Jennifer Lopez Biography

Birthdate: July 24, 1970


Jennifer Lopez's Acting Roots

Jennifer Lopez got her big break in '91 when she was cast as a "Fly Girl" dancer on the TV show In Living Color. In 1995 Jennifer Lopez did two movies, Mi Familia and Money Train, but it was '97's Selena that made her a star. Jennifer Lopez's Latino heritage made her perfect for the part and directors began to take notice of her acting ability. The story was a biography of Latino singing sensation Selena who was murdered by a crazed fan. Jennifer Lopez has since appeared in Anaconda, Blood and Wine, U-Turn and Out of Sight with George Clooney. Since then J.Lo has starred in a ton of flicks, including Enough, The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan, Gigli (with on-again, off-again finace, Ben Affleck) and Jersey Girl.


Jennifer Lopez - Pop Icon

In 1999 Jennifer Lopez released her first album On the 6 named after the subway train that links Manhattan and the Bronx. The album was a great success with the help of chart-toppers like If You Had My Love and Waiting For Tonight. If Jennifer Lopez wasn't already a household name, she certainly was when she released her CD J.Lo, which included hits like Love Don't Cost A Thing. J.Lo's latest album, This Is Me...Then, reassures fans that although Jenniefer Lopez is a huge star, at heart she is still Jenny From the Block.

Read 'One of Us Is Lying' by Karen McManus. Also the Ranger's Apprentice (John Flanagan) books are good.

One of the BEST books I've ever read was Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger. It's an ongoing series and book 6 is about to be realeased. If you like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, read this book.
