46-year-old singer and actress Jennifer Lopez got candid with Entertainment Tonight (ET) about maintaining her priorities and looks while featuring in her first TV series, Shades of Blue.
For her, maintaining beauty is compulsory.
J. Lo said, “There is a limit. You will fall down at a certain point, and mommies can’t do that. Mommies have to be good for the babies at all times. They need to know that you’re solid and strong and good. Sleep is very important. I get my seven to eight hours sleep no matter what.” Getting some time for adequate rest became trickier for the superstar when she films Shades of Blue.
J.Lo is featured in the series as single mother Detective Harlee Santos, who also gets involved with a ‘tight-knit group of dirty cops.’ The shares are raised when she gets forced to work with the FBI’s counter-corruption task force and betray the corrupt cops on her own group.
When the days on set are over, the actress switches mode from ‘serious actor mode’ to ‘mommy mode’ just as she heads home in order to spend some quality time with her 7-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian.
Lopez added, “I have to see them because if I don’t see them and they don’t see me, then it’s not happiness. Like, this morning I had to work out, then I sit down and I have lunch with them before I come over here and then I go, ‘You know what? Since we’re shooting all the way through, I’ll have the kids come over at 6:30. They can bring me dinner because we had some leftovers.’ Every day is like that!”
Between the long working hours and the time she takes out for her kids, Jennifer Lopez accepted that she has had less time to stay in the gym however, she will be in ‘tiptop shape’ for her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood’s AXIS Theater.
