During his appearance on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons, Ben Affleck once again pointed fingers at Jennifer Lopez for his career’s downfall a decade ago. Despite this, Lopez appeared unfazed as she attended Beautiful: The Carole King musical in New York City over the weekend. The 46-year-old actress looked stunning in a topknot and dark red lipstick, exuding a glowing aura.
Looking fabulous as ever, Jennifer Lopez was spotted at the Carole King musical in New York City over the weekend. The singer and actress wore a white low-cut top paired with blue fitted jeans, showing off her sun-kissed skin. Adding to her ensemble, she donned a fringed beige suede jacket that gave off a Country & Western vibe, along with blue platform heels. Completing the look, JLo wore cool tinted aviators and large diamond stud earrings.
Observation: Lopez was sporting a white shirt with a plunging neckline that elegantly displayed her sun-kissed decolletage. She paired it with a well-fitted pair of blue jeans. The overall look had a Country & Western vibe, accentuated by the fringed beige jacket made of suede and blue platform heels.
The actress from Shades of Blue looked radiant with her hair in a topknot and sporting dark red lipstick while taking backstage photos. Despite having a busy week shooting for her NBC series in Manhattan, she managed to look refreshed and stunning. It remains unknown whether she went to the music event alone or with Casper Smart. While being interviewed on an HBO show, Ben mentioned that his “wife” Jennifer Garner was instrumental in reviving his career by directing successful movies like The Town and Argo after his breakup with Lopez. Some speculate that Ben’s choice of words hints at a possible reconciliation with Jennifer.
Ben Affleck expressed deep emotions during his appearance on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons this week, as he talked about how Jennifer Lopez was responsible for his career low.
During the era when he was photographed alongside J.Lo in 2003, the actor stated that he felt like he was being laughed at by his colleagues and the general public. This phase of his career was a total eclipse for him.
In May, Ben and Garner appeared to have a strong bond as they took a family trip to Paris with their three children. Witnesses even spotted the couple sharing a romantic moment in the hotel bar. News reports suggest that their divorce will be finalized sometime this summer. Despite rumors of a reconciliation, Jennifer denies rekindling their relationship. Ben spoke openly about how Jennifer supported him during his career struggles, particularly during his past relationship with Jennifer Lopez. He revealed that their highly publicized romance had a negative impact on his career and self-esteem. Despite being viewed as a “joke” by some at the time, Ben and J.Lo were considered a glamorous power couple. However, their two-year engagement ended in 2004, leaving Ben feeling miserable and unsure of himself.
Ben shared with Simmons that Garner played a crucial role in his success by offering him support and guidance. He mentioned that his wife was also an integral part of his journey as she helped him balance his work and family life.
Ben Affleck shared about a difficult time in his life when he was the subject of mocking in a comedy act by Robert Wurl. The 43-year-old actor revealed that he saw the act on a United Airlines flight and felt like it was one of his lowest points. At the time, Affleck believed that he wasn’t cool or talented, which was reinforced by his break-up with Jennifer Lopez and a string of box office bombs such as Gigli and Jersey Girl. Despite these setbacks, Affleck persevered through the “Bennifer” curse, until Wurl’s comedy act made him feel like a human dartboard.
Ben expressed that he has made a firm decision to put in more effort than anyone else. He recounted an incident involving a comic from New Jersey who singled him out for ridicule, causing Ben to feel like the lowest of the low. He even saw the comedian’s routine about him while on a United Airlines flight, which made him realize that it couldn’t get any worse than this. This experience inspired Ben to pursue directing, a field reserved for those who are respected. To achieve success in this new venture, Ben adopted the mantra of working harder than anyone else.
The relationship between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck looked promising in 2002, but it turned out that they were not meant to be. Ben’s co-star in Daredevil, Jennifer Garner, entered his life and things took a turn for the better. Despite their split in 2015, Ben and Jennifer maintain a cordial relationship for the sake of their three children – Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. Ben has had success with films like The Town and Argo, which he credits to Jennifer. He will reprise his role as Batman in the upcoming film Justice League, set to release in 2017, with a sequel planned for 2019. Currently, Ben is working on reshoots for Live By Night in Pasadena, California. Although Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice received mixed reviews, it brought in $871 million worldwide.
Ben passionately supported Tom Brady in the midst of the ‘Deflategate’ controversy during his interview on Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons, using colorful language to express his defense.
Ben credited his wife, Jennifer (seen in this 2014 photo with him), for playing a pivotal role in reviving his professional life.
