Apparently, Jennifer Lopez is moving on from her relationship to Marc Anthony as she tells Vanity Fair that she still believes in love. The mother of 3 year old twins, Max and Emme gave the first interview after the announcement of her divorce from Marc Anthony to Vanity Fair, the September 2011 issue, where she shares her vision of life.

After 3 failed marriages, Jennifer Lopez is still holding on strong as she says she truly believes in love. Jennifer told the magazine that “(love) it’s still my biggest dream”, so it seems that the end of her relationship to Marc, the father of her children, isn’t bringing Jen down. Being an amicable split, the pop star isn’t throwing any dirt at her husband and even decides to underline that they did everything they could to salvage their marriage.

Looking forward to future challenges, the Hollywood diva is not shy about proving her strength and optimism and tells the magazine that: “I really worked hard at it (marriage). We both did. Sometimes it doesn’t work; and that’s sad, but I remain an eternal optimist about love. I am positive; determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”

The exact reason which lead to this shocking decision between Jennifer and Marc, to get a divorce, is still unknown, but rumors say it that it was Marc’s extreme jealousy that rocked their marriage to pieces. Rumors say that Anthony was being envious and controlling and even went as far as having a final say over Jennifer’s wardrobe choice, but Jennifer doesn’t confirm these details. Instead, she tells the magazine that:

“Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now. I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

In the interview Jennifer also opens up about her ex relationships that have gone sour, especially her relationship to P. Diddy and Ben Affleck. Check out the entire pictorial which shows Jennifer’s sexy and powerful style as well as the rest of her interview in the September issue of Vanity Fair.
