Ben Affleck is back at it again! In a newly released photo, the Oscar-winning actor put his muscles on display while filming his latest film, ‘Hypnotic’.

Booked and busy! Ben Affleck, 49, looked incredible while on the set of his latest action-thriller film, Hypnotic on Oct.15. The film, which does not have a release date, recently began filming in Austin, Texas.

In the shot, which you can see below, you can’t help but notice Ben’s muscles. The Oscar-winning actor was photographed wearing a light gray sweater with blue jeans and low-key black shoes. He simply kept it casual but looked amazing.

Although the Argo director has been working hard with back-to-back films, he doesn’t let his grueling work schedule keep him from spending time with his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, 52. Since reuniting, they have been inseparable, and fans are absolutely living for Bennifer 2.0.

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez’s Timeline: From Engagement To Split & Reunion 17 Years Later




Their chemistry is undeniable and comes as no surprise as they were engaged 17 years ago. They’ve even been spending time as one big happy family, including their children. On Sept. 18 the lovebirds were spotted at Cinespia’s outdoor movie night in Los Angeles with four of their kids in tow: Jen’s twins Max and Emme, 13, who she shares with Marc Anthony. Ben’s daughters Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, who he shares with actress Jennifer Garner, were also in attendance. Jennifer looked so smitten as she snuggled up to Ben.

This isn’t the first time the pair has put their affection on full display. On Sept. 26, the two enjoyed some much-needed time together, just the two of them, and strolled around Central Park in New York City. The couple proved they only had eyes for each other during the steamy meet-up as they packed on the PDA for the outing.

The A-list couple clearly can’t keep their hands to themselves. Ben recently gushed toExtra TV, of his rekindled flame while at “The Tender Bar” premiere on Sunday, October 3. “I’m very happy. It is a very happy time in my life. Life is good,” the actor stated. We can only imagine he’s alluding to reconnecting with J.Lo as they have been inseparable ever since going public for round two.

Who is Madonna’s latest lover? Here we find out about the pop icon’s boyfriend, Ahlamalik Williams, and traverse the epic story of her past relationships here!

Madonna, 63, is a woman of the world. As such, the “Queen of Pop” has had many relationships, including two ex-husbands and numerous lovers. Ever since her star took off in the early ’80s, she’s enjoyed a series of lovers, flings, long-term relationships, and marriages, and often with a star-studded cast of men. Now, Madonna is dating her backup dancer, Ahlamalik Williams, but she’s definitely learned a lot before her two-plus-year relationship with the 26-year-old.

In 2004, the famed singer opened up to Oprah magazine about her outlook on love. “I’ve learned to make it work for me. I’ve taken that longing, that searching, that yearning for answers, and I’ve turned it out to the world,” she said at the time. “That’s one reason I’m as insatiable for knowledge as I am. I’m looking to fill myself up.”

Learn all about Madonna’s most recent flame and details on her past loves here! It’s a long list, but one definitely worth diving into!

Who Is Ahlamalik Williams?

A post shared by Madonna (@madgeluv)

Many have pointed out that Ahlamalik Williams, Madonna’s backup dancer, is almost 40 years her junior, but the “Vogue” singer can’t seem to be bothered by what others think, as the two have remained a pair since 2018. Born in Sacramento, California, Ahlamalik is a professional dancer and choreographer who’s worked on various shows, including Madonna’s 2019 Madame X tour. The two aren’t super public with their relationship, although Madonna shared an intimate video of the two to her Instagram in March 2021 with them making out!

Brahim Zaibat, 35, joins a list of young models and backup dancers with whom Madonna shared intimacy, but he’s perhaps the one Madonna has dated the longest so far. Born in 1986 in Lyon, France, Brahim is a dancer and choreographer of Algerian origin and was linked to the singer from 2010 to 2013. Madonna first met the dancer when he was chosen to dance for promoting her Material Girl Collection clothing line at Macy’s in Sept. 2010 and he went on to tour with her in her MDNA world tour in 2012. Although the couple broke up in December 2013, they made a memorable public appearance together at the 2013 Met Gala.

Another in Madonna’s string of what several outlets called “toyboy” lovers, Jesus Luz, 34, is a Brazilian model Madonna dated from around 2008 to 2010. The former couple met at a W magazine photoshoot in 2008 and quickly began a romance shortly after her divorce from Guy Ritchie was finalized. According to the Daily Mail, the “Material Girl” singer was said to have been “on edge” when she visited Jesus’ mother, hairdresser Cristiane Regina da Silva, who is 14 years her junior, while visiting Rio de Janeiro, due to the mother not approving of the relationship.

According to a source who spoke with the Chicago Sun-Times, ‘It was not only totally amicable, but it was Luz who initiated the split,” adding that the pair didn’t have many mutual interests that bonded them.

Although short-lived, Madonna and former New York Yankees star, Alex Rodriguez, 46, were rumored to have briefly dated in 2008. In December 2020, Alex’s ex, Jennifer Lopez, seemed to have confirmed those rumors as Andy Cohen pressed her on his Radio Andy show about dressing up as Madonna for Halloween since her then-fiancé “dated Madonna for two seconds.” Jennifer laughed and then replied, “No. I mean, it was so long ago.”

Perhaps one of Madonna’s well-known suitors is film director Guy Ritchie, 53, to whom she was married for eight years between 2000-2008. The former couple reportedly met at the home of Trudie Styler (musician Sting‘s wife) in 1999 at a dinner party. After Trudie played matchmaker with the pair, they quickly fell in love and the “Like a Virgin” singer gave up life in the U.S. to live in England and start a family with her beau. Madonna shares her son, Rocco, 21, with Guy and the former couple also adopted David Banda, 15, while she funded an orphanage in Malawi.

