JENNIFER Lopez "never thought" her butt would "look small."
The 45-year-old singer is proud of her curvy figure, but can't believe having a larger derriére has "become such a phenomenon."
The 'Booty' hitmaker said: "There's been a movement this year about being womanly - not having to be skinny or starve yourself. I don't fan-out over people's body parts. I mean, I've admired a man's abs once or twice, but I'm not checking out girls' butts. Still, it's become such a phenomenon. You see these girls who just make me look small. I never thought I would say that in my lifetime!"
Jennifer claims she is no longer obsessed with working out but still exercises with Tracy Anderson five times a week.

She told Us Weekly's annual Hot Bodies issue: "You hit a stride where your spirit, mind and body all come together. I work out, but I'm not as much of a fanatic as I used to be. And, funnily enough, I feel like I'm in better shape now.
"Some people are told they're too heavy or too thin or too tall or short, but at the end of the day you have to appreciate who you are. I'm not a 6-foot-tall model. I'm not size 2. And when I came to Hollywood, that's what the world was filled with. I was fine being me and I think that changed a lot of people's thinking."
But the actress, who is trying to pass on her healthy eating habits to her seven-year-old twins, Max and Emme, rarely cheats on her diet.
She said: "When I haven't done it in a while, I'll indulge in dessert. I'll eat cookies, but I'll have one or two and I'm fine. I don't go crazy."
