(The Latest Available Bio)

Actor, singer, film and television producer, fashion designer, New York Times bestselling author, entrepreneur and humanitarian JENNIFER LOPEZ (Claire Peterson/Produced by) has created one of the most successful and well-known brands in entertainment. With an unmatched global appeal, her "Dance Again" world tour sold more than one million tickets, her films have brought in more than $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office, and her fragrances have become one of the most successful celebrity lines in the world, with sales exceeding $2 billion.

Lopez made her feature-film debut in the highly acclaimed Mi Familia, which garnered her a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Female. She followed that performance with her portrayal of Latin music sensation Selena Quintanilla in Selena, which earned her widespread acclaim, including a Golden Globe Award nomination and an NCLR ALMA Award for Outstanding Actress in a Feature Film. In her career, Lopez has had five films open at No. 1: Maid in Manhattan, Monster-in- Law, Anaconda, The Cell and Antz. Her additional film credits include Shall We Dance?, Enough, Out of Sight, Angel Eyes, Parker, An Unfinished Life, Money Train, Jack, Blood and Wine and El Cantante. She will next be seen in the independent film Lila and Eve, opposite Viola Davis, which is set to debut at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

Since Lopez's fi rst album, "On the 6," debuted in 1999, she has been transforming the global music scene and has sold more than 75 million records worldwide.

She has had 16 top-10 hit songs and three No. 1 albums. Among her musical achievements, she has won three American Music Awards, three ASCAP Awards, eight Billboard Latin Music Awards and two MTV Video Music Awards. In 2014, she became the first woman to receive the lifetime-achievement Icon Award at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards for her contribution to pop music. Lopez is also a two-time Grammy Award nominee. She recently released her 10th album, "A.K.A.," which includes "I Luh Ya Papi," "First Love" and "Booty." For the album, Lopez collaborated with artists Iggy Azalea, T.I., Pitbull, French Montana, Rick Ross, Tyga, Sia, Chantal Kreviazuk, Kirby Lauryen, Chris Brown, and producers Max Martin, Kotecha Savana, Detail, RoccStar, DJ Mustard, Diplo, Harmony and Pop & Oak, as well as longtime collaborator and producer Cory Rooney.

In 2001, Lopez made history by being the first female artist to have a No. 1 movie and No. 1 album during the same week: The Wedding Planner was the top-grossing fi lm in the U.S., while her second album, "J.Lo," was at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Lopez joined the cast of American Idol in 2010, helping to make it the most-watched U.S. television series for two years in a row. For her work on the show, she won a Teen Choice Award for Favorite TV Personality. Additionally, People named her its annual World's Most Beautiful Woman in 2011. She is currently part of the American Idol judges table for the 2015 season.

Lopez's career achievements continue to grow. In 2013, she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, won Favorite Actress and the World Icon Award at the Premios Juventud awards show, was honored at the amfAR Inspiration Gala and received the March of Dimes' Grace Kelly Award for her charitable work. In 2014 she received GLAAD's Vanguard Award and was honored at Variety's Power of Women event for her philanthropic efforts. Her previous honors include Glamour's All-Star Woman of the Year, ShoWest's Female Star of the Year, multiple Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, a Blockbuster Entertainment Award, multiple ALMA awards and the 2006 Women in Film Crystal Award. In 2012, Forbes named her as its No. 1 Most Powerful Celebrity.

In addition to The Boy Next Door, Nuyorican Productions, Lopez's motion picture and television production company, has produced the HBO special Jennifer Lopez: Dance Again. Nuyorican has branched out into scripted and unscripted television, producing the critically acclaimed, groundbreaking ABC Family hit series The Fosters, a show about a lesbian couple raising children together and helping redefine the meaning of family, from creators Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg. The Fosters has won several awards, including a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding TV Drama Series, the LA Gay and Lesbian Center's Board of Directors' Award for LGBT Outstanding Leadership, and Choice TV Breakout Show at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. In 2015, the company will begin production on a series for NBC titled Shades of Blue, in which Lopez will also star. In unscripted television, Nuyorican's credits include the bilingual Latin American talent-show Q'Viva! The Chosen, for both FOX and Univision, and House of Joy and A Step Away for NuvoTV, the English-language cable network for which Lopez is the chief creative officer. In early 2014, NuvoTV acquired Fuse TV, a channel dedicated largely to music. NuvoTV features original series and specials, live concerts and blocks of music videos.

In 2002, Lopez joined forces with the international beauty company Coty to release her fragrance Glow by JLo. The fragrance broke sales records and continues to be one of the most popular scents sold in the world today. Since then, Lopez has released multiple fragrance lines, including Love & Glamour, Still, Live, Glowing and JLove, generating nearly $2 billion in retail sales in 25 markets worldwide. Lopez's 21st fragrance, Glowing Goddess, was recently made available exclusively at Kohl's as part of the Jennifer Lopez Collection, an affordable line of fashion, home goods and accessories for the modern woman.

In 2014, Lopez released "True Love," her memoir, which became an instant international best-seller and landed at No. 5 on The New York Times hardcover nonfiction best-seller list. The book, which was published in English and Spanish, also landed on the USA Today bestseller list and was the No. 1 Spanish-language nonfi ction hardcover in the U.S. in its week of release. "True Love" is an intimate look at one of Lopez's most defining moments-a two-year period of great personal growth in the wake of a divorce as she created and set out on her first world tour. Like many other women balancing the demands of motherhood and a career, Lopez found herself at a crossroads, determined to confront her greatest challenges and identify her biggest fears. The book, an honest and revealing personal diary with hard-won lessons and heartfelt recollections, is an empowering story of self-reflection, rediscovery and resilience.

Lopez's passion and commitment to making a difference in the world is highlighted by her work with children via the Lopez Family Foundation, a not-for-profit organization she started with her sister Lynda. The Lopez Family Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of women and children and better the level of medical care available to them. The organization opened its first telemedicine center in Puerto Rico in 2010, with seven new centers in Panama last year. Additionally, the foundation recently opened the Center for a Healthy Childhood in the Bronx, in partnership with the Montefiore Medical Center, to promote healthy eating and exercise and advocate for accessible care for women, children and families in the Bronx.
