Jennifer Lopez is reportedly regretful of her career choices after seeing Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s success at the Golden Globe Awards, especially after Ben won the award for Best Director. A friend of Lopez’s reportedly told Star Magazine, “Ben winning that award really hit her in a weird way. She used to brag that she’d win an Oscar by the time she was 45, and that doesn’t seem likely. Plus, her music career isn’t what it used to be.”
Lopez famously used to date Affleck in the early 2000s, but has long since broken up with him and is now dating a back-up singer, Casper Smart. But is she regretting that, too? The source adds, “Ben’s wife is very successful and respected in the industry and J.Lo can tell that she and Ben are very happily married. Then she looked at her own relationships: she’s dating a backup dancer who’s nearly half her age and riding her coattails.”
The source continues, “Jennifer acted happy for Ben that night – but the truth is, she became very embarrassed about her own life… her loved ones are worried and constantly tell her she should give herself more credit, but Jennifer is really in the dumps.”
Although it might be a bit of an exaggeration to say Jennifer is really ‘in the dumps’, especially as she’s a millionaire singer/actress who still commands attention in the industry. However, it’s definitely true that her cache as an actress has gone down in the past few years, especially after ‘Gigli’. While it’s true that Ben also suffered in the aftermath, that fact that he’s managed to bounce back nicely while J. Lo still hasn’t recovered her movie career has to be somewhat upsetting to her.
