Ben Affleck Talks About Dating Jennifer Lopez During 'Gigli' Days

Ben Affleck was asked about his widely publicized movie, 2003′s Gigli, which was considered a flop by critics, and his relationship with Jennifer Lopez at the time.

“It could have been a bad movie no one cared about. Angelina Jolie had a bad movie that year and no one cared. But it was because I was dating Jennifer Lopez that made it a big f*cking deal. So not only was it just a bad movie but ‘they dated each other,’” Ben said during his TimesTalk earlier in the week. Angelina made two films in 2003: Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Beyond Borders.

“There was a reporter doing stand-up in front of the theater that Friday morning, [saying] ‘Here I am outside of Gigli, and as you can see, no one is here in line. I was like, ‘What is this, hurricane coverage?’” Ben added.

Ben and Jennifer Lopez were together until 2004.

    LOL!! No he is not bitter at all…..he is a very negative person, she is the total opposite, she could have taught him a few things, but they were young and the world and Ben weren’t ready.
