Her first breakthrough came as a dancer on the 1990s sketch comedy series In Living Colour.

She pursued an acting career and landed a leading role in Selena in 1997.

She would go on to appear in films including Anaconda, Out Of Sight, The Wedding Planner, Hustlers and her latest, Marry Me.

The 52-year-old actor will release a new Netflix documentary called Halftime on June 14.

The project focuses on the second half of her career and she reflects on her milestones and evolution as an artist.

As a singer, Lopez has had major success on the pop and Latin charts with multiple hit songs and albums.

She released her multi-hit debut On The 6 in 1999 and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with songs such as If You Had My Love, All I Have and the remixes of I’m Real and Ain’t It Funny.

In 2020, Lopez performed during the Super Bowl half-time show alongside Shakira.
