OUT OF SIGHT
JENNIFER LOPEZ began to study acting in 1990, and soon
thereafter won a national competition for the coveted spot as
a "Fly Girl" on Fox's television series, In Living
Color. This was followed by roles in other series including
South Central, Second Chance and Hotel Malibu.
Following her television experience, she was cast to star in the
highly acclaimed feature film My Family/Mi Familia, directed
by Gregory Nava. It was the first of two films she would do with
Francis Ford Coppola, who executive produced. Her role as the
young mother, Maria Sanchez, earned her an Independent Spirit

opposite Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes; Francis Ford Coppola's
Jack, with Robin Williams; opposite Jack Nicholson in Blood
and Wine; and Anaconda, opposite Jon Voight, Eric Stoltz
and Ice Cube. Jennifer's big break and chance to really shine
came when she was chosen out of more than a thousand women to
star as Selena in Selena, the biopic about the murdered
Tejano singer, directed by Gregory Nava (Mi Familia).
This past year, Lopez starred opposite Sean Penn and Nick Nolte
in U-Turn, directed by Oliver Stone.
