Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck can spend more time together these days, but it hasn’t always been sun and daffodils for the former couple.
The Hollywood burdens of 2002-2004 and even got engaged early in the relationship.
At the time, the two were a tabloid sensation, and it was almost impossible to miss the slightest story.
Interest in their relationship makes sense, as the two were two of Hollywood’s biggest stars at the time, but interest in the couple quickly waned when the public found it difficult to see them everywhere.

Perhaps more famous, however, is the appearance of Affleck in the music video “Jenny from the block” in 2002.
The actor’s appearances were spread throughout the four-minute video, but the video was filled with images of hugs, kisses and even sensual touches, such as a “Good Will Hunting” star rubbing lotion on the singer’s bikini-clad back.
Although it seems that they were having fun at the time, Affleck is not so fond of memory.

“If I’m sorry, that was it [‘Jenny from the Block’] a music video, “he said in 2008, according to the Daily Record.” But that happened years ago. I kept going. “
The “regret” comes from the fact that the couple quickly became publicly hated for their frequent public displays of affection, although Affleck did not hide anything against his ex-fiancée.
“Does that not only make me look like an irritable fool, but it certainly qualifies as non-gentile?” he added. “For the record, did it hurt my career? No.”
It certainly didn’t hurt his career, as he went on to win his second Oscar in 2013 for producing Argo. In recent years, he has also played Batman in a number of high-profile films and won rave reviews for his performance in last year’s “The Way Back.”
