Jennifer Lopez - Jennifer Lopez 'Worked Hard' At Marc Anthony Marriage

Jennifer Lopez has broken her silence about the breakdown of her marriage to Marc Anthony, insisting she "really worked hard" to save their relationship.
The singer/actress stunned fans last month (Jul11) after announcing her split from Anthony, the father of her three-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
Lopez reveals she tried desperately to fix her marriage of seven years, and despite their break-up, she still hasn't given up on the idea of finding lasting love.
She tells Vanity Fair magazine, "That (marriage) was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did. Sometimes it doesn't work - and that's sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love.
"It's still my biggest dream... I'm a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love."
And the 42 year old admits her decision to part ways with Anthony came after she realised their relationship was not constructive.
She adds, "It's not that I didn't love myself before. Sometimes we don't realise 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."
