Ben Affleck Praises Ex Jennifer Lopez's Work in 'Hustlers'

Ben Affleck is singing praises for his former fiancee Jennifer Lopez and her work in the movie Hustlers.

The 47-year-old actor spoke out during an interview with The New York Times and while the quote didn’t make it into his profile, journalist Brooks Barnes tweeted out some tidbits that didn’t make the final story.

“She should have been nominated. She’s the real thing,” Ben said about JLo. “I keep in touch periodically with her and have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That’s f–king baller.”

Ben and Jen got engaged in November 2002 and their September 2003 wedding was postponed just one day before the event was going to happen due to the media’s interference. They ultimately split in January 2004.
