Ben Affleck opened up about his relationship with Jennifer Lopez and the songs she wrote about him. He appeared on an episode of ‘SmartLess’ podcast with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes where he spilled the tea.
“Here’s this incredible actress and this incredible performer. And then we’re sitting in the car, you know, and I’m humming along, like I will, you know, to the radio. And then a professional singer goes ahead and sings along and you kind of feel like, ‘Well that’s embarrassing,’” he noted.
“I do love her music, it’s brilliant and I know all of it,” he added. Affleck also spoke about the songs she wrote about him, including ‘Dear Ben’ from her 2002’s ‘This Is Me… Then’ and ‘Dear Ben Pt. II’ which will be on the soon-to-be-released ‘This Is Me… Now’.
“The songs that have been written about me have been written by the greatest performer in the history of the world, Jennifer Lopez,” he said. “I don’t know if they are exactly about me, as maybe inspired by me because there are some negative things in there. She’s amazing.”
The couple was also seen on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Air’, which Affleck directed. He praised J.Lo for being by his side during the process and added, “I love you. You mean the world to me. You’re fabulous, you’re amazing, you’re wonderful, good, kind, magnificent and I love you.”
