Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer first hit the main stream spotlight when she played the lead role in the movie Selena which earned her a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination.
At a young age always knew she wanted to be a performer, she began her career as a dancer in stage musicals and few music videos. However, it wasn't until she was chosen as a "fly girl" dancer for Fox's In Livin Color that she got a taste of Hollywood. After a few seasons of In Livin Color, Jennifer decided she wanted to make change to give acting a try.

She did a few television shows and her first film in 1995 title Mi Familia.

This film was one her first movies to show off her dancing talents. She took sultry dances with beautiful smooth fluid moves, but yet moved across the screen in a very wholesome and sweet way. Jennifer showed a soft side to her acting and dancing to which not over shadow co-star Richard Gear, and that showed how much she has progressed as a talented actress.
