No hard feelings in this family! Marc Anthony recently opened up about ex-wife Jennifer Lopez’s much younger beau Casper Smart, and the Latin singer only had nice things to say about the 26-year-old dancer.
“I’m not one to judge,” Anthony told TV host Wendy Williams of Lopez and Smart’s relationship. “I like them young too!” The “I Need to Know” performer recently split from his 22-year-old girlfriend Chloe Green after one year of dating.

But one relationship that hasn’t soured overtime: Anthony and Smart’s, who have gotten along really well since the back-up dancer began dating Lopez in Oct. 2011.
“It’s great. As a matter of fact, we were texting back and forth two days ago,” the “Vivir Mi Vida” singer said about his relationship with the choreographer. “We’re actually really, really good friends. From the very beginning.”
Anthony also appreciates Smart’s relationship with his 5-year-old twins, Max and Emme, his children with Lopez.
“He’s been great to my children. And I have nothing but respect for him, absolutely nothing but respect,” said the 45-year-old.
And that respect also transfers to his former wife of seven years. “When you love someone and you care for someone … Jennifer and I — I don’t say it lightly — we’re great friends,” the pop artist shared. “You know, anybody that means anything to her means something to me.”

Although Anthony’s relationship with Green didn’t work out, the newly single star revealed he would like to get married for a third time (first wife was former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, with whom he has two children).
“I believe in relationships. I believe that God has blessed me in so many ways,” the artist said.
“Material things go but so far. Success goes but so far. But when your house is empty and you don’t have someone to invest in, if you don’t have a witness, it’s almost worthless.”
