Jennifer López embraces Latin roots in all-Spanish album, 2 films
Associated Press Writer

(AP): Jennifer López says she is fulfilling her dreams with the upcoming release of an all-Spanish album ``Como ama una mujer,'' or ``How a Woman Loves,'' and two Hispanic-themed films this year.

``I wanted to sing in Spanish from the beginning of my recording career,'' the New Yorker of Puerto Rican origin told The Associated Press.

The album, which will be released in the U.S. on March 27 after more than two years of work, was mainly produced by López' husband Marc Anthony.

López also produced and stars in ``Bordertown,'' a film about the killings of hundreds of women in and around the city of Ciudad Juarez, México, on the U.S. border.
In the film, directed by Gregory Nava and costarring Antonio Banderas, López plays a reporter sent to the city to investigate what she says is ``one of the world's most shocking and disturbing, underreported crimes against humanity.''

López also has a leading role in the film ``El cantante,'' starring her husband as Puerto Rican salsa singer Hector Lavoe. Directed by Leon Ichaso, López plays Puchy, the singer's long-suffering wife.

``It's such a passion project, it took four years to make it,'' she said. ``It's a very exciting, passionate, intense movie of the tragic life of Hector Lavoe.''

Both films will open in U.S. theaters in the summer.

López soon plans to promote ``Como ama una mujer'' in the United States, Spain, México and ``everywhere we can.''
