A minute with: lopez, banks on expectations when expecting

Business,Business News,Business Opportunities
LOS ANGELES - Jennifer Lopez and Elizabeth Banks - stars of thisFriday's baby comedy movie "What to Expect When You're Expecting"are two Hollywood moms who could not be more different. Lopez is a newly divorced, singer and actress with twin toddlers,Max and Emme, whose busy schedule includes being a judge on TV's"American Idol" and releasing top 40 pop singles. Banks, on the other hand, has had steady career on TV and in filmssuch as recent blockbuster "The Hunger Games." Fourteen months ago,she and her husband Max Handelman welcomed their first child,Felix. While Banks and Lopez did not share any scenes in the film, theycame together to talk with Reuters about the fictional tale basedon the bestselling pregnancy book of the same name.

It followsseveral different couples as they navigate the bumpy road toparenthood. Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Anna Kendrick,Chace Crawford and Matthew Morrison are among the all star cast. Over cappuccinos and sparkling water, Lopez and Banks tradedstories about motherhood and how much they've changed since havinglittle ones come in to their lives. Q: Jennifer, in the film, your character Holly adopts a baby becauseshe and her husband can't have kids. In real life, you werepregnant with twins.

How did you relate to her? Lopez: "Because of how much she wanted a baby. I had wanted a baby when Igot married so badly. I already felt like I had waited too long. Ittook me three years to get pregnant (with ex-husband Marc Anthony)and during those three years, I was like, 'Gosh, maybe this is notgoing to happen.

Maybe this is not meant for me. Maybe my life isabout something else...' So I related to that wanting." Q: Really? You have always projected an image of having everything -success in career, beauty and love. Lopez: "When you've paved this path of being an actress or a singer,people see you and go, 'Oh your life is great and whole andcomplete - and you have money. That's all you need!' The truth is,that's all amazing but you really need that core.

You need life,you need family, you need love. And even though Holly had a greatlife and a great relationship, there was still something missing -that want, that need to have a baby, to have a family, to haveroots. I know what it feels like to want that so badly and finallyget it." Q: Elizabeth, you had baby via a surrogate. In the film, yourcharacter Wendy is pregnant, but it's not a glamorous pregnancy byany means. How did you connect with her issues? Banks: "I was drawn to the authenticity of Wendy's experience.

One of thethings I liked about this movie is that it's not all happy, sugarcoating. It's about the run-up to parenthood, which is scary andemotional and messy. It's a complicating factor in a relationship,no matter what. I loved that I had the opportunity, as Wendy, tosay it like it is.

And be messy and out of control." Lopez: "I think everybody wants to have that perfect pregnancy where youlook like Audrey Hepburn in your flats. I certainly tried. I had myleggings and my black turtleneck. Then someone took a picture of mefrom the back I was like, "IS THAT HOW WIDE I LOOK?!?!?!" On thatsame topic, I always feel like everybody loses their weight sofast, but that is not true! My ribs - I feel like they're juststarting to get back to normal, yet my babies are four." Q: As mothers working in entertainment, do you find your kids'childhoods vastly different from your own rearing? Lopez: "The other day, my daughter put on my sparkling Louboutins that Ihave for shows and a Cartier ring that her dad gave me. I was like,'What are you doing?!' (laughs) We're so fortunate that we have somuch and the kids get some of that.

But I don't want them to growup that fast. I want to them to be like I was in the Bronx, wearingsneakers with holes in them!" Banks: "I rarely buy my son anything, but he's not deprived. He gets lotsof gifts. I'm like, 'We don't need all this stuff.'I'm constantlygetting it out.

It's too much crap." Lopez: "I'm the opposite. I'm like, 'Oh that would be cute for a girl.' Ibuy everything. It's so bad. I still have their cribs in theirroom. They sleep in their bed but their crib is there and I'm like,'I can't get rid of that.

It's so beautiful!' Then I'm like,'They're going to be five soon, it's going to be weird!' Even totake the bassinet out of my room -" Banks: "I still have the bassinet. It's in my guest room, which is reallyweird when people come over to stay. They're like, 'Well you'reclearly having another one.' I'm like, 'I don't know what's gonnahappen, but I can't get rid of this beautiful bassinet!'" Q: How has motherhood changed you? Lopez: "There's a depth of feeling that you have not felt before. But youalso feel guilt and fear deeper. I feel more scared of things nowbecause of my kids.

I feel more worried. Everything's more. I wentjet skiing and flew off the jet ski. I was like, 'I'm a terriblemom! What if I were to die? What would happen to them?' It's thosethings." Banks: "I've lost a full section of my brain power.

It's gone. It's nowdevoted exclusively to him. So even though I'm talking to you,there's a part of my brain that's going, 'Did he eat today? Whereis he? What's he doing?'" Q: Switching topics real quick, Jennifer, you're in your secondseason on "American Idol." Has this experience been everything youhoped it would be when you first agreed to do it? Lopez: "It was an unexpected career move. I always felt like people knewwho I was but I realized they didn't. When I got on the show peoplewere like, 'Oh, she's nurturing, she's a nice person.

She's not thecrazy girl (who demands) white sheets and candles.' 'Idol' letpeople get to know me. It gave people insight in to who I was in apositive way that I didn't expect." Q: How has it impacted you career-wise? Lopez: "When it was first offered it to me, I had my reservations. I lovedoing movies and I was like, 'Is it going to affect how people seeme as a movie actress?' Even my singing. Will that part be over nowthat I'm a judge? But my gut was telling me - just do it.

We hadbeen traveling like crazy with Marc and his tour, so I thought,'You don't have anything for these next six months. It's going tobe fun.' It seemed like the right move at the time for my life.Then it turned out to be something fantastic.".
