Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez’s first big break came in 1997, when she was chosen to play the title role in Selena, a biopic of the Tejano pop singer Selena. Despite having previously worked with Nava on Mi Familia, Jennifer Lopez was subjected to an intense auditioning process before landing the lead role of Selena. Jennifer Lopez earned widespread praise for her performance, including a Golden Globe Award nomination for “Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy”. Later that year Jennifer Lopez appeared in two major films. Jennifer Lopez starred in the horror film Anaconda alongside Ice Cube and Jon Voight, playing the role of Terri Flores, a director who is shooting a documentary while traveling through the Amazon River. Despite being a modest box office hit, the film was critically panned. Jennifer Lopez then starred as the leading actress in the neo-noir film U Turn, which is based on the book Stray Dogs, starring alongside Sean Penn and Billy Bob Thornton.
