Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez ‘shared a kiss in between sets’ at her Miami gym

Ben Affleck looks right at home as he steps out on the balcony to smoke a cigarette wearing a Green Monstah while enjoying his Miami getaway with Jennifer Lopez

Ben Affleck was photographed yet again on Jennifer Lopez’s balcony, and no, that’s not a euphemism. Ben has been in Miami since Sunday, and most of the photos we’ve seen of him have been paparazzi shots taken from the water, with Ben standing or sitting on the balcony of J.Lo’s waterfront Miami home. Ben goes out to the balcony for smoke breaks. He honestly looks like he’s in desperate need of some Dunkin Donuts coffee. Good news, Ben – I count eighteen Dunkins in the greater Miami area! Have her driver bring you some coffee and donuts!! Meanwhile, we have additional reporting around Ben and Jen’s Miami reunion, including their trip to the gym:

A source tells ET that the pair “shared a kiss in between sets” while working out together in Miami on Monday. Lopez, 51, and Affleck, 48, walked into Anatomy Fitness separately, but according to ET’s source, they “were not trying to hide their relationship” once inside.

“They went to do their workouts with separate trainers, but were not trying to hide their relationship by any means. They stayed close to each other while working out and were hugging, being playful together, and shared a kiss in between sets,” the source says. “It was clear to everyone that they have intense chemistry and were having fun together.”

According to the source, Affleck and Lopez “looked like two people who are super comfortable and familiar with each other, who are also in the honeymoon phase and in love. They were having a good time. Jennifer works out every day and it’s part of her routine and it seemed like Ben really wanted to be there too with her.”

[From ET]

Look at them, being cutesy in the gym. I never, ever feel like being cutesy at the gym. ET’s sources also claim that Jennifer is “so happy” that Ben came to Miami and:

“[Jennifer] has been telling her friends nice things about Ben and they’re having a lot of fun together,” the source adds. “They feel very comfortable with each other, but are also completely smitten, and it still feels like having a new crush after all these years. As of now, their plans are to stay in Miami through Memorial Day weekend.”

[From ET]

I’m excited. A whole week in Miami! Maybe on Memorial Day, he’ll appear on her Instagram! I can’t wait for their first couple-selfie, honestly. He didn’t seem to have many qualms about appearing on Ana de Armas’ IG, and he just has so much more history with Jennifer. I feel like that will be happening soon, the IG-Official status.

    The smoking! Ewww! Come on now.

    • LoonyTunes says:

      Yeah 🤢

    • Zut alors says:

      That’s what I don’t get. Jennifer is into clean living. How does she make allowances for his gross cigarettes? Kissing him would be so yucky to me. Her kids live with her so they’ve premusably met him since he’s at their house. Do you think his kids follow his whereabouts online?

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        They just hooked back up. Give her sometime to change his bad habits. He’s an addict so he might not be able to quit smoking. He can’t drink or gamble so he needs some kind of vice. Maybe she can switch him to vaping? Less dirty.

    • Abby says:

      It is so so gross! Why does he still do it? How can she stand to be around it?

      • Barbie Doll says:

        I remember on a interview in the early 90′s as a Fly Girl on In Living Color, she said she loved smoking cigars and it’s a part of her Latino Blood. Current rumors; her favorite cigars now are Padron. A-Rod is also very fond of cigars.

    • surf says:

      This is gonna end a la –Leaving Las Vegas

    • Barrett says:

      Marc Anthony smoked

  2. Jensies says:

    Ugh the cigarettes are so gross. Who finds this sexy.

  3. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    I cannot see this ending any way but horribly. Thank you, 90s gossip gods!

    • Annaloo. says:

      I need a quick refresher: why did they break up?

      • Renata says:

        Shortly before their wedding, Ben was shooting a movie in Canada. He went to a strip club with Christian Slater and Tara Reid where he reportedly went to a private room with one stripper and according to her, performed oral sex on her. The girl passed a polygraph for what it’s worth. Christian then had an after-party at his house where-in Ben took a different girl. She also says he “kissed her all over” hinting at oral sex. Other girls present backed the story. Ben couldn’t dispute he was there because there are obviously cameras but he disputed “having sex” with the girls, which was a very Bill Clinton denial. They never said there was PiV sex, they said his mouth was all over them lol. Plus Ben had completed rehab in 2001 so even being in that environment with alcohol and drugs was itself a major red flag.

        Post-script. I’ve always thought the biggest red flag around Ben is the fact that it was CHARLIE SHEEN that got him into rehab in 2001. If Charlie thinks you are a mess, I can’t imagine how bad he was.

