If Naya Rivera has it her way, her career will resemble Jenny from the Block’s.
“It’s insane how gorgeous she is. Jennifer Lopez is a perfect example of what it means to be a mogul and have longevity, but still have people like you,” the Glee star, 26, says in the October issue of Latina.
“She can do this until she chooses not to anymore. I hope I can say that one day, she adds.
Rivera is certainly making her own mark, “starring on Glee this season.
“We’re definitely taking it day by day,” she tells Latina. “Everybody’s really just leaning on each other and trying to do good work.”
