Back in a 2020 conversation with Oprah Winfrey, she opened up about her thoughts after getting divorced from Anthony. She took a second thought on her then-relationship stating, “I waited to have kids.”

“I had kids when I was 38. I never wanted to not be with the person I had kids with. When [Marc Anthony and I] got divorced it was the lowest time of my life,” the actress said at that time.

She had a hard time going through her divorce and doubted herself as she had no idea about her next step.

“I felt like I had failed miserably. And that I was not going to give my kids what they needed, and I just didn’t know what to do. So, I had to regroup at that time.”

She, later on, revealed that she always thought that children would need both their mother and father to get proper love and care. Being a single mother and handling the tasks by herself was what she was initially reluctant about. However, she later on accepted to “love” herself and “be OK on my own.” 

Self-love indeed played a key role in finding her true love. Even in the latest interview with Vogue, she did give huge credit to her self-love that made her relationship with the Gone Girl actor possible.