“[I was] certainly asking a kind of existential question that I think people ask when they’ve been married that long: what is the perfect love?’” Madonna told the Daily Mail after her divorce. “Because when you start off, everything’s great and lovely, and the person you’ve married is flawless, and you’re flawless. Then time goes by, and you share a life, you have children, and there are cracks in the veneer. It’s not as romantic as it used to be. You think, ‘This isn’t what I thought it was going to be,’ and ‘How much am I willing to sacrifice?’”

Andy Bird 

During Madonna’s Ray of Light era, she briefly dated Andy Bird, a British executive who was chairman of Walt Disney International until 2018 and is now CEO of Pearson Education. Around 1997, the now executive was a wannabe screenwriter who met Madonna at a director friend’s Los Angeles dinner party and the two hit it off quickly.

Unfortunately, after things fizzled out, Madonna phoned Andy multiple times and left desperate voicemails, which ended up being obtained by the British press. “We have something special together, we love each other,” she stated, in a transcript of the tape published in the Daily Mail. “I’ve written a song called ‘Beautiful Stranger’ and it’s all about you. I hope you’ll hear it one day because I’ll never forget you or stop loving you.”

Madonna dated personal trainer Carlos Leon, 55, from 1994 to 1997 and the two share a daughter, Lourdes Leon, 24, together. Although the former couple ended things after three years, Carols noted that he still maintains a “great relationship” with the “Like a Virgin” singer. “There was a friendship and there still is a friendship,” Billy Bush Show in 2008. If she needs to talk to me I’m there and if I need to talk to her she’s there. That’s the way it goes. Parents can learn from us in that way. Any parents that stay friends, it’s really good for the children.”

Dennis Rodman

Perhaps both at the peak of their fame, Madonna and former Chicago Bulls basketball star Dennis Rodman, 60, were an item in 1994 for only two months. Although their relationship was short-lived, it was definitely wild and highly publicized. In his memoir, Bad As I Wanna Be, Dennis talked about he and Madonna’s sexual practices and also claimed that the “Hung Up” songstress wanted him to impregnate her. “Madonna talked all the time about having a baby. I think she wanted every bit of Dennis Rodman—marriage, kids, everything,” Vulture reported.

Dennis also shared that one time when he was gambling in Las Vegas, “I picked up the phone and Madonna was like, ‘I’m ovulating, I’m ovulating. Get your ass up here.’ So I left my chips on the table, flew five hours to New York and did my thing.” He added, “We got done and she was standing on her head in an attempt to promote conception—just like any girl trying to get pregnant. I flew back to Las Vegas and picked up my game where I left off.”

Tupac Shakur

Madonna and the late rapper Tupac Shakur were rumored to have dated in the ’90s, and Madonna confirmed the rumors on a 2015 appearance on Howard Stern‘s Sirius XM radio show in 2015. When the radio host pressed Madonna about her seemingly hostile interviews on David Letterman‘s late night show in the ’90s, she explained,  “I was mad at David Letterman and I said the f-word a lot. I was in a weird mood that day.” She continued, “I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing was he got me all riled up about life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta.” 

Rolling Stone also reported on a handwritten apology letter from the rapper to the pop star that went up for auction starting at $100,000. The letter, written about a year before the rapper was fatally shot, reveals him apologizing for not being “the kind of friend I know I am capable of being.” Tupac revealed that he felt uncomfortable being seen dating a white woman because he “would be letting down half of the people who made [him] what [he] thought [he] was.” 

Vanilla Ice

Madonna dated rapper Vanilla Ice, 53, in the early ’90s when he broke out with his smash hit, “Ice Ice Baby.” Although the pair were an item for eight months, the rapper broke things off with Madonna due to her controversial Sex book. “I broke up with her after she printed [the explicit book, “Sex”] because I was hurt to be an unwitting part of this slutty package,” the rapper told News of the World, according to Digital Spy. “We were in a relationship, yet it looked like she was screwing all these other people. I thought she was taking pictures and running around naked because she was like that. Then when the book came out I was so embarrassed and ashamed. It was a porno.”

Michael Jackson

The King and Queen of Pop were rumored to have been something of an item in the early ’90s, and Madonna claimed that the late Michael Jackson was the “best date ever” after they showed up together to the 1991 Academy Awards. Although the two were never public or serious about being linked, she did admit in a 2016 episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden that she and the “Thriller” singer at least kissed. According to Madonna, she made the first move and offered Michael some chardonnay which apparently “worked wonders.”

Warren Beatty

Movie star Warren Beatty, 84, and Madonna got heated both on and off screen in 1991 after co-starring in his comic book movie Dick Tracy. In the flick, Madonna played the sexy lounge singer, Breathless Mahoney, and her sultry ways ended up seducing the actor-director off set as well. “She’s a huge personality, diligent and disciplined and a spectacular dancer and performer,” Warren said of the singer in 2016 to People. “She’s a phenomenon.” The two ended up splitting due to their conflicting views of living in the public eye, as fans could witness in her documentary at the time, Truth or Dare, which Warren did not want to be a part of at first.

“When we were going [out] and she was making the documentary Truth or Dare, I said, ‘I don’t want to be in it.’ And she said, ‘Why would I want you in it?’” But Warren ended up conceding: “I said if I can have approval, I don’t want to inhibit you.”

Madonna dated the late John F. Kennedy Jr. for six months in the ’80s and was reportedly not a big hit with the political heir’s mother, Jackie Kennedy. Apparently the heiress didn’t love Madonna’s adoption of Catholic imagery into her style and image and didn’t approve of her son dating the “Like a Prayer” singer. The Kennedy Heirs, biographer J. Randy Taraborrell also noted that Madonna actually spoke of John’s temper to her friends, saying that he frightened her more than her ex-husband, Sean Penn.

