The time for playing existential games - for messing about with life - is over, Jennifer Lopez, 43, says. "I'm not a young girl anymore who can throw caution to the wind," the thrice-divorced actor, singer, and superceleb tells People in a chat about the implosion of her marriage to Marc Anthony.

"I'm making decisions for three . . . I'm Mama Bear," says J-Lo, referring to her twins with Marc, Maximilian David and Emme Maribel, who turn 5 on Feb. 22. (J-Lo and Marc made a nifty, record-breaking $6 mil selling post-birth photos of the twins to People.)

The twins are old enough to ask probing questions about their parents' split-up, J-Lo says. "It's brutal. They'll say, 'Didn't Daddy used to live here? When is he coming back to sleep here?' "

J-Lo, who previously wed and dumped Ojani Noa ('97-'98) and Cris Judd ('01-'03), was devastated by her split from Marc. She "felt like my whole world had fallen apart," she says.

J-Lo says her current mate, Casper Smart, "helped me heal." She's not bothered that he's oft been mocked for being 18 years younger than she. "I ask him, 'Why don't you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here?' " J-Lo jokes.

"We're loving this moment right now. We make each other happy."

Al Pacino to play Joe Paterno

Dressed to Kill director Brian De Palma will direct Al Pacino in a drama about former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, reports. Tentatively titled Happy Valley, the pic will be based on former Sports Illustrated columnist Joe Posnanski's best-seller, Paterno.

Paterno faced scandal and disgrace when former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was charged with dozens of counts of child sexual abuse committed over many years. Paterno reportedly was aware of the situation but did little to stop it.

Bree Olson's smile, bod grace I-95

Did you glimpse a Godzilla-sized image of sexpot Bree Olson while driving on I-95? It wasn't the magic mushrooms: Bree, 26, a former porn star who rose (sank) to prominence (into the pit) when she, um, liaised, with Charlie Sheen in an X-rated hotel party in 2011, is featured in a billboard ad for online dating site, which describes itself as "the world's most popular dating site for women seeking millionaires." Bree was signed as the site's spokesbod because of her "proven ability to procure mutually beneficial arrangements with successful older men." Located along I-95 between the Girard Avenue and Allegheny exits, the billboard is the first in an ad campaign soon to sweep Philly, then the rest of the country. Heaven help us all.

Simon Cowell nabs his next hitmaker

Simon Cowell, who molded five X Factor hopefuls into mega-band One Direction, is trying his hand at engineering another monstrous hit-making machine.

This time, they're all girls. Cowell constructed Fifth Harmony in the second season of his talent show, and now he's signed the teens - Ally Brooke, 19; Camila Cabello, 15; Normani Hamilton, 16; Dinah Jane Hansen, 15; and Lauren Jauregui, 16 - to his record label.

Kim Kardashian: Finish the divorce!

For a gal trying (she says) to avoid the spotlight, Kim Kardashian sure has been all over the media this week. In the latest instance, the reality princess, who is carrying Kanye West's baby, tells XM Radio's Sway in the Morning Show that she's eager for her divorce war with Kris Humphries to end.

Kim says, most emphatically, that the couple's relationship, mega-million-dollar wedding, and 72-day marriage were not a publicity stunt. "He's . . . suing me for an annulment." Kris claims that she committed fraud. "Who would ever do that?" Kim says. "It's just not who I am."
