For a time at the front with Bennifer, things were relatively quiet as the reunited couple adjusted to life in front of the public.
Sure, there was a potentially very awkward run-in with Jennifer Garner, a date at the box office bomb premiere of Ben Affleck’s “The Last Duel” (millennials, obviously, it’s on us!) And A Rum-com-worthy airport kiss goodbye over the past few months.
But we’ve heard little about the romance from Affleck or Jennifer Lopez themselves, as they seem intent on learning from past mistakes of overexposure … maybe.
Conversation with WSJ. In a profile magazine published on Wednesday, Affleck publicly addressed his renewed romance with Lopez for the first time and even suggested that another chance of marriage could occur in the future.
“The most important thing is to be a good father,” he told the magazine. “The second most important thing is to be a good person. And a good man. And, supposedly, a good husband. With hope.”
When asked if he was referring to his current relationship with Lopez, Affleck said he decided to “show a little restraint” as he learned it was “unwise to share everything with the world.”
“There are some things that are personal and intimate and that matter in terms of their intimacy by virtue of the fact that they are not shared with the rest of the world,” he said. “It’s more convenient for me to just learn to find the boundary between what I want to share and what I don’t want. I know that it is more convenient for me to have these healthy boundaries in my life. “
However, speaking of the novel itself, Affleck admitted: “I can say that for me it is definitely beautiful.”
“My life now reflects not only the person I want to be, but also the person I really feel myself – which is not ideal, but a person who tries very hard and cares a lot about being honest, sincere and accountable.” he said. …
“I can just say that I feel great being very healthy,” he continued. “And this good story. it big history. And, you know, maybe one day I’ll tell it. I’ll write it all out. And then I’ll light it up. “
Ultimately, Affleck said, he feels “very lucky” to “get a second chance” in both life and love.
The union known as Bennifer, of course, first emerged in the early 2000s, when Affleck and Lopez struck up a romance while filming Gigli and got engaged shortly thereafter. They eventually canceled their wedding and parted ways in 2004, but reunited as a couple – after nearly two decades of separation – in April of this year.
“Life is hard and we always fail and hopefully learn from them. The only thing you really need to take advantage of this growth is a second chance, ”Affleck told WSJ. “I was definitely trying to take advantage of this. I didn’t always succeed, but when I did, they turned out to be the defining aspects of my life. ”
Lopez also spoke little to the press about Affleck, but in an interview last month, she didn’t rule out the possibility of walking down the aisle again with someone special one day.
“You know me. I’m romantic,” she told Today when asked if she could marry again in the future. “I’ve always been. I’ve been married several times. Yes, I still believe in” Happiness for life “, of course, 100 percent.”
