“I would love to live somewhere either than the States, in a small town in Italy, or the other side of the world in Bali. Find a life where it is a little bit more simple and organic. Where I get to ride a bike and buy bread, then go home and put jelly on it, and just eat and paint or sit on a rocking chair where there is a beautiful view of an olive tree or oak tree and I could just smell it,” she told Vanity Fair Magazine.

Known as more than an actress, she has been involved in music, production, dancing and fashion, her first love still remains acting. “You have your first love, and then you have the love of your life, acting is the love of my life. I feel like everytime I take on role, it is only about becoming somebody I am not. When they go in to see me, they don’t see J.Lo., they see who they’re supposed to see, because I am still able to give you the suspension of disbelief,” she concluded.
