J-Lo: I hate being called a cougar.

One of these days, when I get around to writing my upcoming academic tome A History of Romantic Comedy Told Entirely Through Movie-Star Hair, “The Boy Next Door” will likely figure in it.Singer/actress Jennifer Lopez is not a fan of the term “cougar,” which is applied to older women on the prowl for younger men, and insists she isn’t one.

In a plot taken from half of the movies made for the Lifetime or Hallmark cable channels, high school English teacher and part-time voyeur Claire Peterson (Lopez) is dealing with a pending divorce. The “Booty” singer sat down with Us Weekly’s Brody Brown recently to discuss her new movie The Boy Next Door and her current relationship status. When the twins made their worldwide debut in the publication’s March 11, 2008 issue, Lopez was the sole parent to appear on the cover; Anthony, her husband at the time, was shown inside the magazine. And as of now, she tells Us she has no “announcements to make” when it comes to her dating life. “I’m single right now,” Lopez told Us after discussing her new flick. “I think being on my own has been really great for me. Comments that are judged to be defamatory, abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted.

All Claire knows how to do is sit around in skirts slit up to her thigh, drink wine and wonder what ever possessed her to sleep with a boy young enough to be her student. There was a time I was like, ‘Eh, I’m not going to deal with anybody, I just want to be on my own.’ And now, I’m getting back in the mix and stuff like that, but for right now, [I’m single].” Although she’s not attached to anyone romantically in real life, Lopez, 45, could’ve fooled fans with her on-screen chemistry with costar Ryan Guzman in the thriller, in which she plays Claire, a newly divorced mother who falls into the arms of a troubled younger man who becomes obsessed with her after they are romantically involved. “It’s always a little uncomfortable, but it’s part of the game,” Lopez, who shot down rumors she’s dating Guzman, 27, during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week, told Us of their hot and heavy sex scene. “It’s such an important moment because the whole movie is about that moment,” the single mom to twins Max and Emme, 6, adds. “It’s about the chemistry they experience.

But what’s the name for an older guy who’s after younger girls? “I’m not after younger guys; if younger guys like me, that’s one thing, but guys who just go after younger women – they have no label! And Claire is, quite possibly, the most clueless! (Direct quote, from person behind me at screening, as Claire bravely descends into Noah’s scary basement: “Seriously? Barbara Curry’s script starts out like a cable movie, but near the end turns into a cheesy horror film presented with cheap special effects and absurd action moments.

I live next door.” And Lopez’s hair, gloriously silky and perfectly arranged even when she’s in crisis, is a wonder to behold; apparently Claire, who goes on errands wearing strapless dresses and looking curiously like an international pop star, has a freelance hairdresser stashed in the back of the house for touch-ups. I’m going to accept it because I am so afraid that there will be nobody here.’ But I think in our 20s and 30s we’re meant to explore and make a ton of mistakes,” she says. “And then by our 40s we come more full circle and figure things out.” Lopez has forgiven herself for mistakes she made in her youth. In fact, when she thinks about her past boyfriends and husband, the singer is reminded of her naiveté—and her resolve to do better next time. “I would have loved for my marriage in my 20s [to chef Ojani Noa in 1997] to last till I died, but I see that maybe that was too early. I had more things to learn, and he had more things to learn,” the two-time Grammy nominee says. “And [same with] the next person I married [choreographer Cris Judd in 2001].

I believe that two people can commit to each other and share a life together.” She is also thankful for her kids, who “make you believe in all kinds of things, like how anything is possible.”
