The Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez romance was popular 20 years ago and is still popular today. After initially breaking up in 2004 due to pressure from the public and paparazzi, the Hollywood couple came back together in what Jennifer Lopez described as a “beautiful” relationship.
At the start of their 2002 relationship, Ben Affleck appeared in Lopez’s music video for her hit song, “Jenny On The Block.” Almost 20 years later, the actor made an appearance in another music video for the actress, albeit in a more subtle way.
Lopez’s music video for the romantic comedy “Marry Me” was just released, and it teased some scenes of the DC actor. In this video, Affleck’s face wasn’t revealed. Still, there were scenes of him with Lopez on the bed, sharing a sweet moment, and parts where she seemed to be in a conversation with someone out of view of the camera.
Ben Affleck In Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Marry Me’ Music Video
The 52 year old just released the music video for her ballad “Marry Me,” and it has one surprising, well not so surprising, guest. The song was from her “Marry Me” romantic comedy that hit theaters last month.
Lopez gave her fans a glimpse into her life with Affleck right in the middle of it. The “Batman” actor made a subtle appearance in the video, showing his hands, and his presence was strongly hinted at, but his face wasn’t shown.
In a part of the video, the two shared a sweet moment in bed, cuddling and laughing. There was also a scene where the couple stretched out their arms to hold hands. Several other scenes showed Lopez interacting with someone out of the camera view, possibly Affleck.
Affleck Was Previously In Lopez’s ‘Jenny On The Block’
Besides his appearance in “Marry Me,” Affleck was in a different music video of the “Wedding Planner” actress. Around the time they first got together in 2002, Lopez released the music video for her hit single “Jenner On The Block,” which featured the 49-year-old in full technicolor.
Unlike his subtle appearance in “Marry Me,” Affleck’s face was visible in this music video from several different angles. In one of their scenes, the couple was on a yacht with Lopez clad in a pink bikini. The “Daredevil” actor was lying beside her with his hand on her derrière.
The duo was in a similar position recently with the singer in identical swimwear, and fans asserted that they were recreating the boat scene from the 2002 music video. Lopez ended up denying it, claiming it was just a coincidence.
Affleck Made A Personalized Video For Lopez’s Valentine’s Day Present
Lopez previously disclosed that Affleck made a personalized music video for her “On My Way” hit as an early Valentine’s Day gift. The video lasted almost four minutes long and showed several pictures and videos of the two when they first started dating in 2002.
The shots from that period were woven into the actual “On My Way” music video. When talking about it in her “On The JLo newsletter,” the “Monster in Law” actress revealed that the video “melted [her] heart.”
The singer wrote, “Watching it made me think about the journey of true love, its unexpected twists and turns and that when it’s real, it actually can last forever. This seriously melted my heart.” Lopez also added that the gift was “very special and personal” to her, and she would have normally shared it with only her “inner circle.”
Lopez And Affleck Dated In 2002 Before Calling It Quits
Lopez and Affleck originally met on the set of “Gigli,” a movie they both starred in. At that time, Lopez was still married to Cris Judd, and the duo were reportedly just friends. Lopez separated from her husband in July 2002 and started going out with Affleck publicly that summer.
The two were together till 2004 and even got engaged. Affleck and Lopez ended up moving their wedding date due to continued scrutiny from the paparazzi and the public. The duo announced their separation that year and moved on with different people.
Now, almost 18 years after their previous relationship, the “Bennifer” couple have come back together, and according to Lopez, things are better than ever. They’re apparently older, wiser, and a lot more prepared to handle whatever the future has in store for them.
