Her title role in 'Selena' (1997)
Background:On Friday, 3/31/1995, the popular Latin singer Selena was murdered by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar. In 1997 the movie biography of her life, titled Selena, was released with actress/singer Jennifer Lopez portraying the talented Selena Quintanilla-Pérezhit and a new star, Jennifer Lopez, was born.Often viewed as one of the sexiest women on the planet, the singer, actress, model, clothing line owner, and dancer has been linked to some noteworthy men. Now married to singer Marc Anthony, Jennifer was once also married to choreographer and dancer Cris Judd and waiter/model Ojani Noa. Her former engagement to actor Ben Affleck and being romantically linked to hip-hop musician and producer P. Diddy kept the Paparazzi in a feeding frenzy.With musical hits like "If You Had My Love" and over 35 million records sold worldwide, it is no wonder Jennifer Lopez can stay in the limelight. Add that to movies like Out of Sight (1998), also starring George Clooney and The Wedding Planner (2001), co-star Matthew McConaughey, and she is likely to stay there."It makes me laugh when she says she got offered Selena, which was an outright lie. If that's what she does to get herself publicity than that's her thing." Jennifer Lopez speaking about actress Salma Hayek."I'm living the life I always dreamed of living. From the time I was a youngster I wanted to be a celebrity. It's a great life. The only bad thing is that people are more interested in your personal life than they are in your work and it's freaky."

There's always those most popular girls and I wasn't one of those." Jennifer Lopez"My parents wanted me to be a lawyer. But I don't think I would have been very happy. I'd be in front of the jury singing." Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez married singer Marc Anthony on June 5th, 2004. Being her third marriage many remain skeptical about the union.

"Living your life in public is a weird thing because people feel they have a right to judge what you do. I think, if you turn the media spotlight on any random person, they would have the same kinds of things going on in their lives, but mine would wind up on the front page." Jennifer Lopez"People equate sexy with promiscuous. They think that because I'm shaped this way, I must be scandalous, like running around and bringing men into my hotel room. But it's just the opposite."

Everybody has seen that I make mistakes. Every single album I have ever made is about love. But I am not going to give up. I have to look at what I do wrong. I rush in, I get swept up, I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things. Each time it goes wrong it’s hard. I get really hurt but I have to let myself go: �What did I do? What can I learn?’ And as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher. I’ve got to hope that if I keep going I will eventMore Jennifer Lopez quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
