Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of the October 2014 U.K. edition of Elle and in the magazine's cover story, the 45-year-old singer and actress admits that she's made some mistakes in her dating life.

While talking with the magazine (quotes via Us Weekly), the 'American Idol' judge talked about her past celebrity relationships, including romances with Sean 'Diddy Combs, Ben Affleck and her marriage to Marc Anthony.

"Is it worth making mistakes, in my case in public, and trying to figure out what you do and balance everything and constantly grow?" Lopez asked. "I'd say yes. None of it is easy, none of it is safe. You are going to get big highs and you are going to get big lows, so it’s not for everyone, but that's exciting. You just need to believe in yourself."

She also believes that the despite not finding that everlasting love, it's still out there for her. "I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he’s out there somewhere. But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything. Every single album I have ever made is about love. But I am not going to give up. I’ve got to hope that if I keep going, I will eventually get it right."

The issue hits newsstands on Sept. 4. Meanwhile, Lopez can be seen once again as a judge on 'American Idol' when Season 14 premieres on January 14, 2015.
