Rosie Perez vs. Jennifer Lopez

This means war! Rosie Perez has harbored a grudge against Jennifer Lopez for years, ever since they were both on In Living Color, where Perez, 49, was a choreographer and Lopez, 44, was a Fly Girl.

In her upcoming book, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life, Perez says J.Lo (even before she was called that) had a diva ’tude, and that fellow dancers weren’t happy. “All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage,” Perez writes.

The two actresses eventually got into it backstage. Lopez said that she was sick of Perez picking on her and “went off” like “some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest!” writes Perez, who claims that Lopez continued to gossip about the actress after hitting it big. We doubt the book will cause a detente.

But on Saturday, after taking in a Broadway matinee of After Midnight with his wife and their two daughters, a woman in the audience yelled, “I think he did it!” according to The New York Post. A source told the paper, “Woody seemed unfazed.” The Oscar winner has been under close scrutiny since his daughter Dylan’s child molestation allegations recently re-emerged.
