Selena Quintanilla's Family Talks About the Movie Selena

Selena's Sister Lived With Jennifer Lopez While She Filmed the 1997 Movie

Selena Quintanilla's sister, Suzette, and father, Abraham, sat down with Entertainment Tonight for what might be the most candid interview the late Tejano singer's family has ever done about the 1997 movie Selena, featuring Jennifer Lopez.

In the clip, Suzette opens up about living with J Lo while she was preparing for the movie. "She asked a lot of questions — how was this, how did she do this? — we watched videos together. I guess really trying to vibe our family, not just who Selena was a person, but us as a whole," Suzette said of that time.

But there were even more revealing moments: Abraham set the record straight saying the "washing machine" dance scene by the beach never happened but the bustier freak-out sure did, while Suzette said the family avoids the film's ending, which touches on Selena's untimely passing.
