If anyone knows how to slay date-night style, it's Jennifer Lopez.
The singer, actress, and founder of the soon-to-launch J.Lo Beauty stepped out with her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, in West Hollywood last night. For the outing, Lopez wore a neon-pink knit sweater with a matching Valentino belt, a curve-hugging textured leather skirt, and coordinating snake-print Parlata PVC pumps from her DSW collection. With her hair slicked back into a bun, she accessorized with her signature Samira hoop earrings by Jennifer Fisher, an evolvetogether mask, and a croc-embossed black Hermès Birkin purse.
Recently, Lopez opened up with her friend and former agent, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, for Variety. During their conversation, Lopez and Goldsmith-Thomas reflected on Lopez's decades-long acting and performing career, with Lopez sharing how she had to fight for one of her most iconic rom-com roles.
"I had to kind of break out of [stereotypical roles] and convince somebody to put me in the first romantic comedy, which I think was The Wedding Planner. … I was, like you said, kind of hot at the time, and you were my agent, and you were asking for a certain price that you thought I merited, and they were buckling back on us," she shared.
"Then, [the film's director] came to one of my record signings, and he said give her whatever she wants. … The idea that somebody like me, from my background, who was a woman, could garner that type of, you know, price in this industry. It was a big deal."
The rest, in regard to Lopez's film career, was history, as she went on to star in more romantic comedies leading up to her defining role as Ramona Vega in 2019's Lorene Scafaria–directed film, Hustlers. Lopez's next film, Marry Me, which costars fellow Latinx music icon Maluma, comes out in February 2021.
