For years Jennifer Lopez has dazzled us with her acting, singing, and dancing. I really think this triple threat can do it all!
And in a new Netflix documentary, Jennifer Lopez: Halftime, we get a look at what it took for the star to become the icon that she is today. The film also highlights her evolution as a Latina, a mother, and an artist who takes agency in her career and uses her voice for a greater purpose.
The entertainer’s career began in 1991 when she appeared as a Fly Girl dancer on In Living Color. In acting, her first leading role was the portrayal of Selena in the movie of the same name, becoming the first Hispanic actress to earn over $1 million for a film. She then took on the music scene when she debuted her studio album On the 6 in 1999.
She’s done so much and has racked up an impressive career. And as Halftime tells us, she’s just getting started! But have you ever wondered what the icon’s net worth is?
How much is J.Lo worth in 2022?
Lopez is one of Hollywood’s biggest A-List celebrities today. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she is worth $400 million. The star also earns a salary of around $40 million per year.
While a lot of this money comes from her entertainment career as as an actress, singer, and dancer, Lopez is also a businesswoman. She’s had many beauty and fashion projects over the years like her own fragrance collection, makeup line, and skincare brand.
In comparison, ex-boyfriend Alex Rodriguez is worth $350 million for playing 22 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB), as well as his business ventures. The current beau in her life, actor and director Ben Affleck, is worth $150 million.
Even today, it’s not always common to see women making more than their male counterparts. And that includes when they’re doing the same job or role. J.Lo has worked so hard to get to where she is today, and she deserves both the audience’s and monetary recognition!