    • Renata says:

      Do we praise or curse those 90s Celeb Gods for that set of pics at the bottom with Ben looking a misery in a white (see through!) tracksuit and white beanie? People say that Jlo improved his sartorial style but I think she made him look like an idiot. That tiny watch he is rocking again is yet another example. Just no.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, it will not end well. I think for her is a PR stunt in part to get back at D-Rod, j is for douche. She is just having fun and putting the screws to D-Rod and Ben will be gone within a year, at best.

      • Renata says:

        I’m sure that if Ben proposes next month, Jlo will say yes. And Ben might propose because he’s a big mess. He’ll just reason that she already has the ring and she wants marriage so much and what if “she was always the one” and think of all the endless attention this will get, and I can see him proposing. It’s all downhill from there.

  4. oliphant500 says:

    I know this is great Celeb gossip, but i’m also finding it weirdly depressing

    • Normades says:

      Same. This story is not bringing me the joy it’s giving to others and I’ve been into celeb gossip since wayyyyy back.

      Either this is PR or if it’s real Ben will f$ck it up.
      JLo needs to learn to love herself.

      • Jess says:

        This exactly. How can she let him back in after he practically left her days before their wedding. I could stay friends with someone after that but NEVER see them romantically again.

    • Bryn says:

      It makes me sad for jlo. There are so many men out there and she goes back to ben Affleck. Gross

    • GRUEY says:

      When I entered my thirties and started really working with people in their 40s and 50s, it dawned on me that middle age can get dark as fuck. I was like, huh, my teen angst and quarter life crises really has nothing on these family-exploder alcoholics. It’s one of the reasons I’m a year sober. The fun anecdotes of your 20s have a way of turning very sour when they are repeated as destructive patterns when you have real responsibilities and you’re far too old to know better.

      This relationship is depressing because it has all the hallmarks of fear-of-death and desperately retelling a story that used to be fun but is now just so sad it’s stale.

      Kids, THIS is why they say grow old gracefully. Cuz the alternative is yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes.

      • Normades says:

        @gruey I’m in my late 40s and really relate to your post. Middle age can be dark af.

        But you’re right that’s why this story is depressing. They are still either seeking relevance or reliving a regretted past but neither of them have broken their harmful habits/cycles. Call me cynical but this will not end well and I predict jlo will end up marrying someone else next year.

      • lunchcoma says:

        Congrats on your sobriety, GRUEY! I’m 40 and 4 years sober, and it’s been a very good change for me.

        I will say that there’s a lighter side of 40s and 50s, in that among the dark middle age stories, there are also people who have gotten some therapy or just settled into themselves and who are happier and more secure than they were when they were younger. Jen and Ben are…not those people.

      • GRUEY says:

        Thanks @normadie and @lunchcoma! And congrats on 4 years, that is amazing! I agree there is a much lighter side to middle age and it does involve therapy and exercise, learning to love 9:00 pm bed times, not to mention just chillin out and accepting that life isn’t a party and no one thinks you’re all that cute anymore. Not the easiest pill to swallow for these two, I’m sure!

      • Andrea says:

        Middle age is dark af. Seeing people have babies with a known felon twice because they are desperate for kids and take him back after he gives her two black eyes and a broken nose, when she makes a six figure salary. Seeing her pour herself double vodkas in the middle of the day while the kids are playing around her. I thought I had amusing stories from my friends in my 20s, now my 30s stories are grim. I am now 40 and honestly I hope my stories improve. Lol

      • Jaded says:

        @Gruey – I’m 68 and have loved my 40s, 50s and 60s. It was my 20s and 30s that were dark and awful as I was battling my way out of some bad family sh*t growing up and a couple of truly horrible relationships that killed my already damaged self-esteem. I eventually realized that my early traumas weren’t through any fault of my own and got a handle on how to develop my confidence and faith in myself. I’m in a very happy place with a lovely man so I do believe you’ll enjoy your middle and later years.

    • Cava24 says:

      They are A list by any measure, it’s such a bummer when people who don’t need to be thirsty are thirsty. I understand why people who have economic reasons to overshare do it, I just don’t get it when people who have reached the level that they don’t need to do it continue to do it. Success usually affords people some dignity. I miss missing people because they were underground between projects.

    • Myra says:

      I was enjoying it until I saw some really angry comments about her sex life/romantic choices. She is a 50+ years old woman who knows what she wants and what she is doing. If it’s just a summer fling, then they’re just adults enjoying themselves without a care in the world.

      That being said, I do have a big ‘but’ when it comes to Ben Affleck. He is a messy person in general. He self sabotages and inevitably hurts his partners along the way. All of them. JLo, as far as I know, doesn’t set out to hurt people.

    • Sue Denim says:

      same…something to do w the way women like JLo — and our culture — make it seem like now matter how talented, rich, beautiful, etc. you are, and have earned your way into being, you’re still somehow much better off w even the awfulest, loserest of dudes. Ugh, A-Rod? Affleck? Yuck. Anyone could do better than these guys… And why not celebrate being independent…? Especially after all we’ve learned — metoo, etc. — since these two were first an item.

