Does anyone else have chills? We all know how creepy the reunion of Gone Girl went, so it’s wild to see it compared to Bennifer 2.0. But the internet is going to internet, so these types of memes are sure to keep coming as the couple spends more time together.

The above image comes to us from Twitter, with the user Matt Sullivan poking fun at the coverage surrounding Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck getting back together. The two are gracing countless magazine covers, and one outlet’s headline just happened to be identical to one used at the end of Gone Girl.

Of course, the circumstances between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are far less grim than the one in Gone Girl. In the film, Nick and Amy Dunne (played by Affleck and Rosamund Pike respectively) reunite after a truly unsettling turn of events-- including Amy framing her husband for her own murder. So seeing the magazine posters side by side to the ones happening IRL about Bennifer is definitely a weird experience. The caption is a one two punch of jokes as well, adding to the humor of the overall meme.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been consistently making headlines for months now. The world turned upside down when it was revealed that the viral couple had reunited, especially so soon after Lopez’s engagement with Alex Rodriguez broke off. And after being photographed together by paparazzi in various locations, the two finally posted photos together online for JLo’s recent birthday.

Bennifer took the world by storm when they were first dating in the early 2000’s. In what is perhaps the first example of shipping a couple, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck made movies and headlines with each other. JLo’s music also highlighted this relationship, with a song from her album even titled “Dear Ben.”

Both A-listers have a ton going for them professionally. Jennifer Lopez recently wrapped Shotgun Wedding, and has a deal with Netflix. As for Ben Affleck, fans can’t wait to see him suit back up as Batman in the Flash movie. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
