Ben Affleck Says He Didn’t Want Jennifer Lopez Relationship ‘On Social Media’ But Figured Out How to ‘Compromise’

Lopez often shares her admiration and love for Affleck during interviews, also making him the focus of This Is Me…Now: A Love Story, which premiered on Feb. 16, the same date as Lopez’s ninth studio album.

“We’re just two people with different kinds of approaches trying to learn to compromise,” Affleck continued.

In the documentary, Lopez acknowledged her husband’s possible discomfort with being the center of attention. “I don’t think [Ben] is very comfortable with me doing all of this,” she confessed. “But he loves me; he knows I’m an artist, and he’s gonna support me in every way he can because he knows you can’t stop me from making the music I made…he doesn’t want to stop me. But that doesn’t mean he’s comfortable being the muse.”

But the couple has made room for fun in their relationship, like both appearing in a Dunkin’ commercial that debuted during the Super Bowl LVIII, which also included Affleck’s film partner and best friend, Matt Damon.
