Marc Anthony's dad told him he was ugly

Marc Anthony's dad used to tell him he was ugly.

The 'Do You Believe In Loneliness' singer - who was married to Jennifer Lopez from 2004 to 2011 - claims his parent helped him to build confidence by criticising his looks when he was growing up.

He told Men's Fitness magazine: ''My dad would tell me, 'Son, I'm ugly and you're ugly - work on your personality'... I think it served me well. I think confidence is a powerful thing.''

Although he's romanced a number of beautiful women over his career - including first wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres - Marc doesn't think of his former girlfriends as ''conquests''.

He added: ''The people I have ended up in relationships with are human beings. They're not conquests

''I think it would be demeaning if I gave some formula I have to meet so many beautiful women.''

Jennifer - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc - has recently spoke about how much hurt she felt following their divorce.

She said: ''I went through a tremendous low. But I wouldn't change anything [about my past] because it made me who I am.''
