That was all the way back in the early 2000s. Both of their careers were beginning to hit their respective high notes, and Jennifer even released an album inspired by their relationship. But they were both quite young at the time, and that proved to be a problem for them. It was said back then, that the two were simply in different places and wanted different things out of life.
They split up in 2002, and since then, both have been married and have children with other famous faces. But earlier this year, the two were spotted getting cozy together, and all of the media speculation came right back to haunt them. Despite that, their new romance is official, and "Bennifer" is once again a a real Hollywood couple, much to the excitement of fans all over the world!
Ben Affleck Was Unsure About Jennifer Lopez Romance
But this second attempt at love was not something that Ben Affleck took lightly, and he thought long and hard about going back into such a high-profile relationship, as he explained on an interview with Howard Stern:
“It crossed my mind for sure. My responsibility to my children is the highest responsibility. I don’t want to do anything that is painful or destructive to them if I can help it,” Affleck told Stern.
“My life affects them. Me and their mom (Jennifer Garner) are celebrities. That is hard. That is a cross to bear,” Affleck explained, adding that “horrible lies” were headlined by tabloids during their divorce. “The truth was we took our time, we made the decision, we grew apart,” he said of his divorce. “We had a marriage that didn’t work. We tried because we had kids."
But now it seems that Affleck is ready to put all of these things behind him and start fresh with an old flame. Fans are hoping that this time around, both he and Jennifer Lopez can settle down for good...but you never really know in Hollywood do you?
