Jennifer Lopez hopes to naturally  age gracefully, but the 42-year-old doesn't count out a little nip and tuck along the way if she thinks it is necessary. In a new interview with Jane Fonda, the "On the Floor" singer and actress revealed she is "open to being open" about plastic surgery. "Honestly, I'm not going to make a judgement on it because I don't have to yet,"Lopez said "I mean, I'd like to think I'll feel great about myself and age gracefully, but then I think: "Well, what if I do want a little bit of something? I'm open to being open." For right now, the mother of twins says she's happy with the way she looks. She even admitted to firing someone who tried to make her think otherwise. She admitted, earlier in her career, she fired her manager, who told her she should lose weight.  "I was just so infuriated that somebody said you couldn't have a little extra meat on you - because I was by no means fat!" she said in the interview. "That was so mean and closed-minded. I was like,'No, this is who I am, and this is the type of woman that I grew up with, and it was beautiful and there's no reason to be anybody but myself." She adds that now, people "know better" than to tell her to lose weight.
