Jennifer Lopez on why she quit American Idol

Jennifer Lopez has revealed why she quit American Idol – because she misses acting.

The AI team are having to find a new judge (Adam Lambert please) because J-Lo wants to get back to making movies.

“I do miss doing films. I feel like the last two years with ‘American Idol’, I’ve really, really focused on, you know, my music,” she said.

“It was all kind of very synergistic, it worked really well together.

“[Movie work] is something that I really loved, it’s how I kind of started in this business, and it doesn’t leave you. I am an actress, I need to do that, too.”
