On the one hand, Lopez sparks controversy by wearing fur, angering her fans who are vocally against the killing of animals so she can adorn her generous body, especially her well-talked about 'bubble butt'...well, those who love J-Lo call it a bubble butt; those who don't just think she's got a huge ass. In any event, she does wear fur; but, refuses to endorse Georgian Tbilisi Wine because it might contain traces of pesticides. So, she wears dead animals, but turns down a half a mil because of a little bug spray? Well, one thing's for sure about Jennifer Lopez, born in 1969. It must have been a 'love year' because this Latina gal is nutty for nuptials. Especially her own. One thing's for sure about Jennifer Lopez: The gal's nutty for nuptials. Especially her own. She has been married several times, her first marriage, at the age of 15 to David Cruz, a production assistant, lasted a matter of months. Then, she walked down the aisle with Ojani Noa, a model-waiter-whatever from Miami, who scored his biggest tip when the Selena star ended up on his arm. But soon after the premiere of 1997's U Turn, Lopez's love life was headed in a whole new direction. After struttin' her salsa stuff in a Puff Daddy music video, the two became inseparable, and P. Diddy proclaimed them the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton of the hip-hop world. As if. By 2001, she hooked up with Cris Judd, and together (with a set of backup dancers), the married pair performed a choreographed routine at their own reception. Not her brightest day. Less than a year later, Jennifer found herself pouring her heart out to Ben Affleck, who couldn't stay away from her trailer on the Gigli set. But third engagement was not to be the charm for Lopez--her love for Affleck couldn't even get them to the altar, and they ended the affair in 2003. Check out the twists and turns of J.Lo's vie l'amour on Love Chain. Ms. Lopez's romantic history is nothing if not complicated, and E! Online - Love Chain is here to help you sort it all out. Now, she's married to Marc Anthony and the gossip continues. She's got a big ass and he's a control freak who is scary looking. Tabloids publish the observations from body language 'experts' who claim that because Jen follows behind him, he is showing the world he's in control. Maybe she follows him because she wants the world to see her ass. Apparently, he also tells her what to wear and flies into a jealous rage when she speaks to her leading men between shooting scenes on her movie set.
She grew up in the Bronx, with her Puerto Rican family, taking dance and singing lessons which won her several parts in musicals. She was noticed by agents and made her first film, 'My Little Girl', in 1986. Less than ten years later, she was acting in US sitcoms 'My Family', 'Money train' and 'Jack'. Her career began to take off in 1997 with her role in 'Selena', which lead to parts in 'Anaconda' and 'Out of Sight', opposite George Clooney, and two years later she embarked on a career in music, with the hit 'If You Had my Love' from her first album, 'On the Six'. She has had more luck in her career however, juggling acting, with films such as 'The Cell' and 'The Wedding Planner', and singing, releasing a second album, entitled 'J.Lo' in 2001. Her biggest hits were duets with Ja-Rule ('I’M Real', 'Ain’t it Funny'), but success also came with tracks such as 'Love Don’t Cost A Thing' and 'Play'. More recently, she filmed ' Angel Eyes' and 'Maid in Manhatten' in 2002, releasing an album, 'This Is Me…Then' in the same year. Her hit ' Jenny From The Block' set dance floors on fire in 2003.