“Whereas Sean would act out, perhaps give a photographer a body shot just to vent, somehow John’s way seemed more personal,” the biographer wrote, per InStyle. “Madonna said that he would get up in her face, maybe an inch away, and scream at her at the top of his lungs when they were in a fight,”

Sean Penn

Actor Sean Penn, 61, met Madonna on the set of her “Material Girl” music video, and the two were married from 1985 to 1989 after an illustrious and often tumultuous relationship. People magazine reported in 1987 about Sean’s unpredictable behavior that led to his issues with Madonna and the ultimate dissolution of their marriage. The outlet cited a 1986 incident when Sean attacked songwriter David Wolinski at a nightclub after he thought David had kissed Madonna. “The marriage had been undergoing stress all the time, but this was the first major stress, the first really traumatic episode for [Madonna],” a source told the magazine at the time. “Wolinski was someone she knew, and it really shook her up.”

In 2017, Madonna responded to rumors that Penn was abusive toward her during their marriage. “I am aware of the allegations that have surfaced over the years accusing Sean of incidents of physical assault and abuse against me,” she said at the time, according to The Daily Beast. “Specifically, I am aware of the allegations concerning an alleged incident that occurred in June 1987, whereby (according to tabloid reports), Sean allegedly struck me with ‘a baseball bat.’ I know the allegations in those and other reports to be completely outrageous, malicious, reckless, and false.”

Jean-Michel Basquiat 

In her early New York City club scene days, it was only in the stars that Madonna would be linked to then-rising artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The pair enjoyed a brief affair between 1982-83, during the time when both were on the brink of international stardom — her as a definitive American pop star and him as a wunderkind of the neo-expressionist movement of the downtown SoHo scene. During an interview with Howard Stern, Madonna shared, “I remember getting up in the middle of the night and he wouldn’t be in bed lying next to me; he’d be standing, painting, at four in the morning, this close to the canvas, in a trance. I was blown away by that, that he worked when he felt moved.”

Marc Anthony shares six children with former partners, including twins Emme and Max with Jennifer Lopez. Here’s what to know about the singer’s children.

Marc Anthony, real name Marco Muñiz, 53, is an award-winning singer-songwriter known for hit songs like “Vivir Mi Vida” and “Flor Pálida.” While he is a recipient of three Grammys and six Latin Grammys, among other accolades, to his children, the artist is simply dad. He is a father to six children, whom he shares with previous partners: twins Emme and Max, both 13, with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez; sons Cristian, 20, and Ryan, 18, with ex-wife Dayanara Torres; and daughter Ariana, 27, and son Chase, 25, with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado.

Who are the singer-songwriter’s children? While twins Emme and Max are in the public eye due to their famous mom, not too much else is known about their step-siblings. Below, what to know about Marc’s six children.

Emme Muñiz

Emme, born Emme Maribel Muñiz, is one of the two children that Marc shares with ex-wife J.Lo. The two were previously married between 2004 and 2014. Born on February 22, 2008 in Long Island, New York, Emme is perhaps one of the singer’s most well-known children, having made several red carpet appearances alongside her famous parents. Don’t be surprised if she follows in her parents’ footsteps as singers: Emme famously took the stage during her mom’s 2020 Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira in February 2020 and participated in a mashup of “Let’s Get Loud” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” alongside other young singers. No one was more proud than dad Marc, who shared a photo of his daughter onstage on Instagram and wrote, “Emme Daddy is so proud of you. You are my ❤ and I am forever yours.”

Max Muñiz

Max, born Maximilian David Muñiz, is Marc’s second child with ex-wife J.Lo and twin of sister Emme. Similarly born on February 22, 2008 in Long Island, New York, Max is relatively more low key than his sister, but he has made several public appearances with his famous parents in the past, including his dad’s Valentine’s Day show in New York in 2009 and the set of American Idol when his mom served as a judge in 2011. Despite his young age, Max is already an activist in the making. While on the cover of the February 2021 issue of Elle, J.Lo revealed that her son emboldened her to use her platform for social change amid the Black Lives Matter movement. “He wanted me to make sure I realized that I had power and that I should use it,” J.Lo said. “I thought that was very insightful. It was one of those parenting moments when you’re like, ‘Oh, maybe I’m raising a conscientious, kind, loving kid here.’”

Ariana Anthony

Marc shares daughter Ariana, his firstborn, with former girlfriend Debbie Rosado, a police officer from Puerto Rico. The two previously dated in the 1990s. Not too much is known about Ariana, but she does follow in her father’s footsteps with a career in the arts. Ariana is an actress, and according to her IMDb page, she has starred in the TV series South Beach, a drama that follows two best friends who leave their lives in Brooklyn, New York behind and move to South Beach, Miami. Marc’s oldest child leads a fairly private life, so not too much else is known about her.

Cristian Muñiz

Cristian, born Cristian Marcus Muñiz, is one of two sons that Marc shares with ex-wife Dayanara Torres, a singer, actress, and winner of the 1993 Miss Universe beauty pageant. The two were previously married between 2000 and 2004. Born on February 5, 2001, Cristian studies art and design in New York, according to Hola! Judging from his Instagram, Cristian is an excellent artist. He has created digital renderings of Marvel characters, including Dr. Strange and Carnage from Venom. He’s always a big fan of Disney+ series The Mandalorian and its breakout character Baby Yoda, having shared a series of images that feature the little guy.

Ryan Muñiz

Ryan, born Ryan Adrian Muñiz, is Marc’s second child with Dayanara. Born on August 16, 2003, Ryan is relatively more low key than his brother. It’s unclear if he’s on social media, but his proud mom would often share photos and videos of him. In one particular birthday homage last year, Dayanara shared a clip of Ryan’s many talents, including playing the drums and guitar, singing (like his famous father), and enjoying a bunch of sports, like soccer, football, baseball, snowboarding, and motorbiking. The kid has practically done it all. The proud mom called her son talented in her hashtags, and that much is apparent.

