Jennifer Lopez as Jasmine

It's Up, Up and Away with Jennifer Lopez!

Jennifer Lopez Marc Anthony Aladdin

Jennifer Lopez as Jasmine from "Aladdin." Lopez and then-husband Marc Anthony are seen flying on their magic carpet in this scene from "Aladdin" shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Naturally, one cannot read too much into posed shots in which every gesture and expression is carefully manipulated. However, it is quite a coincidence that Lopez and Anthony look quite serious, even grim, on what should by all rights be a happy shot. After all, there wasn't any crying on the magic carpet in the scenes from the original film! It might not come as too much of a surprise to learn that the happy couple split not too long after this photograph was taken.

All that said, it is a wonderful shot and a nice companion piece to Whoopi Goldberg's turn as the Genie from Aladdin.
