Jennifer Lopez’s Fame Audit
June 13, 2002 – Fametracker.com did a fame audit for Jennifer Lopez today, saying while her fame level is that of Julia Roberts, it only deserves to be at the level of Edie Falco. MMF writes, “It’s her public exploits, much more than her creative output, that have fueled Lopez’s ascent. As recently as 1998, she was just another starlet, a Latina Charlize Theron, desperate enough for exposure to star in a B-movie like ‘Anaconda.’ Then, in 1999, she did something brazen and, frankly, remarkably smart: she concocted a persona and thrust herself front-and-center on the public stage.”
