10. U-Turn – 1997
People really took notice of Jennifer Lopez after her performance in U-Turn. She definitely showed off her sex appeal, and her seductive performance helped propel into to her role today as a sex icon. U-Turn featured Jennifer Lopez’s first sex scene, and it was this scene that really stole the show for the whole movie. The film features actors like Joaquin Phoenix and Billy Bob Thorton.
It’s a crime-thriller, with a lot of twists and turns, and Jennifer Lopez’s character is actually quite interesting. It is revealed that Jennifer Lopez’s husband in the movie is actually her father, and he’d been sexually abusing her since she was a child before marrying her.
No one knew she was his daughter because she was an illegitimate child. There are sex scenes with her and her “father,” and also sex scenes with her and another man. It was a pretty smart move for her to do sex scenes this early in her career, because it really got people talking about her and this was great publicity. Screenshots from this movie are some of the hottest pictures of a young Jennifer Lopez.
