    Here's What The Cast Of "Selena" Looked Like Then Vs. What They Look Like Now

    Twenty-five years later and still willing to do anything for Selenas!

    2022 marks 25 years since the release of Selena, the film honoring the life of legendary singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez.

    The film was and is iconic for many reasons – it made Jennifer Lopez the highest-paid Latina actor ever at the time when she earned $1 million for the title role, it was chosen to be added to the National Film Registry in 2021, and it gave us the memorable phrase, "Anything for Selenas!"

    Here's a look at the Selena cast members, then vs. now:
