No Baby Yet For Jen & Marc

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

Do Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have a baby on the way?

With every press junket we do with Ms. Lopez, we at Access have to ask, when are you gonna have a baby? What day? Boy or girl? What are you gonna name it?

“They force you to ask those questions, don’t they,” Jennifer smiled. “They do. They are, like, don’t come back without asking the baby question.”

And Tuesday, the answer is a resounding – not pregnant!

Despite reports that she and husband, Marc Anthony, were spotted stocking up on baby items, the couple, who flew to Puerto Rico Tuesday morning to continue shooting “El Cantante, are not expecting an addition.On Monday night’s “Tonight Show,” in a purple and white-striped, floor-length dress, Jen offered up even more evidence that she’s not expecting.

“I had to smoke for the last two movies I was in, so, I had to learn how to smoke and everything, so, that was a big deal for me,” Jennifer told Jay Leno. “You learn the habit of it, you learn how to do it and inhale.”

Another round of Jennifer Lopez baby rumors

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

Get ready for another round of J. Lo baby rumors.

A source says that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have been doing “tons of shopping” for baby clothes lately.

“He was at Fred Segal [on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles] last week and bought a Guys Infant Gear diaper bag for $120,” says a source. “He said something that made it pretty clear that it wasn’t a gift — that he intended to use it — but I don’t want to repeat it or he’ll know who talked to you.”

Jennifer Lopez to produce Reggaeton movie

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

All rights to ‘Reggaeton,’ an original screenplay written by Albert Leon have been acquired by Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Sony BMG plans to produce the project, in conjunction with Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions, through the recently launched SONY BMG Film.

‘Reggaeton,’ SONY BMG Film’s first feature, will be produced by Jennifer Lopez and Simon Fields for Nuyorican Productions and by Sofia Sondervan on behalf of SONY BMG Film.

The picture will be shot on location in New York and Puerto Rico with production expected to commence in Spring 2006.

‘Reggaeton’ is the story of Rob, a talented 21-year-old from the South Bronx whose dreams of hip-hop stardom are dashed when a run-in with local thugs makes him flee the city to hide in Puerto Rico with the father he never knew. There he finds love with a street-savvy local girl, CC, and discovers a new genre of music, a mix of hip-hop and reggae. The locals call it Reggaeton. Rob partners with his half brother, a DJ, and together they make groundbreaking strides and are poised to become Reggaeton stars. But, when a corrupt music producer “discovers” Rob and offers him a record deal that brings him and CC back to New York, a new conflict threatens his romance and his budding career.

‘Reggaeton’ is one of the most original scripts we’ve come across since we launched this division,” said Sofia Sondervan. “We expect it will attract a top-notch director and cast.”

“This project is a great way to launch SONY BMG Film,” said Andrew Lack, CEO, SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. ‘Reggaeton’ perfectly meets our mandate to develop features that create a compelling blend of music and film.“

Hip-hop cultures most beautiful Puerto Rican – Jennifer Lopez commented, “This script is a perfect fit for us because not only is it a compelling story with great characters, but it also combines two elements that are very close to my heart — music and Puerto Rico.“

“We are excited to be working with SONY BMG to bring this timely material to audiences,” said Simon Fields. “The synergistic relationship of our two companies makes this a very strong and exciting project.“

Janet Sales, Nuyorican’s head of development, brought “Reggaeton” to SONY BMG Film. The deal was negotiated by Andrew Ross on behalf of SONY BMG, Bob Wallerstein for Nuyorican Productions and Matt Leipzig and Jordan Bayer at Original Artists for Albert Leon.

SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT has a stable of Reggaeton artists including Voltio, Calle 13, Alexis y Fido, Zion y Lennox, John Eric and M.R.P. as well as a label deal with the highly influential Puerto Rican imprint, White Lion.

Jennifer Lopez Drives LL Cool J to Lose His Cool

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

If there’s one woman who can make LL Cool J lose his cool, Jennifer Lopez is it. And she manages to do just that on “Control Myself,” the first single from his forthcoming album Todd Smith.

“It was a lot of fun,” LL said about his second collaboration with J. Lo. The two previously hooked up for the duet “All I Have,” in 2002. “Me and J. Lo work really well together. People like the last song we did, it was a big song and did really well. But this one is a little more club and a little more cool. Hype Williams just shot the video and J. Lo is dancing in the video. It’s wild. I feel real good about that, it’s real different for both of us.”

Jermaine Dupri produced the record, which has both a throwback beat and flow. Uncle L’s delivery sounds like something straight out of “Going Back to Cali.”

“I’m battling desire,” he said about a woman he meets in the club who seduces him onto the dance floor. “Lord help me douse this fire/ This internal inferno, hotter than a shot of Cuervo.”

On the chorus, Lopez tells L that it’s hard for her not to jump on him right then and there. She also tells him he has what it takes to make her leave her man. Cool J responds by telling her she has what it takes to bring out his bad-boy side.

The man born James Todd Smith says we’re going to see more sides to him on his album, due March 21. LL titled it Todd Smith because, he said, “I was so open, opening up so much more on every level. Why not open up and let people know it’s a peek inside of me and my process and my life? I think the [album] accomplishes that.”

Juelz Santana, Freeway, Pharrell Williams, 112 and Ginuwine appear on the LP, as does Mary J. Blige via “Favorite Flavor,” where the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul compares LL to such sweets as “caramel” and “lemon drops with chocolate kisses.”

“All I wanna do is show you, boy, that I taste good too,” MJB sings while L raps, “Mix me and you/ And we can’t go wrong.”

Lyfe Jennings sings the chorus on “Freeze.” That record is about a man who can’t settle down and knows the woman that he might potentially marry is leaving him.

“Don’t change, don’t go, don’t leave, just freeze,” Jennings croons. “I know it’s a lot to ask.”

“I tried to put together something that would be a little more inclusive and open and interesting to people,” Cool described of his album. “I approached the writing a little differently. It was more collaborative as far as the writing, in terms of the song selection and ideas.”

The rapper has a new film, “Last Holiday” co-starring Queen Latifah, hitting theaters this week. The Queen plays a woman who learns she has only three weeks to live and Cool J’s character is her love interest (see “LL Cool J And Queen Latifah Finally Hook Up — In ‘Last Holiday’ “).

Jennifer Lopez starring in new movie Bridge and Tunnel

Friday, January 13th, 2006

Jennifer Lopez will topline New Line Cinema’s Bridge and Tunnel, portraying a stock trader who relies on a suburban teen who day-trades on his home PC, reports Variety.

Production on the romantic comedy is expected to begin in late spring, with Tribeca’s Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro producing and Greg Berlanti directing. The studio is still looking to cast the male lead.

The first episode of South Beach came in 16th place last night for its time slot, and in the second hour it dropped to 17th. Compared with the last new episode of “Veronica Mars” (households: 2.4/4; adults 18-49: 1.4 on 12/7/05), “Beach’s” two-episode average was off a whopping 33.33% in households and 28.57% in adults 18-49 (thefutoncritic).

This is very bad news for the show.

Wednesday, January 11th, 2006

Hollywood hunk GEORGE CLOONEY wishes he could create a flawless life partner using different parts of his actress co-stars.

The ONE FINE DAY star, who split from longterm love LISA SNOWDON last year (05), envisions a romantic future with a MICHELLE PFEIFFER lookalike, and a perfect personality.

He says, “The ideal woman is a mixture.

“She should have NICOLE KIDMAN’s laughter, then the personality of JULIA ROBERTS and the aspect of Michelle Pfeiffer, the quintessence of beauty.

“And finally the ambition of JENNIFER LOPEZ.”
