A timeless beauty! Jennifer Lopez hasn’t aged a day in the past 20 years.
J. Lo burst onto the scene as a Fly Girl dancer on In Living Color in 1991. After a few seasons on the show, she left to conquer Hollywood. As an actress, Lopez had her first starring hit role in the 1997 biopic Selena, playing legendary Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla.
The rest, of course, is history. Lopez went on to star in iconic films including Out of Sight, The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan and (unfortunately) Gigli. In 1999, she launched her wildly successful music career with her first album, On the 6, which featured smash singles “If You Had My Love” and “Waiting for Tonight.”
Soon, the stylish Bronx native became as well known for her rocky romantic life as for her singing, acting and dancing. After her divorce from first husband, Ojani Noa, in 1998, she started dating Sean “Diddy” Combs (Puff Daddy at the time). A brief marriage to backup dancer Cris Judd followed before she and Ben Affleck became beloved celebrity couple Bennifer — for the first time.
The future American Idol host was then wed to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2011, welcoming twins Max and Emme in February 2008. In 2017, she began dating former New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez. The pair got engaged in March 2019 but called it quits in April 2021, saying in a statement that they’re “better as friends.”
Shortly after her split from A-Rod, the “Let’s Get Loud” singer rekindled her romance with Affleck, whom she’d dated from 2002 to 2004. In May 2021, the pair were spotted taking a trip to Montana and were later photographed kissing while working out at a gym in Miami.
“They’re well aware some cynics still look at it as a big flashy attention grab and roll their eyes at the speed of it all, but it doesn’t faze them one iota,” a source told Us Weekly in July 2021. “They’re fully committed to taking the next steps and spending the rest of their lives together.”
Through all of this, Lopez also became a red carpet darling and designer muse. Breaking style boundaries from the start — see: her iconic green plunging Versace number from the 2000 Grammys, which is still inspiring trends — the actress has continued making bold choices at events and on the street.
After nearly three decades of career highs, relationship drama and personal triumphs, Lopez’s hot body and appearance remain nearly identical to her first days on screen — thanks to great genes and her famous dedication to fitness and healthy eating.
