Jennifer Lopez opens up about her relationship with boyfriend Ben Affleck. The couple reunited 17 years after they broke off their engagement. Now J. Lo is back on horseback: she founded her own brand of cosmetics, writes new songs and starred in films. Right now, the comedy “The First Man You Meet” is coming out on the screens, in which she played a major role.
In the film, Jennifer plays almost herself – a pop star who breaks up with her musician fiancé after learning about his betrayal. The heroine Lopez begins to have an affair with the first guy she meets – his role went to Owen Wilson. The singer gave a long interview to People magazine, in which she spoke not only about the film, but also about her romance with Affleck.
– I feel so happy next to him. This is such a beautiful love story, and so beautiful that she got a second chance, admitted J. Lo.
The singer says that when she and Ben got back together, they were a little scared. They did not want to flaunt their feelings, given the “all this circus” that was going on around them 17 years ago. Since then, a lot of time has passed, both of them have become more cautious.
We are so happy that we don’t want to play those games again. Now we are older, we are smarter, we have more experience, we are at a different stage in life, we now have children, and we must take all this into account, says 52-year-old Lopez.
According to the artist, 49-year-old Affleck is a caring and delicate boyfriend. Jennifer is proud that he has done a great job on himself and changed for the better (apparently, Jen alludes to Affleck’s alcoholism and gambling). The singer admits that she does not make any special plans for the future and simply enjoys what she has now.
– I just want my future to be filled with love and happiness, with my children and my partner. I think that everyone wants to be happy, with someone to travel with and grow old, and now I feel very good, says the star.
The news of the reunion of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck has become a holiday for all fans of the couple. Former lovers announced that they are back together in the summer of 2021. According to rumors, Lopez and Affleck began to actively communicate last spring, even when Jennifer was dating baseball player Alex Rodriguez. Affleck then just broke up with her beloved actress Ana de Armas. According to insiders, the initiative to revive the relationship belongs to Ben.
For the first time, their romance flared up in July 2002 during the filming of the comedy Gigli. And already in November, Ben made a marriage proposal to Jennifer. Fans were literally thrilled by their couple, and the tabloids nicknamed the actors “Bennifer”. But their wedding never took place. In January 2004, Lopez and Affleck confirmed the breakup rumors. Among the reasons for the breakup, they later called too tight work schedules and too close attention from the media and fans.
