Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s relationship has all the makings of a blockbuster film script. The two stars who were engaged in 2003, eventually parted ways only to famously rekindle their connection almost 20 years later. This time, Affleck and Lopez were in it for the long haul and culminated their whirlwind romance in marriage in 2022.
The couple is also hitting it out of the park in the professional front. Lopez’s film The Mother released to positive responses on Mother’s Day while Affleck’s Amazon Prime original Air which is the first film under his production banner with Matt Damon, has also received widespread critical acclaim. But when it comes to personalities, the Maid in Manhattan actor and the Argo director are as different as chalk and cheese which looks to be posing problems for the couple.
Low-Key Ben Affleck Allegedly Stressed By Jennifer Lopez’s Energy
It is often said that opposites attract and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are perfect examples of the phrase. Their contrasting personalities while having a major role to play in reviving their romance, also looks to have posed some genuine problems for the couple. According to an inside source, Jennifer Lopez survives on drama while Ben Affleck is more the “Netflix and Chill” type of person. This has reportedly led to clashes between the actors who were seen seemingly arguing during the premier of Lopez’s film, The Mother.
“Ben Affleck wants to slow down a little. He needs that, but it’s not really how Jennifer Lopez does things. Ben has a full plate just dealing with the decisions he has to make with his career and his new business venture.When he goes home at night he wants to zone out or talk to his kids on the phone.”
The source went on to compare Jennifer Lopez’s energy to that of a Duracell bunny and stated that the actor was a quintessential diva who thrived in the public eye. Affleck though, was well aware of this fact when he chose to revive his relationship with the Jenny from the Block singer.
“Bennifer” Will Share Screen Space After 20 Years
The ongoing heated discussions about personalities aside, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez will be soon seen working together for the first time in 20 years after their collaboration in Gigli. The couple will star together in Unstoppable, a sports drama that follows the story of Anthony Robles, a wrestler born with one leg who won a national championship at Arizona State University. The film will be produced by Affleck’s production company Artists Equity, which he started with his long-time friend and co-actor, Matt Damon.
The film will mark the directorial debut of Oscar-winning editor William Goldberg, who worked on Affleck’s directorial Argo, as well as films like Zero Dark Thirty. While Affleck and Lopez failed to set the screens on fire with Gigli, their return as co-stars after a long hiatus has given them an opportunity to rectify the damage and prove their chemistry together.
