Jennifer Lopez Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Congratulations, Jennifer Lopez! The Water Mill resident was awarded the 2,500th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last Thursday, June 20. Lopez attended the celebratory festivities with her 5-year-old twins Max and Emme and boyfriend Casper Smart, as well as Monster In-Law costar Jane Fonda and musical collaborator Pitbull.

At the ceremony, the emotional star fought back tears while she delivered her speech. “I really am overwhelmed. I don’t know, this really feels kind of surreal…,” Lopez said. “It’s awesome.”

As the crowd chanted “JLo, JLo, JLo,” she went on to say that she always wanted to entertain and never thought about being famous or making money. “I just wanted to be good at what I did,” Lopez said. “I wanted people to come see me for what I did, not for who I was.”

Well, it seems she succeeded.

JLo also noted that Sophia Lauren and Fonda were among the women who inspired her career.
