Jennifer Lopez wishes she could protect her children from having famous parents
(CNN) – Jennifer Lopez takes pity on her 15-year-old twins for having to grow up with famous parents.
The artist was Max and Amy with her ex-husband, singer and actor Marc Anthony, recently Talk to “Audacity” about them during a panel discussion to promote the movie “The Mother” on Netflix.
In it, Lopez plays an assassin who comes out of hiding to protect the son she left years ago. When asked on “Audacy” if there was anything she wished she could protect her children from, she replied, “Everything.”
“I think being the son of famous parents is not something a lot of people can understand, and I’m sorry (to my kids) about that, because they didn’t choose to,” Lopez said.
The superstar singer and actress added that she is just beginning to have conversations with her teenage children about how other people treat them.
“When they walk into a room, people think that,” Lopez said. “They don’t see them as who they are and I think that must be very difficult for them, so I’d like to be able to protect them from that.”
Lopez also noted that while everyone is subject to bullying, “being judged by people you don’t even know in a way that I think is really hard for them to grow up and be themselves. They know there’s a lens on them and that’s hard”.
He said, “I did it to them.” “As mothers, we feel guilty for what we have done and given their lives.”
“The Mother” is available on Netflix.
