Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were caught on camera again having a tense exchange during the red carpet of the Los Angeles premiere of Jennifer’s new movie, The Mother. Apparently, the couple went from serious and tense to showing signs of infatuation.
Upon arriving at the event, Jennifer, 53, was photographed having an intense conversation with Ben, also 53, who looked upset and stressed, according to US media reports. These strange gesticulations in front of the cameras are not new for them. However, once on the red carpet, Jennifer and Ben behaved like two lovebirds and even kissed for photographers.
These images went viral on social media a few months ago during the 2023 Grammy ceremony, when Jennifer seemed to cheer up a tired Ben. The singer managed to make him straighten up and look happier with just a few words, which caught the attention of the event’s followers.
Referring to those viral images, Ben told The Hollywood Reporter in March, “I had fun at the Grammys. I saw Trevor Noah walk up, and I thought, ‘Oh, God.’ They were filming that shot, but I didn’t know that. I walked up to Jennifer and said, ‘When they start filming, I’m going to walk away from you and sit next to Trevor.’ At that point, I felt like I was at ‘your wife’s work event.'”
The couple began dating in the early 2000s and first became engaged in 2002, but their wedding never took place, and they separated in 2004. Both had subsequent marriages and children with other couples (Jennifer with Marc Anthony and Ben with Jennifer Garner), but after several relationships, they decided to give their love a second chance, which has generated a lot of buzz. They rekindled their relationship in 2021, and a year later they celebrated the wedding they never had.
