For as long as there have been celebrities, the public has been obsessed over famous couples. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck know this all too well, as they’ve spent decades watching their personal and professional lives make headlines. Bennifer’s recent reunion has broken the internet, and now Lopez has seemingly teased her relationship with Affleck in new comments.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were a serious power couple in the early 2000s, with Bennifer being one of the first examples of modern celebrity shipping. The two have since reunited, and Lopez has opened up about their relationship when speaking about her 2002 album This Is Me... Then, which featured a number of songs about her relationship with Affleck. Lopez opened up about this recently, saying:
While songs about exes might be cringeworthy for some recording artists, it looks like Jennifer Lopez doesn’t feel that way about her hit 2002 album. What’s more, she’s seemingly been re-listening to This Is Me... Then, which literally includes a track titled “Dear Ben.” Now I wonder why she might be revisiting this part of her music catalogue?
Jennifer Lopez’s comments about her Ben Affleck-centric album come from her recent appearance on The Ebro Show (opens in new tab). Despite a recent Oscar snub for Hustlers, 51 year-old multihyphenate’s career is still managing to rise. Because in addition to her music and headline-making personal life, Lopez is also a producer who recently made an awesome deal with Netflix.
Later in that same interview, Jennifer Lopez further reflected on This Is Me...Then, ending on a note that is sure to turn the heads of all the Bennifer fans out there. You can read her words for yourself below, although try not to squee in excitement.
Forever, you say? Could this mean that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s reconnection is getting hot and heavy? Clearly listening to her music from that era has been an interesting experience for the singer-actress-dancer-producer. Especially as Bennifer has once again dominated the news cycle.
While Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck haven’t spoken in detail about their reunion, all eyes are certainly on the pair of A-listers. They’ve been photographed together countless times, so it’s not like they’re exactly keeping things a secret. Still, there are generations of fans who want more information about Bennifer 2.0.
Jennifer Lopez recently wrapped her new movie Shotgun Wedding, while moviegoers can’t wait to see Ben Affleck reprise his role as Batman in the Flash movie. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
