After getting engaged, it seems that everyone wants to offer you a lot of advice, some of which is actually very good. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s marriage advice to Jennifer Lopez falls into that very category. And lucky for us, J.Lo is now sharing the “super wise” tips RBG gave her and Alex Rodriguez. Get ready to take notes.
During her appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday (Sept. 11), Lopez talked about meeting Ginsburg when her tour stopped in Washington. She said she asked the Supreme Court Justice what the secret to a good marriage was. “I admire her so much for all the things she’s done, standing up for minorities and women and fighting for justice in this country, but also for her marriage,” she told GMA.
It’s why she didn’t pass up the opportunity to ask her an important question. “I was there with Alex and I was like, ‘What’s the secret? Tell me something. I’ve been at this for a minute and I need some advice,'” Lopez added. “She was just beautiful and she said, ‘Sometimes it helps to be just a little bit deaf’ — if you hear an unkind word, let it go.’ It was super wise.”
So wise, that it kept the 86-year-old justice’s marriage to her late husband Marty Ginsburg going for over 50 years.
See Lopez in Hustlers when it hits theaters this Friday.
