Jennifer Lopez has mastered being a multi-hyphenate. She got her start as a dancer, first in a Japanese run of the musical Synchronicity and then as a Fly Girl on several seasons of the groundbreaking early ‘90s sketch show In Living Color. By the end of the decade, she had moved on to acting on both small screens (South Central. Second Chances) and big (Money Train, U-Turn, Selena, Out Of Sight). She crossed over to music in 1999 with the release of On The 6, which contains five hit singles including the triple platinum “If You Had My Love.” By 2001, she was the highest paid Latina actress and the first person to have a No. 1 album (J. Lo) and No. 1 film (The Wedding Planner) simultaneously.
Jenny from the block has designed and headed a fashion label, launched perfume and cosmetic lines, owned Madre restaurant, served as New York’s Puerto Rican Day parade grand marshal, judged on American Idol and started a production company all while still acting (The Back-Up Plan, Parker), recording (including a Spanish-language album) and touring. She also loves big. She came close to marriage with Sean “Diddy” Combs (1999-2001) and Ben Affleck (2002-2004) and went through with it three times and counting with Ojani Noa (1997-98), Cris Judd (2001-2002) and Marc Anthony (2004 to 2012). In 2008, she added parent to her resume when she gave birth to twins Max and Emme. Cougar is her most current title as she is living with her dancer Casper Smart, 18 years her junior.
