Jennifer Lopez has revealed she's thrilled that women are landing good acting roles regardless of their age these days.

The 40-year-old star - who will next be seen in romantic comedy Back-Up Plan - thinks it's "a great time to be an actress".

She said: "It seems like you can work and do anything at any age... It's a great time that people are just seeing people's souls. It's not so superficial any more. Women have proven that they are viable in this business, as well, and it doesn't matter if you're not 21 years old. It just matters that you're great at what you do. And that's exciting."

The star's latest film - about a woman who decides not to wait for Mr Right to start a family - sees her returning to the rom-com genre that made her a bankable movie star with films such as Maid In Manhattan and Shall We Dance.

"Love is an endlessly fascinating subject for me," noted J-Lo, who has twins with hubby Marc Anthony.

"I love to watch movies in bed with Marc - romantic comedies, much to his chagrin. He doesn't love them, but he puts up with it. Those are our date nights."
