Jen­nifer Lopez, J.Lo or Jenny From the Block—no mat­ter what you call her, she’s got it go­ing on as an ac­tress, singer, pro­ducer and en­tre­pre­neur. She has re­turned for sea­son two of her NBC se­ries Shades of Blue, Sun­days at 10 p.m. ET, as NYPD de­tec­tive Har­lee San­tos. Here are five facts about the 47-year-old na­tive of New York City’s Bronx neigh­bor­hood. 1. When she re­ceived her first $1 mil­lion pay­check, from her 1997 movie Selena, she sur­prised her mother with a Cadil­lac.

2. Al­ways into fit­ness, her nick­name at the gym was “La Guitarra” be­cause her body curved like a gui­tar.

3. She and 2002–2004 fi­ancé Ben Af­fleck were the Hol­ly­wood cou­ple, aka “Ben­nifer,” that made mash-up names pop­u­lar.

4. Lopez named her first al­bum On the 6 after the sub­way train that shut­tled her be­tween her Bronx home and Man­hat­tan dance classes.

5. As of 2016, Lopez has re­leased 26 fra­grances—mainly for women but also one for men.
