Before becoming a pop culture icon, Jennifer Lopez struggled as a dancer every day as she made very little money. Lopez, who became the first Hispanic actress to earn over $1 million for a film, was once arrested just to save a few dollars. Today, Lopez boasts a net worth of over $400 a million, but the backstory behind America’s heartthrob indeed shakes one’s soul.
Jennifer Lopez Got In Trouble With The Law For Avoiding Fare
Jennifer Lopez‘s 2022 documentary Halftime, takes the audience through the struggles of her early days. Before becoming a “triple threat entertainer”, the actress, who now boasts a $400 million fortune, took the subway just like other New Yorkers. She said:
“I’m a simple Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx, who just is getting on the train and come down here with all my big dreams and just trying to make them come true.”
In the documentary, the Anaconda actress teased her skills of getting through the subway turnstile without having to pay the fare. She continued, “First, you gotta look around, and then you just go under.” But once, the master of this art found herself in trouble with law authorities.
Lopez shared that she and her sister had only one token. As they were trying to sneak in and heart the fare, they were arrested after a failed attempt. She explained, “When the train was busy enough, you could get away with it.” That day, it wasn’t, and it got a little harder to pull off. Both had to work overtime to pay the fine.
Bennifer’s It Couple Status Is Priceless!
Apart from her willpower, one thing that has remained constant in her life is Ben Affleck. From meeting the then-rising actor in 2001; indulging in PDA in the now-iconic Jenny From the Block video; getting engaged in 2002; postponing the wedding; getting over each other; to exchanging forever vows, the two have been through a real roller coaster ride.
Despite the massive stardom and all that fortune, it is fair to suggest that their status as the It couple remains the most priceless thing in each other’s life. After J-Lo’s numerous affairs and Affleck’s failed marriage, the couple reunited in 2021 – almost after two decades. But this time, the two ensured to never let go of each other ever again.
After their stars fell in place, Bennifer tied the knot in a surprise Las Vegas wedding at midnight on July 12, 2022. Both decided to have a low-key ceremony in a chapel. This was when Lopez declared, “They were right when they said, all you need is love.”
Today, the American Idol judge and the Good Will Hunting actor are loaded, but they’re more grateful to have “a new wonderful family of five amazing children” and a life that they have never had more reason to look forward to!
