Ben Affleck Says The Media Ate His J.Lo Relationship

October 27th, 2008 // 9 Comments

Now married to Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck admits that he believes his relationship to Jennifer Lopez was doomed from the start. The 36-year-old actor and director believes that they made the mistake of allowing the media too much into their personal lives.

The staunch Democrat said, “I think Jen and I made a mistake in that we fell in love, we were excited and maybe too accessible.” Of the infamy that “Bennifer” brought them, “I don’t think either of us anticipated the degree to which it would take on a world of its own.”

No matter what, they’ll always have “Jenny From The Block.” No matter where she goes, we know that Ben slapped that ass.

    It seems that the article that does not exist
    “NOW magazine” Why do this now..

    Lets talk about Tom Cruise and how wimpy he was with his spilt with Penelope Cruz that he down graded himself to ex tv star Katie Holmes…
    finally got married and had a daughter..

    He did not say this piece of dirt.. Get over it
    was 4 years ago.. but He married the wrong Jen
    it should of been Aniston..!! Since they both
    have to have their ex’s in their publicity!!
    Right MEDIA…

    Did he really bring this up now? That is mighty stupid of him to bring up the stupidest episode in his career (until now) and remind everyone about it. And yes, he has nobody but himself to blame for hyping Bennifer 1 and killing both their careers. On second thought, that was not such a bad thing for the public.

    Ben’s married with one child and another on the way, why talk about it now? Ben and JLo are two peas in a pod- both media hos who just got upset when the media turned nasty on them. Is Ben regretting that he didn’t have the balls to ride out the media storm and stay with JLo, so that he instead ended up with a fugly she-man who makes dirt look interesting? JLo doesn’t seem like the nicest person, but I’d never get tired of hitting that.

    NO BEN DOES NOT CARE ABOUT JLO TODAY AND NEITHER
    DOES JLO…THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT THEIR RELATIONSHIP SOMEONE DECIDE TO TO A LITTLE

    RECYCLE REUSE

    AN ARTICLE FROM 2004.. WHY STAY WITH SOMEONE WHEN WE ALL NOW THAT JLO WANTED A MARRIED MAN
    NAMED MARC ANTHONY .. AND MAKE HIM GET A DIVORCE
    SO THAT THEY CAN GET MARRIED 4 MONTHS LATER
    JUNE 29 2004..AND BEN HAS BEEN HAPPY EVER SINCE..

    To go from jennifer lopez to jennifer garner is depressing..If he was smart he could still be with jennifer lopez..Jlo is the best, such an amazing dancer and she is very pretty..suck for him that he lost her..

  8. kate

    What guy in their right mind would go from jlo to garner lol. Sucks for him that he lost her..Jlo is such an amazing dancer, artist and fucking beautiful..Oh well His lost..Guys can be idiots at times, they have the perfect lady and just fucks it up..He can blame himself for his failed career

  9. Payton

    Why is he blaming J-Lo? Ben is obsessed with her, and angry that they broke up. Ben is bored and stuck with Jen G, whom is knocked up again. Ben wants to spank Jenny from the Blocks ass again – yes, the happiest time of his life!