    • Amando says:

      Same. No one should be celebrating someone getting involved with a troubled person like Ben.

  5. samipup says:

    Those poor tulips!

    • Chaine says:

      They look more bedraggled in each day’s paparazzi shots 😂 is no one changing the water in the vase?

      • Lena says:

        I think he’s using the tulips as his ashtray. I think those Ben stans above saying he looks good are confusing these recent pictures of his 2 day old beard, rumpled hair and beat looking face with the pictures from 17 years ago. I’ll give you all the benefit of doubt.

  6. Mina_Esq says:

    I hope we get to see them on a boat, Jenny From the Block music video style.

    • Ellie says:

      Or Gigli 2!

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      Me too! Come on Jen and Ben, give us some more. We’re waiting. I like them together, and hope this works out. Ben looks handsome, and is smoking on the balcony to be considerate. They are both messy and sexy, and neither one can be alone. This could be a good match if Ben will behave himself.

  7. milliemollie says:

    Lmao, now they have to leak to the tabloids that they kiss so people buy this showmance?!:D:D:D Man, that’s sad.

  8. Noki says:

    For such a health freak i guess Jlo doesnt try to push her lifestyle on others, because Marc Anthony is a chain smoker too.

  9. ReginaGeorge says:

    Going to the gym and still smoking cigs? Ok Ben.

    Anyway Benny boo-boo strikes me as the kind of man who LOVES the chase and will clean up and get all cute to woo a woman, but once he’s got ‘em, gets bored, turns into a slob and then goes back to drinking and gambling or whatever they fancy to get them out of the house and the relationship.

    The cycle will continue with Jen. But she’s too thirsty and desperate to care at this point. She wants to shake off the stench of being played by ARod and being seen as soo desirable. And on some level, I feel Ben is doing this cuz he felt stupid after being dumped by Ana and needs his ego massaged and Jen is the perfect idiot to do it.

    • pix says:

      I hate that you wrote this because it is all so true. You hit it all. (sigh) I was really hoping for a fairy tale gossip story where they live happily ever after. But Ben is such a colossal f-up that, really, it can end in no other way. Unless – she plans to dump his @ss and “marry herself”. She’ll do multiple interviews about how she loves herself too much to go back down that road. It would be a pretty decent payback to get back at him for his past humiliation.

      • ReginaGeorge says:

        I think Jen is the type to see being single and “marrying herself” as sad and pathetic. At this point, I don’t see her changing her ways or cultivating any new behaviors. She needs some therapy first.

      • Ashby says:

        Ben is a mess, but I think Jennifer Lopez is also a big mess herself.

        Her romantic life is a disaster, she really knows how to pick the douchebags and get married multiple times to some strange characters and date some odd ducks.

        Her picker is REALLY OFF.

        Jennifer seems very, very insecure that’s why she can’t be alone.

        Both could use a lot of therapy each on their own and as couple, if this new attempt at relationship is to have a chance!

  10. stormsmama says:

    Hes def also trolling Arod bc he’s wearing ALL his red sox shirts. I mean i know its baseball season, but, he’s going strong with the Sox shirts lol

    • Burpsy says:

      I came here to comment the same thing! Us Boston fans are a bitter, grudge-holding bunch. There’s no way those shirts are NOT intentional.

    • Carolnr says:

      @ Stormsmama
      I wonder if Ben will wear those Cuban T-shirts he wore when he was with Ana? Or did he throw them out with the trash like he threw( or ( had someone) throw away the cardboard cut- out of Ana ….

    • BK says:

      I’m a yankee fan but I hate A-douche so much that I’ve been LOLing at Ben’s obvious red sox trolling lol

  11. lunchcoma says:

    UGH. I hate (maybe leaning toward love-to-hate) this whole ridiculous fake relationship. They are both too famous for this, but they’re both so very thirsty.

    At least maybe this will put an end to Affleck’s tendency to portray the women in his life as the primary attention-seekers. Some of them are and some of them aren’t, but he clearly needs the attention.

    • Renata says:

      Yep. They now know the paps have a direct view of that balcony so why keep using it? And notice they never use it together? I bet they are saving that shot for their final day. A multi-millionaire couple that wants privacy would just get a more private mansion or go to a 5 star hotel

  12. Leanne says:

    Let’s just enjoy the ride for as long as it lasts

  13. chimes@midnight says:

    I mean, Ben going to the gym and looking pretty healthy (even if he is smoking) is better than Ben looking miserable, drunk and bloated or hung over. Even if it is just a showmance, it seems to be good for him so I’m not going be mad.

  14. RoyalBlue says:

    he looks like a dried up alcoholic to me. yuck.

    • Schnee says:

      Yes! He seriously dropped some weight in recent months, didn’t he?

