Ever since Jennifer Lopez started dating her (second) back up dancer, Casper Smart, people have slammed the young non-celebrity and often compared him to the singer’s famous exes—which includes veteran rapper P. Diddy, famed Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, “Sexiest Man Alive” Bradley Cooper and her last husband and baby daddy, Marc Anthony, among others.

But don’t be fooled because Lopez actually shares a special romance and friendship with her sexy boy toy.

After describing him as a “fantastic” boyfriend (and dance choreographer on her concert tours), Jennifer told Harper’s Bazaar:

“He’s like my best friend. I can tell him everything, when I’m feeling down, when I’m feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love and support.”

Also in the interview, she talked about her 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, who are always with her on tour:

“They are used to being around a lot of people. They’re open, happy, curious, smart, loving, affectionate. They’re rambunctious.”

As for why she left “American Idol”, Jennifer admitted:

“I’m not a judge for a living. I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing. It makes me a better parent, a better person.”

She continued:

“I think I can just handle more than the average bear, you know?”

Lopez, who obviously has a thing with nip slip-prone dresses with dangerously plunging necklines, also brought up her infamous Versace gown from the 2000 Grammy Awards that showed off almost everything down to her belly button. She revealed:

“I have that at home. The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done. She sent me a picture. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um, yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house!”

And although it exposed most of his girlfriend’s front bod, Casper proudly beamed at Jennifer:

“But it’s famous! It’s the most famous dress you’ve ever worn!”

Definitely sounds like a gay best friend to us!
