Over the course of the past several years, we’ve found that there are just some Hollywood couples that rule the red carpet like no other. Think of those classic, A-list stars whose romance has been just as storied and well-documented as their towering careers. Who comes to mind? Well, none other than Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.
These two really know how to work a red carpet, and they should — they’ve had years perfecting their smize, style, and poses for the cameras for more than two decades! “Bennifer” 1.0’s initial appearances began in the early aughts. The two were one of the most — if not, the most — talked about couples of the early 2000s. They attended premieres for films like Maid in Manhattan and Daredevil, along with an appearance at the 75th Academy Awards.
As we all know, though, the couple fizzled out by January 2004. We went through quite a draught without their star power on the red carpet. But, fast-forward to 2021, and our thirst has been quenched! From their red carpet debut at Venice Film Festival, to the New York City premiere of The Last Duel, “Bennifer” 2.0 has been showing off their love over the course of the last several months. They initially got back together in spring of 2021, but it wasn’t until September that they finally made their triumphant return to the red carpet.
This time around, the new and improved “Bennifer” is keeping certain aspects of their romance as private as possible. But as they continue to explore this more mature iteration of their relationship, let’s take a look back at some of their best red carpet photos to date!
