One of the fastest rising actresses, Jennifer Lopez is on fire. Working in films since high school, this Puerto Rican from the Bronx made her break in 1991 when she outperformed 2,000 other women for a spot as a “fly girl” on Fox-TV’s “In Living Color.” She made her film debut in Gregory Nava’s “Mi Familia” as the matriarch Maria Sanchez, and since then ,her career has soared. In just a few years, she has worked with Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes in the “Money Train,” Robin Williams in “Jack,” and opposite Jack Nicholson in “Blood and Wine.” Her brilliant 1997 performance in “Selena” established Lopez as Hollywood’s highest paid Latina, earning her $1 million for the role at the time.
