Born in the Bronx, a stronghold of Latino immigrants in New York, daughter of a couple of Puerto Ricans - Guadalupe Rodriguez and David Lopez - Jennifer Lopez brings her Latin blood and famous derrière to a commercial for a brewery and Sapucaí.

"The director of production, Heitor Dhalia, also noted the strong personality of Jennifer:" She is thorough,very detailed and very, very professional. It is the kind of personality it takes to step in, and deliver when needed "
Achieving perfection was already the focus of Jennifer when, at age 18, left home to follow her dream of becoming famous. "Since childhood, I did all the time was to sing, dance and act.I just knew that was what I wanted to do with my life. And either get there or die trying. "And that was decisive in determining that she would become a phenomenon - and build a fortune estimated at $ 250 million. "I think I never feel completely satisfied, I want to always improve. Regarding my career I really am a perfectionist, because I am passionate about what I do, "she told the NY Rock website.
One of the first celebrities to become an international brand name, Jennifer is now a businesswoman - with a clothing label, producer, brand perfume and a restaurant. Accumulating impressive numbers as an artist - 55 million albums sold and more than 20 films - in addition to being the American Idol judge alongside rocker Steven Tyler and present the reality show Viva: The Chosen along with ex-husband, Latin singer Marc Antony
Marc, who Jennifer divorced last July after seven years of marriage, is the father of her twins, Max and Emme, both three . After a long silence, she first talked about divorce in January, on the Late Night With David Letterman. "We know each other so well ... but we had our moments. At the same time things really couldn't work out in our marriage, things didn't go right, "she said . A few months after the official announcement of the split, Jennifer had a romance with dancer Casper Smart, 24, who came with her to Brazil. Talking about it however she doesn't like, despite pressure from the international media, commenting on the age difference between the two - 18 years. It was just a question about the relationship that ended the press conference here in Brazil.
Before that, however, she answered questions about their children and about Rodrigo Santoro, who she plays opposite in the film What to Expect When You're Expecting, which debuts in May. "I am a loving mother. Too much. Max is very driven, always giving me work. I may be strict, but can not be harsh with him. "Although taking in tow the two in almost all her travel and work commitments, they did not come to Brazil -"It was a quick trip and it would be hard to them, "justified Lopez
Displacing Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie and other beautiful Hollywood actresses, Jennifer was voted the most beautiful woman in the world last year by People magazine. "I feel honored after I have over 25 years," she said at the time. "And let no one imagine that it's easy! This takes time and a lot of work. The giant television screens HD spares no one! "

With training almost every day of swimming, running and biking, lost in a few months the 20 pounds I gained during pregnancy. As for food, says he does not do anything special, just use common sense. "I try to watch what you like. There is not much science in it, unfortunately, "she told U.S. Marie Claire. "One thing that works for me is to have a goal as being good for a photo shoot. Another is to be careful of the portions. A little piece will not kill anyone, just wanting not eat the whole package. "
