The Way Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck Hold Hands Is Actually A Big Deal
A body language expert weighs in on whether they'll last this time around. The aughts are back. And with it comes the revival of one of the 2000’s favorite couples: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck (a.k.a. Bennifer 2.0). It’s a been a while, so here’s a refresher: Jen and Ben first got together after filming Gigli in 2002 and what a time it was. J.Lo celebrated their love with her song "Dear Ben" on the This Is Me album, and he was in the "Jenny From The Block" music video, too. Then, they got engaged later that year. But, just days before the epic nuptials were supposed to happen, they called it off. Soon after, they ended their relationship altogether. Since then, each has gotten married, had kids, and gotten divorced. Fast forward to 2021, and J.Lo almost married Alex Rodriguez, while Ben dated Ana de Armas. Following their respective breakups, however, Jen and Ben rekindled their spark. Nearly 20 years since the power couple parted ways, no one saw Bennifer 2.0 coming, but like the best of trends, it’s been a hit. Apparently, the couple thinks so, too, because the PDA’s been on full display. (Hey, no one’s mad at it.) In fact, it’s a good thing, and that’s coming from someone who knows everything there is to know about public displays of affection, Karen Donaldson. The body language expert took a look at the couple’s moves since getting back together, and all signs point to smooth sailing on this 'ship. Thing is, they’ve called it quits before, so Donaldson analyzed their gestures to determine whether or not they’re in this for the long haul. Find all her conclusions ahead.
