 Part of her appeal is her genuineness in interviews and public appearances. With her sweet smile, a lilting laugh which seems to channel sunlight, and down-to-earth demeanor, Lopez could be your —
 albeit exquisitely dressed — next-door neighbor.
Yet on stage, “Jenny from the Block,” becomes a fierce force of nature, turning from sweet to smoldering on a dime, supremely comfortable in her own skin, and showing no signs of slowing down.
Bronx-born Lopez got her first toe-hold in show business when she was cast as a “Fly Girl” dancer on comedy show In Living Color in 1991.
She moved on to a few small film roles before landing the title role in the acclaimed film Selena, a 1997 biopic of a popular Tex-Mex singer that earned her a Golden Globe nomination and a million-dollar paycheck, making her the highest-paid Latina actress at the time.
