Ben Affleck can say nothing but good things about ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez. In fact, his latest quotes about the superstar have some fans hoping for Bennifer 2.0.
Affleck is one of the many stars he has spoken to With style about why it has been a dominant force in the entertainment industry for decades. While the actor pointed out Lopez’s work ethic, he also had something funny to say about her brilliance at J.Lo.
“Where do you keep the fountain of youth?” The 48-year-old Oscar winner stood up. “Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and look like I’m in your 40s … at best?”
Lopez responded to that remark by telling the magazine, “Ben is funny! He still looks pretty good.”
The founder of JLo Beauty, who said he was “in the best shape of my life” at 51, has been dating Affleck for two years. They ended their engagement in 2004. Affleck had previously compared their relationship with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, given the public’s and media’s obsession with their romance. It is clear that there is no bad blood between the couple and that Lopez’s work ethic has made a lasting impression on Affleck.
“I thought I had a good work ethic, but I was completely humble and blown away by what she was committed to doing every day, the seriousness in which she took her job, the quiet and dedicated way in which she accomplished goals, and then how she will return and redouble her efforts, “he said With style. “To this day, she remains the most hard-working person I have ever encountered in this business. She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success and I am so happy for her that it seems, finally, for to receive the recognition she deserves. “
Affleck was not the only famous Lopez ex who had good things to say about the superstar. Mark Anthony also talks about her incomparable work ethic.
“The thing about Jennifer is her ability to see and understand things before they happen. Before she even came up with an idea, she visualized it a thousand times,” Anthony said of his ex-wife. “And if someone says it may not be the best idea, they’ll say, ‘You just don’t see it yet.’ Nine times out of 10, she will stab him. “
Anthony continued, “She’s the first in the room and the last to leave. The hardest worker I’ve ever met. When we were together, it was just the opposite for me. That’s changed since then. I’ve learned so much from her. She’s the original. ! “
Lopez is still engaged to Alex Rodriguez (although he was not in the article), so Affleck’s meeting seems to be off the table.
The May 2021 edition of With style is available at booths on Amazon and for digital download on April 16.
