This filmography includes movie trailers when available, so you can get a sneak preview of a film if you haven't seen it before. Jennifer Lopez (commonly called J-Lo) was a Fly Girl on In Living Color before her breakout role in her first movie, the 1997 film Selena, made her a star.

The best Jennifer Lopez movies of all time prove that she is one of the top actresses currently working. Along with being an accomplished singer, Lopez has appeared in plenty of blockbusters and critically-acclaimed movies, earning awards and accolades along the way. JLo's highest grossing movies have been well-received at the box office and his lifetime box office total exceeds $1.2 billion.
