Jennifer Lopez: 'I went grey at 23'

Jennifer Lopez has admitted that her hair began going grey when she was just 23.

The American Idol judge said that the pressure of working in the film industry turned the colour of her tresses.

Lopez said on a US radio show: "My mum and my dad both went grey at a young age and I did too. At 23! Once I got started doing movies, I started to [go] grey."

She joked: "It was the stress, the pressure."

The 41-year-old also explained that she felt "honoured" to be voted People magazine's 'Most Beautiful Woman In The World' this week.

She commented: "I'm not 20 years old anymore, so I was very excited about it.

"When I was told about it, I was like, 'What?' But it's obviously very flattering. It's a great honour to be talked about in that way."

The mum-of-two added: "Since I've been married, seven years this year, people don't really compliment me anymore.

"But girls do. I love girls and I love my girlfriends… I'm always very friendly towards women."


Pshh, only 23? I found my first grey hair when I was 16 during AS Levels. Stupid exams.
