A Russian student has revealed she gets mobbed in the street by strangers who think she is Latin singer and actress Jennifer Lopez – even though she’s more than 30 years younger than the megastar.

Annoyed Natalia Mirskikh, from Cheliabinsk, Russia, has just turned 19 – but regularly gets mistaken for Jenny from the Block singer J Lo, who turned 50 earlier this year.

But the savvy teen has decided to embrace the pair’s similar look and says it even helps her secure modelling work.

With her Latin looks and curvy figure, it’s easy to see the similarities between the pair.


Natalia, who works as a model, said: “It’s not amazing to have people mistake you for a 50 year old when I’m not even 20 yet.

“But it is J Lo, who doesn’t look her age, so I do take it as a compliment.

“The first time someone told me I looked like her, I was only 14 and didn’t really know who she was.

“But when I started doing some modelling work, the make up artists offered to style my hair and make up just like her and I couldn’t believe how alike we looked!

“Now, all the agents and make up artists in my city just call me J Lo. Some of them probably don’t even know my real name.

“Every time I work with someone new, they take a picture to post to their social media to pretend that J Lo visited them.

“It’s like being as famous as the real Jennifer Lopez!

“At first it was a bit overwhelming but now I take it in my stride and actually enjoy it.

“My dream is to meet J.Lo personally – I’d love to know what she thinks of my look.”
