Jennifer Lopez Says She Still Believes in Love

PRNewsFoto/L'Oreal Paris(NEW YORK) -- In her first interview since announcing that she and Marc Anthony are divorcing, Jennifer Lopez tells Vanity Fair that she still believes in love.

“I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love...It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive -- determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

In the article, Lopez opens up about her life with Anthony and the example she hopes to set for her children. She also touches on her relationship with Sean P.Diddy Combs and Ben Affleck, the diva rumors that surround her and her attitude toward money, fame, and of course, love.

She describes the path that has brought her to her current state of mind. “It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself -- if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”

“I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer,” Lopez tells Vanity Fair. “We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic -- and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

'Lost' Actor, 51, Weds 16-Year-Old

Brand X Pictures/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) -- May-December romances aren't unusual. But when the bride can't yet vote and the groom is eligible to join AARP? That's extreme, even for Hollywood.

Green Mile and Lost actor Doug Hutchison, 51, revealed on Monday that he wed aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden, 16, in May.

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple told E! News in a statement released by their spokesperson. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

Stodden's mother gave parental consent so the two could wed in Las Vegas.

"We are totally supportive of this marriage," Krista Stodden told "Doug is a wonderful man and we love him." She added, "Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl."

So, how did the two get involved? The fact that Stodden is signed to Hutchison's production company, Dark Water, might have something to do with it. A former beauty pageant queen (she competed for the title of Miss Teen Washington USA last year), Hutchinson is trying to make it as a country music crooner.

Celebuzz compiled a variety of her YouTube videos, including one where she talks for nearly seven minutes about overcoming bullying and explains that she wrote the song "Don't Put It On Me" (the video for which features a pink-haired dog) to support victims of bullying.

Character actor Hutchison is probably best known for playing problematic prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile. He also played DHARMA Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed in the TV drama Lost and has appeared in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Guiding Light, The X-Files, and 24.
