She Used To Joke That Her Success Is Linked With Her Pomeranian Dogs

Back in 2020, during an interview, Jennifer echoed loud that her success and awards are all because of her Pomeranian dogs. She mentioned that:

I got a dog and named it Oscar, and then I won my Oscar. And then I got a dog and named it Grammy, and then I won my Grammy. So I think I should get some dogs and name them Emmy and Tony – and it’ll give me good luck, and I’ll win. [They’re] like my good luck charms.