Chase Muñiz

Marc shares son Chase, born Alex “Chase” Muñiz, with former girlfriend Debbie. Born on June 5, 1995, Chase was adopted by Marc and Debbie, according to Hola! Unlike much of his well-known siblings, Chase lives a low key life, meaning there isn’t much known about him publicly. He appears to have a bond with his step-siblings, though. While Chase does not appear to be on social media, his former stepmom J.Lo once shared a rare snapshot of him with his dad and five other siblings on Instagram, as seen above. The sweet photo came after the passing of Marc’s mother Guillermina Quiñones in 2017. The singer wrote that her ex-husband was “surrounded by love” amid the sad loss.

Samuel was rocking his longer blonde hair as he carried and cream-and-navy blue shoulder bag, perhaps with some goodies.

Jennifer Garner enjoyed an afternoon with her 9-year-old son Samuel Affleck. The 13 Going On 30 actress sweetly held her youngest child’s hand as they stopped by a Farmer’s Market in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles on Sunday, Oct. 10. Samuel could be seen holding onto a cream and navy blue colored tote bag for the excursion, perhaps to load up on some fresh baked goodies and other items from the outdoor market.

The 9-year-old was sporting his longer blonde hair and opted to keep his face covered with an orange printed face mask. He matched his mom’s navy blue Patagonia zip-up with his own navy blue t-shirt, which he sported with a cozy pair of green sweatpants. Jennifer also opted for an athleisure vibe, rocking a camo printed pair of leggings and black sneakers. The West Virginia native threw her brunette locks into a high ponytail, also adding a face mask and a black pair of sunglasses.

At one point, she pulled out a turquoise chevron quilted Chanel change purse to buy fresh vegetables from a stand. Jennifer kept the pricey accessory in her hand as she made her way back to her vehicle, also holding onto a filled tote and plastic bag with purchased items.

Jennifer Garner has stepped out for a day of family bonding with her nine-year-old son Samuel and 15-year-old daughter Violet. The trio were photographed venturing away from their usual neighborhood of Brentwood, and visited a friend’s home in Santa Monica on October 9. The two siblings twinned in plaid flannel shirts, while their A-list mom cut a sporty figure in a pair of blue leggings, a matching blue jacket, and dark trainers.

She slicked her brunette tresses back into a ponytail, and donned a pair of dark sunglasses. Little Sam rocked a black graphic tee with green pants, completing the look with blue sneakers and a pale pink protective face mask. His older sister’s outfit wasn’t fully visible, however it’s clear she was twinning with her bro in a check-print flannel button down.

It comes less than two months after the teenager was spotted with her dad Ben Affleck at a driving school. The Good Will Hunting star, 49, co-parents his kids Sam, Violet, and Seraphina, 12, with ex Jen, and was spotted hugging his eldest daughter on the August 21 outing. He supportively hugged her goodbye and gave her a kiss on the head as he dropped her off for the driving lesson.

All five of their children followed behind them as they exited a Range Rover, with each of them looking just as stylish as their parents! The family outing came one day after the brood attended the Los Angeles production of the hit Broadway show Hamilton. A video obtained by TMZ showed the couple kissing as the final curtain went down. A fellow audience member told the outlet that the couple and their kids walked in as the lights went down so as not to be recognized, and Ben had his arms wrapped around J.Lo after the show as they waited to exit the theatre.

“All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them,” Ben told the publication. “I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is.”

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez’s Timeline: From Engagement To Split & Reunion 17 Years Later




Just last week, Ben and J.Lo were spotted in her hometown of New York City where they enjoyed some alone time together! The couple looked so in love as they held hands for a romantic Central Park stroll, laughing and smiling for the cameras. At one point, the “Dear Ben” singer and Pearl Harbour actor stopped to share a steamy sidewalk kiss, clearly not shy about showing some PDA.

The couple took a major step forward in their relationship by going red carpet official at the Venice Film Festival in September! Following the epic appearance, Ben opened up one of the things he still loves about Jennifer. “All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them,” Ben told AdWeek on Sept. 20. “I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is.”

Jennifer Lopez has stepped out in a blue sweater adorned with a Playboy bunny, while heading to Ben Affleck’s home with kids Max and Emme in tow.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, cut a casual figure while out and about in Los Angeles with twins Max and Emme, 13. The trio were spotted arriving at Ben Affleck‘s home in Brentwood before heading to breakfast. Jen rocked a blue sweater featuring the word ‘Playboy’ accompanied by the Playboy Bunny. She also donned jeans, white sneakers and oversized hoop earrings, as she carried a cream tote.

Twin brother Max matched his mom and sister in jeans and a blue leather bomber jacket. The outing came less than two weeks after Ben opened up about the rekindled Bennifer 2.0 romance in interview with AdWeek published September 19. As fans would know, the A-listers got back together in May 2021 after breaking off their engagement in the early 2000s.

“All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them,” Ben told the outlet. “I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is.”

The Good Will Hunting actor continued, “[She’s] inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country.” Ben said of his beautiful girlfriend, “That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.”

The duo have been practically inseparable since they got back together this year. They’ve been spotted on multiple vacations and trips together, as well as some family outings with Jen’s twins whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Ben’s children Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 8, whom he shares with ex Jennifer Garner.

Just call her J.Glow. Jennifer Lopez glows in behind-the-scenes snapshots from her Coach campaign.

J.Lo is not the only famous face Coach has tapped for its fall campaign. Megan Thee Stallion, Michael B. Jordan, and Jeremy Lin also star, modeling cozy fits for the luxury brand. For Jennifer’s photoshoot, Coach released a coinciding segment on Friday that featured the star interviewing herself(s). Jennifer interviews J.Lo (and likewise) for the delightful piece.

“She’s had a lot of interviews in her life, but she’s never been interviewed by this person before,” Coach captioned the Instagram clip (seen below). The “duo” grilled each other on a series of topics, including Jennifer’s favorite song she has ever recorded and, of course, her infamous bling cups.

“First question: tell me you’re from the Bronx without telling me you’re from the Bronx,” Jennifer asked J.Lo, in which she responded by giving the finger with both hands. She also inquired about how many bling cups she actually had, to which J.Lo responded, “You don’t wanna know.” During the interview, Jennifer also revealed that she had a new album on the way, slated for a Valentine’s Day 2022 debut.

