JLO and Marc Anthony Make Movies and Music Together

July 24th, 2007 // 5 Comments

The opening of Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez’s film, “El Cantante,” had the famous couple arriving in Puerto Rico yesterday for the the opening of the movie. Based on the life and times of Puerto Rican salsa singer, Hector Lavoe, Lopez and Anthony teamed together on this project taking on the roles of husband and wife on-screen. Cuban director, Leon Ichaso, worked for five years to bring Lavoe’s story to the big screen, and believes that the reaction from Puerto Rican audiences to the film will determine whether or not he was successful in his quest to portray the troubled singer’s life on celluloid.

“It’s tied to a Puerto Rican hero and Puerto Rican music,” Ichaso said. “Everyone will scrutinize whether it was done well or badly, whether we made a mistake here or there.”

Meanwhile, Marc Anthony is excited at the prospect of touring with his famous wife.

“Jennifer has never toured, but I’ve toured all my life. It is something she’s always wanted to do, but she has never had the time. This is where I can step in and say, ‘Oh, my God, this could be fun’, and introduce her to that world.”

God, they’re not sick of each other yet? Sorry, I know that’s a cynical thing to say, but seriously, that’s a LOT of time spent together. I don’t even like being around myself that much.

    He looks like the kind of hombre you’d find running a seedy little nightclub in some El Salavdorian town. Buenos Noches chica.

  2. beyond fake

    Do you actually think they’re a real couple.it all for business.they’re under contract with their manager Simon Fields.She’s been trying to revive her career ever since the bennifer fiasco.America is sick of her so she went for the latino audience and hooked up homely Marc Anthony because nobody cares about him.And viola ! you have the spanish version of Sonny and Cher.Luckily it’s going to be over soon .As soon as that movie bombs.Marc will be out of the picture and she’ll be on to the next idiot

  3. Shootingstar

    I’ve never been a big fan of JLo, but I didn’t realize that she has never been on tour. Surprising.

  4. Diana

    I’m not a fan of her music or movies, but she always looks like a goddess.

  5. Mr. Jones

    Happiness is writen all over Jennifer’s face, It seems like Marc makes her really happy. I think her choice of movies has improved after the Bennifer nightmare. With hits like “Monster in Law”,”An unfinished life” and “Shall we dance” she has proven that her career is far from over. Personally, believe the best is yet to come
