'I’ve taken care of myself, and now it shows': Jennifer Lopez flaunts gorgeous curves in saucy photoshoot
Lopez credits three main things when it comes to maintaining and keeping her great physique - no caffeine, no alcohol and lots of sleep
Jennifer Lopez wowed everyone when she sported her now-infamous green plunging side slit dress on the Grammys red carpet 18 years ago. However, her latest photo shoot gave the iconic Grammys dress a run for its money.
In the December issue of Instyle, JLo can be seen wearing a metallic green Valentino Haute Couture pleated cape as a dress. The dress shows off Lopez's stunning curves and fit physique. She credits three main things when it comes to maintaining and keeping her great physique - no caffeine, no alcohol and lots of sleep. Lopez told Instyle, "I’ve taken care of myself, and now it shows".

@JLo was a forerunner in the trend of embracing curvier body types, but she insists that body image isn’t something she ever thought much about. “I didn’t realize what I was doing — I was just being myself. In my family, curves were glorified and part of the culture. It was just like ‘Jennifer has a big butt, and it’s good.’” Not only good, but also culture-changing. She says her friend @KimKardashian once told her that she wore a “What would J.Lo do?” bracelet! 🔥Read the full profile at the link in bio. I Photographed by @Anthony.Maule; Styled by @JuliePelipas
As she approaches turning 50-years-old, Lopez shared she has not experienced any memory loss or low energy, unlike many others hitting half a century. She did, however, admit she squints at her phone, gets backaches, and noticed how her muscles tend to get loose when she dances too much. She revealed she counters this by also adding weight training into her exercise routine and workouts.
In the interview, she also addressed growing up with a curvier figure and the fact that she was always very accepting about her body and body image. "In my family, curves were glorified and part of the culture. It was just like, ‘Jennifer has a big butt, and it’s good,'" she said. Lopez revealed she believes, as a celebrity, social media is actually nicer than before the days of smartphones.

"It was actually worse then. It was just crazy. Now at least I can show you who I am a little bit. Back then you just believed anything you read on the cover of a tabloid. Many times, it wasn’t true, or it was like a third of the truth," she pointed.
However, she admitted social media too has its drawbacks, but said it is different for young actors who "didn’t live through the tabloid era". "Now I sound like my mom. 'I used to walk uphill to school before there were cars!'" she quipped.
