"A lot of times, when people, especially women, attain a certain status, when they raise their hand and say, 'I want it,' with no guilt, they get that title, 'Diva' put on them. I only deal with people how they deal with me, and never did I see Jennifer take advantage of her position, or belittle or bully anyone. I think she's handling everything with a lot of grace." - actor Vince Vaughn, Lopez's co-star in "The Cell" quoted in Premiere, August 2000
"I always wanted to do a musical. I auditioned for 'Evita'. After all, Evita Peron was an Argentine, a Latina like me. So if Madonna does a good job, I'll be the first to say 'F***ing Madonna rocks.' But if she doesn't, I'll be the first one to say, 'She sucks.'" - Jennifer Lopez in GQ, September 1996

"I sat through 'West Side Story' about 37 times because it was the only movie about my people. I never wanted to be that wimpy Maria who sits around pining for her guy. I wanted to be Anita, who danced her way to the top." - Lopez quoted in Chicago Sun-Times, June 22, 1998
"I want everything. I want family. I want to do good work. I want love. I want to be comfortable. I think of people like Cher and Bette Midler and Diana Ross and Barbra Streisand. That's always been the kind of career I'd hoped to have. I want it all." - Lopez quoted in Entertainment Weekly, Oct. 9, 1998

"I want to be the Latin in American cinema. We need somebody to be a star for the times. If it's me, that's fine; but if it's not, I just hope it's somebody real soon. Doing Latino roles is important, but so is being considered for roles that are non-Latino. Because then you're just being seen as an actress who has the ability to bring people into the theater, which is what's important in Hollywood. When you talk about being a major player, that's what it means: people whose names bring people to the movies, like Pfeiffer, Schwarzenegger. I'm going to find a way to do that, too." - Lopez on her goals to Us magazine, April 1997

"It's not just that she's beautiful, she's charismatic. It's an energy, an activity behind the eyes that's so compelling. When you look at her onscreen, you're interested. She just has that star thing." - director Steven Soderbergh quoted in Premiere, February 1999

"Jennifer is the one with the drive to put it all together. She's in a tough world, but you've got to realize who the person is. She was always very competitive. She's had that drive since she was a baby. I recall asking her why she was going out for track. I thought she'd get outclassed, because she'd never done anything like that. If she starts something, all that happens is she gets better. She got to the point where she was competing with the big girls, she got called to Madison Square Garden for the Colgate Games." - Lopez's father David on his daughter's determination, quoted in Rolling Stones, Feb. 15, 2001

"Jennifer still comes to the Bronx and sleeps on her mother's couch. She can live a superstar life, but when we're in the studio, she orders Chinese from, like, the place next door. One day when we were doing this album, she left the studio and hopped in a taxi because she didn't want to wait for a car. I was so scared for her I sent my engineer to take the cab ride with her. She's got a little bit of thug in her; I always tell her that." - producer Cory Rooney on Lopez, quoted in Rolling Stone, Feb. 15, 2001

"Maybe I was a little bit careless in the past," she says. "I'm not a perfect person. I make mistakes. I just feel like I'm in a better place about who I am. I follow my heart. That's the one thing I can say about myself. And I love that about myself." - Lopez quoted to InStyle magazine, August 2004

"The first time we see Jennifer in 'Mi Familia' it's through the eyes of the gardener she will marry. Then it cuts to her first close-up on film. And for it, I used a silent-film technique: I put an iris around her, you know, where there's a circle around her face and everything else is blacked out? In that one shot, everyone knew she was a movie star." - director, Gregory Nava to Premiere, August 2000

"There's an aura about her," says David Maldonado, co-writer-producer of the film 'El Cantante.' "An aura of a secure person. Her accomplishments and power add to her natural beauty." - from People magazine, May 8, 2006

"Where I come from, you got a job as a bank teller and got married, and being driven didn't mean wanting to be a star, it meant wanting to be a lawyer instead of a secretary." - Lopez quoted to Talk, March 2000

"You go through what you're meant to go through," she says. "It's not all going to be rosy beautiful apple orchards along the way. We make choices for reasons we think are good. And you have great intentions at the beginning and they don't turn out right and it hurts and it's wrong and you stumble and you fall." - Lopez quoted to Ladies' Home Journal, January 2003
"You know what the great thing about Selena was? As a Latin woman in The United States, you're taught that you should be skinnier, that you shouldn't have such a big butt. You feel self-conscious. I did. I was really thin, but I had a booty on me that you would not believe, like two potatoes on sticks. But Selena went out there and wore tight things and showed her butt and all of sudden, young girls were like, 'You know what? I'm beautiful.' She embraced the fact that she was Latin and showed the world that there is beauty in diversity." - Jennifer Lopez in Movieline, October 1996

Her official website is
In April 2006, Lopez sued ex-husband Ojani Noa to stop publication of a tell-all book he's been shopping around. Her lawsuit claims that Noa offered to stop pursuing publication if she paid him $5 million.

In December 1999, Lopez and her companion Sean 'Puffy' Combs (aka Puff Daddy) were arrested in connection with a shooting at a NYC nightclub after the vehicle in which they were passengers was spotted leaving the scene. Lopez was questioned for several hours but no charges were filed against her.

Jennifer Lopez, alluding to allegations that her record deal was linked to a rumored relationship with Sony chief Tommy Mattola: "You work so hard to prove what you can do; you get your movies, your record deals, and then people act as if it's so easy as to sleep with someone to get it. I don't like the innuendo of it." - quoted to Premiere, August 1998

On rediscovering her passion for music while starring in "Selena": "When I did the movie, I realized how much music was a part of me, something that I just couldn't suppress any longer. I missed the singing, the dancing and the interaction with the public. You just don't get that when you are working in film and TV." - Lopez quoted in New York Post, June 1, 1999

Sean 'Puffy' Combs' lawyer Ed Hayes on Jennifer Lopez and the 1999 club shooting incident: "When I was talking to her, she had tremendous focus and charisma, and if she appeared to be a mess, it was only as a way to manipulate the cops. Of course she cried, but that does not mean she didn't have total control of the situation. I remember that we were surrounded by detectives and officers with their tongues hanging out, and before she turned to walk away, she gave them a little wiggle with her hips that made them smile. The woman is a giant." - Quoted to The Daily Telegraph, Sep. 2, 2000
