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.

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.
