Lopez’s bizarre film titled This Is Me…Now is one component of a three-part, $20 million self-financed multimedia project that showcases her never-ending love for the Air actor. J.Lo was so much into the drama that she decided to invest a hefty amount. However, Jane Fonda shared her concerns as she said in the documentary,

“I want you to know that I don’t entirely know why, but I feel invested in you and Ben, and I really want this to work. However, this is my concern. Like, it feels too much like you’re trying to prove something instead of just living it. You know, every other photograph is the two of you kissing and the two of you hugging.”  

However, the Hustlers actress believed that her love for Ben Affleck was “sacred and special,” and the documentary was not enough to express her love. She decided to invest $20 million when she called her longtime producing partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas in the dead of the night to announce the musical film.

“I’m in New York,” Goldsmith-Thomas tells me, “and she’s saying, ‘I think I’m going to finance this myself.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ I don’t even know what it is. What are you doing?’ I was worried. ‘Why are you sharing your story? It’s too personal. Stop it.’ It made me uncomfortable for her.”  

Though Jennifer Lopez wanted to showcase her love for Affleck to the world in the bizarre musical film, it got critically bombed by critics and viewers as they were not big fans of her idea and shot down the film.

Speaking with In Touch Weekly magazine, an insider came forward to share the relationship between the couple. The insider stated that though the couple showcases that they are perfect, there are a number of things that are wrong with them. The insider said, 

“This is asking for trouble. Jen says she and Ben have PTSD from all the scrutiny for the first time around, and then in the next breath she’s promoting this movie about their relationship. She’s so caught up in this romance fantasy, no one can tell her to put the brakes on, not even Ben.”

The insider further continued,

“All the social media posts and constant PDA, it’s already over the top. Now using her marriage and private moments to promote her album is serving her relationship up on a platter for the public to devour again. Everyone’s predicting it will blow up in her face.”

However the insider made a fair point, as the couple has been ruining their intimate moments, and if things continue like that Hollywood might witness another divorce case.