“I’ve just recorded a new album that is a new sound for me,” she said. A Valentine’s Day album debut certainly sounds romantic. On the topic of romance, the singer and her boyfriend Ben Affleck appear to be going strong after reconciling in May following their 2004 split. A source previously told HollywoodLife that the relationship is “much different this time around.”

“It’s already much different this time around and they both seem very happy,” the source said. “They’re both giving this relationship another very solid try and they’ve both made it clear they’re not taking any BS and taking this seriously.” In September, Bennifer 2.0 made their red carpet debut at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of The Last Duel, which Ben stars in with pal Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, and Adam Driver.

It also comes around a month since she was last seen with John. They were in New York in late Aug. and tried to keep their outing private by not paying attention to cameras.

When Jennifer’s not spending time with John, she’s being a full-time mom to the three kids she shares with Ben, including Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9. She was seen taking Samuel on a sweet lunch date just three weeks ago and two seemed to have a great time. They held hands while walking around Brentwood Country Mart as the end of summer sun was shining above them.

“All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them,” Ben told the publication. “I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is.”

Ben’s kind words about J.Lo come less than week after the together-again couple stole the show on the red carpet of the Met Gala. While J.Lo initially walked the carpet solo, Ben caught up with the superstar and the two shared a romantic smooch while wearing masks in front of photographers. The outing was actually Bennifer’s Met Gala debut, as the couple never went to the star-studded event together two decades ago.

Since they got back together, Ben has been nearly inseparable from J.Lo. The beloved couple have enjoyed a plethora of vacations and trips together, as well as some family outings with Jen’s kids Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Ben’s children Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 8, whom he shares with ex Jennifer Garner.

Ben and Jen first got together in July 2002, and were set to be married on September 14, 2003. However, the two called off the nuptials and cited intense media scrutiny attention around their scheduled Labor Day wedding. After a brief split, Ben and J.Lo reconciled — only to break-up for good in January 2004.

Ben Affleck took his two daughters for a sweet treat! The actor enjoyed his ice cream in a cone while Seraphina and Violet opted for cups.

Ben Affleck is the best dad ever! The 49-year-old was spotted in the Brentwood area with his girls Violet Affleck, 15, and Seraphina Affleck, 12, enjoying ice cream in a waffle cone on Friday, Sept. 17. Violet and Seraphina also enjoyed a cool treat, opting to keep theirs in easy (and less messy) cups. Ben looked low key and relaxed as he sported a face mask and aviator sunglasses, along with his favorite blue-and-red plaid shirt.

The flannel button down has been sported by the Oscar winner numerous times over the years, and has even inserted itself into the “Bennifer” zeitgeist: Ben’s girlfriend (and notably, former fiancée) Jennifer Lopez, 52, also showed some love for the shirt when she sported it on a private flight to Los Angeles. Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed the oversized item on the “Dear Ben” singer, which she threw over a crop top and white sweatpants, as she descended down the plane’s staircase on June 11 with her kids Max and Emme, 13, in tow.

For his family outing, Ben threw the fall-ready item on with a pair of black jeans and white-and-cream colored sneakers. Violet and Seraphina were also casually dressed, with the 15-year-old — who is the spitting image of her mom Jennifer Garner, 49 — rocking a magenta colored dress and camel leather wedges. Seraphina showed her style with a pair of bright green Crocs, ribbed sweatpants from Alo Yoga, and a black sweatshirt bearing a “W.”

Hot off their Euro trip, the two touched down in NYC where they also appeared at the Met Gala together. Jennifer totally embodied the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” theme was she sported classic American designer Ralph Lauren, who designed a custom western inspired look for her (complete with a hat). Nodding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple exchanged a masked kiss on the red carpet before heading into the glamorous soirée.

The day after, Ben also accompanied Jen to her home borough of The Bronx were she showed her support for a local Latina bookstore under her new philanthrophic venture Limitless Labs.

It seems everyone is obsessed with the photos of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez making their red carpet debut — even his ex, Gwyneth Paltrow. See her comment!

Gwyneth Paltrow has reacted to the stunning photos of her ex Ben Affleck, 49, making his rekindled relationship with Jennifer Lopez, 52, red carpet official! The pair stepped out at the Venice Film Festival on September 10 for the premiere of Ridley Scott‘s The Last Duel, which Ben co-wrote and starred in with childhood friend Matt Damon. The Goop founder, 48, who dated Ben in the early 2000s was among the thousands of people to comment on the snaps, writing, “Okay, this is cute,” under a photo posted by Jen’s stylist Mariel Haenn.

As fans would know, Gwyneth is practically the CEO of maintaining good relationships with her exes. She popularized the term “conscious uncoupling” after calling it quits from her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 44, with whom she’s stayed close with through the years.

Prior to her marriage, Gwyneth met Ben at a party in 1997, and they began dating later that year. The duo co-starred in the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love while very much in love themselves. Sadly, they had split by the time she won the Oscar for Best Actress for the acclaimed film in 1999, however she thanked her “friend” Ben in her acceptance speech. The pair rekindled their romance when they starred in the 2000 drama film Bounce, but ended things for good in late 2000.

Through the years, Gwyneth has hinted that Ben had issues that caused their breakup. In 2003, she told Diane Sawyer, “Ben makes life tough for himself. He’s got a lot of complication, and you know, he really is a great guy. So I hope he sorts himself out.” She went even further during a 2015 appearance on The Howard Stern Show, saying, “He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend,” though she added that he was “super intelligent and really, really talented.”

The scary incident happened at the Venice airport on Saturday, Sept. 11 after a male fan attempted to get close to Jennifer with a camera in hand. It’s unclear what the fans’ intentions were, however, he seemingly appeared to be getting a selfie. After the male got past their security, Ben immediately stepped in front of the fan as Jen moved behind her beau for safety — watch the video via the Daily Mail here.

