Why Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck Are Reportedly Spending So Much Time Together Before Autumn

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez side by side

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been megastars for decades, making headlines with both their professional and personal lives. They recently broke the internet thanks to their very public reunion, two decades after dominating pop culture as Bennifer. Lopez and Affleck have been photographed countless times together, and now we seemingly know why they’ve been spending so much time ahead of the autumn season.

Bennifer 2.0 was born shortly after Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announced the end of their engagement. The timing alone turned heads, but when Ben Affleck was photographed with Lopez the public lost their collective minds. Since then there’s been a ton of paparazzi photos of the pair, both on vacation and at home. And it seems that they’ve been cramming in so much fun before their busy film schedules take Affleck and Lopez to separate locations this fall.

This latest update comes to us from People, with the outlet reportedly having an inside source that’s privy to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s relationship. According to the unnamed individual,

They are spending as much time together as possible before they have separate work projects in the fall. Ben will be filming in Texas and Jennifer in Canada.

Well, there you have it. It seems that two very busy schedules are coming back into play this fall. And as a result, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are traveling and spending as much quality time as they can before departing to their respective film sets.

This latest rumor report would make a great deal of sense, as Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are both multihyphenates who stay extremely busy with their careers. Lopez recently signed a deal with Netflix to produce new content, in addition to her life as a pop star. Ben Affleck keeps busy as a writer-director-actor, so he’s always got his hands on a few different projects.

Since reuniting, the public has been fascinated by Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s new romantic connection. The pair have been photographed many times over the past few months, before finally confirming their coupling on Lopez’s recent birthday. Luckily their history from the early 2000’s likely prepared them for this type of scrutiny.

As previously mentioned, both Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have a number of anticipated projects coming down the line. Lopez recently wrapped production on Shotgun Wedding, as the ink on her deal with Netflix dried. As for Ben Affleck, fans can’t wait to see him back as Batman in the upcoming Flash movie. This is especially true since Affleck made it seem like he had hung up the cowl and cape for good after the disappointing performance of Justice League.

Shotgun Wedding is currently expected to hit theaters on June 29th, 2022, while The Flash will arrive on November 4th, 2022. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
