This singer, dancer and actress began as a Fly Girl on the comedy skit show “In Living Color.” She made a splash in her first lead role in the 1997 biopic “Selena,” which earned her a Golden Globe nomination while becoming the first Latina actress to earn more than $1 million for a film. She would go on to star in action thriller “Anaconda” that same year and earned positive reviews opposite George Clooney in the 1998 sexy crime comedy “Out of Sight.” J.Lo also found crossover success on the pop charts as a singer. But her big-screen career took a nosedive after starring in the 2003 turkey “Gigli” that also starred her then-beau Ben Affleck. Her last positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes was the 1998 animated film “Antz.” Lately, she has become better known as a reality TV talent competition judge on “American Idol” for five seasons and on “World of Dance,” which she executive-produces.
Comeback blueprint: From her provocative opening pole-dance entrance that leaves her drowning in tossed dollar bills to her character’s eventual arrest, Lopez — glorious at age 50 — owns “Hustlers” like a ballsy boss. As slinky ringleader Ramona, the actress takes charge of this true story of how a pack of strippers after the 2008 stock market collapse at a Manhattan club swindled their Wall Street clients out of cash by drugging their drinks and maxing out their credit cards. While Constance Wu is the good-hearted take-it-off ingenue whose back story drives the plot, Lopez gladly slips into a supporting role that allows her to have the most skimpily-clad fun — even tantalizing Usher on stage — while wallowing in a sea of luxury brands and tony surroundings bought with her ill-gotten gains.
Current Gold Derby combined Oscar odds status: With 6/1 odds, J.Lo is sitting pretty on the supporting actress chart at No. 2, tucked between Laura Dern as a tough divorce lawyer in “Marriage Story” and Annette Bening as Senator Dianne Feinstein in “The Report.” Currently, 2,086 users are predicting she will be nominated while 304 say she will win. Her main competition, both previous Oscar nominees without any wins, are considered overdue. But can they twirl half-naked around a pole in six-inch stiletto heels?
Months into her engagement with Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez has finally dropped a wedding dress hint — and the tiny tidbit actually reveals a lot about the direction she might be going with her gown. Spoiler alert? She may be big on both fashion and drama, but her wedding dress will be anything but (big, that is).
On Monday, Lopez attended the 2019 Governors Awards, where she caught up with Extra’s Terri Seymour. Talk invariably turned to the new film the entertainer has been working on: Marry Me, which is slated for release on Jan. 1, 2020. In the film, Lopez plays a pop superstar jilted by her rockstar fiancé moments before their wedding at Madison Square Garden, so she marries a random guy from the crowd instead. And you know what that means, right? There will be at least one wedding gown in the rom-com. As a matter of fact, Lopez has already been spotted filming in a stunning Zuhair Murad dress.
Knowing this, Seymour asked Lopez whether being in bridal couture for the film was giving Lopez any inspiration for her real-life nuptials. “I know I don’t want one as big as I’m wearing in the movie,” she exclaimed, adding, “That one is a lot to carry around… too big!”
Jennifer Lopez has been working on a new fragrance.
The perfume, which is now on sale online at Ulta Beauty and set to roll out in stores on September 28, is described as “the essence of a multifaceted and powerful woman.” It features top notes of Italian tangerine, pink berries and nashi pea, a middle of orris, jasmine sambac and dewy honeysuckle and a woody, crystallized amber base.
The superstar, 50, took to Instagram to share the news of the drop with her 101 million followers, posting images from the official announcement alongside the message “Today was SOOOO special!!!” She also offered fans a glimpse of the official campaign imagery, which sees her posing in a slinky, metallic dress.
“Working with the force that is Jennifer Lopez to create something truly unique in the category has been inspiring,” Parag Vidyarthi, managing director of the license holder for Lopez’s fragrances, Designer Parfums, told WWD. “As the ultimate visionary and creative partner, Jennifer was steadfast in her pursuit to ensure Promise delivers the powerful emotional fragrance experience women are seeking.”
“This is happening.”
After rumors started swirling earlier this month that Jennifer Lopez would be this year’s Super Bowl halftime performer, the superstar took to Twitter on Thursday (Sept. 26) to confirm: “It’s happening.”
But she’s not going it alone: Fellow Latin music powerhouse Shakira will also be performing.
J.Lo’s tweet simply has the “It’s happening.” caption, plus the date of the 2020 Super Bowl, alongside a photo of Shakira wearing a gold Pepsi bicep cuff (shouting out the halftime show’s sponsor) and a massive two-finger ring with the 02.02.2020 date. Shakira, meanwhile, posted a photo of Lopez wearing a Pepsi ring and belt buckle in her “Get ready” tweet.

