Jennifer Lopez defends people who practice Scientology and says that her dad has practiced Scientology for the past 20 years.
NBC 6's Jackie Nespral asked the singer and actress about her friend, actress Leah Remini, a devout Scientologist, and if she too is interested in the religion.
"I'm not a scientologist, I was raised Catholic," Lopez said. "But it's funny the way people come at it. To me it's so strange. These are some of the best people I've ever met in my life. You know, they're just lovely, genuine people. They way they ask is such a, 'Uh, are you (a scientologist)?' It's such a negative thing and I just don't see it that way."
Lopez attended the Scientology nuptials of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' in Italy in November. "It was a great celebration of their love … It was beautiful" Lopez said of the much-publicized event.
In Part II of Lopez's interview with Nespral, Lopez reveals why her marriage to musician Marc Anthony is the real thing, why she's a big fan of Miami and what she's doing for the Super Bowl.
