People en Español: Jennifer Lopez 'Most Powerful Latina in the US'
People en Español named the singer and actress Jennifer Lopez as one of the most powerful Latino women in the United States. She topped the list, which features 24 other incredible women.
Lopez, 44, with a $250 million net worth and a cumulative film gross of over $2 billion, has used her riches to fund her production company, Nuyorican Production; and to benefit charities: the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club, the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, and the American Red Cross. She also finances her own charity, the Lopez Family Foundation which assists children with cancer. Aside from charity work and managing a lucrative music, dance and film career, she also produces the LGBT-themed series influenced by her aunt, The Fosters; all of which certainly makes her the ideal choice for one of the most powerful Latinas in the United States.
During the Nuyorican's interview with People en Español, which took place at her Hidden Hills home, she updated the publication about her life and about a book that she's developing about her separation from Marc Anthony.
Some of the other powerful women featured on the coveted list were Kate del Castillo, ambassador working against human trafficking in Mexico; Ana Maria Polo, media host and attorney; Rosario Dawson, actress and philanthropist; Sandra Smester, TV executive; Rosita Hurtado, fashion designer; and many other powerful players in the music, business, and film industry.
Oct. 24th, the magazine will hold its annual luncheon, honoring Jennifer Lopez and the other women for their contributions. It will take place in Miami, Fla. and will be MC'd by TV host Ilia Calderon.
