Cameron, your body looks great, even though you’re supposed to be pregnant in this. How do you keep looking so good?

Cameron: It’s called consistency. You have to be consistent with fitness, but what was fun about that part was that I love to work out. It’s something I enjoy doing. I think it’s important to take care of your body, not just for today, but for the rest of your life.

I stay fit because I want to be sixty doing all the things I’m doing now, and so I like to stay strong.

After doing this movie what do you think now about adopting?

Jennifer: It’s funny because before the movie, I never really thought about adoption at all. I just always wanted to have my own baby and I was so focused on that, it took me awhile to have my own.

But during the making of the film when I held those two little Ethiopian twins, I fell in love instantly and it occurred to me, I can see how it is so easy to embrace a child who has nothing.

It’s really a beautiful selfless act of love, and it’s something that you go, ‘Okay, I understand these feelings, I get this, I know how this happens.’

Cameron, Matthew Morrison said that you flashed your prosthetic breasts for him.

Cameron: (She laughs) He got to see my prosthetic breasts, which were really amazing! I was like, ‘Wow! Those are awesome.’ But I was in the Atlanta heat, so I aged about forty years by the end of two hours, they were literally hanging down to my hips!

Jennifer, between American Idol, your tour and the movie, what is your philosophy as a single working mother?

Jennifer: First, all you do really care about is not messing up the baby part. I just want them to be okay, and so that comes first for me and then everything else falls into line after that.

That’s my philosophy, so as long as that is working in the right way, then I can dedicate whatever time I need to dedicate to my career.

I just take it one day at a time. I have a lot of great people in my life, who help in all those areas in work and at home. I have a great family, so all together we do it, it takes a village.

It’s just like any single working mom’s plight, that there is the guilt that comes along with it. You leave and they are like, “Don’t go to work mommy,’ and you are like, ‘Yep, almost every day.’

So it’s a juggling act and you do the best you can and say no when you have to say no.

Have you signed on for next year’s American Idol?

Jennifer: I have not signed on yet, no.

Are you are going to do it?

Jennifer: We usually do that later on, but I’m not sure.
