NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Lopez tells Vanity Fair magazine that she still believes in love despite her split from her husband of seven years, Marc Anthony.
The singer and actress gave the publication her first interview since announcing her divorce earlier this month.
Lopez says she is an "eternal optimist" and describes love as her "biggest dream."
The 42-year-old, who has had a string of high-profile relationships, says she's learned to walk away from something when it isn't right.
One thing Lopez says she and Anthony do right is work together, saying "together we make magic."
The couple has two children, twins Max and Emme.
The September issue of Vanity Fair goes on sale nationwide Aug. 9.
