1 hour, 34 minutes ago
NEW YORK - With two marriages behind her and a third planned, Jennifer Lopez (news) knows she's been compared to the oft-wedded Elizabeth Taylor (news). And she's fine with that.
"I'm not mad if people call me the modern-day Liz Taylor," Lopez tells InStyle magazine for its January issue. She even has a book on her coffee table about Taylor, who's been married eight times.
"We've all had a love of our life and failed love affairs. I'm just the biggest romantic — it's really sad," Lopez says. "I tell people that but nobody listens. They're too busy writing about the thread count they think I demand."
Lopez's first two marriages, to waiter-model Ojani Noa and dancer Cris Judd, lasted about a year each. Now the 32-year-old singer-actress is engaged to Ben Affleck (news), with whom she co-stars in the upcoming movies "Jersey Girl" and "Gigli."