The couple were holding hands throughout the entire ordeal. Ben could be heard saying “whoa, whoa, whoa,” during the brief moment before he gently pushed the man back. Security and two police officers then intervened to move the fan back against a fall as Bennifer continued their walk into the airport to presumably fly to New York City for the Met Gala on Monday, Sept. 13. Ben appeared to turn to look at J.Lo making sure she was okay before she said “bye” to the paparazzi outside.

Earlier in the day, the couple were spotted in the same outfits — a beige polka dot Dior dress for her and a dark navy shirt and pant pairing for him — as they left their hotel via water taxi. Ben and J.Lo shared a sweet kiss and laugh on the dock as the waited for their ride, once again embracing in a steamy lip lock as they prepared to leave Italy.

The pair were in town for the Venice Film Festival, where Ben attended the premiere for his film The Last Duel. Bennifer made their long awaited red carpet debut at the glam event, driving fans and photographers wild. Ben stepped out of the car first for a few seconds of solo photos before opening the door for his leading lady, who dazzled in a plunging white gown with crystal details. After sharing a quick snuggle and laugh, the pair posed up a storm as they walked up and down the carpet looking more fabulous than ever.

On September 10, the ’13 Going On 30′ actress was out and about teaching her kids a few simple life lessons in Brentwood. 

It’s all about family bonding time for Jennifer Garner49, who taught her youngest children, daughter Seraphina12, and son Samuel, 9, how to pump gas on September 10. The actress looked content as ever as she sweetly gave her children a step-by-step tutorial on how to pump their own gas at a local station in Brentwood. After all, they’ll be driving in no time! 

Jennifer, who shares both kids, plus daughter Violet, 15, with ex Ben Affleck, was dressed super casual in a navy sweater layered with a white undershirt and jeans. She completed her minimalistic fit with black sunglasses, sneakers, and had her brunette tresses pulled back for the outing.

Like mom, the children also opted for comfort for the outing. In the photos, the dotting mom was seen walking Samuel through the process, who shortly after handed the nozzle off to Seraphina so she could get in on the action.

While Jennifer and the kids were back in Brentwood, her ex-hubby Ben was in Venice, Italy with his lover, Jennifer Lopez, 52. The two appeared to be so in love as they packed on PDA while attending the premiere of his film The Last Duel at the Venice Film Festival.

The lovebirds walked the carpet together like they didn’t miss a beat in 18 years and looked like the ultimate glamour couple. J.Lo wore a thigh-high slit white dress with a low-cut plunging neckline. The silver detailing matched the silver heels she opted to wear for the occasion. The stunner looked absolutely gorgeous and toned as ever. Ben cleaned up nicely as well for the outing. Wearing a black tux, the Argo star couldn’t keep his eyes, and hands for that matter, off of his girlfriend as they posed up a storm and packed on the PDA for the cameras.

Since the revival of Bennifer, their romance has been non-stop. The couple have been spotted on vacation and trips together with their children, including J.Lo’s twins Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and the duo were even photographed house hunting together across Los Angeles in July. Furthermore, Ben was pictured looking at engagement rings at the Century City, California Tiffany’s alongside his mom Sam and son Samuel on Aug. 23. 

While the love birds may not be heading down the aisle at this time, it’s clear this hot and heavy romance has no signs of slowing down.

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck had fans going crazy as they showed major PDA on their first red carpet appearance since getting back together!

Ever since Jennifer Lopez, 52, and Ben Affleck, 49, got back together – the world has never been the same. The newly rekindled couple made their first red carpet appearance as a new couple at the Venice Film Festival on September 10. The lovebirds attended the premiere of Ben’s new film, The Last Duel, and they both looked absolutely amazing as they kissed each other on the red carpet.

J.Lo and Ben could not take their eyes off each other and when Ben walked out on the carpet alone, he smiled at the cameras before opening his car door to reveal Jennifer. Once the crowd saw they were together, the fans went wild and started cheering for them uncontrollably. Ben was smiling from ear to ear and started laughing because the reaction was overwhelming.

On the red carpet, Ben and Jen looked into each other’s eyes lovingly as they kissed on the lips. J.Lo rocked a skintight sleeveless white Georges Hobeika gown with a plunging scoop neckline that revealed ample cleavage. The neckline was lined with dazzling crystals and the skirt of the dress had a ruffle trim with a plunging slit on the side, revealing her toned legs.

J.Lo accessorized her angelic look with a pair of metallic silver platform heels and a bedazzled crystal clutch. Meanwhile, Ben looked as handsome as ever in a fitted black tuxedo and patent leather shoes. The couple has been in Venice together for the past week and everywhere they go, they can’t keep their hands off each other. We are seriously living for Ben and Jen and we love how happy they are together.

Rebel has had an action-packed long weekend, kicking things off with a trip to her favorite spot — Disneyland — on Friday, Sept. 3. The comedian looked incredible in a fitted pair of black leggings and a neon Mickey Mouse t-shirt, matching her two friends. Although she kept her face partially hidden behind a face mask, Rebel could be seen beaming as she made her way through the Happiest Place on Earth. The actress is well-known to love visiting the iconic theme park, even celebrating her milestone 40th birthday with a private dining experience in the New Orleans Square part of the park.

Rebel has been looking better than ever since her 60 Lb. weight loss following 2020, which she dubbed her “Year of Health.” She previously discussed how people “treated” her differently since slimming down. ““I think what’s been really interesting to me is how other people treat you,” Rebel said on The Morning Crew With Hughesy, Ed and Erin earlier this year. “Sometimes being bigger, people didn’t necessarily look twice at you. And now that I’m in a good shape, lie, people offer to carry my groceries to the car and hold doors open for you. I was like, ‘Is this what other people experienced all the time?’” she added.

