Jennifer Lopez has reached an incredible milestone that most of us would only ever dream of over the weekend – and she made sure that her fans were part of the celebration too. On Instagram, the Hollywood star reached a staggering 100 million followers, and as a treat she held a competition to give one lucky person the chance to go to the premiere of Hustlers at the Toronto Film Festival. What's more, JLo even gave away her mobile number to her fans so that they could text her to enter themselves in the contest. She wrote: "100 MILLION FOLLOWERS?!?! WOW!!!! Humbled and grateful for all of your continued love and support. You guys mean everything to me so TOMORROW I am inviting ONE of you (and a guest) to the PREMIERE of @hustlersmovie in Toronto!"
