Full name: Jennifer Lynn Lopez
DOB: July 24, 1969
Place of birth: The Bronx, New York, USA
Occupation: Actress and singer
J-Lo was the first woman to top FHM’s 100 Sexiest list on two consecutive occasions, in 2000 and 2001.
She’s proud of her Latina heritage and was brought up in a Puerto Rican home, but struggles with speaking Spanish.
She's a practitioner of Israeli self-defence system Krav Maga, so don't mess.
What has made Jennifer Lopez the richest person of Latin American descent in Hollywood? Eight albums of feisty R’n’B “jamz”? Dozens of multi-million dollar film appearances? Two lines of perfume and a fashion label? The most globally obsessed-over bum-cheeks in all of human history? We’d say that it’s a combination of all of the above.
J-Lo’s popularity may have waned a little during the late noughties, but rather than recede into the Where Are They Now? files, the Bronx beauty mounted one of the most impressive comebacks of recent times, attacking on three sides: conquering the charts with 2011’s mega-hit On The Floor, conquering telly with her role as an outspoken judge on American Idol, and conquering cinemas with roles in movies such as What To Expect When You’re Expecting. It’s like Jennifer (and her bum-cheeks) never went away!
