We're not sure you should take this parenting advice!
Musician Marc Anthony — who was married to Jennifer Lopez from 2004 to 2011 — claims his dad helped him build confidence by criticizing the way he looked growing up.
The "Do You Believe in Loneliness" singer told Men's Fitness magazine: "My dad would tell me, 'Son, I'm ugly and you're ugly — work on your personality'...I think it served me well. I think confidence is a powerful thing."
"I Like Them Young Too": Marc Anthony Comments On Ex Jennifer Lopez's Much Younger Beau
And based on his past lady loves, it appears to have worked for him! But although he's romanced a number of beautiful women over his career — including first wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres — Marc doesn't think of his former girlfriends as "conquests."
He added, "The people I have ended up in relationships with are human beings. They're not conquests. I think it would be demeaning if I gave some formula I have to meet so many beautiful women."
Jennifer — who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc — recently opened up about the pair's separation three years ago.
"I went through a tremendous low. But I wouldn't change anything [about my past] because it made me who I am," she said.
Despite the pain of their split, the two are now on great terms and Marc can't help but compliment Jennifer's younger beau, Casper Smart.
"He's been great to my children. And I have nothing but respect for him, absolutely nothing but respect," the 45-year-old previously said of the back-up dancer.
