Jennifer Lopez has an alter ego.
Her name is Lola Lopez and she is known for being ‘playful and carefree,’ the star revealed on Tuesday when debuting her new alcohol brand Delola.
The 53-year-old actress and singer also said she wants Lola to come out more and have fun.
‘I realized the importance of enjoying life,’ said the wife of Ben Affleck in a video shared to Instagram.
The Shotgun Wedding actress also said that she hopes to spend more time with ‘family and friends’ in the future after ‘grinding’ out work for decades.
And one of the best places she does that is on the Italian coast where she feels a sense of peace with the warm and friendly locals. That is where her new ad was filmed as she sipped her cocktail with pals all around her.
