‘I grew up with holes in my shoes’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Amer­i­can singer-ac­tor Jen­nifer Lopez (right) can af­ford the best of la­bels to­day, but she hasn’t for­got­ten her modest roots of grow­ing up in The Bronx neigh­bour­hood of New York. The ac­tor has said in the past that she had to share a bed­room with her two sis­ters dur­ing their grow­ing up days.

Lopez who has just come out with her new shoe col­lab­o­ra­tion with Giuseppe Zan­otti said, “I grew up with holes in my shoes. So this is very spe­cial to me, to be able to cre­ate such beau­ti­ful shoes with an artist like Giuseppe,” said Lopez. “He gets me. I get him, and that’s why he’s a ge­nius,” she added.

“I just love what I do. I feel very for­tu­nate. To now be here launch­ing my own shoe col­lec­tion with an amaz­ing artist, and be­ing able to work with great peo­ple, and do what I love, that’s where I get my stamina. I live with a lot of grat­i­tude,” she said. As Jen­nifer bal­ances her work and fam­ily, some won­der how she man­ages it.

She said, “My fam­ily is my sta­bil­ity. They’re so solid for me. When you think of shoes you think of be­ing grounded. There was a con­nec­tion there for me. They keep me grounded.”

The ac­tor re­cently con­firmed her re­la­tion­ship with Amer­i­can rap­per Drake. The two shared a cosy pic­ture after New Years.
