Jennifer Lopez's Divorce Role Hit Close To Home

(Extra) "Extra's" Mario Lopez got to spend time with Jennifer Lopez in Las Vegas for an exclusive sit down interview, where the star opened up about life and love.

Jennifer, admitting that her character in "Parker," a woman struggling through a painful divorce, hit close to home.

Mario asked Jennifer about the role, "I gotta imagine it was a bit therapeutic because at the same time you split with Mark." JLo, "The timing was crazy because when they offered me the role it hadn't happened. So I was kind of just thinking about the character and that she was at the worst time in her life. But, when we actually started shooting the film, I was in the worst time of my life, one of the worst times in my life. You know, going through my own divorce. Jennifer continues, "When you have kids and you go through something like that, you can't show them what you're going through, you know. So you have to be so strong all day…and you know when you're working you have to be professional all day…But, in front of the camera, I got to act like how I felt, you know so it was like therapy for me."

As for Jennifer's relationship with Casper Smart, JLo also admitting she wasn't exactly ready to start dating. Mario, "When you met Beau (Casper) were you at the point where you were like ready to date?" JLo, "Uhhhh I think I was at the point more where I was ready to just kind of relax and have a little fun to be quite just had been months where I was kind of just like hard to get out of bed everyday cause we separated in June, announced it in July. So by the end of the year, I was like you know it's time to go out and have a little bit of fun….You know what I mean, it's time to start picking up the pieces and living your life, you know which is hard after something like that."

Many have questioned whether JLo and Casper will tie the knot. Mario, "Do you think you would need to be married to be happy for the rest of your life?" JLo, "Oh God, you know it's kind of like the fairy tale romance getting married and having that, of course! The most important thing…is that you realize you can be just as happy on your own and you have to actually be that before you can be in a great relationship."

JLo is also well-known for getting along with her ex's, "The truth is those people that have been in my life are people that I cared about and cared about me… Sometimes things don't work out. It's a sad thing but you know what, you keep going and life is to be lived." more on this story
