J.Lo: 'American Idol' Return 'Meant To Be'

Jennifer Lopez is opening up for the first time in a new interview with ET's Mark Steines about her friends Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' recent split.

Lopez, who split last summer from Marc Anthony, tells ET, "I'm sad for them. They're both really lovely people, and just like Marc and I, it's not what you want to happen. You fight and you try until you realize you can't anymore."

She says that she hasn't spoken to Tom or Katie, but she's "thought about it a lot."

"I heard about it when I was in South America and I was stunned," she shares.

She says she's concerned about how the split will affect Tom and Katie's daughter Suri, as well as Tom's two children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella: "You know I just wish them, you know, peace in their decision. And really for Suri and their other children as well, because you become such a family, it's not just Suri, it's Connor and Isabella and everybody, you know, you all become a family. And when that breaks apart, nobody wins, everybody's heartbroken in some way. And I just wish them peace."
