"I have accomplished a lot of things, and I've seen a lot of things, and I've traveled the world a thousand times. But when I got the official business card that says 'Marc Anthony, Owner, Partner … I stared at it for two days. I'm like, When did this happen?"
Anthony now lives in the Long Island home he bought years ago, before J. Lo., before his first marriage -- to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres -- which also ended in divorce. It's a long way from East Harlem.
When asked if he still loved Lopez, Anthony said, "I'll always love Jennifer. Yes. I'll always love Jennifer. She knows that."
"Jennifer's a wonderful, wonderful woman, a wonderful mother, a wonderful friend, you know. We understand this to be a long story. This is not a short story. "
As to the future, Anthony playfully ducked questions as to whether he was ready to date again.
"That's like asking a boxer in the twelfth round if he's going to retire or not. … He'll always say, 'I'm done. I'm done.' You know what I mean? And then two weeks later is when you ask him," he said.
"So give me two weeks," he added, laughing.
