Even Kate McKinnon’s Dr. Fauci couldn’t get enough of J.Lo and Ben Affleck’s reunion, 17 years after splitting — saying the news was just as good as the announcement that we no longer have to wear masks.

Saturday Night Live has been on fire all season, and this week’s episode hosted by Keegan-Michael Key, 50, was no exception! The comedian was joined by breakout musical star Olivia Rodrigo, 18, for the powerhouse May 15 episode — but it was Kate McKinnon who nailed the opening as Dr. Anthony Fauci. “It’s your boy Fauci the patron saint of Purrell. As you probably heard, we got some very good news this week and I’m not just talking about J.Lo and Ben Affleck,” she began in the cold open. “The CDC announced that people who are vaccinated no longer have to wear masks — outdoor or indoor. But people are confused and have some questions,” she added.

Of course, the Bennifer reunion has been making headlines all week! Ben, 48, and Jennifer, 51, were photographed for the first time in 17 years as they went on a seemingly romantic getaway to a resort in Big Sky, Montana. The pair had one of the most storied celebrity romances of the ’00s, right down to an iconic pink engagement ring from Harry Winston worth a whopping $2.5 million. While their 2004 breakup was full of drama, fans are so thrilled to see these two A-Listers give a second shot at their romance — including Kate’s Dr. Fauci!

Last week’s episode was another one to remember, hosted by Elon Musk, 49. While it was unusual to see the Tesla founder in a hosting capacity, he charmed his way through the episode that also included musical guest Miley Cyrus, 28. Miley replaced the cold open of the show with an epic Mother’s Day tribute, covering her godmother Dolly Parton‘s classic “Light Of A Clear Blue Morning.” Her own mom Tish Cyrus appeared on stage, as several SNL cast members brought their mothers on-stage for the segment.

Elon followed with his opening monologue immediately after, where he confirmed he has Asperger’s — explaining the condition affects his speech pattern. “It’s an honor to be hosting SNL — and I mean that. Sometimes I when I speak, I have to say ‘I mean that’ at the end because I don’t have a lot of intonation or variation when I speak,” Elon, said on stage “Which I’m told makes for great comedy. I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL,” he added. His mom, iconic model Maye Musk, also made an appearance during the monologue — along with girlfriend Grimes in a Mario Bros. inspired sketch.

SNL has taken a lighter turn since the 2020 election, which was President Joe Biden claim a victory over Donald Trump. Jim Carrey played Biden for a handful episodes, hilariously bantering in several sketches with Alec Baldwin‘s Trump. “Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks, I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President…” Jim wrote via Twitter at the end of his short run. “Comedy’s highest call of duty. I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that shit. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!” the Canadian born comedian added.

Alex Rodriguez enjoyed a family night with his girls Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, amid ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez’s reunion with Ben Affleck.

Alex Rodriguez, 45, seems to be keeping busy with his family following Bennifer’s surprise reunion. The former Yankee player shared as photo of a dinner with his daughter Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, to his Instagram account on Thursday, May 13. “Din din with my girls! #DaddyDinnerDate,” he captioned the sweet photo of the group around a set table.

They appeared to be enjoying various skewers, grilled vegetables and rice, which were beautifully laid out in dishes on the square table. In the photo, Alex appeared to be handing a skewer to Natasha. Ella appeared to be busy on her phone texting for the candid moment as her dad flashed a closed mouth smile. Various family photos could be seen behind them, but none including A-Rod’s ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez, 51.

Just days ago, Alex avoided answering reporter questions about Jen’s reignited romance with Ben Affleck, 48. A-Rod was dressed in a gray suit and blue dress shirt as he headed into a Miami restaurant, just four weeks after he and Jennifer confirmed their split to the TODAY show. Bennifer’s shocking reunion comes 17 years after the pair ended their highly publicized engagement (and Jen reportedly returned the $2.5 million pink diamond ring, designed by jeweler Harry Winston).

The Gigli co-stars appeared to enjoy a romantic getaway to Big Sky, Montana, which is one of Ben’s favorite spots. He was in the drivers seat of a large SUV as Jennifer rode in the passenger, clearly visible through the car windows. The low key trip was a chance for the two stars to reconnect after so many years, a source told HollywoodLife. “Ben had a great time with Jen in Montana, and he’s happy they were able to spend some one-on-one time together for a few days,” a source close to the Oscar winner EXCLUSIVELY told HL. “He isn’t putting any expectations on things and is taking things one day at a time. Ben pulled out a few stops by trying to impress Jen during their trip, and he even cooked for her on one or two occasions,” they also revealed of the trip.

Although Bennifer’s split was drama-filled back in 2004 (intense media scrutiny and an ill-fated Vancouver strip club visit both played a role), the pair were able to forage a friendship more recently. In 2020, Ben praised Jen for having her “biggest movie at 50” with Hustlers, and later expressed his appreciation for her work ethic in a recent InStyle article. “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?” the Boston native wrote in the short entry. At some point, the friendly vibes led to some flirty emails.

“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,” he added. “She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I’ve come across in this business,” he said. “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.” Jen was absolutely flattered by the kind words, replying, “Ben is funny! He still looks pretty good too.”

Ben Affleck has been spotted for the first time since jetting off to Montana with Jennifer Lopez. He had a security scare after an intruder tried to jump the gate as his L.A. home.

