New Recipe: Jennifer Lopez, 51, shares that she works out ‘harder and smarter’ now than she did in her 20s

Jennifer Lopez has managed to maintain her enviable curves even as she approaches 52.

But the Hustlers actress has shared with InStyle Magazine that she is not working out more these days, just in a more calculated way that has resulted in a better sculpted frame.

‘I’m in the best shape of my life. In my 20s and 30s I used to work out but not like I do now. It’s not that I work out more; I just work out harder and smarter. And it doesn’t take me as long as it did in the past,’ said the mother to twins Max and Emme.

The former Fly Girl is reportedly 5ft5in, about 139lbs, with a 26inch waistline.

The conversation began when her ex-fiance Ben Affleck told the publication, ‘Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?’

Lopez – whose next film is Marry Me with Owen Wilson – replied: ‘I don’t have any [beauty] secrets except JLo Beauty — and I’m giving them all to everyone with every product. Ben is funny! He still looks pretty good too.’

That is when the Jenny From The Block singer said: ‘I also think I’m in the best shape of my life.

Jennifer insisted she does not work out every day for vanity but rather to feel her best.

‘I do it more for my health than I do for looks, which is funny. When you do things for the right reasons, you actually look better!’ shared the Bronx native.

In 2019 her personal trainer shared that she does ab raises, push ups, crunches, lunges, and she uses weight machines on her legs. 

Also in article, which included quotes from several of her friends, Ryan Seacrest discussed J-Lo’s eating habits.

They two worked together on American Idol from 2011 to 2016.

‘Jennifer is obviously in great shape. She stays fit, she works out, but she eats what she wants, and I deprive myself. 

‘And she said, “Why are you depriving? Just have a bite of the cookie, Ryan. You don’t have to have the whole cookie.” And so I live my life now trying to think about having a bite of the cookie, not the whole cookie. It’s not going so well.’

Lopez replied to his quote: ‘One day I’m going to let everyone in on my secret cookie recipe. It came from a secret couple, and these cookies are my favorite. Someday I’ll give you the J-dough! And, actually, I think that’s what I’ll call it!’

He is still a big fan: Ben noted that Jennifer had an incredible work ethic and doesn't seem to age; the two were together from 2002 until 2004. Seen in 2003

Though there were over a dozen pals who talked to the magazine about Jenny – including Michelle Obama and Charlize Theron – her current fiance Alex Rodriguez did not.  

And the Bronx bombshell was also not wearing the $1M diamond engagement ring A-Rod presented to her in 2019.

Alex is not included in the story at all, and even more telling may be that she left off the $1M diamond engagement ring the sportscaster presented to her on a beach in 2019.

Instead, she models rings from Tiffany & Co. 

But a source told PageSix that A-Rod’s absence from the cover story is not a sign the two are on the outs: ‘This is absolutely not true, and reading into this when there is little knowledge of the background is misleading.’

Rumblings of trouble between Jennifer and Alex began last month when the same site said they had been arguing for months and would announce a split in the very near future.

The split announcement never came and instead Alex flew to the Dominican Republic where Jennifer has been shooting Shotgun Wedding with Josh Duhamel.

The pair were even seen kissing on a lounge chair while in their bathrobes in photos obtained by DailyMail.com.    

The InStyle issue is impressive with several images of the star in a swimsuit as well as a white tank top as she walks on a beach. 

That incredible rock: Seen in 2017 with Alex as she flashed her rock in Hallandale Beach, Florida; she did not wear the ring during her InStyle shoot
