Movies: Anaconda, U Turn & Selena

Before she started churning out hit singles or judging wannabee stars, Jenny from the Block starred in a handful of hit films, some of which were released in 1997. The most notable of the crop was Selena, a biopic about the life of Selena Quintanilla-Perez, the late Tejano star who Lopez has long credited as being one of her main musical influences. J-Lo's knockout performance in the film turned heads all over Hollywood.
