Unlike her character in the new movie “Monster-in-Law,” Jennifer Lopez says she’s never had any trouble with the mothers of the men she’s dated.

“I’ve never really had any trouble with boyfriends’ moms or any moms of anybody that I’ve been with,” Lopez told reporters recently, according to AP Radio. “So, I’ve been lucky. They like me.”

After her much publicized romances with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Ben Affleck, Lopez wed Marc Anthony in June 2004. She was previously married to Cris Judd and Ojani Noa.

In “Monster-in-Law,” which opens Friday, Jane Fonda plays a mother trying to sabotage the upcoming nuptials of her son, played by Michael Vartan, and Lopez.

Lopez and Fonda’s characters literally come to blows.

“We wound up slapping each other a lot,” Lopez told reporters. “I did get her bad in the eye. ... She said with my ring. I don’t even remember doing it to her. ... That happened after doing it a few times. ... But my face was swollen, you could see it, I think, in one of the takes.”