      He still looked so good with Ana in January 2021. What happened in the mean time? I also just recently watched The Way Back, which was shot in 2018 – and he looks *good*. Real beefy and delicious and strong, great smile.

      Seeing him now all thin, with that 1-week-beard, stained shirts is such a turn off. He is with JLo for Christ’s sake! Put some effort into it, Ben.

  15. supersoft says:

    At least its age appropriate. Right?

    • lunchcoma says:

      He’s 100% chasing 25-year-olds on the side. I hope for her sake that she is too.

      • supersoft says:

        I feel sorry for her. This is going to hurt. :-/ They still make a cute couple though.

      • Schnee says:

        Yes, this is also the reason why I think these two are having no sex. I don’t think Ben gets it up for anyone over 35.

        I think they cuddle and kiss but I don’t think Ben is turned on by JLo. He does it because she got away and ‘dating’ her now is a power move for him.

      • Darla says:

        LOLLOL yeah, that’s it.

  16. Nev says:

    Cmon this is not sexy the whole thing.

  17. Size Does Matter says:

    Okay so this is completely 100% superficial and not in any way based on character or anything that really matters but Ben from Armageddon and Pearl Harbor is in my top 5 forever dongs (along with Joshua Jackson in anything other than Mighty Ducks, Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise, Leonardo DiCaprio in The Departed, and George Peppard in Home from the Hill).

    HOWEVER, now that I’ve seen a photo of his grocery store feet I may need to reconsider. Ugh feet are gross.

  18. diamond rottweiler says:

    I don’t think B.A. can function on Miami’s version of Dunkies. The life source is only in Boston! I can’t figure out why Dunkies only really tastes like Dunkies in Boston/Cambridge. Maybe the water? So, you know, he’ll have to leave soon. In this way alone I feel quite connected to him. Lol.

  19. Hello Kitty says:

    Where are these people’s children?? Where?? Full time trial attorney here who loves to travel. I can’t live without my 13 month old. Her name in Greek essentially means light of my life. So WHERE ARE THE KIDDDDDSSS??

    • Carolnr says:

      USWeekly is saying that Rodriguez ” had such a sweet connection with the twins that Lopez was reluctant to spring a new special someone in her life on them right away.” I think their children got very close. (They were together for 4 yrs.) The video of Jennifer L.’s daughter crying was heartbreaking! I do not see Ben’s children interacting with them like Alex’s, but I could be wrong….
      US Weekly is now also saying that Jen & Ben are full on dating now…so maybe the paps will get some pics of them together, like side by side….

      • Lena says:

        That was a weird (and exploitive) choice of JLo to post her child crying about her breakup on an Instagram story. I think she lives her drama filled life like she’s in a reality show and he needs to have everybody look at him at all times. I hope they keep their kids far away from this circus but they both don’t have a lot of restraint so I’m not hopeful. Whatever happened to people waiting until a relationship stood the test of time before introducing the kids? Or is that just for plebeians like us?

      • Jayna says:

        Heartbreaking? Are you kidding me? @Lena’s post was spot on. “That was a weird (and exploitative) choice of JLo to post her child crying about her breakup on an Instagram story.”

        I am sure her kids are reeling and sad about this breakup. But J-Lo using her child like that ? She should be ashamed of herself.

  20. Jaded says:

    Is he never without a cigarette?! Can you imagine what his breath and hands smell like? EEWWWWW. Heavy smokers literally exude the stink of stale cigarettes out of every pore and it clings to their clothing. THAT is NOT sexy.

    • Jayna says:

      He’s an alcoholic and abuser of prescription pills (at least in the past). As an addictive person, he probably clings to that one vice even more when he’s clean and sober.

  21. intheknow says:

    I an on and off JLO fan. I like the her attitude about men, love and life. I wish I had it in me to move on so quickly instead of wallowing for months/years. Good for her. And who cares if this doesn’t last for her and Ben, she’ll move on and move on quickly. I say good for her. I admire women who can do that.

  22. KatC says:

    Does anyone else remember reading that Damon “kidnapped” him right before the wedding and took him somewhere to give him a serious come to Jesus talk about how she wasn’t right for him?

    That’s what I remember being a major contributing factor to him calling off the wedding

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      You mean it wasn’t him self sabatoging by sleeping with strippers? It was probably a combo of things.

  23. Natasha says:

    Where is P.Diddy?? He needs to jump in on this game!

  24. Tina says:

    Another summer, another Affleck romance. So predictable. Even most of the so-called “Exclusives” sound the same. As an educator who is off in the summer, it keeps me amused every year. First there was the nanny, then Shookus, then the playboy bunny, then Ana, and now JLo.

  25. Copy that says:

    let them have their time with it if they wanted too as long as not harming anyone. I see only jealousy nothing else with the haters. Unless there is something else not knowing about..
