Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez were two of the most unexpected people to come together. They’d called off their engagement in 2004, but luckily got a second chance. Lopez was mere months away from getting married to Alex Rodriguez. After they called their wedding off, Lopez and A-Rod went their separate ways.
Affleck & Lopez started off really subtly, but slowly their public appearances became numerous. They hung out with each other, went house hunting, and even took their kids out to see a musical in Los Angeles.
The former Batman is finally ready to publicly talk about his re-unification with the pop star. Affleck revealed to The Wall Street Journal that his reunion with J.Lo is “great story” which he would attempt to “write it all down” at some point. He told the outlet:
I can say that it’s definitely beautiful to me. And, you know, one of the things I really value across all facets of my life now is that it was handled in a way that reflected that.
Affleck said that it’s a great story to have come together with Lopez again. He then joked that maybe he’s try to write the whole story. After writing it, he said, he would set in on fire. Affleck then talked about how lucky he is, and said that he has always tried to learn from his failures.
I am very lucky in my life in that I have benefited from second chances, and I am aware that other people don’t even get first chances. I’ve definitely tried to take advantage of that. I haven’t always been successful, but in cases in which I have, they’ve turned out to be the defining aspects of my life.
Bennifer are one of the best couples in the industry currently. Fans rooted for them when they were just coming together. Now that they are together, Ben Affleck wants nothing more than making the most out of his second chance with Jennifer Lopez.
