Wanda Sykes on working with Jennifer Lopez

Thursday, May 12th, 2005

When Conan O’Brien asked Wanda Sykes what it was like working with “J. Lo,” Wanda joked about Jennifer no longer wanting to be called by that name:

“It’s ‘Jennifer Lopez.’ I had to sign a contract and everything.

But I love working with Jennifer, because, the poor girl, the paparazzi chase her around and all that stuff so that gave me free reign. I could do whatever I wanted to do, because they were all paying attention to Jennifer. I could snort coke off of a dead hooker and nobody’d pay any attention to me.”

Lopez Struggles With Painting Problems

Friday, May 6th, 2005

Jennifer Lopez is struggling with her painting hobby because every time she puts brush to canvas her efforts come out grey.

The pop star and actress has developed a love of painting after seeing how the art helps calm third husband MARC ANTHONY down, but she’s beginning to accept she’s no artist.

She says, “I try. It looks so nice – all the colours and everything and you get all excited – but I suck at it. Whenever I paint it comes out grey.

“Now I have a little bit of a series of greys. I may be onto something, who knows… It’s definitely abstract… I have tons of grey paintings.”

Lopez admits that she thinks her impatience is to blame.

She adds, “Marc always tells me, ‘Let it dry,’ and I don’t have no patience. So I keep painting. I’m like, ‘No, I can make it better if I do this.'”

Jennifer Lopez Laughs It Off

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2005

Los Angeles – Jennifer Lopez doesn’t care a bit when people comment on her curves. In fact, she wore a light gray-blue Grecian-influenced satin gown to the premiere of her new romantic comedy “Monster-in-Law” last Friday night in Westwood that showed off her body to anyone who was looking – and naturally, everyone was, including her husband Marc Anthony (in a complementary gray suit) and her co-stars Jane Fonda and Wanda Sykes.

As Lopez tells it, she likes having the womanly body she’s got, so much so that in the movie she’s willing to have jokes made about her shape and size.

“I think that since the beginning, since I’ve kind of come into the public eye, there’s always been something about that, where I’m not your kind of typical size three, very tall and thin type of actress. I think that’s always been a good positive message that I’ve been able to have been associated with which I’m very proud of,” Lopez says. “So I don’t mind making fun of myself. I like making fun of myself. I like making people laugh. So if it’s talking about where Jane Fonda called me ‘fat’ [in the film], I mean, she could. In a way, Jane Fonda, the workouts, the whole thing, she was always kind of like that.”

In the comedy, Fonda is a horrible mother, trying to keep her son (played by “Alias” hottie Michael Vartan) from marrying Lopez. The jokes about their difference in size fly fast and furious, but that’s just the way Lopez likes it.

“So she’s eating healthy and you see me eating extra cake, and you know I don’t need to eat extra cake. I just do in real life – and in the movie. So I think that it’s nice to poke fun at that and know that you can still be attractive and beautiful or whatever, no matter if you do eat the extra cake. So I think that it’s a positive thing.”

Lopez might not have felt so positive about the anti-fur protestors haranguing her from across the street of the gala premiere (her clothing line features a number of real fur designs), but she definitely didn’t show much concern for them as she walked the red carpet alongside a slew of celebrities who showed up to see her take on Fonda for laughs.

Hollywood females of every size, both super skinny and more rounded, came out in force, from Sally Field, Stockard Channing, Marg Helgenberger, Jacqueline Bisset, and Elaine Stritch to Alyssa Milano, Annie Parisse, Sofia Milos, and even ice skating champ Oksana Baiul. No one was actually wearing fur, but who wears a coat in Hollywood, anyway? The big fashion question of the night didn’t have anything to do with fur, but with why Randy Quaid showed up with his hair bleached blond and wearing a dress. But no one ever figured out that weird one.

Jennifer Lopez wants to be first female US president

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2005

BERLIN (AFP) – After conquering Hollywood and the pop charts, Latina superstar Jennifer Lopez says she is ready to wrestle George W. Bush out of the White House.

“I’m a total powerhouse. If you ask me, I’d like to become the first female president — that would be really cool,” J.Lo told German celebrity glossy Bravo in an issue to be published Wednesday.

“The first thing I would do is redecorate the White House — it doesn’t look very cozy.”

“La Lopez”, 35, said the best break from her growing entertainment empire is housekeeping.

“Believe it or not — I clean my house! All the stress disappears when I’m straightening up,” she said, in comments published in German.

Lopez said she was sure after two divorces and her “Bennifer” engagement debacle with actor Ben Affleck that her marriage with singer Marc Anthony would last.

“I have a very good feeling and am sure that we will never part,” he said.

“I think he would father beautiful children.”
