Jennifer Lopez, who shares twins Max and Emme with ex Marc Anthony disclosed to Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday what her kids thought of the depiction of her love story with Ben Affleck. “I was talking to my kids about this, and they're like, ‘Which parts are real and which parts are not?’ and I said, ‘You will think some parts are real that are not. And then some parts you don't think are real, are real.’” 

She added, “But it inspired a lot of things I went through and it's really about what it has been for me to be a hopeless romantic my whole life, and some of the pitfalls of that.”

Jennifer Lopez’ ninth studio album titled This Is Me…Now is all set to be released on Friday, February 16. Speaking to ET about the making of her upcoming album, Lopez said, “The album that I made was very honest, about kind of wanting to capture this moment in time of reconnecting with a love.” 

The album, like her film, also is based on her rekindled romance with the Gone Girl star. Speaking of the same, Lopez revealed that talking about her marriage to Affleck was scary but it still did not stop her from being “authentic and real.” 

She continued, “It seems like a fairytale, but it really wasn't. And I really wanted to tell that part of the story. The real story, in a way, but not my autobiographical story. It was kind of exciting and terrifying to explore all of it.”
