Actor, Singer, Dancer, an ambitious triple threat who went from dancer to top shelf actress to best-selling recording artist, Jennifer Lopez was able to maintain a high level of publicity throughout a majority of her career, even when. Tribarazzi: This movie magic takes a long spell.
This is so not glamorous. The cast and crew of Bordertown, starring Jennifer Lopez and Martin Sheen, have enrique been shooting and reshooting for 12 hours so far Monday on this first day of production at the same building that houses The Tribune. And still there are at least three hours to go before its a wrap.
Thats Hollywood talk for we are outta here. All this work for what amounts to little more than four pages of script. Thats an ambitious day, one production assistant says.

One woman just misses Lopez ascending the stairs to the office where Mondays scene is being shot.
After two hours, the woman leaves, the smile she arrived with long faded. But we see Lopez close enough to note the perfect skin, the gold cross necklace, the silver bracelets.
On set she is dressed in simple slacks and jacket and untucked blouse. And we think, yes, sure, she maybe could portray us reporters if we had just kept up our health spa memberships. Lopez is not smiling, either.
