Ben Affleck proves his maturity and stays in touch with his ex Jennifer Lopez ... only as friends!
It takes a great woman like Jennifer Garner to share a gentleman like Ben Affleck with the world, Matt Damon, and a litter of exes like Jennifer Lopez, Gwenyth Paltrow and his high school sweetheart! This says a lot about their marriage and how they trust each other.
Affleck revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he keeps in touch with ex Jennifer Lopez through the ocassional email, but it's strictly friendly.
"I remember when she got American Idol," Lopez' ex said. "I said: 'This was really smart. Good luck.' I touch base. I respect her. I like her."
We like her too but mainly as his ex! He respects women a lot, and you can tell this through his communication with his exes. He's made peace with his past. You also can tell he is crazy in love with his wife, the other Jennifer.
Affleck, ever the romantic went on to say such beautiful things about his wife. "She truly is kind," he said of Garner. Garner makes Aflleck a better man, he explained.
"She doesn't have ill will for any person. She's not competitive with other people. She's not spiteful. It's one of those things where it becomes almost aggravating at times! Every time I go, 'F--- him!' I see in her face that she just thinks that's petty and small." She serves as a reminder for Affleck to always stay positive!
And to make his life even better, his film Argo may get a nod from the Oscars! This Hollywood hottie, who lives down the block from best friend Matt Damon, may stay in touch with those from his past, but is so happy and consumed with his present life. I think it proves his maturity and that his relationships are healthy. As for his relationship with Matt Damon, that might be where he gets unhealthy—he joked that seeing Damon a few times a week is a lot for two grown men.
