Jennifer Lopez Talks about the Making of ‘Selena’



“If you could open the doors to [Selena’s] heart, there would be sunshine.”

Even more than 20 years after her death and the making of her movie, Selena continues to resonate in the memory and life of her fans. And the making of her movie is just as everyone imagines: a rollercoaster of emotions.
10 years after making Selena, the cast reunited to recall the experience, and as painful as it is to remember, it’s surreal to realize that everyone was meant to be there, especially Jennifer Lopez.
