The Number One Jennifer Lopez Fansite
Jennifer Lopez is a Puerto Rican actress and singer, also widely known for her sex symbol image, as well as her relationships and other business ventures. In 2008 she gaved birth to twins, fathered by husband Marc Anthony. Interestly, in 2004 she starred in Jersey Girl where she played a character who dies during childbirth. Lopez is known for her clean and family oriented image as much as she is for her status as a poster girl. Many women look up to her for her stylish yet subtle dress sense, which she usually shows off in a backless evening dress, or a more conservative gown on the red carpet.
Lopez made her debut in film with a small role in My Little Girl in 1986 at the age of 16. She landed a regular role as a Fly Girl on the Wayans Brothers' popular sketch show In Living Color from 1991-1993, a show which also gave Jim Carrey the platform he needed to move into Hollywood. Lopez had further small film roles in the 90s, including the Francis Ford Coppolla directed Jack, also starring Robin Williams. Then, in 1997 she earned critical acclaim for her title role in the biopic Selena. The film is about the Mexican-American singer-songwriter Selena Quintanilla who was shot dead in 1995 by the president of her fan club in a motel room during a confrontation over money issues.
Lopez followed this up with the likes of the Steven Soderbergh directed thriller Out of Sight, also starring George Clooney, in 1998 and in the same year provided the voice for the lead female ant, Azteca, in the computer animated Antz, alongside Woody Allen and Sylvester Stallone.
In 1999 she began her successful music career, releasing her debut studio album, entitled On the 6. Her second album, J.Lo was released in the same week as her film The Wedding Planner, which also starred Matthew McConaughey and both album and film went to number one in the same week. Other music albums include J to the L-O! The Remixes in 2002, which was a remix of her previous album, This is Me...Then (2002), Rebirth (2005) and in 2007 Como Ama una Mujer. Other film roles include Maid in Manhattan, Jersey Girl (where she wore Maternity Clothing before her character's death) and another voice performance in Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Lopez has garnered much public attention throughout her career, including high profile relationships with the likes of Sean 'P Diddy' Combs and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck. She has also been named as the inspiration of such female stars as Jessica Alba and Selena Gomez. Famously, at the 2000 Grammy Awards, Lopez, accompanied by her then boyfriend Combs, wore a plunging green Versace dress, the neck of which plunged several inches below her naval.
In 2004 Lopez married for the third time to Marc Anthony and has two children. In 2012 she embarked on her Dance Again World Tour, while also revealing plans for a new studio album in 2013, when she is also starring in crime thriller Parker with Jason Statham. Lopez's net worth is estimated at $250 million.