Vin Diesel is out of office! The actor, real name Mark Sinclair, 54, enjoyed a family boat day with his longtime partner Paloma Jiménez and their three children Hania, 13, Pauline, 6, and Vincent, 11, in the Italian fishing village of Portofino this weekend. Vin looked comfortable casual in a tank top and shorts, while his model partner, 38, wore a black slip dress. All three kids opted for t-shirts and shorts and/or skirts to soak up the sun.

Vin and his family have been in Italy since last month. The fivesome started in Venice for Dolce & Gabbana’s three-day fashion. The Fast and Furious star’s partner and eldest daughter showed off their stylish sides when they stepped out in the Italian city at the end of August: Paloma wore a chic two-piece floral silk button-up and pant set in white, while Hania wore a printed off-the-shoulder dress.

The event showcased new haute couture and jewelry from the luxury brand while paying homage to Venice’s “artistic legacy and manufacturing legacy” against the backdrop of renowned landmarks, per its press release. It was a star-studded affair, too: Jennifer Lopez, Helen Mirren, Kourtney Kardashian (and Travis Barker), Heidi Klum, and Vanessa Bryant were a few of the attendees.

At the fashion show afterparties, Vin and Paloma caught up with some of their celebrity friends. Vanessa shared an iconic selfie that featured Vin, Kris Jenner, and Ciara on her Instagram last week. On Ciara’s own Instagram page, the singer shared a video of her and Vanessa partying it up with Vin, Paloma, and Jennifer Hudson in a boat (declaring the boat was “lit”) before connecting with other familiar faces at a soirée, including Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat.

As for Vin, the actor has also been documenting his Italian travels on his own Instagram. He recently shared a carousel of images (two of which feature Diddy) from the fashion show on September 1 and reflected on the “divine” trip. “Moments in life that remind us of the Divine are all around us, we simply need to recognize them… and be grateful,” Vin captioned. “Venice was filled with so many magical moments, ones that I hope to share with you.”

Mother-son bonding! Jennifer Garner and son Samuel stepped out for lunch in Los Angeles ahead of the long weekend.

Jennifer Garner stepped out for lunch with the sweetest date: son Samuel, 9. The actress, 49, enjoyed a lunch date at the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles ahead of the long weekend on Friday, Sept. 3. She and her youngest child with ex-husband Ben Affleck held hands for the outing.

The mom of three wore a relaxed t-shirt and jeans for the outing, while Samuel wore maroon sweatpants and a heather grey t-shirt. Jennifer also brought along a bright pink surgical face mask amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The 13 Going on 30 star also shares daughters Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, with her ex-husband.

The mother-son date comes amid reports that Jennifer’s children will soon meet John Miller following their reported recoupling. Us Weekly previously reported in May that the actress and her CEO boyfriend are “back on” after splitting early last year. Following their reunion, the outlet reported earlier this week that Jennifer’s three children are expected to meet John’s two daughters from a previous marriage soon.

Revealing that the two are “really going strong and getting more serious,” a source told the outlet: “They are spending a lot more time together. They have been keeping their kids separate from their relationship for a long time, but now plan to incorporate their kids more.” The reports come after the children have met Ben’s rekindled flame Jennifer Lopez and her twins, Max and Emme, both 13, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Ben and J.Lo, who resurrected Bennifer 1.0 in May after splitting in 2004, have spent time with each other’s children already, having gone to Universal Studios Hollywood and a showing of Broadway’s Hamilton together. A source previously told HL that the two are “dedicated” to making the relationship work — and that Ben is “protective” of her and the children. “Their connection is very real, and they’re dedicated to making this relationship work,” the source said, adding that J.Lo loves that Ben is “protective of her and the kids” when out in public. “Being with him feels like no time has passed.”

Ben Affleck has a special co-star in his new commercial for WynnBET — his on-again girlfriend Jennifer Lopez’s mother, Lupe Rodriguez!

Ben Affleck, 49, got a special someone to make a cameo appearance in the actor’s new commercial for WynnBET, a new mobile sports betting and iGamin app. So that special someone must be Jennifer Lopez, right? Well even though the rekindled couple is going strong again, J.Lo, 52, was nowhere to be seen in the commercial — but the woman who gave birth to her was! That’s right, J.Lo’s mother, Guadalupe “Lupe” Rodriguez, 75, briefly appears in the WynnBet commercial, which Ben both stars in and directed.

Lupe’s big break comes at around the 1:00 minute mark of the 2-and-a-half minute long video, which was released on Aug. 30. Lupe is hilariously cheering herself on at the slot machines at Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. “Come on, Lupe! You can do this girl,” she says aloud, adding, “Just like the slots in St. Louis.” Lupe’s comments are overheard by Ben, who is walking nearby her and says to himself, “St. Louis?” Moments later, Lupe has an expressive reaction to her slot machine, indicating that she may have just won big!

The commercial also features appearances from NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, actor Melvin Gregg, and other avid sports betters. Ben shared a snippet of a behind-the-scenes look at the commercial on Instagram, writing, “Here’s a look at the spot I directed to launch @wynnbet —a new sportsbook app that makes betting a team sport. Always fun teaming up with @Shaqand @melvingregg.”

The group was photographed on set at the time, and Mama Lopez could be seen standing around the slot machine as she enthusiastically put her arms out while chatting with a camera man and other film crew. Ben was also all-smiles as he sported a short sleeve black t-shirt while milling about the set.

As fans know, Ben has been nearly inseparable from J.Lo since the pair got back together in May 2021. Bennifer has basically been going basically full steam ahead and have enjoyed vacation and trips together with their children, including J.Lo’s twins Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. The duo were also photographed house hunting together across Los Angeles prior to jetting away to Europe to celebrate J.Lo’s 52nd birthday back in July.

Recently, Ben was photographed at Tiffany & Co. in Los Angeles with his mother Chris Anne Boldt and son Samuel, 9, browsing rings in their little signature Tiffany’s blue boxes. It still remains unclear who the Argo actor was shopping for, but he and J.Lo later returned to the Westfield Century City shopping center just one day later for yet another outing that they looked so loved up for.

