Jennifer Lopez says her friendships are ''priceless''.

The singer-and-actress really values her relationships with her girlfriends because they are there for her no matter what.

She said: ''Oh my God, my girlfriends are everything to me. They celebrate with you, they cry with you, they hold you when you need to be held. They laugh with you. They're mean with you! They're just always there, and it's just a priceless thing to have.''

Although Jennifer - who has five-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony - is often voted one of the world's most beautiful women, she says physically attractiveness doesn't make someone interesting.

She told Glam Belleza Latina magazine: ''People praise me for being physically pretty. You can think, That's who I am. But who you really are is all the messy, complex stuff. That makes you more interesting.''

Jennifer - who is now dating dancer Casper Smart - also says she values her individuality and likes being able to stand out from the crowd.

She said: ''I am confident. It doesn't mean I don't have my moments. But you have to remember the value of your individuality - that you have something special and different to offer that nobody else has.''
