Who Is Jennifer Lopez? (Biography)
Jennifer Lopez, real name Jennifer Lynn Affleck, by name J.Lo, is an American singer, actress, and dancer. She was born on July 24, 1969 in Bronx New York, U.S.
American actress and musician who began appearing in films in the late 1980s and quickly became one of the highest-paid Latina actresses in the history of Hollywood.
In 1991, she began appearing as a Fly Girl dancer on the sketch comedy television series In Living Color, where she remained a regular until she decided to pursue an acting career in 1993.
She later found crossover success in the music industry with a series of pop albums.
Lopez, who was born into a family of Puerto Rican descent, took dance lessons throughout her childhood and from an early age had aspirations of fame.
She performed internationally in stage musicals, and at age 16 she made her film debut with a small role in My Little Girl (1986).
Her television break came in 1990 when she was cast as one of the “Fly Girls,” dancers who appeared on the comedy show In Living Color.
After she left the show, she turned her focus to acting, first in several short-lived television series and then in movie roles.
Lopez was raised in the Roman Catholic religion and attended Catholic schools through high school. She graduated high school from Preston High School in the Bronx, New York.
After high school, Lopez attended Baruch College for one semester, she however, quit her pursuit of a higher education to pursue her singing and dancing dreams.
Her first blockbuster film, Selena, was released in 1997, in which she portrayed famous Spanish singer, Selena Quintanill-Pérez.
Film success came quickly, and by the mid-1990s she was appearing with such notable actors as Robin Williams Jack, 1996 and Jack Nicholson Blood and Wine, 1997.
Lopez still remained somewhat in the periphery of the public vision, however, until she landed the lead role in Selena 1997, a biopic of the murdered Tejana singer.
She went on to star in a number of thrillers and action dramas, including Anaconda (1997), U Turn (1997), Out of Sight (1998), and The Cell (2000), and she gained widespread praise for The Wedding Planner (2001), her successful first attempt at romantic comedy.
That release was quickly followed by the romantic drama Angel Eyes in the middle of the year.
In 1999 Lopez added pop artist to her list of titles with the release of her debut album, On the 6.
To the surprise of many critics, the album quickly went platinum and subsequently sold more than eight million copies worldwide.
Her second album, J.Lo (2001), sold more than 270,000 copies in its first week.
In 2003 she starred opposite Affleck in Gigli, which was widely panned by critics, and a number of her subsequent films were box-office disappointments.
Her later albums included Rebirth (2005); the Spanish-language Como ama una mujer (2007), which reached the number one spot on Billboard’s Latin album chart; Brave (2007); Love? (2011), which featured the up-tempo hit “On the Floor”; and A.K.A. (2014). In 2020 Lopez and Shakira performed at the Super Bowl halftime show.
The following year Lopez sang at the U.S. presidential inauguration of Joe Biden.
Jennifer married Marc just months after her first split from Ben Affleck in June 2004 (they divorced, however, in 2014).
The two had been romantically linked in the past, and had previously collaborated on Spanish language duet “No Me Ames” on her 1999 debut album On The 6.
Three years after the secretive wedding, the Maid In Manhattan star announced she was pregnant on Nov. 8, 2007.
In February 2008 Lopez gave birth to twins, (Max and Emme) her first children and Anthony’s fourth and fifth.