She also filmed her interviews for The Daily Show, which will air tomorrow (Dec 12), and Watch What Happens Live, which will air Thursday (Dec 13).

Bad Bunny had said, “I barely said a word to her because I was so nervous. I felt the pressure“, adding: “She’s a total professional, a diva, a mega-star, not just in music but in the entertainment industry. You always learn from the greats, and J.Lo is one.” The Fader called the track reggaeton and a “long-awaited” collaboration. According to Suzette Fernandez of Billboard, the song’s lyrics feature an exchange “when a couple meet for the first time, like each other and are remembering that moment.”

It was supposed to be Jennifer Lopez’s day off. Cue visions of her lounging by her infinity pool in Bel-Air, friends hanging, tunes turned up. Instead, Lopez, the multihyphenate performer, producer and branding maven, held a half-dozen business meetings in her home here, from early morning until sundown, on ambitious ventures ranging from real estate to fitness.
A studio head was there, some developer types, marketing people, her TV and film producing partner, her manager and Alex Rodriguez, her boyfriend. The couple were hoping to have dinner together, but “you see what goes on around here,” she said, unapologetically, as they went over the day’s agenda.
A gracious Bel-Air mansion — complete with mini-waterfalls (yes, plural), fireplaces blazing in even empty rooms, and two bunnies that belong to Lopez’s 10-year-old twins — might seem an unlikely spot to transform into a C-suite. But when Lopez moved in two years ago, she designed an office like a boardroom, complete with big conference table. It just happens to be next to the couture-filled space where she gets her hair and makeup done. And so she whisks in, half-dolled up, to present her opinions and outsize ideas, and she sells them: J. Lo Inc., in action.
Jennifer Lopez is sitting by the pool behind her Bel-Air mansion, waiting for two staffers to move an umbrella closer to her chair and thinking about how her life could have turned out very differently. She sends a quick text to boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, takes a sip of ice water, and sits still for a moment while a stylist applies a piece of double-stick tape to the plunging neckline of her Alexandre Vauthier dress so there will be no cleavage mishaps during a TV appearance later in the afternoon. Then Lopez reflects on how close she came to ending up as a bank teller in the Bronx.
“If I didn’t have certain ambitions, I might have gotten married after high school and had kids and decided to get a job at a bank in Castle Hill, like my aunt did,” says the New York native. “It’s just that I had dreams and ideas that were different.”
Lopez, who turns 50 in July, has been pondering her life path a lot lately. It’s partly because in her new movie, Second Act, she plays a character whom she describes as “soooo me” — an outer-borough girl with no connections and no college degree who suddenly finds herself across the river in Manhattan, navigating a world of glamour and power and Madison Avenue shopping sprees. It’s also because Lopez, after almost three decades of relentlessly public highs and lows, now understands herself better than she used to. A mother of 10-year-old twins (with ex-husband Marc Anthony) who meditates daily while juggling the jobs of actor, singer, Vegas performer, producer, reality-show judge, etc., etc., she has developed the kind of confidence that makes it easier to talk about her insecurities. Shortly after her breakout film, Selena, came out in 1997, Lopez remembers, she was speaking with a cousin whom she has known since she was young. “He said that whenever he saw me on TV or in movies, he thought, ‘She’s scared, but she’s doing it anyway.’ And he was absolutely right — I was terrified. But I really wanted to try. I wanted to do it.”
Jennifer Lopez attended the American Music Awards last night! She looked amazing on the red carpet, as she wore a bright pink Georges Chakra gown.
