Want to focus on films, says Jennifer Lopez
London: Singer Jennifer Lopez says she quit as a judge of reality show `American Idol` to focus on her acting career.
A show representative announced last week that Lopez won`t return to the series, but said she had an "amazing run" during her stint.
Lopez says her decision to leave the reality programme was spurred by a renewed interest in film work, reports contactmusic.com.
"I do miss doing films. I feel like the last two years with `American Idol`, I`ve really, really focused on, you know, my music. It was all kind of very synergistic, it worked really well together," said Lopez.
"Movie work is something that I really loved, it`s how I kind of started in this business, and it doesn`t leave you. I am an actress, I need to do that, too," she added.