Hopefully Ben Affleck‘s Montana getaway with former fiancee Jennifer Lopez was a relaxing one. Because upon returning to Los Angeles, he had to deal with someone trying to sneak onto his gated property. The 48-year-old actor was photographed talking to members of the Pacific Palisades security patrol as he drove past in his SUV on Wed. May 12. A day prior, an intruder attempted to jump the fence at his home in the ritzy seaside enclave.

Ben could be seen wearing a dark shirt and sporting his full beard and mustache, as he leaned over from the driver’s seat and spoke to patrol officers via the passenger’s side window. After dealing with such a security scare, he must be longing for where he was a week ago, driving his SUV in Montana with Jennifer, 51, riding shotgun in his passenger’s seat. That was the last time Ben was photographed.

The reunited twosome was first photographed on Apr. 29 in Los Angeles, where Jen was seen in the back seat of a white Escalade, dropping Ben off at his house. It came exactly two weeks after J.Lo and now former fiance Alex Rodriguez announced in a joint statement that they had ended their four year relationship, two of which they were engaged. Then out of nowhere, time rewound back 17 years and Bennifer was spotted back together! It gave fans the sentimental feels about the pair when they were Hollywood’s most glamorous power couple in the early aughts.

Their friendly rendezvous then turned into something more, when Ben and Jen flew to Big Sky country on May 2, after they finished taping their parts in the Vax Live event at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium. There they stayed at the ultra private and exclusive Yellowstone Club.

The way they were! Ben Affleck and then-fiance Jennifer Lopez attend the Los Angeles premiere of his movie Daredevil on Feb. 9, 2003.

“Ben had a great time with Jen in Montana, and he’s happy they were able to spend some one-on-one time together for a few days,” a source close to the Argo actor shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife. “He isn’t putting any expectations on things and is taking things one day at a time. Ben pulled out a few stops by trying to impress Jen during their trip, and he even cooked for her on one or two occasions.”

“They haven’t been able to spend time together like this in years, and he really enjoyed her company and catching up,” the source said of the former couple, who broke off their engagement in 2004. “Ben had a great time with Jen in Montana, [but] he isn’t putting any expectations on things and is taking things one day at a time.”

For now, Jennifer is back in Miami doing one of the things she loves the most: working out! While Ben was in L.A. dealing with security issues, J.Lo was photographed for the first time since their Montana trip. She hit up a private gym wearing tight rainbow leggings, an ab-baring cropped white t-shirt tied at the waist, and a coral sports bra. Hopefully it won’t be too long until fans see Bennifer reunited once again, as 17 years was so long to wait!

Sharon’s response came after comedian Michelle Collins reposted a pic of Jennifer and Ben in a car together during their trip along with the caption, “J-Lo’s been with him for like 2 weeks and he’s hot as shit again. I bet his phoenix back tattoo is slowly disappearing like the photo in Back to the Future.” The actress’ short but effective comment read, “Yeah I mean WTF A-Rod?”

Bette Midler

#BenAffleck & #JenniferLopez might be back together? Aww. That's nice, but I was hoping that if we could bring anything back from the early 2000's it would be my pelvic floor muscles.

— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) May 11, 2021

Bette took to Twitter to tweet a hilarious comment about the nostalgia of Jennifer and Ben. “#BenAffleck & #JenniferLopez might be back together?” she tweeted. “Aww. That’s nice, but I was hoping that if we could bring anything back from the early 2000’s it would be my pelvic floor muscles.”

Kevin Smith

“Bennifer” is trending.
It’s a name I first gave the kids during “Jersey Girl” pre-production, before the world found out they were dating.
I’d later drop the name in an interview with the @nytimes. Shortly thereafter, it appeared in the article and then entered the vernacular.

— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) May 10, 2021

Kevin Smith directed the 2004 film Jersey Girl, which starred the on-again, off-again couple and shared a tweet in which he took credit for their couple nickname. “‘Bennifer’ is trending. It’s a name I first gave the kids during ‘Jersey Girl’ pre-production, before the world found out they were dating,” he wrote. “I’d later drop the name in an interview with the @nytimes. Shortly thereafter, it appeared in the article and then entered the vernacular.”

Ben’s good friend Matt Damon made headlines on May 11 when he was asked about Jennifer and Ben’s reconciliation on Today. “There’s not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that,” he joked while adding he hadn’t heard about the Montana trip before the pics went public. “It’s a fascinating story. I hope it’s true. I love them both. … That would be awesome.”

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg brought on some laughs during a recent episode of The View when the topic of Jennifer and Ben came up. As co-host Sara Haines started talking about why she thinks the former lovebirds should get back together, the Sister Act star fell asleep in her chair. “I’m just going to rest my eyes while you talk about this” she said to her co-hosts at one point before closing her eyes again.

Spencer Pratt

Spencer Pratt simply retweeted a tweet that seemed to indicate his interest in Jennifer and Ben’s status. It included the recent car pic of the stars along with the caption, “I had zero interest in any celebrity couples in 2002 (other than Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake), so I missed the Bennifer train. I’m happy to announce, however, that I’m fully on board in 2021.”

Brad Smith

Food Network Canada star Brad Smith also capped things off by sharing his upbeat post which read, “I knew there was a light at the end of #COVID19 #Bennifer.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s relationship is ‘happening’ and ‘going with the flow’, a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HL.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, and Ben Affleck, 48, are giving fans true nostalgia with their latest reported hangouts, and it turns out another romance between them is “happening.” After breaking off their engagement back in 2004, these two are taking a “casual” approach this time around. “Things between Ben and Jennifer are very casual right now, but it’s happening,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.

