Jennifer Lopez: I turned Ben Affleck into a movie star
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck broke up years ago, but she still takes credit for his rise to fame.
The phenomenon known as Bennifer seems like such a distant memory. But one-half of the duo, Jennifer Lopez, still thinks about her relationship with Ben Affleck. In fact, Lopez told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she feels responsible for Ben Affleck turning from a mildly successful actor into the movie star he is today — all because of some fashion advice.
"I did kind of, like, say, 'You're a movie star, you should wear a suit. You should do this with your hair.' For sure," JLo explained. "He was into it! He didn't do anything he didn't want to do."
Lopez added, "He had some good moments, some good fashion moments when he was with me."
The singer has been busy all week — she performed for Good Morning America on Friday morning, June 20, just days after performing at the opening day of the World Cup in Brazil.
"It's electric inside that stadium on opening day. They cannot wait," she said. "It was just an amazing performance, and doing it with Pitbull, who is like my brother, we were just like two little kids [asking], 'What are we doing here?'"
Although Lopez finds herself alone again — she and boyfriend Casper Smart recently broke up — she said she is staying busy with work and her twins Max and Emme.
"It's always a juggling act. Every working mom out there knows what it's like," she said. "You know you put your kids first and everything kind of falls in line behind that, and you do the best you can."
