During his appearance on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons, Ben Affleck once again pointed fingers at Jennifer Lopez for his career slump a decade ago. However, on Saturday night, the stunning 46-year-old actress, who stars in Shades Of Blue, looked unfazed as she attended the musical Beautiful: The Carole King in New York City. She looked radiant with her hair in a topknot and wearing dark red lipstick. Watch the video below for more details.
Looking fabulous as always, Jennifer Lopez made a stunning appearance at the Carole King musical in New York City over the weekend. She was dressed to impress, donning a low-cut white shirt that revealed her beautifully tanned neckline and paired it with some fitted blue jeans.
To complete her chic ensemble, J.Lo wore a fringed beige suede jacket that added a hint of Country & Western flair to her look, along with blue platform heels that gave her some extra height. She accessorized with tinted aviator sunglasses and gorgeous diamond stud earrings, adding a cool and sophisticated touch.
Observing her attire, Lopez sported a white shirt with a deep neckline, flaunting her beautifully tanned chest area, paired with snug blue jeans. To add a Country & Western touch, she donned a suede fringed beige jacket along with blue platform heels.
The actress from Shades Of Blue was seen backstage looking stunning with a topknot and dark red lipstick, radiating after a week of filming in Manhattan for her NBC hit show. It is unclear if she went to the musical alone or accompanied by her partner, Casper Smart. During his appearance on HBO, Ben mentioned how his “wife” Jennifer Garner helped revive his career by directing movies such as The Town and Argo, following a rough patch post-divorce from Lopez. This choice of words by Ben could potentially spark rumors of a possible reconciliation between him and Jennifer.
Emotions are intense: During an appearance on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons, Ben Affleck pointed fingers at Lopez for his career slump.
During the time he starred alongside Jennifer Lopez in films, the actor admitted that he was not taken seriously by his colleagues and the general public, leading him to be seen as a comical figure.
In May, Ben and Garner were spotted enjoying a family vacation with their three children in Paris. The couple was seen sharing a kiss in the hotel bar, according to an eyewitness of DailyMail.com. However, their divorce is expected to be finalized this summer as reported by People.com. Jennifer seems unaffected by the situation and denies rumors of reconciliation with Ben, even finding it amusing when asked. In a recent interview, Ben expressed his gratitude towards Jennifer for her support during his career lows. He admitted that his relationship with Jennifer Lopez in the early 2000s had a negative impact on his career and self-esteem, making him feel “uncool” and “untalented”. Despite being the golden couple at that time, their engagement ended in 2004 after two years together, leaving Ben feeling miserable.
Ben shared with Simmons that Garner played a significant role in his success by elevating him to where he deserved to be. He acknowledged his wife’s vital contribution in helping him balance his family life while focusing on his endeavors.
The 43-year-old actor shared his struggles during his lowest point in his career, when comedian Robert Wuhl ridiculed him in his comedy act. Ben Affleck revealed that he saw the whole bit on United Airlines and thought that it couldn’t get much worse than that. He also mentioned that he was considered not cool and not talented, and was at the lowest rung of both in the public consciousness at that time. Affleck’s breakup with Jennifer Lopez and his consecutive box office bombs in Gigli and Jersey Girl didn’t help his situation either. The curse of ‘Bennifer’ followed him for a while, but Wuhl’s mockery of him in his comedy act shown on United Airlines flights made him feel like a human dartboard.
Ben shared that he had made a decision to put in extra effort and surpass the hard work of others. He recounted an experience where a comedian chose him as the target of his jokes, causing Ben to feel humiliated after witnessing the performance on a flight. This incident motivated him to take up directing, a field he believed was for individuals who were taken seriously. From then on, Ben’s focus became to outwork everyone else and do whatever it takes to succeed.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were once considered a power couple, but their relationship was short-lived. In the early stages of their romance, they looked glamorous during a 2002 outing. However, fate had other plans for Ben when he met his Daredevil co-star Jennifer Garner. With her, he experienced a resurgence in his career, with movies like The Town and Argo garnering critical and box office success. The couple tied the knot in 2005 and have three children together. Although they separated in June of last year, they maintain an amicable relationship for the sake of their family. Despite mixed reviews, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice was a financial hit, earning $871 million worldwide to date. Ben is set to reprise his role as Batman in the upcoming Justice League movie, scheduled for release in 2017, with a sequel planned for 2019. Currently, he is filming reshoots for the Prohibition-era crime drama Live By Night in Pasadena, California.
In an interview on Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons, Ben passionately defended Tom Brady in the midst of the ‘Deflategate’ controversy. Despite his use of colorful language, Ben made it clear that he believed Tom was innocent.
Ben credited Jennifer, his ‘spouse’ (as seen in this 2014 photo together), for being instrumental in revitalizing his profession.
