Latina diva Jennifer Lopez missed out on landing a dream role opposite TOM CRUISE in JERRY MAGUIRE - because her agents felt the part was beneath her.

Renee Zellweger is delighted Lopez turned down the movie because it "propelled" her into the spotlight enabling her to star in films like BRIDGET JONES' DIARY and Chicago.

J.LO reveals she snubbed the role because her agents said the part "is not for you."