“They’re taking things very slow,” the insider added. “She’s always said in interviews he’s the one that got away and she means it. They’re just going with the flow of it all right now and not overthinking or putting pressure on it. Everyone thought this was just for the press, but it’s not. It’s very real.”

Jennifer and Ben were reportedly first spotted together again just weeks after she announced her split from fiance Alex Rodriguez, 45, last month. They reportedly hung out multiple times at the end of Apr. and Ben was even pictured exiting what was believed to be Jennifer’s white Escalade SUV on Apr. 29. Although initial reports claimed the two were just being “friendly” like they have been for years, more alleged hangouts since then has reportedly led to them giving their relationship another try.

“Bennifer”, as they used to be called, were most recently reportedly seen at the Big Sky Resort in Montana this past weekend. They flew out of the western state on the morning of May 9, according to TMZ, and once they got to LAX, they “took an SUV together and drove to [Jennifer’s] house in Bel-Air.” E! News also reported that they actually flew out to Montana after they filmed the VAX LIVE concert taping on May 2 and stayed there “for about a week.”

Jennifer and Ben originally started dating way back in 2002 after they met on the set of their film Gigli. The singer was married to backup dancer Cris Judd, 51, during their initial meeting but by June 2002, the husband and wife decided to divorce and Jen and Ben’s sparks soon began to ignite. They were engaged in Nov. of the same year and just a few days before their planned wedding in Sept. 2003, they decided to postpone the event. Their split came just a few months later in Jan. 2004.

The train on Chrissy Teigen’s gorgeous orange gown was lifted up by her adorable daughter Luna as they posed for eye-catching photos at Global Citizen’s pro-vaccine event.

Chrissy Teigen‘s daughter Luna, 5, had a little fun with her mom’s dress at Global Citizen’s VAX Live concert on May 2! The adorable tot, who was wearing her own pastel-colored dress and white sandals, hid under the long train section of the pretty orange choice, which was also a mini dress, as she helped to lift it up while photographers took cute photos of the duo backstage. Chrissy, 35, couldn’t help but laugh during some moments when she spotted her mini me being cheeky.

In addition to the funny antic backstage, Luna stole the show on the carpet of the event when she continued to lift up the train and hide under it while also running off and out of sight at one point in the middle of Chrissy’s entrance. It was definitely a highlight of the event, which was meant to celebrate the new COVID-19 vaccines with various celebs, including Prince Harry, Jennifer Lopez, and Ben Affleck.

When people weren’t paying attention to Luna, Chrissy wowed in her dress, which she paired with tan strappy heels. She also had her long blondish locks down and parted in the middle and showed jewelry that included gold rings and dangling earrings. After participating in the upcoming streamed event, she took to Instagram to show off photos of her sitting and relaxing in her dress as well as a funny caption expressing gratitude for being a part of it.

“was truly an honor even to f*ck up my lines in front of 20,000 people. I missed that. I miss people so much,” she wrote. “I miss making people smile and laugh. My purpose. This week I learned the word “mudita” – sympathetic joy, joy from giving others joy. That is me. That is my joy! Thank you @glblctzn and @caseypattersontv for having me at #vaxlive!!”

Chrissy’s VAX Live appearance comes over a year since we last saw her at a red carpet event. The beauty went to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Feb. 2020 , her last event before the COVID-19 pandemic caused cancellations of all events around the world.

Chrissy and other stars can be seen at the VAX Live concert when it premieres on ABC, CBS and YouTube on May 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Ben Affleck Reunites With His Son Samuel, 9, & Daughter Seraphina, 12 After Wrapping New Movie

Ben Affleck is back home in L.A. after wrapping a film on the East Coast. He’s already on daddy duty taking son Sam to his swim club and going shopping with daughter Seraphina.

Now that Ben Affleck has wrapped filming The Tender Bar in Boston with pal George Clooney, he’s got time to spend with his kids as they go about their activities. The 48-year-old hunk was photographed taking his nine-year-old son Samuel to his Friday swim team practice Apr. 23. He lovingly put his arm on his youngest child’s shoulder as they walked into the pool facility. You can see the photos of Ben with Samuel and later with daughter Seraphina here.

Ben was seen looking slim and trim in a pair of black jeans and a black zip front hooded sweater. While he had a protective face mask on, it appears he’s already growing back his beard after going with a clean-shaven look for several months. He had plenty of dark stubble that was visible on his lower cheek and chin area. He topped off his look with green trainers.

Samuel looked ready to hit the pool in a blue thigh-high wetsuit with matching slide on Adidas sandals. He carried a backpack over his shoulder on the way in to swim practice, but must have got quite a workout as dad Ben thoughtfully held it for him as they left the facility. Samuel’s shoulder length blonde locks were still wet from the pool as the two walked back to Ben’s car.

While the Argo star had quality time with his son that day, he spent one on one time with daughter Seraphina, 12, on Saturday Apr. 24. The two were photographed leaving a bookstore together. Ben apparently really liked his outfit from the day prior, as he wore the same black jeans, hoodie sweater and green sneakers once again and just added a leather jacket to his look.

