The Daily Mail shared the content of the interview between the magazine and the pop superstar in a previous article. In the interview, she talked about her 'relentless drive' which ended up making her one of the most influential women in the entire world. 

The 'Maid In Manhattan' actress looked beautiful in a beaded gown as she described how she has remained so strong throughout the years.

"I never let anyone pigeonhole me, I never let anyone put me in a box."

Sitting on a stool with full hair and makeup done most likely in between shoots for the magazine, the singer-actress was blunt about how she viewed her decades long career.

"I wanted to be THE girl, not the Latin girl."

JLo added that although it was her hit song, she did not let people just see her as 'Jenny From The Block'.

"I never let anyone put me in a box, and every step of the way people try to do that to you, especially if you're a woman."

Despite being a world-famous singer and actress, not a lot of people know that JLo has been producing behind the scenes, in TV shows 'Shades of Blue' and 'World Of Dance' among others. 

"People don't realize I ave been producing for about - oh my God, for about 10 years now!"

She also produced a film 'Second Act', which is set to premiere later this year.

While people have claimed that the reason JLo works so hard is for the fortune and fame, she disagrees.

"It's a hunger not from an ambition of wanting more, it's an ambition of passion of doing what I love and seeing how many great things I can do in that sense."

Jennifer is both honored and humbled to be chosen as one of the covers of Time magazine's most influential list.
