Ben Affleck addresses Jennifer Lopez's fame

Jennifer Lopez’s enormous fame seems to have quite a strong impression on her estranged husband Ben Affleck.

Ben got candid about Jennifer’s stardom in an interview that was filmed months ago, as per the Daily Mail,while the pair continues to live their lives separately during the divorce rumours.


The 51-year-old actor is in Los Angeles this week with the diva partying in Capri.

The Air actor shared one instance, in an interview with Kevin Hart for an episode from season four of his show Hart To Heart, when fans went “bananas” after spotting the Atlas star strolling with him through Times Square in New York City.

“We went somewhere with [Jennifer]—I can't remember because she's so famous, and she creates this—people love her, and she really represents something important to people,” Ben told Kevin.

“[To me,] people are like, ‘Hey, I like your movie,’ and then they're like ‘AAAHHHH! J-LO!’” he yelled. “It's amazing, you know what I mean?”

The actor shared further details.

“I think it was when we rolled through Times Square,” he continued.

“We get out of the car, we were going to a play, and I was like, ‘F*** it, babe, we're going to be late, we gotta walk a block and a half.’ [Lopez] was like, ‘Alright,’ she didn't say s***.”

“We get out with her, all the kids, through Times Square, and the s*** was like f****n' bananas,” Affleck noted.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ There was a lady, she was smoking weed, in a full purple skintight suit—she's a heavy lady—and she starts running backwards filming, going ‘-LO!!’”

He added, “Like a herald, that then gets everyone else, and then all the tourists come in.”

“Then we've got our five kids, it's me and Jen and what feels like hundreds of people, and they're all screaming.”