Seraphina showed off her new short, close cropped haircut. The two each wore face masks, and it helped show how Ben’s middle child looks so much like him. They have the same eyes, while Samuel and Ben’s oldest daughter Violet, 15, look much more like their mom, Jennifer Garner, 49. Seraphina wore a shout-out to Jen’s organic food company Once Upon A Farm by wearing a grey zip-front sweatshirt with the brand’s name written on one sleeve. She paired it with black leggings and color-blocked Nike sneakers on her feet. Seraphina carried a paper shopping bag and held on to a refreshing glass of lemonade.

Ben had spent the last few months on the East Coast filming Clooney’s latest directorial effort. The Amazon Studios film is based on J.R. Moehringer‘s coming of age memoir about growing up in Long Island and all of the “father figures among the patrons at his uncle’s bar,” according to imdb.com. Ben is playing Uncle Charlie in the film.

Now that Ben Affleck is done shooting his movie, the 45-year-old actor is back in Los Angeles with his children. That means he could take his son Samuel to swim practice, where they were photographed together.

Ben Affleck has been all over the place, from shooting on movie sets in Massachusetts to taking his son to swim practices in Los Angeles! On April 16, the 45-year-old actor was occupied with the latter duty. Ben could be seen with his son Samuel, 9, as they got out of a vehicle outside of Samuel’s swim team practice in Los Angeles. Samuel was geared up for practice, while Ben hid his recently-shaved face behind a medical face mask.

Ben can let his beard grow out now if he pleases too, since the actor finished shooting his latest movie called The Tender Bar. On April 14, Ben could be seen sharing a celebratory hug with his director, fellow famous actor George Clooney, as they wrapped up filming for the movie about a “a boy growing up on Long Island” who “seeks out father figures among the patrons at his uncle’s bar,” per the film’s description on IMDb. The movie is an on-screen adaptation of the memoir of the same name written by J. R. Moehringer.

Filming took place in Massachusetts, which required Ben to spend time away from Los Angeles where his kids Samuel, Seraphina, 12, and Violet, 15, live along with their mom (Ben’s ex-wife), Jennifer Garner, 49. Ben’s facial hair took a wild journey amid shooting: at first, he sported a very grown-out beard while filming on the East Coat in the middle of March. It eventually vanished, and Ben looked years younger as he was seen playing softball beard-free with George on April 7.

A one-month-old throwback: Ben Affleck is seen here with his movie beard while filming The Tender Bar in Massachusetts on March 12, 2021. [BACKGRID]Ben still flew back to LA amid filming, though. He was even seen picking up his son, Samuel, from swim practice in LA on March 26. Ben really is a devoted father: he can act on a big-budget movie while still doing regular dad duties! This is nothing new, though. Before the pandemic, Ben was always spotted picking up his three kids from school.

Ben Affleck looked like a different man, showing off his beard-free, clean shaven new look while picking up his son from a swim team practice.

Ben Affleck has rocked a beard for so many years, so his new clean-shaven look is quite head-turning without any facial hair. The 48-year-old looked remarkably fresh faced on Mar. 26 as he was on daddy duty, picking up nine-year-old son Samuel from a swimming practice in Los Angeles. The normally buff Ben has dropped quite a bit of weight, as his now visible jawline was very pronounced, and his legs appeared incredibly lean inside of his slim fitting black jeans.

Ben could be seen talking on the phone as his youngster walked beside him wearing a blue thigh-high wetsuit, matching Adidas slides and a warm blue jacket over him. The Argo star thoughtfully carried his son’s backpack for him after his tiring day in the pool.

Ben’s incredibly slimmed down body seemed to coincide with his latest movie The Tender Bar, directed by his pal George Clooney. He’s been filming it on the East Coast, and in photos of Ben on set on Mar. 13, he looked trimmer than he has been in years. Ben sported a beard in the film, which is gone now. But he seems to have kept the grown out, slightly bushy hairstyle that he wore in his role of a Long Island bar owner.

The timing of Ben’s weight loss also seemed to coincide with his split from girlfriend of nearly a year, Ana de Armas, 32,. The two broke up in Jan. 2021, though it was reportedly amicable and had more to do with the fact that she allegedly didn’t want to put down roots in Los Angeles. For Ben, the city will always be home as long as his ex-wife Jennifer Garner and their three kids Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12 and Sam live nearby. Even Ben’s brother Casey Afflec has nothing but glowing things to say about Ana post-split, calling her a “catch.”

Ben was last seen clean shaven in an Oct. 2020 video with longtime pal Matt Damon, 50, where the two men teamed up with Omaze to pledge a charity dinner and a hang session in Hollywood with the two movie superstars. In Ben’s most recent films, 2020’s drama The Way Back, 2019’s action thriller Triple Frontier, the actor sported his heavy beard. In May 2020, Ben appeared to have dyed the grey out of his beard, as it went from being a sexy salt and pepper to dark brown overnight. But now he’s back to having to pick up a razor every morning, and still looks just as handsome.

From divorced couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, to Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, these stars make staying friends after a break up look SUPER easy.

Some people will disagree, but believe it or not it IS possible to have a friendship with your ex once you fall out of live. Don’t believe it? Too bad, because HollywoodLife is coming with the receipts! We’ve uncovered at least 20 former celebrity couples that were once head-over-heels in love, but now they are just two mature adults maintaining a friendship. Whether it’s because they are better off that way or because they are a modern day family keeping the peace for their kids, it works and we love it!

