Lopez is coming off of two seasons as a judge on American Idol and a toplining acting gig with What to Expect When You’re Expecting. She also voiced a character in Ice Age: Continental Drift.

Her next big film role will be starring opposite Jason Statham in Parker, Taylor Hackford’s adaptation of a Donald Westlake novel. 

On the music front, Lopez is on a North American tour with Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias through Sept. 2; the next dates are Aug. 16 and 17 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. She then embarks on a world tour that starts Oct. 5 in Lisbon, Portugal, and wraps with a series of Australian dates in December.

Her most recent studio album, last year's Love?, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

Lopez has a collection of clothing and shoes for Kohl’s and a line of fragrances for Coty. The latter has been called the most successful celebrity fragrance line and was one of the factors helping her land in the top spot of the Forbes Celebrity 100 List.

She continues to be repped by Benny Medina and attorneys Bob Wallerstein and Barry Hirsch.
