- In the early 2000s, few celebrity couples were as ubiquitous as “Bennifer.” The nickname, of course, refers to the romance between stars Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.
Although the couple split in early 2004, Affleck recently opened up about how Lopez “completely humiliated” him during their relationship. It should be noted that Affleck and Lopez were already major pop culture icons in the early 2000s.
The actor had won an Academy Award for co-writing Good Will Hunting in the late 1990s. In fact, he built on that success in a number of major movie roles in the years that followed.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez balanced her music career with films like Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner. So the media were captivated by the super couple, whom they later dubbed “Bennifer.”
Affleck and López even got engaged in November 2002. And just one day before their scheduled wedding, the couple postponed their nuptials in September 2003. The couple ended their relationship in 2004.
Ben Affleck admits he was ‘humiliated’ by Jennifer Lopez
The Hustlers star is featured on the cover of the May 2021 issue of InStyle magazine. And in the cover story, Ben Affleck reveals how his ex-fiancée completely humiliated him during their relationship.
“I thought she had a good work ethic, but I was completely humbled and humbled by how hard-working and committed she was to the job. She’s just the best at what she does, ”Affleck said.
“She remains, to this day, the hardest working person I have come across in this business. She has worked very hard for her success, and I am so happy for her that she seems to finally be getting the credit she deserves, “he added.
Since their breakup, Affleck has become the acclaimed director of movies like Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and Argo. Perhaps her drive to succeed was inspired in part by how much she saw Lopez work when they were together.
