When queried about what she would do if she caught someone trying to cozy up to her man, she noted, “First of all, I’m a lover, not a fighter, but I will let them know in a very elegant and lady-like way to step all the way off.”

As OK! previously reported, Lopez has been very vocal about her love and devotion for the famous actor, as she recently released her movie This Is Me...Now: A Love Story, on Tuesday, February 13, which is a visual representation of her new album This Is Me...Now that is inspired by her romance with Affleck.

The celeb recently revealed 15-year-old twins Emme and Max's reactions to the project.

"I was talking to my kids about this, and then they're like, 'Which parts are real and which parts are not?' And I said, 'You will think some parts are real that are not. And then some parts you don't think are real, are real,'" Lopez shared.

"It seems like a fairytale, but it really wasn't. And so I really wanted to tell that part of the story. The real story, in a way, but not my autobiographical story," she explained. "It was kind of exciting and terrifying to explore all of it."

"But for the first time, I felt really compelled to do something that wasn't about anything except wanting to do something, like art for art's sake, and that's why I did it myself," she said.
