London: The 'Maid in Manhattan' star Jennifer Lopez has revealed that laughter is the secret of her successful marriage with singer Marc Anthony.

 The 41-year-old actress who is married for six years now, admitted she fell for Marc for his sense of humour and believes their shared sense of fun has helped them stay together.

"Our secret is being able to laugh together. He's a funny guy - it's what I've always loved about him. We also have a real connection which is based on a lot of love and laughter," said Lopez.

Lopez who has three-year-old twins Max and Emme with Anthony, admitted she is able to connect more with her fans nowadays through social networking sites.

"My friends call me Jen or Jennifer, and my fans call me J-Lo, which I still like very much too. But it's funny with twitter and all these ways to communicate, you kind of feel like your fans are your friends.

"They're much more a part of the process now and I love it. When I did my first album we didn't have anything like that," added Jennifer.
