  • Ben Affleck is proud of Jennifer Lopez's success 

Ben Affleck has been talking about some of the women that he has fallen in love with during a recent interview.

After saying that his divorce from Jennifer Garner was his biggest regret, the “Batman v Superman” star surprisingly called his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, the real deal.

Affleck also told The New York Times that he’s still in contact with Lopez and said that he has a lot of respect for her. Affleck and Lopez dated for two years before they got engaged in 2004. However, they decided to call their engagement off due to the media’s intrusion into their private lives.

Garner’s ex-husband couldn’t also contain his excitement over the fact that Lopez had her biggest hit movie at the age of 50. Alex Rodriguez’s fiancée starred in the hit film “Hustlers” last year.

Years after their split, Lopez opened up about her relationship with Affleck and said that it was never their goal to have a public relationship.

“We just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids and it was like, ‘Oh, my God,’ It was just a lot of pressure,” Lopez told Extra.

During the same interview, Lopez also dropped a shocking revelation about her relationship with Affleck when she seemingly suggested that she fell out of love for him.

Lopez admitted that when she first met Affleck, she felt like he was the one for her.

“Okay, this is it. But sometimes I feel like what you think people are and how you see them when you love them is different than what they reveal later,” she said.

A year after Affleck and Lopez called off their engagement, the “Good Will Hunting” star started dating Garner. The two tied the knot shortly after, and they were blessed with three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.

Unfortunately, Affleck and Garner’s relationship ended in divorce. They announced their separation in 2015, but they are still friends today.