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner

Let’s start with the most obvious and most recent: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, both 48. They met while starring together on Daredevil, fell madly in love and were married for 10 years before filing for divorce. They have three beautiful children together, and although their split was upsetting (and clouded in cheating allegations), they proved to be total adults about it.

Not only did they put their family first, but they traveled the world with their children and turned their romantic love into a mutual respect for one another. That extended to when Ben dated Knives Out actress Ana de Armas from March 2020 to January 2021. If only all divorced couples could do this, the world might be a happier place.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon, 40, and Mariah Carey, 51, were married from 2008 to 2016. While their love didn’t last, the parents to twins Moroccan and Monroe (now 9) have kept up a friendly co-parenting relationship amidst other romances — Mariah’s engagement to James Packer and Nick’s relationship with Lanisha Cole.

Nick gushed over Mariah in a June 2020 interview. “I mean, it’s Mariah Carey. How am I supposed to be? She’s one of the most talented women to ever this planet. I can’t hold a candle to that woman,” he told Variety at the time. Nick told HollywoodLife in an interview after their 2016 divorce was finalized that their friendship works because of love. “Honestly, you never get rid of the love, especially when you put the kids first,” he shared.

Ben Affleck looked totally different while rocking a beard and a slimmer figure on the set of ‘The Tender Bar’.

Ben Affleck is sporting a whole new look for George Clooney‘s upcoming movie. The Oscar winner, 48, was spotted on The Tender Bar set looking incredibly slimmed down and nearly unrecognizable — especially when you add his full beard to the mix. Ben was also sporting a more grown out hairdo than his usual closely cropped style.

Ben debuted his salt and pepper beard at the beginning of February, shortly after his break up with girlfriend Ana de Armas. The actor apparently split from his razor, too. The growing beard, which now appears to be for work (and not a breakup charge) was first spotted when Ben was — what else? — picking up some Dunkin’ Donuts delivery from outside his Los Angeles home. If there’s anything you can count on, it’s Ben making sure he gets his Dunkin’ iced coffee fix.

Ben’s gone through some other serious changes in 2021, like that shocking Ana split. There were no hard feelings for the couple of over a year who quarantined together, according to a report; they just had different priorities in life. “Once work picked up, things started to change,” a source told The New York Post at the time.

Ben had just signed on for a supporting role in The Tender Bar, after all. And Ana was busy with The Gray Man, a film that would reunite her with her Knives Out co-star Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling. A big deal! It’s clear that Ben is absolutely thriving as a single guy now — just look at how incredible he looks!

Ana De Armas listened to ‘You Sent Me Flying’ by Amy Winehouse on her way to work today. Could the song’s heartbreaking lyrics be a not-so-subtle message to Ben Affleck?

Ana de Armas, 32, and Ben Affleck, 48, were together for nearly a year before abruptly splitting in January. Neither have commented on the break-up. But, Ana may have just given fans a glimpse into her emotional state. The Cuban born beauty filmed herself on her car ride to work and shared the video to her Instagram stories on Feb. 4.

In the clip, her adorable dogs Salsa and Elvis can be seen enjoying the journey with her. Ana, who’s wearing a sea-green crewneck sweatshirt, appears to be in a pensive mood. In the background, Amy Winehouse‘s 2004 song “You Sent My Flying” is playing.

In Ana’s video, a snippet of the song’s chorus, with the lines, ‘With your battered jeans and your Beasties tee/ Now I can’t work like this, no, no, with you next to me” can be heard. The two prior lines of the chorus are even more emotional. “And although my pride is not easy to disturb, yeah/You sent me flying when you kicked me to the curb,” Amy sings, mourning the end of a relationship.

Ana and Ben began dating in 2019 after meeting on the set of their upcoming thriller Deep Water. The pair were inseparable after filming wrapped. Ana even spent time with his three kids, who he shares with Jennifer Garner — Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 8.

[SplashNews]But last month the news broke that they had split because they were at different places in their lives. And just hours later, a cardboard cutout of the Knives Out actress was photographed being thrown in a trash bin outside the Oscar winner’s Los Angeles area home. A not so cryptic sign that Ben was moving on.

Now that Ben and Ana have broken up, they’re both keeping busy with work. Ana is playing a Bond girl in No Time To Die in 2021. She’s also starring as Marilyn Monroe in the Netflix biopic Blonde. Meanwhile, Ben will appear in Zack Snyder’s Justice League as well as The Last Duel.

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ pandemic relationship lasted nearly a year before they called it quits when they had to make some important decisions about their lives.

Ben Affleck, 48, and Ana de Armas, 32, ended their romance when the two realized that they wanted different things. After dating for almost a year when the COVID-19 pandemic had people in lockdown most of the time, the actor and actress reportedly decided to go their separate ways when work picked up and they had to address some important terms.

“The quarantine was unique because they had downtime and ­really got to know each other spending time at home,” a source told The Post. “But once work picked up, things started to change.”

Ana just signed on to star in The Gray Man, a film also starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling, and Ben is starring in George Clooney’s adaptation of the book The Tender Bar.

Before their breakup, Ben and Ana were spotted out in public several times throughout most of 2020. They went on strolls while walking pets and even hung out with Ben’s kids, Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Sam, 8, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 48. They also went on coffee runs and showed off PDA almost every time before their split was reported this week.

Rumors of their split first started when they didn’t spend the holidays together. Ana went back to Cuba, where her family is. She also has a home there and that’s part of the reason she and Ben couldn’t make it work. “She’s here for work reasons; like all actors, she lives wherever work takes her,” one of Ana’s friends said, according to Page Six.

