Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were co-stars in the 2001 movie “Gigli,” with Affleck playing the role of a mobster called Larry Gigli, and Lopez portraying a gangster named Ricky. Despite the critically panned film, their characters inevitably fell in love and ended up together by the end of the movie. At the time, Lopez was married to Cris Judd, her second husband, whom she met while shooting a music video for “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” In an interview with Vanity Fair in March 2003, Affleck denied rumors that he and Lopez acted romantically while she was still married. He said that they became really good friends at first and got to know each other without any pressure or expectations. Affleck added that he felt capable of loving somebody in a way where their happiness mattered more than his own desires. In April 2002, Affleck placed ads in Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, expressing his admiration for working with Lopez on “Gigli.”

The couple, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, recently appeared on an hour-long “Dateline” NBC special hosted by Pat O’Brien of “Access Hollywood”, where they shared their love story. They revealed that they barely knew each other before working together on the film “Gigli”. “We met at a couple of the parties,” said Lopez. “You know, we barely paid any attention to each other at all.” However, they became “really good friends” during the filming of “Gigli”. Lopez added that they had good chemistry since they both enjoyed improvisation and Affleck was “the best person to improv in the whole entire business, he’s so funny”. She also disclosed that there wasn’t a specific moment when they fell in love, but rather they became friends first.

In addition, Lopez stated that she would keep her surname professionally but use Affleck’s last name technically. Meanwhile, Affleck, who is from Boston and a Red Sox fan, expressed his opposition to his family supporting the New York Yankees, which originated in Lopez’s hometown. He said, “The Mets is fine. I could put up with the Mets. The Mets I could live with. Pinstripes can’t be in the house.” Unfortunately, their film “Gigli” was released on August 1, 2003, and was a box office failure.


Jennifer Lopez reflected on the challenging time she experienced during the “Gigli” era and her high-profile relationship with Ben Affleck. The poorly received film coincided with the emergence of tabloid press, causing her to become a frequent subject of negative headlines. Lopez admits that she lost her sense of self and questioned her place in the entertainment industry. The postponement of her wedding to Affleck due to public scrutiny added to her difficulties. Despite the hardships, Lopez expresses no regret and would do it all over again, including the relationship.
