Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Appreciation #1: The original Bennifer are blissfully back together

B E N & J E N Appreciation

"We didn't try to have a public relationship. We just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids.
It was just a lot of pressure... I think different time, different thing,
who knows what could've happened, but there was a genuine love there
."

{J-Lo on their 2002-2004 romance}

- LOVE in the MOVIES -

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in Gigli [2003]


Ben with Kate Beckinsale in Pearl Harbor [2001]


Jen with Ralph Fiennes in Maid in Manhattan [2002]


- A NEW Beginning -

Ben and Jennifer are serious about their rekindled romance.
A Hollywood insider tells PEOPLE in this week's issue that
the pair are "madly in love" and "the loves of each other's lives."

{A 'Second Chance' at Love - Bennifer in People, 2021}

I don't mind them as a couple. I haven't actually seen them together much. Ben Affleck I'm a big fan of certainly & her music as well. I have seen Jennifer Lopez act in a few films. She did well enough. I have not seen ''Gigli'' that they were in together.

Great to see you here!

Seeing them together makes me nostalgic for my teen years . They seem to be in a great place personally now, so I only opened the thread after knowing it is a resumption of a serious relationship.

Plus, I realized there isn't a place to discuss Ben's movies, so this can be that place.

He was such a big name in the 90s.

I never saw GIGLI either
The reviews really put me off.

We've discussed him in the DC Extended Universe forum, since he played ''Batman/Bruce Wayne''. I think that it was the decade after the 1990's where Ben Affleck's celebrity status grew a ton.

It began with Good Will Hunting and then he went into action epics, such as Armageddon... Which I surprisingly liked.

The scene where Bruce Willis makes Ben's character realize he's gonna sacrifice himself and Ben cries is very emotional.

They attended the MET Gala last night, met up inside and posed for pics with essential masks (and shared a kiss) 10 pics of Ben/Jen MET Gala PDA here

After re-watching J-Lo's first music video If You Had My Love, I've come to the conclusion that:

Love Don't Cost A Thing is still my favorite song of hers and the location is gorgeous
BUT
If You Had My Love has the best dressed J-Lo, best transitions and story telling -- it really welcomes the era of Internet chat rooms and web cams. Ahead of its time.


VOGUE: 19 Years Later, Jennifer Lopez’s “If You Had My Love” Music Video is Still a Fashion Classic

They are! I always preferred her early songs

And the one with the Spanish dancing, Ain't It Funny (The original, not the remix)

Cute article with sources explaining how they support each other, how happy they are and want their relationship to really work out this time around ~

The cast and crew of Pearl Harbor [2001] at the premiere (say what you will about the film overall, but the cast were pretty great) -

I'd recommend it for sure Ben has the lead role and I think he was very underrated.

Unfortunately its weak spot is the love triangle which I think was deliberately exaggerated into soap opera territory perhaps because they thought "well, TITANIC got famous by selling a fictional romance"

They should have kept it as a romance between two of the characters because once it becomes a triangle, it becomes a little excruciating and almost overshadows the factual War details.

I do like the scenes where Ben's character helps the British. Won't spoil it for you though.
