Ben Affleck Covers ‘The Hollywood Reporter’, Admits He Still Keeps In Touch With Jennifer Lopez
During his interview with THR, he said:
We don’t have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there’ll be an e-mail saying, ‘Oh, your movie looks great.’ I remember when she got American Idol. I said: ‘This was really smart. Good luck.’ I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She’s put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I’m really pleased to see her successful.
Although he still keeps in touch with his ex, the 40-year-old can’t help but gush over wife, Jennifer Garner.
He said: “She truly is kind. She means no one any harm. She doesn’t have ill will for any person. She’s not competitive with other people. She’s not spiteful. It’s one of those things where it becomes almost aggravating at times,” he joked. “Every time I go, ‘F— him!’ I see in her face that she just thinks that’s petty and small.”
The couple has been married for seven years and have three children together, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
Another relationship the Academy Award winner admits he is very fond of is his bromance with Matt Damon! The two have been friends for years and are closer than ever.