“Ana decided she doesn’t want to live in LA and Ben wants to be close to his family,” a source also told the outlet. “His priority is to be rooted in LA. They are in different places [in their lives].”

Another reason for the split involved having a future family. Ana wants to someday have children of her own while a source said Ben doesn’t want more kids, Page Six also reported. “Ben is not in a place to start a new family,” the source explained. “Both he and Ana have three jobs lined up. His family has, and will continue to be, his focus.”

Ben and Ana first met on the set of the film Deep Water, which was filmed in 2019 and were spotted together shortly after. Some of their first public outings included trips to Cuba and Costa Rica.

HollywoodLife has reached out to Ben and Ana’s reps for comment but we have yet to hear a response.

Casey Affleck has nothing but love for brother Ben Affleck’s ex Ana de Armas. He thinks she’s such a catch that she ‘won’t have any problems meeting someone else.’

Ana de Armas sure made a positive impression on now ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck‘s younger brother Casey. The 45-year-old actor positively gushed about her in a new interview, four days after it was revealed that Ben, 48, and Ana, 32, had split after nearly a year of dating. The couple lived together during the COVID-19 lockdown in spring 2020 and seemed to have a good thing going. “The reality is, I think that this year has been really hard on people in relationships,” Casey told Entertainment Tonight in a new interview while promoting his new movie Our Friend.

Casey believes Ana won’t have any issue in finding a new boyfriend, because he thinks she’s so incredible. “I think that Ana is just the sweetest, funniest, smartest, most charming person. I think she won’t have any problems meeting somebody else,” he explained. The Oscar winner also said he’ll be there for his brother, and believes Ben will have no problem finding love again either.

“I think she’s a catch in every way. And I’ll be there to carry Ben through it, but I don’t think he’ll have any problems [either],” Casey revealed. But he seemed to hope that they find new partners, telling the site, “My advice to them would be like, ‘Yes, think long and hard about it, because quarantine is not fun if you’re single.’”

Casey said that Ana is going to have an amazing year professionally, so she might not even have time for a new beau. “I saw her performance as Marilyn Monroe in this movie called Blonde, which hasn’t come out, and I would bet a lot that she’s gonna pick up every single award. She’s gonna have a good year. I’m not too worried about her.”

As for the photo of a man with a mask throwing away a cardboard cutout of Ana into Ben’s trash bin outside of his home, many folks on Twitter claimed that it was Casey doing the deed as they appeared to have similar eyes. “No, that’s not me,” the Manchester By The Sea star confessed to ET.

“A bunch of people sent that picture to me and I was gonna tweet some, like, joke, response or something. And then I couldn’t think of one and a joke didn’t seem appropriate,” he said. “And I don’t have Twitter so that wasn’t going to work. But it definitely wasn’t me.” Well that’s a relief, especially after he had such nice things to say about Ana!

Ben Affleck and his girlfriend Ana de Armas were spotted taking a stroll and doing some shopping with two of his three kids, including daughter Seraphina and son Samuel, in Pacific Palisades, CA.

Ben Affleck, 48, reunited with two of his three kids, including Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8, on Nov. 28 when he returned to the Los Angeles area after filming the movie, Deep Water, in New Orleans, LA over the past few weeks. The doting dad was joined by his girlfriend and co-star Ana de Armas, 32, when he and the kids, who he shares with ex Jennifer Garner, 48, went on a shopping trip at Bonjour Fête at Palisades Village in Pacific Palisades, CA, and looked as happy as could be while walking in the area. They were also seen taking in some relaxation and fun at a park on the same day.

Ben looked handsome during the outing in a  gray blazer over a dark-colored shirt with pants and Ana looked casually stylish in a sleeveless top with a sweater tied around her shoulders and a long skirt. Seraphina looked comfortable in a white T-shirt and blue pants while Samuel wore a blue long-sleeved jacket that had multi-colored stripes across the front and black pants. All four of them also wore protective face masks to keep themselves and others safe from the coronavirus.

At one point during the day, Ana was seen talking and spending time with Samuel while they visited the park and they looked to be getting on well with each other. “Ana was very social with the kids and they also took a family selfie together,” an eyewitness told ET about the outing. The eyewitness also said they appeared to buy birthday party supplies when they were shopping but it’s unclear who they were for.

This isn’t the first time Ana, who met Ben on the set of Deep Water earlier this year, has spent time with him and his brood. The lovebirds started dating around March and it wasn’t long before the actress was seen fitting in nicely with him and his kids, including his oldest daughter, Violet, 14. Her first public outing with them took place in May when they all enjoyed a nice stroll in the Brentwood area with Jennifer’s family dog, Birdie, and Ben’s German Shepherd, Hutch.

Ben’s relationship with Ana has seemed to be going really well and the fact that she gets along with his three kids is surely making things even better.  “[Ben] met [Ana] at the right time in his life. He likes that she’s fun, beautiful and easy to get along with,” a previous source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife about Ben’s feelings for the brunette beauty. Whether or not they plan on taking their romance to the next level, such as an engagement and/or marriage, in the near future, remains to be seen. “There’s no pressure which is nice,” the source said.

It took months of viewing, but Jennifer Garner and her three kids finally made it through watching every episode of ‘The Office.’ Jen was so emotional by the finale that she was openly weeping.

