SOT Jennifer Lopez: "I think it's the one that I probably most like and can relate to the most because she lives in the Bronx and grew up there and I know what that is and I know what it is to live there and get on the train and go to work every day, I used to work in a bank and still want more, have dreams and be kind of afraid to take the risk and then go for it. So, I so understood everything that was going on inside of her." 10. Film clip "Maid In Manhattan" 11. SOT Jennifer Lopez: "What I realise is that I really do have to keep a balance, I have to give a certain amount of time to the movies and then I have to do the music and give time to that. Everybody has been asking me are you going on tour. It's such a long commitment that I would be away from movies for so long, so it's hard to juggle it and I don't ever want to cheat one for the other because they are both so important to me." 12.

SOT Natasha Richardson: "I love romantic comedies and I haven't done a part like this before, playing a very silly, spoilt, funny rich girl. I thought I could root it in reality on a couple of people that I know. Then I got to shoot in New York and work with Ralph Fiennes who is one of our great friends and Wayne Wang - there were a few reasons for me doing it." 16. Arrival 17. Cutaway press 18. SOT (name to follow): "I get to play Natasha Richardson's best friend, the characters name is Rachel and we take parties together, that's about it, I'm like her sidekick." 19.

SOT Tyler Posey (Ty Ventura): "It was really fun to work with her, it was cool because she treated me like I was her real son, it seemed like she was my mum." 23. Film clip "Maid In Manhattan" 24.

In a romantic comedy what you really want to do is go away smiling and have fun with the movie but at the same time when a movie like this it touches on a few little themes and social issues in the world, you want them to have hope." 27.

Film clip "Maid In Manhattan" LOPEZ AND AFFLECK LOOK MAID FOR EACH OTHER AT MOVIE PREMIERE Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck stepped out in New York on Sunday evening for the premiere of J-Lo's new romantic comedy "Maid in Manhattan" Lopez, 33, became engaged to the 30-year-old film star in October, although no date has been set for the wedding. Her second marriage ended earlier in the year. In a recent interview with Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper, she said with Affleck, she has finally find true love. Lopez, who also has a successful singing career, said she was scared at first by the intensity of their relationship, which she claimed never to have experienced before. The couple met on the set of the film "Gigli", a crime thriller in which Lopez plays an assassin. Affleck proposed during the making of their second film together, a romantic comedy called "Jersey Girl". In her latest film outing, Lopez plays Marisa Ventura, a single mother born and bred in the boroughs of New York City, who works as a maid in a first-class Manhattan hotel. By a twist of fate and mistaken identity, Marisa meets Christopher Marshall (played by Ralph Fiennes), a handsome heir to a political dynasty, who believes that she is a guest at the hotel. Fate steps in and throws the unlikely pair together for one night. When Marisa's true identity is revealed, the two find that they are worlds apart - even though the distance separating them is just a subway ride between Manhattan and the Bronx. The film, directed by Wayne Wang ("Smoke", "The Joy Luck Club") also stars Natsha Richardson and Bob Hoskins. CLEARANCE DETAILS Maid In Manhattan Columbia Pictures 1 310 244 7554
