Jennifer Lopez: I've "Made Mistakes" With Men, My Kids Stay in the Bronx With Family So They "Get It"
You live, love, and learn. Jennifer Lopez opened up to Elle UK in its October 2014 issue about making mistakes in her high-profile, past relationships and being a single mom to her 6-year-old twins, Emme and Max.
"Is it worth making mistakes, in my case in public, and trying to figure out what you do and balance everything and constantly grow?" Lopez, 45, mused to the British mag. "I'd say yes. None of it is easy, none of it is safe – you are going to get big highs and you are going to get big lows, so it’s not for everyone – but... Read More

It looks like Batman is doing for Ben Affleck what Bourne did for his BFF Matt Damon.
The next man to play Bruce Wayne, Ben, 41, was seen outside of Barney's New York in Beverly Hills on Saturday looking particularly ripped in a tight gray shirt that showed off his new well-toned physique.
Ben's t-shirt sported the logo for IPF — for the Institute of Performance & Fitness — a personal and group training center in North Reading, Mass. (a Boston suburb, near Andover), where Damon's cousin Jamie Damon works. Ben and Matt are both from Boston... Read More

A story set in the Prohibition Era and centered around a group of individuals and their dealings in the world of organized crime.
[to Dee Dee Myers, when asked how people react to his campaigning for candidates he supports] Well, I mean, to be perfectly honest, probably the most effective things that celebrities do for political candidates is raise money. You know, that`s something that you can do. And unlike, say, fund-raisers sponsored by -- you know, engineered by insurance companies or oil companies, at least what you can say for celebrities is they`re not expecting, you know, deregulation of their industry in return. So that`s one of things that I`m, I`ve been able to do and to try to help them do it. Other than that, you know, I`ve lived this sort of strange, sometimes unpleasant, but mostly very lucky life that`s involved lately a lot of media attention. And one of the things that feels good to me to do is to try to steer that in a direction of something more significant and at least be -- try to create some political dialogue. And that`s satisfying. Some people react to me kindly, and others don`t. That`s sort of the nature of politics." [Myers follows up: "Do you think it`s kind of a risk for your career as movie star to get in bed with one party?"] "Unequivocally. Absolutely. And I think that`s why, you know, actually, people say, Well, you see all these celebrities. To my mind, you see very, very few. Most feel like, and probably correctly so, that to be identified with one side of the ideological fence or other risks alienating a segment of your audience that may like your movies, may want to buy your tickets, and in fact, may make it more difficult for them to suspend their disbelief when they go see you in a movie because they have you closely identified with something else. For me, part of that is already compromised, and it`s also something that`s interesting enough for me, and I don`t care quite so much about that kind of image that I`m able to do it. But I think a lot of people shy away from it, and many celebrities you see who`ve gone out there, tried to be active, have gotten pretty beaten down, you know? And so I think there is a risk, yes." [July 27, 2004, quoted in the MSNBC Transcripts]
I`m not the type of guy who enjoys one-night stands. It leaves me feeling very empty and cynical. It`s not even fun sexually. I need to feel something for the woman and entertain the vain hope that it may lead to a relationship.
