Quick pick up:
- 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 broke up in early 2004, Affleck recently opened up about how Lopez had “completely humiliated” him during their relationship. It should be noted that Affleck and Lopez were already major icons of pop culture in the early 2000s.
The actor had won an Oscar for co-writing Good Will Hunting in the late 1990s. In fact, he built on that success in a number of major film roles in the years that followed.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez balanced her music career with films like Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner. The media were therefore captivated by the super couple, whom they later dubbed “Bennifer”.
Affleck and López even got engaged in November 2002. And just a day before their planned wedding, the couple postponed their nuptials to September 2003. The couple ended their relationship in 2004.
Ben Affleck admits he was ‘humiliated’ by Jennifer Lopez
The Hustlers star is 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 amazed by the way she worked and engaged in this work. She’s just the best at what she does, ”Affleck said.
“She remains, to this day, the most hardworking person I have met in this field. She’s worked really hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she finally seems to be getting the credit she deserves, ”he added.
Since their split, Affleck has gone on to become the acclaimed director of films 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.
