The actor talked about how ruthless the media can be at times, before recalling how badly they treated his ex.

He said, "People were so fu**ing mean about her — sexist, racist."

"Ugly, vicious sh*t was written about her in ways that if you wrote it now you would literally be fired for saying those things you said."

"Now it's like, she's lionised and respected for the work she did, where she came from, what she accomplished — as well she fu**ing should be!"

"I would say you have a better shot, coming from the Bronx, of ending up as like [Justice Sonia] Sotomayor on the Supreme Court than you do of having Jennifer Lopez's career and being who she is at 50 years old today."