Bless her heart! Jennifer Garner is just the cutest, proving that she can be so emotionally moved after watching all nine seasons of The Office that she broke down in tears. The 48-year-old and her three kids Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Sam, 8, by ex-husband Ben Affleck started watching an episode a day of the former NBC sitcom at the beginning of quarantine in March, and now that they’re done, she’s missing her TV family from Dunder Mifflin so much. Since she’s an absolutely creative goddess with her Instagram account, Jennifer showed a video of herself having all the feels at their marathon viewing of the beloved show coming to an end.

My kids and I have spent months piled on the couch working our way through “How to Behave as Grownups” 🙅🏻‍♀️, aka #TheOffice. Apparently we are sensitive people—the finale hit us pretty hard. When I realized I’d accidentally shot my farewell testimonial in slo-mo I realized: your Monday might need this, too. 🙈👵🏼😬♥️♥️♥️ #thankyoucastandcrew #pleasecomeoverweloveyou #icantwithfinales

A post shared by Jennifer Garner (@jennifer.garner) on Aug 24, 2020 at 4:12pm PDT

“My kids and I have been…” she began telling the camera with red eyes. Jen was seen wearing a Dunder Mifflin t-shirt in honor of the fictional paper sales company featured on the show. She even stood in front of a multicolored message board with “Thank you Dunder Mifflin” written on it, so the Elektra star and her kids had turned into major The Office mega-fans.

The video then turned into slow-motion, showing Jennifer in different stages of sobbing (which she later explained the slow-mo turned out to be an accident). She then set it to a narration once she got all of her emotions out of her system. “You’ll never guess what show my kids and I watched an episode a day throughout quarantine and guess what, we finished it! And guess what, it gave me some really big feelings,” Jen explained in the sweetest voice about how moved she appeared in the vid.

“Oh bless your heart. Oh look who needed a big cry and maybe a shower would have been helpful,” she jokingly continued while describing herself in the weepy video. “But its just nice to know that you can still feel so much passion about something, right? So thank you. If you’ve ever heard of the show The Office, you should try it. It’s wonderful,” she concluded. One of her daughters could be heard off camera saying Jim’s phrase while mocking Dwight, “Bears beets Battlestar Galactica,” which Jen smiled and repeated back to the camera once the video returned to normal speed.


“My kids and I have spent months piled on the couch working our way through ‘How to Behave as Grownups,’ aka #TheOffice. Apparently we are sensitive people—the finale hit us pretty hard. When I realized I’d accidentally shot my farewell testimonial in slo-mo I realized: your Monday might need this, too,” Jennifer wrote in the caption, along with the hashtags, #thankyoucastandcrew #pleasecomeoverweloveyou #icantwithfinales.”

Jen had fans and celebrity pals loving her honesty over feeling so at a loss after she had completed watching The Office‘s nine season run, which aired on NBC from 2005-2013. Actress Zoe Saldana left hearts and applause emojis in the comments, while Kimberly Williams Paisley told her friend, “Oh my LORD this is the best thing EVER. Thank you. #theofficeforever #slowmobeatsbattlestargalactica.”

Probably the best comment came from Pam Beesley herself, as The Office star Jenna Fischer told Jen, “Oh Lady!! This is the sweetest and most wonderful post!! Sending you lots of love and if you want to start over @angelakinsey and I are re-watching for the podcast. We are in the middle of Season 3 and have major feelings about lots of moments (Art Show, Dwight comforting Pam…).” Sounds like a great way for Jen to get back into her emotions about the show while hearing the stars discuss it.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The first trailer for ‘The Batman’ with Robert Pattinson made its big debut on Aug. 22. Batman, Catwoman, and more are taking things to a whole new level.

The first trailer for The Batman was beyond epic. The trailer opens with a message from the Riddler (Paul Dano) to Batman (Robert Pattinson). Detective James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) wants to know if Batman knows what this guy wants from him. That’s what everyone wants to know.

But Batman has more than just the Riddler on his hands. Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz) is lurking in the darkness. At one point, Batman comes across Catwoman and they fight it out. You can already FEEL the chemistry. Batman also beats someone to a pulp in front of a group of people. When someone asks who he is supposed to be, Batman replies, “I’m vengeance.”

Rob opened the DC FanDome panel and said he was “very anxious to get back to work.” He admitted that he’s “always been a massive fan” of Batman, but he couldn’t spill any scoop about the movie without getting in trouble for spoilers!

Director Matt Reeves teased that Paul Dano’s Riddler is “a version of the Riddler that no one has seen before” and will “blow people’s minds.” Other stars include Colin Farrell as Penguin, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and more. Zoe talked about Rob stepping into the role of Batman and why she is all for it during her interview with our sister site Variety.

“We have the illusion of Bruce Wayne, and then we have Batman in the shadows that has a lot more complicated things going on,” she said. “So just in that, I think he’s perfect for this role,” Zoe explains. She adds, “He can relate in that way, and he looks good in the suit, man. He looks good in the suit. That’s a good jawline.”

Robert is one of many actors who have taken on the role of the Dark Knight. Most recently, Ben Affleck starred as Batman. Other actors who have played the iconic role include Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney. Production on The Batman started in Jan. 2020 with principal photography. Filming was suspending in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Production is expected to kick back up in Sept. 2020. The Batman is set to be released on Oct. 1, 2021.

