The divorce of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony comes at a strange time for the multi-hyphenate star.
Lopez’s career, which took a turn for the lukewarm a few years back, is hotter than ever, thanks largely in part to her gig on “American Idol.”
She’s also a new mum, a licensing mogul and a film star on the verge of reinventing her movie skills once again.
But how did she get here?
Then came her major big-screen break: Lopez played the title role in a biopic about the singer Selena. The film was well-received -- and the soundtrack went platinum.
In 2001, Lopez released her second album, J.Lo. That album went four times platinum -- and gave us Lopez's lasting nickname.
Lopez married for the second time in 2001. Husband #2 was backup dancer Cris Judd. Their marriage ended a year later when Lopez ran off with Ben Affleck.
