Ben Affleck Opens Up About Life with Jennifer Lopez and How ‘Chaotic’ it Feels in Her Presence

Ben Affleck recently opened up about the “chaotic” experience of being married to multihyphenate star Jennifer Lopez. Amid rumors of their imminent divorce, Affleck shed light on their life together and the frenzy that often accompanies their public appearances.

During an appearance on Kevin Hart’s interview show on Peacock, Affleck shared candid insights into the challenges and joys of blending their families and dealing with intense public attention.

Affleck described a particularly chaotic scene when he and Lopez, along with their blended brood, stepped out in Times Square. The family was mobbed by fans and paparazzi, creating a wild and overwhelming atmosphere. Affleck’s recounting of the event highlighted the stark contrast between his and Lopez’s levels of fame.

“People are like, ‘Hey, I like your movie,’ and then they’re like ‘AAAHHHH! J-LO!’ It’s amazing, you know what I mean?” Affleck said. He emphasized how Lopez’s presence generates a much more intense reaction from the public, demonstrating her immense popularity and the love people have for her.

Recalling the Times Square experience, Affleck shared, “We get out of the car, we were going to a play, and I was like, ‘F— it, babe, we’re going to be late, we gotta walk a block and a half.’ [Lopez] was like, ‘Alright,’ she didn’t say s—.

We get out with her, all the kids, through Times Square, and the s— was like f——’ bananas.” The actor described how a woman, smoking weed and dressed in a full purple skintight suit, began running backwards while filming and shouting “J-LO!!” This sparked a wave of excitement among the tourists, who quickly joined in.

Affleck’s children have also been adjusting to the unique dynamics of their blended family. Affleck shared a humorous yet poignant moment involving his daughter, who came up with a potential title for her autobiography: “J-Lo Was My Stepmother.”

“My daughter is always throwing out titles to her autobiography,” Affleck said, referencing one of his two daughters with ex-wife Jennifer Garner. He explained how this particular idea came about during the chaotic Times Square incident.

“Then we’ve got our five kids, it’s me and Jen and what feels like hundreds of people, and they’re all screaming. And my daughter just turns to me and goes, ‘J-Lo Was My Stepmother,’” Affleck said. “And I was like, alright that’s a good title.”

Despite the chaos, Affleck acknowledged Lopez’s ability to remain composed and unfazed by the attention. This calm demeanor contrasts sharply with the intense reactions they encounter, making their public outings both challenging and memorable.
