Ben Affleck opened up about people who were very mean about Jennifer Lopez when they dated — sexist, racist. Ugly things were written about her in ways that if you wrote it now, you would literally be fired for saying those things you said.
Ben Affleck, 48, continued that now it’s like she’s lionized and respected for the work she did, where she came from, what she accomplished, as the way it should be. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, 51, dated in 2002 after she finalized her divorce from actor Cris Judd. The duo got engaged that November, but they broke things off in January 2004.
The Oscar winner continued that he would say you have a better shot — coming from the Bronx — of ending up as like Justice Sonia Sotomayor on the Supreme Court than you do of having Jennifer Lopez’s career and being who she is at 50 years old today.
The following year, the Gone Girl actor went on to marry Jennifer Garner and they split 10 years later. In March 2020, he started dating Ana de Armas. The “Ain’t Your Mama” songstress, for her part, was married to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014 before finding The One in fiancé Alex Rodriguez.
