People en Español’s Hottest Stars of 2007

New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–November 1, 2007–Jennifer Lopez, actresses Kate Del Castillo, Angelica Vale and Adamari Lopez land on the cover of PEOPLE en Español’s annual “Stars of the Year” issue, a look at the hottest and most intriguing stars of the year. Others on the list include singers Luis Miguel, Juan Luis Guerra, and Victor Manuelle, among others.

Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez lands on the “Stars of the Year” list for her accomplishments in 2007 including her first Spanish language CD, Como ama una mujer, and her new English album called Brave, producing and starring in the film El Cantante, and her first tour with husband Marc Anthony. Mexican actress Kate Del Castillo is recognized for her leading roles in the 2007 films Trade and The Black Pimpernel, and next year, she’ll star in four more movies—Julia, Bad Guys, Under the Same Moon and Por vida (For Life.)

PEOPLE en Español crowns Mexican actress Angelica Vale as “comedian of the year” for her role in Univision’s La fea mas bella and Puerto Rican actress Adamari Lopez is named the “year’s comeback” for her successful return to telenovelas as a popular villain. The magazine also recognizes singers Juan Luis Guerra and Victor Manuelle for their big year in music, while TV personality Jackie Guerrido and reggaeton artist Don Omar are named the “couple of the year.” “People may think I have it all,” Don Omar tells the magazine. “But I was really looking for romantic stability… and I was searching for that person who would complement me,” he adds. Guerrido shares how they handle a long distance relationship, since she is based in Miami and Don Omar resides in New York. “Since I’m off Saturdays and Sundays, I travel to where he is… New York or anywhere else,” she says. “It’s not about the hours, but the quality time we spend together.”

Mexican singer Luis Miguel takes home the “dad of the year” title after the birth of his son with soap-opera actress Aracely Arambula, and for mending the estranged relationship with his daughter. (Page 87)
