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.

“It frustrated me. The Netflix show does really cool stuff,” Ben added. “I feel like that was there for us to do with that character, and we never kind of got it right. I wanted to do one of those movies and sort of get it right.”

That same evening, Ben met up with his co-stars Sienna Miller, Chris Cooper, Elle Fanning and Chris Messina at their Official Academy screening of Live By Night hosted by the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at MOMA – Celeste Bartos Theater.

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Arrive to Church Separately

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were spotted stepping out for church this past Sunday (December 11) in Brentwood, Calif.

The estranged couple, both 44, entered the service through separate doors – Jennifer through the front entrance and Ben through the side.

They were joined by their kids, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4 (not pictured).

Ben recently opened up about why he is taking his time with his upcoming film The Batman, which he is writing, directing, and starring in.

“I’m a real believer in not reverse engineering projects to meet a window or a date. So, that’s what we’re doing,” he told The New York Times for their TimesTalks series, adding that he wants the movie to be “iconic.”

“I’m really mindful of that,” he added. “I’m not in any hurry to jam a mediocre film down the pipe.”

Catch Ben in Live by Night (in theaters January 13), and don’t miss Jennifer in The Tribes of Palos Verdes (set for a 2017 release date).