Ben Affleck was spotted on a Whole Foods run with his girlfriend, Ana de Armas and 14-year-old daughter Violet on June 5. The actress and teen matched in ripped denim jeans for the shopping trip. And, the trio left the store with a bouquet of stunning red roses!

Ben Affleck‘s kids seem to be a big fan of his girlfriend Ana de Armas! She was spotted with The Way Back actor, 47, and his 14-year-old daughter Violet at Whole Foods in California on Friday afternoon. The trio donned casual clothes for the grocery run, with Ana and Violet dressed in similar distressed jeans. Ben, Ana and Violet were all pictured entering and exiting Whole Foods with protective masks on amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ben, who was pictured on his phone, stepped out in a pair of tinted, black aviators. He sported grey pants with a brown button-up and matching combat boots. The actor’s other daughter, Seraphina, 11, and son Samuel, 8, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, were not present during the outing. And, after the shopping trip, Seraphina may have a sisterly bone to pick with Violet. The eldest of the Affleck kids was pictured wearing a cream-colored sweatshirt that said “Favorite Daughter” on the front with a red heart. Violet, who’s taller than Ana in the new photos, also wore a pair of glasses.

The couple and the teen exited the store with a full cart of groceries. While it’s unclear what they stocked up on, a beautiful bouquet of red roses could be see poking through the brown bags in their cart. Ben, like the true gentleman he is, pushed the cart of items to their vehicle.

Although the lovebirds’ romance is in its beginning stages, Ben and Ana seem smitten with one another. The pair first sparked romance rumors after they were spotted vacationing together in Havana, Cuba, in March. Ben and Ana play husband and wife in the upcoming psychological thriller Deep Water, which is expected to be released this coming November.

Ten Typ Mes – Alkopoligamia 2013 Lyrics

[Intro]
Eeej
Może mam dla każdego cztery wersy, ale tak naprawdę stawiam szóstkę!

[Verse 1]
Alkopoligamia – głupie imię, na spółkę córkę
Ale tak ją nazwałem, ta mała nie płynie z nurtem
Przystań, gdzie jeden rzuca krzesłem, drugi siedzi za biurkiem
Każdy zasłużył na czwórkę
Kajtek a.k.a. Hade głosem do zadumy zmusza
Choć czasem myślę że słyszę krewnego Sokoła i Fokusa
Jeszcze te jego gały jakby miały X-Ray
Prześwietla te dupy nawet kiedy nie chce
Lekceważysz go, przyjdzie mu z pomocą Mada
Skrada się cicho, bo nie pije, sztywny jak balustrada,
Na balu gadasz z nim o książkach, palisz
Pochodzi z dzielnicy w której niełatwo portfel ocalić
Zaznajamia mnie z tą stroną Warszawy
Tak jak Theodor też preferuje brzeg prawy
Ciągle się z nim sprzeczam, bo to gość bystry
W oczach iskry, lubię zaliczać od niego asysty
Gdy się dzieli myślą, i to samo mam z Pjusem
Kibicem, prawicowym eks-chlejusem,
Gdy już gęste jest powietrze, pijemy za lustracje
I olewamy politykę, a w tle lecą rapsy

[Hook]
Ból, uśmiech, syf, radość
Seks, lenistwo, tłum i stado
Lęk, wiedza, wiara, siła
Alko-poli-gamia, bijacz!
Ból, uśmiech, syf, radość
Seks, lenistwo, tłum i stado
Lęk, wiedza, wiara, siła
Alko, salto w nagraniach, przyjaźń!

[Verse 2]
Gosia, miewa więcej humorów niż Comedy Central
Ale jej wiedza, tego nie pomieści pendrive
O, wie jak pojechać piórem
W zeszłym systemie to od niej uczyłbym się jak kiwać cenzurę
Hubson rozkręci G-Funkiem nawet stypę
I chyba każdy w tym kraju pił z nim w któryś weekend
Nie znasz Hubcia? pewnie poznasz w dniu jutrzejszym
Życzę mu tylko więcej mixtapów i mniej Playstation
Karwel – to jego rapu słucham gdy chcę polskiego
I kiedy pora się najebać, LJ puścić trzeba,
Ma styl i zasady, przed nimi chylę czoło
Dziwne że jego demo nie przyniósł mi gołąb
Stasiak z drugiej strony zna cały Internet
I też dzięki niemu nie muszę się jebać z żadnym koncernem
Życie nas testowało wśród niemałych drak
Mes – twój Ben Affleck, Steezy – mój Cezary Żak,

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
Głośny, ma swój świat i piękna to kraina
Zna na pamięć dziwne filmy, na “stash” mówi Grażyna
Jest Smerfem Marudą, lecz jego bity to cudo
Najstarszy z nas wszystkich, trochę jakby sensei w judo
À propos Black Belt Greg, nie zgadniesz jaki ma pas
I jak to bywa z fighterami, chyba najspokojniejszy z nas
Zamienił kimono na gramofony, ciosy na tricki
Wydaje się być zadowolony, ja słyszę wyniki
Nikim innym nie zastąpisz eminencji szarej
Witek, w moim crew jak Drew Carey
Wśród szalonych socjopatów zna moc ordnungu
I może za reżyserię wpinać se medale w mundur
Na koniec ten punchline matki natury, (Kuba Knap)
Skurwiel dosłownie trzyma głowę w chmurach
Sam musi robić sobie bity, ma tak odrębny lot
Wysoko mierzy, ja w niego wierzę, to podniebny kot

[Hook]
