Jennifer Lopez was asked about her ex, Ben Affleck, while visiting with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. According to Us Weekly, Cohen didn’t hold back when asking the brunette beauty about her old flame… and his man parts. JLo was asked what she thought of Ben’s full frontal nudity in Gone Girl, and Jen’s response was pretty funny.
“Nothing I haven’t seen before,” Jen said laughing.
She then got a bit more serious about her ex.
“It was probably my first big heartbreak. [He was] one of my best friends who I’d known for years, who I actually love and did have chemistry with,” she said candidly.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck (better known as Bennifer) dated from 2002 to 2004. Ben started dating his now-wife, Jennifer Garner, just months after his split from Lopez, and the two were married in 2005. They now have three children together. Meanwhile, JLo moved on to Marc Anthony, whom she sort of always had an on/off thing with. She and Anthony married soon after Jen’s split from Ben and stayed together for nearly 10 years. The two split in 2014 and are parents to twins Max and Emme.
According to E! News, there was one part of Jen’s relationship with Ben that she didn’t like, and that was the film Giglithat the two made together in 2003. She actually describes that time of her life as “the worst.”
“I think the worst, probably lowest point was the whole ‘Gigli’ era. It was pretty tough. It was a very badly reviewed film. I was in a high-profile relationship at the time that fell apart in a really bad way, and so the kind of mix of those two things and the tabloid press had just come into existence at the time, so I was like a poster child for that moment. I was in the tabloids every other week about how my life was falling apart. It was a tough time.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lopez has done a lot of promotion for her new film The Boy Next Door, and she has been very open and honest in every interview. She has spoken out about her dating life, and said that she’s single at the moment and that it’s “great.”
“I’m single right now. I think being on my own has been really great for me. There was a time where I was just like ‘Ehhh, I’m just not going to deal with anybody, I just want to be on my own.’ Now I’m getting back into the mix. For right now, I just have no announcements to make,” she said recently.
