Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Were Reportedly Vacationing in Montana Together

Bennifer update alert! Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have reportedly been spotted together again—this time in Montana.

This news comes a week after reports surfaced that the ex-fiancés had been hanging out post their respective breakupsLopez recently ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez, while Affleck split from Ana de Armas this January. 

According to People, the two were seen riding in a car near a resort in Big Sky, where Affleck has a home. “[Jennifer] spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It’s all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy,” the source said. TMZ reports that Affleck and Lopez flew back to L.A. together on May 9 and drove from LAX to her home in Bel-Air. 

Many fans were pleasantly surprised when the Affleck-Lopez reunion rumors first bubbled up in April. The former couple, often referred to as Bennifer, were engaged in 2002 but postponed their wedding just days before the planned nuptials. Bennifer was no more by January 2004. Six years later, Lopez referred to the iconic 6.1-carat pink diamond engagement ring he gave her as “whatever.”

“They are friends. They have always been friends and they have seen each other through the years,” a source told People in April.

During a recent InStyle profile of Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck sung her praises. “I thought I had a good work ethic, but I was completely humbled and blown away by what she was committed to doing day in and day out, the seriousness in which she took her work, the quiet and dedicated way she went about accomplishing her goals, and then how she would go back and redouble her efforts,” he said regarding their time as costars in movies like Jersey Girl and Gigli. “She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I’ve come across in this business. She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”

Affleck also asked the same question we all have about Lopez: “Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003, and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?” To that, Lopez responded, “Ben is funny! He still looks pretty good too.”
