Jennifer Lopez Biography

Jennifer Lopez Biography A multi-talented personality Jennifer Lopez has carved a niche for herself in the musical albums where her dance and acting skills are being showcased.

Lopez is one of the few top ladies in Hollywood who had done a fine tight rope walking between the film career and her solo musicals (pop videos) which earned her a great fan following around the world.

Meteoric rise to stardom

Jennifer Lopez (born: July 24, 1969) appeared in stage musicals and music albums as a dancer in her young age.

Born and brought in Bronx, New York, she won a national competition (1990) and got a spot dancing on the comedy TV series In Living Colour.

She essayed a number of small acting roles in TV soaps and tele-film Nurses on the Line: The Crash of Flight 7 (1993).

Her first feature film was Mi Familia (My Family) in 1995 which got her critical acclaim.

The first break in her career was the title role in Selena (1997), a biopic on Tejana pop singer who was killed by her fan.

She got a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Selena and received a pay cheque of $1 million for portraying that role.

Her roles in Anaconda and Blood and Wine were, however, forgettable.

She acted as a federal marshal in Out of Sight directed by Steven Soderbergh and shared the screen presence with George Clooney.

This character further lifted her status as a dependable star in the Hollywood industry.

Musical albums, a grand success

Lopez released her debut Latin pop album On the 6 (1999) which madeher one of the most influential singers in the Latin cultural space in the pop music.

Her solo performance in the number If You Had My Love in the album was a great hit and the CD sales crossed one million within two weeks.

She along with Ricky Martin was considered the most successful artiste in the Latin pop album scene. In 2000, her second hit number Waiting for Tonight got her nomination for Best Dance Performance.

But she narrowly lost the award to veteran singer Cher. She acted as a child psychologist in a sci-fi thriller The Cell(2000) and in the same year she starred in Enough expressing the sufferings due to spousal abuse.

The year 2001 was most satisfying to Lopez as her popularity soared. Her album J. Lo made it to the No. 1 slot in the pop charts and her film The Wedding Planner, a romantic comedy, grossed revenues to reach the box office top in the first weekend.

Doing an encore in December 2002, she released a musical This is Me... Then which was an instant hit. She did a lead role in a social comedy Maid in Manhattan in the same year which too was revenue grosser.

Jennifer Lopez did essay some memorable roles in Jersey Girl pairing with Ben Affleck and An Unfinished Life in which she played a single mother having to come under the care of her father-in-law (Robert Redford).

In a dance musical Shall We Dance?, she partnered with actor Richard Gere to recreate the top rated Japanese film in English.

Troubled life hogs limelight

Lopez's first marriage to model cum actor Ojani Noa in 1997 was short-lived.

Her romantic affair with rapper Sean "Puffy" Combs had got wide publicity until it broke off after a shooting incident between them in December 1999 near at New York City nightclub.

After her breakup with Combs was made public, Lopez got a new boyfriend in dancer Cris Judd who had performed in her hit single Love Don't Cost a Thing.

They got married in September 2001, but the couple parted ways nine months later.

In 2002 November, Lopez got engaged with actor Ben Affleck who she was dating for some time. But she fell out with the actor in early 2004.

Lopez married singer Marc Anthony in June 2004 at a private ceremony in her Los Angeles mansion.

Proud mother of twins

She and her husband Antony acted as lead pair in the film El Cantante (2006), the story of a salsa singer and his wife.

Her first Spanish album Como Ama una Mujer (2007) topped the Latin pop charts.

Lopez met with continuing success in the album Brave even as personal life evoked much interest in the media. On 22 February 2008, Lopez gave birth to twins -- a baby boy and girl. Reality show in TV.

In 2010 Jennifer Lopez replaced Ellen DeGeneres as the new female judge during the eleventh season of American Idol. She returned to the reality show earning $20 million, nearly double of what she got in her first stint.

While her career was on the upswing, she announced parting of ways with Marc Anthony in July 2011. In 2012, Lopez left the American Idol only to return to the reality show on its 13th season two years later.

In 2014, she separated from dancer Casper Smart after two and a half years of living together.
