HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Renae Cruz is honored to be playing a triple-X takeoff of Jennifer Lopez, and she wants the movie star to know it.

"She's such a sexy woman, because there's such a slutty side to what she is," she told XBIZ.

Cruz has replaced Jasmine Byrne in X-Play's upcoming production, "J-Ho," a spoof of the life of movie star Jennifer Lopez.

Cruz made her way into the adult biz last November after a life as a military brat. She was born in the Philippines and lived for a year in Brazil. During that time, she learned two important things: Portuguese and the ability to adapt.

"Moving around so much made me learn to understand people better," she said. "I think I come off as a much more mature person that way."

All Media Play President Jeff Mullen told XBIZ that he bumped into Cruz at a dinner party, where the 19-year-old caught his eye. He later brought her in for some photos.

"We did a photo shoot with her, and she just sparkled," he said. "She's absolutely gorgeous — cute, young with a great sexual appetite and fun to be around. Jasmine Byrne would've made a great J-Ho, but we've got a great replacement."

Cruz's previous credits include VCA's "18 and Easy Vol. 9" She'll also appear in the upcoming "Long Dong Black Kong 2."
