Her starring role in the 1997 biopic Selena brought Jennifer Lopez to megastar status.
The dancer, actor, musician and entrepreneur wowed critics in The Cell and Out of Sight and she explored her comedic side in The Wedding Planner and Monster In Law. Lopez’s debut album, On the 6 and 2001’s J.Lo topped the charts. The triple-threat also helms the JLo Beauty skincare line, which launched in January 2021.
Lopez was married to Cuban chef Ojani Noa for nearly a year and dancer Cris Judd from 2001-2002.
The international star also had high-profile romances with Sean Combs and Ben Affleck (during which the couple was dubbed “Bennifer”) before she adopted a more private romantic life after she married Latin crooner Marc Anthony in June 2004.
In February 2008, Lopez gave birth to twins, son Max and daughter Emme. She and Anthony announced their split in July 2011 and, months later, she moved on with backup dancer Beau “Casper” Smart until 2016.
After years of knowing each other, the actress began dating baseball player Alex Rodriguez in July 2017. They became engaged in March 2019 but eventually announced their split in April 2021 after their wedding was put off due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Lopez was chosen to perform during the 54th annual Super Bowl halftime show alongside Shakira in February 2020. That same year, she received a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards for her work in the film Hustlers.
