, we did this’,” she said.
“I don’t even know if they’ll remember, they’re only four right now, but I want it to be something that will be good for them.”
Recent reports claimed Lopez eats four small meals a day to maintain her stunning figure.
“Jen drinks ice-cold water to speed up her metabolism, bans carbs after 4pm and sticks to four small meals a day, which are packed with protein,” a source said.
“Jen is up at 6am every morning for an hour’s exercise. She hates doing the same workout twice and likes to switch it up with core-strengthening routines, yoga or runs or the beach.
“She takes a skipping rope with her when she travels and, when she gets a spare moment, will drop to the floor to do around four minutes of sit-ups. Jen likes to work out with Casper as they really egg each other on.”
