19 Years in the Making, Ben Affleck’s and Jennifer Lopez’s Unfinished Love Story

When certain love stories come to an end, they may break our hearts as if we were a part of the couple. That’s exactly what happened when Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, popularly known as Bennifer, split up just before their wedding. The couple’s brief romance, which lasted from 2002 to 2003, was unrivaled — no celebrity pair sparked as much excitement as they did. J. Lo once called Ben “her first big heartbreak,” and considering their long history, it’s no surprise they got back together after all these years.

Their career brought them closer.

They are both accomplished people in their lives, with extensive careers behind them. Jennifer Lynn Lopez, widely known as J. Lo, is a multi-talented artist. She is a dancer, singer, and actress. Since she was a youngster, she dreamed about being a celebrity. We all know her for her biggest hits, like Let’s Get Loud and On The Floor, but the Latina actress has also acted in several well-known films, like Selena and Blood and Wine.

Ben Affleck has been in the public spotlight since he was a child, beginning with a commercial. The American actor is best known for his roles in blockbuster films, including Argo, Gone Baby Gone, and the Academy Award-winning Good Will Hunting, which he co-directed with his close friend Matt Damon.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met on the set of the film “Gigli” in December 2001, and despite the film’s box office failure, their love blossomed quickly. Jennifer was still married to her second husband at the time, dancer Cris Judd, but she divorced him shortly after meeting Ben Affleck.

This was later declared during an interview that “at first because she was married, there was no thought of a romantic relationship”, but then they “became really good friends in a way that was very comfortable.” That summer, she and Affleck made their romance public.