Queen vibes! Jennifer Lopez arrived to D&G’s epic Venice soirée in an ensemble fit for royalty, right down to her sparkly tiara.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, just reminded the world why she’s as fashion icon. The “Jenny From The Block” singer arrived to Dolce & Gabbana’s epic gala in Venice, Italy on Saturday, Aug. 28 in a show stopping ensemble fit for royalty. J.Lo looked like a queen in a green silk floral cape over top a black baroque floral pant and bedazzled crystal crop top. She topped her pulled back hair with an epic tiara, finishing the look with a sparkly pair of platform jeweled sandals and a woven handbag.

The Wedding Planner actress took to Instagram to show off her ultra-glam look for the star-studded soirée, which was held in the middle of the iconic Piazza San Marco. Giving her best runway strut to Lady Gaga‘s “Babylon,” Jen was clearly excited as she let out a small shriek and laugh towards the end of the clip. “That Runway show glow,” she wrote, shouting out her makeup and skincare brand JLo Beauty (also used for her evening glam by makeup artist Mary Phillips). In another video shot by the Venice taxi stand, the Bronx native looked sensational as she showed off her look and gave the camera a smoldering stare.

Beau Ben Affleck, 49, didn’t appear to be in attendance — however, he was curiously photographed at the airport ahead of her private flight to Italy late last week. It’s unclear if the Oscar winner flew with her to Venice and decided not to attend the party, or perhaps was just dropping her off before heading back home.

She also sported a bejeweled bikini top and boxer shorts by the brand in her video for “Cambia El Paso.”

The doting mom also wore sunglasses and had her long locks tied back into a low ponytail while Emme showed off her short blue hair and glasses. The duo kept close while walking outside and at one point, Jennifer even held her arm out to hold onto her daughter.

Jennifer and Emme’s latest outing comes in the midst of the former’s headline-making romance with Ben Affleck, 49. She was seen holding hands with the hunk during an outing in L.A. on Aug. 24 and looked incredible.

It’s unclear if he was looking for something for Jennifer but the duo seem inseparable lately, so it definitely wouldn’t be surprising!

Jennifer and Ben were previously in a relationship from 2002 until 2004 and even became engaged. After more than 15 years, they rekindled their romance in May and have been spotted showing off PDA on numerous occasions. They’ve also been seen house hunting in the L.A. area so it looks like things are getting serious once again!

Alex Rodriguez’s fans are in a frenzy thanks to a new photo that shows A-Rod posing with the red Porsche that he bought former fiancée J.Lo two years ago.

Alex Rodriguez, 46, didn’t get to keep the girl, but he did get to keep the car. The ex-MLB star, as fans know, is no longer together with Jennifer Lopez, 52, and the singer has moved on with former fiancé Ben Affleck, 49. But A-Rod still had a big smile on his face in his latest Instagram photo, which showed the dad of two posing with…. the red Porsche 911 GTS he bought J.Lo in 2019! Yep, Alex apparently kept possession of the $146,000 vehicle that he purchased for the singer for her 50th birthday back in 2019 while they were still engaged, and he had no problem flaunting it on his Instagram page on Aug. 18 for his nearly 4 million followers to see.

In the photo, Alex looked dapper dressed in a suit and tie as he lightly sat on top of the Porsche. Behind the Porsche were two other vehicles, though neither of those were gifts to J.Lo like the red sports car was. A-Rod looked so delighted to be the owner of the Porsche, and he proudly (and sarcastically) captioned his post, “I’m super down to earth.”

Naturally, fans went crazy over A-Rod’s pic with the Porsche. His followers correctly pointed out that it is the same vehicle he bought J.Lo for her 50th in 2019, and they couldn’t help themselves from making that known in the comments section. “Savage. Posing with the car he bought J.Lo for her bday lmfao,” one fan said, while another wrote alongside a laughing emoji, “not jlos whip no more.” A few of A-Rod’s famous followers also got in on the action: Tamar Braxton jokingly commented, “Looks down to earth to me,” and retired baseball star Johnny Damon dropped a comment in which he called A-Rod a “boss.”

J.Lo received the speedy vehicle from her former fiancé when she turned 50 in July 2019. Alex spent roughly $146,000 on the Porsche in honor of the Hustler star’s milestone birthday, according to Page Six. They also celebrated her big day at the time with a massive party on Star Island in Miami, but beforehand, J.Lo reportedly went for a brief drive inside her new gift. “She took the car for a spin before the party with A-Rod and looked very excited,” a source told E! News at the time. “It came with a big gold bow on it and was delivered to their house,” the insider added.

Since their split earlier this year, J.Lo and A-Rod have been living very different lives. The “Jenny From The Block” songstress has been traveling around Europe and touring homes in Calif. with Ben, whom she was previously engaged to in the mid-2000s. Alex, meanwhile, appears to be doing well in the recent months, and even recently shared that he’s in a “great place“ in the wake of the highly-publicized breakup. “Whatever happened to me over the last year, I’m so grateful for it,” he told ET’s Kevin Frazier. “I’ve had five years of an incredible life and partnership, and also with my daughters, we learned so much.”

Ben’s latest outing with his mom and kids, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49, comes just days after celebrating his birthday. He was spotted hanging out with his kids while going to visit a family friend in Los Angeles on the special day and then later reportedly hung out with his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, 52, and her twins Max and Emme, both 13. The trio apparently had a “low key” weekend that was “what he wanted.”

“Jennifer had a cake for him,” a source told PEOPLE about Ben’s private celebration. “Ben is not one for big celebrations, so he thought it was perfect. It was exactly what he wanted.”

Ben’s birthday festivities with J.Lo doesn’t come as too much of a surprise considering the two have seemed inseparable since rekindling their years old flame earlier this year. They were previously engaged while being in a relationship from 2002-2004, when fans gave them their memorable nickname, “Bennifer.” He also spent her birthday with her last month.
