Jennifer Lopez is Marie Claire UK's cover star for its December 2015 issue. In the magazine's accompanying interview, the well-known songstress discussed past relationships and her failed marriages.

Lopez's most recent divorce was with her third ex-husband, Marc Anthony, whom she married in 2004 and separated from in 2011, Us Weekly wrote. The ex-couple has 7-year-old twins named Max and Emme.

In her interview with Marie Claire UK, the 46-year-old superstar said that her separation with Marc Anthony made her value her friends more.

"I think I realized they were as important - if not more important - when I divorced Marc," Lopez told the magazine, as quoted by Us Weekly. "I just realized that I had been through that a couple of times and there they still were. Like they say, 'Men come and go, but my girlfriends are always there for me.'"

The "Booty" singer first tried her hand on marriage with Ojani Noa in 2007, with their separation coming a year later, the news outlet noted. She then wed backup dancer Chris Judd after a month-long engagement. Lopez and Judd met on the set of "Love Don't Cost a Thing" in 2001.

This was followed by a relationship with Ben Affleck, whom Lopez was engaged with briefly before ultimately breaking up in January 2004, Us Weekly added. Currently, the "American Idol" judge is dating 28-year-old choreographer Casper Smart.

During the promotion of her book titled "True Love" in November 2014, Lopez explained her views about love and how to make any relationship work.

"A relationship should be supportive, uplift you, it should make you feel confident, feel better, they should be adding to the relationship that's already inside you," she explained, as quoted by ET. "I know for sure that you have to love yourself first. It's a key to life. If you don't love yourself, really nothing is going to go right."

Speaking to Marie Claire UK about her raunchy music video for "Booty," which also features rapper Iggy Azalea, Lopez insisted that the clip was made to appear "beautiful and sexy."

"Sometimes when you're younger, you go for raunch, or shock value, but I don't need to do that," she told the magazine. "I did sexy things but I was always more the good girl who was falling in love as opposed to the naughty girl who was running around."

Lopez is set to kick off her Las Vegas residency titled "All I Have" in January 2016. She will also display her acting chops in the upcoming NBC cop drama, "Shades of Blue."
