Real Name : Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lynn Lopez (born July 24, 1969) is an American actress, dancer, entrepreneur and recording artist. Widely recognized as being the definition of America's sweetheart, Lopez has been cited as being the most influential Hispanic performer in the United States. She is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood and is the highest paid actor of Latin descent, making up to US$15 million per film role. Lopez has sold over 11.8 million albums in the United States and over 70 million records worldwide. She became interested in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry following her small role in the 1986 film My Little Girl, to the dismay of her Puerto Rican parents, who believed that it was an unrealistic career route for a Latino. Following her move from The Bronx to Manhattan, Lopez performed in regional stage productions, before touring with musicals in Europe and Japan. She gained her first regular high-profile job as a Fly Girl dancer on the television comedy program In Living Color in 1991, where she remained a regular cast member until 1993 when she decided to pursue a full-time acting career. Lopez received her first leading role in the Selena biopic of the same name in 1997, which earned her widespread acclaim and a Golden Globe nomination. Following subsequent roles in the films Anaconda (1997) and Out of Sight (1998), Lopez ventured into the music industry in 1999 with the release of her debut album On the 6. With the simultaneous release of her second studio album J.Lo and her film The Wedding Planner in 2001, Lopez became the first person to have a number one album and film in the same week. Lopez's 2002 remix album, J to tha LâO! The Remixes, became the first in history to debut atop the U.S. Billboard 200. Between the release of her third and fourth studio albums - This Is Me... Then and Rebirth - Lopez took a break from her music career to focus on acting, starring in the films Maid in Manhattan (2002) and Shall We Dance? (2004). Lopez's Spanish-language album, Como Ama una Mujer (2007), received the highest first-week sales in the United States for a Spanish album. Her commercial success was severely damaged after the release of her sixth studio album, Brave (2007). The set, which showcased a different musical prospective from the singer, failed to attain the success of her previous efforts and removed Lopez from the music scene until 2011, when she became a judge on the singing competition American Idol; this move allowed her to regain media attention and improved her success at charts, with her single "On the Floor", showcased and released during such timespan, becoming a worldwide hit and her best-selling single to date.
