Childhood

Jennifer Lynn Lopez was born in New York City’s Bronx borough on July 24, 1969. Guadalupe Rodriguez and David Lopez, her parents, are Puerto Rican. Leslie is her older sister, and Lynda is her younger sister. Her father worked at an insurance company on the night shift. Her mother was a stay-at-home mother. Jennifer was born in a small apartment in the Castle Hill neighborhood. Her parents purchased a two-story house a few years later.

 

When Jennifer was five years old, she began taking singing and dancing lessons. Her parents encouraged their three daughters to perform at home – singing and dancing in front of their family and friends – in order to keep them out of trouble. Lopez spent her entire academic career in Catholic schools. She competed in gymnastics, ran track on a national level, and played softball for her high school. Lopez auditioned for and was cast in the low-budget indie film My Little Girl during her senior year of high school. This experience convinced JLo that she desired a career as a famous movie star. Her parents thought that was a “completely ridiculous” idea because “no Latinos did that.” She enrolled in Baruch College to appease her parents but dropped out after the first semester.

 

Career in Dancing

Lopez moved out of her parents’ house and into an apartment in Manhattan following disagreements with her parents over her desire to pursue a career in dance and acting. She appeared in regional productions of Jesus Christ Superstar and Oklahoma! shortly thereafter. She was then hired for a five-month tour of Europe with the chorus of Golden Musicals of Broadway. She then landed a job in Japan as a dancer, singer, and choreographer on the show Synchronicity. She performed as a backup dancer for the New Kids on the Block at the 18th Annual American Music Awards in 1991. Not long after, she landed a job on In Living Color as a Fly Girl dancer. She was chosen from more than 2,000 applicants and relocated to Los Angeles for the job. JLo remained a regular cast member until 1993, when she left to pursue a career in acting.

 

Career in Acting

Lopez appeared in minor roles on television and in films between 1993 and 1995. In 1995, she won the title role in the biopic Selena. Jennifer portrayed the late Tejano singer Selena in the film, who was assassinated by a former friend, employee, and fan club president. Jennifer went on to appear in numerous films, including Anaconda, Out of Sight, The Wedding Planner, and An Unfinished Life.

 

Lopez co-starred in the romantic comedy Gigli with Ben Affleck in August 2003. The film was a box office failure and is widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made. The film’s poor reception was attributed to negative press prior to its release, as well as media attention focused on Lopez and Affleck’s engagement, which largely overshadowed the film. Lopez later described this as her career’s low point. Lopez co-starred with Affleck in the film Jersey Girl in March 2004. Within the first 15 minutes of the film, her character dies during childbirth. According to the frenzied media coverage that followed Affleck and Lopez’s split, “they may need to put Lopez in a coffin on the poster if they want anyone to come.”
