Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez went through quite a tough time while she was dating Ben Affleck a few years back and it was not exactly easy on Ben either. Jennifer has now opened up about that time of her life, claiming that she felt like she was being treated unfairly by the press.
Lopez explained to Ellen DeGeneres, “[Argo] was a great movie and, we got you know, a lot of like ... They were really hard on us in the press when we dated back in the day. On movies and things like that. So it was a nice moment. It was nice to see him have that moment. I was really happy for him.”
Ben himself previously stated that it was a tough time in his life, “[It] was definitely the annus horribilis. I got shorthanded as That Guy — Jennifer Lopez, movies bombed, therefore he must be a sort of thoughtless dilettante, solipsistic consumer, blah blah blah,” he said recently.
While Ben Affleck has been enjoying his deserved success at the Golden Globe Awards, he has been overlooked by The Academy, so will not be adding an Oscar to his collection.
