Jennifer Lopez

J.Fo Vs. J.Lo

UPDATED 05/16/2005 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/16/2005 at 01:00 AM EDT

MY BODY, MYSELF, MY BUSINESS
J.Fo's '80s workout empire ("Feel the burn") was once worth $670 million (the old tapes were recently released on DVD). J.Lo's fashion (right) and fragrance businesses are worth an estimated $350 million.

THREE TIMES A BRIDE
Fonda is divorced from (above, from left) director Roger Vadim, politician Tom Hayden and tycoon Ted Turner. Lopez is divorced from restaurateur Ojani Noa and dancer Cris Judd; now she's Mrs. Marc Anthony.

BRUSHES WITH THE LAW
Fonda gave a defiant salute when she was arrested for drug smuggling in 1970 (the case was thrown out—they were vitamins).

Lopez stood by her man, Sean "Puffy" Combs, following a nightclub shooting in 1999. (He was acquitted of all charges.)

PROTEST TARGETS
Three decades later, J.Fo's visit to North Vietnam still draws flak. During a signing for her new memoir, My Life So Far, an angry vet winged her with tobacco spit. And antifur activists have a beef with J.Lo: She uses fox, rabbit and mink in her Sweetface fashion line.

CO-STAR, CO-HART
Gigli turned Jen and Ben Affleck into Bennifer. Alas, no one dubbed Jane and flame Donald Sutherland (in '71's Klute) Fonderland.

WANNA BE A SEX SYMBOL? SLIP INTO SOMETHING SKINTIGHT
J.Fo made a splash as a supervixen in 1968's Barbarella (for years after she found her performance too "politically incorrect"); J.Lo lately suited up just as slinkily in a Pepsi ad.
