An ambitious triple threat who went from dancer to top shelf actress to best-selling recording artist, Jennifer Lopez was able to maintain a high level of publicity throughout a majority of her career, even when negative press managed to enter her orbit. After getting her start as a "Fly Girl" on the hit variety series "In Living Color" (Fox, 1990-94), Lopez broke through with a strong leading performance in the biopic "Selena" (1997), playing the famed Tejano singer who was tragically murdered by an obsessed fan. But it was her onscreen chemistry and believable portrayal of a federal agent falling for an escaped convict in "Out of Sight" (1998) that propelled her into the limelight - to say nothing of the infamous Versace green dress with plunging neckline that took the world by storm. Lopez immediately became the prime topic of the tabloids, which took pleasure in detailing her relationships with Sean Combs, Ben Affleck, Chris Judd and Marc Anthony. Meanwhile, Lopez launched a second career as a top recording artist and repackaged herself as J.Lo. Her entertainment successes continued with a stint on "American Idol" and starring roles in such films as "Ice Age: Continental Drift" (2012), "Parker" (2013), and "The Boy Next Door" (2015), followed by her starring role in the TV series "Shades of Blue" (2016). By this time, Lopez had established herself as a multifaceted force to be reckoned with, while becoming one of the richest and most influential Hispanic entertainers of all time.
