Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck got pap’d as they strolled the streets of Capri

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck look head over heels in love during vacation in Capri, Italy

The Bennifer Summer continues!! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are not merely content to recreate their most iconic moments – Butt-Rubbing Szn 4 Eva – they also want to create new memories, new iconic moments. A Bennifer World Tour. For three days, Ben and Jen were on the yacht in the South of France and partying in St. Tropez. Now the yacht has taken them to Capri, where they went sight-seeing, posed for photos and did some shopping. TMZ noted how they seemed to be hamming it up for the paparazzi:

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are perfectly aligned and in step with one another as they continue their romantic Euro getaway to celebrate her birthday … and we mean that literally.

TMZ’s obtained footage of the couple strolling through the quaint alleyways of Capri Tuesday … where they seem to have landed after a pit stop in Saint-Tropez over the weekend. As you can see, they were hand-in-hand … with their team fully surrounding them.

They didn’t let that kill the mood though … Bennifer went about their business, taking in the sights and leisurely enjoying the city.

Anyhoo … eyewitnesses tell us it was quite the eventful day for them — apparently, they stopped for a bite at a place called Ristorante Faraglioni … but we’re told there didn’t seem to be a whole lot of eating. Our sources on the ground say it was mostly them hamming it up for paps.

We’re also told they popped into a jewelry store at one point … but it’s unclear what, if anything, they bought. After that … our sources say they hit up a vintage Chanel store. So, they’re definitely in vacation mode — shopping, chillin’ and soaking in the atmosphere.

[From TMZ]

One man’s “hamming it up for the paps” is another man’s love language. I think Ben and Jennifer both look relaxed and happy. They’re comfortable with the attention they’re getting and the chaos they’re ensuing. They are Leos, proud and tall.

Visually, they look great with each other right now too. Ben has easily lost 20 pounds in three months and he’s looking downright svelte. Did she put him on a diet??? LOL. Jen looks amazing too. I really want her straw tote. Versace, right? Her outfit is super-cute too.

    Oh the gossip gods are having mercy on this summer. Just *chefs kiss*

    • Dtab says:

      Thank God right…..we needed a good celebrity couple gasping for attention. Summer gossip is the best and all these pics are awesome

    • Sarn says:

      Here’s a tip for the ruse: maybe Ben should look AT Jen for believability.

  2. Ines says:

    They look great. I admire her dedication though: I could never go sightseeing on those (beautiful) shoes.

    • Darla says:

      I walked 5 miles in NYC on Sunday and in Birkenstocks and my feet were kind of torn up. I should have worn my sneakers of course. I have NO idea how women walk around in shoes like Jlo is wearing here. To me it’s like alien. I’m mystified. Also have no desire to even try it.

      I’d love to have her hat though!

      • rainbowkitty says:

        Darla, are you Canadian? I only ask because I also say “sneakers” rather than “tennis shoes, running shoes” and I’m told saying sneakers is a Canadian thing. LOL

      • Becks1 says:

        @rainbowkitty that’s funny, I use both (I’m american.) My sneakers are my sneakers – they may be Nike or New balances or whatever, but I don’t use them for exercise, they’re for walking around town, going to the zoo, etc, and then my “running shoes” are for running, even though they may be pretty much the same thing lol.

      • Darla says:

        No rainbow, but when I was growing up in the 70′s that’s what we always called them in my family. I know everyone says tennis shoes or kicks or running shoes nowadays. I guess I am just old, not Canadian! :)

      • TeamMeg says:

        I am American and say “sneakers”. I’m also old enough to remember when “running shoes” became a thing! Back then in the olden days (1970s) “tennis shoes” were a separate footwear category. They had a special, smoothish zig-zag tread, to not damage the courts. Sneakers were mostly PF Flyers, Keds and Converse.

        P.S. Love J-Lo’s sandals from the front – wondering if they have a heel?

      • Eleonor says:

        When I was younger I used to do that.
        Then I moved to much more comfy heels, and now (I am 40) I have zero f@#k and I wear comfy shoes.
        Nice and comfy.

      • Chrissyspo says:

        I’m a NYCer, born and raised and still here, we always called them sneakers. Or, kicks.

    • Myjobistoprincess says:

      I walked the whole island of Capri and let me tell you she could not have walked that far with those heels on. What a beaufitul place to rekindle love though, seriously.

      • Lena says:

        Come on people, those shoes weren’t for sightseeing Capri , they were for hamming it up for the paps, as TMZ called it. They are posing there in the doorway like it’s a photo shoot. Maybe it was. But when I went there I knew to not even wear flat sandals, much less heels. I mean, really, they are not there to sight see.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Exactly, Lena. This was a photoshoot for their latest project.

        Someone said the other day that JLo has never really been into the “celebrity thing” and I just laughed. She’s REALLY into the fame portion of her career, and she’s putting a LOT of effort into this roll out.

      • AlpineWitch says:

        You don’t really think they actually walked to the top of the island and then down, right? As I’ve done it 3 years ago and my feet were swollen in my sandals after 5 hrs of going up, right and left.

        Their bodyguards must have had a lot of ‘fun’ keeping away people from them in those tiny crowded alleyways both at the Marina and up to the town….

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Ines, That was my first thought!! How could JLo possibly walk the streets in those heeled sandals?

      @ TeamMeg, I am with you in the age department as well. We had “sneakers” as we grew up. Nothing fancy, not sport specific, just plain sneakers, which were worn on everyday occasions and not sport specific. Yes, I am a boomer. Plus we could only wear skirts in elementary school and had to wear shorts under our skirts for P.E. too!

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      I’d bet good money that once the shots were taken, she changed into other shoes (which are probably in that tote!), or they sat down in a cafe somewhere lol. You can NOT “stroll” in heels like that, esp. with a sisal footbed. It is NOT comfortable at all!

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      She should always style Ben. On his own he’s awful and how she curates his looks and probably diet really puts a spotlight on that.

      Also, they’re still so thirsty. Aren’t paps always following them anyway?

  3. Sierra says:

    That first picture looks like a photo shoot for a clothing company 😂

  4. Darla says:

    Ben’s body is so good lately, he is quite simply not drinking. Keep up with the fantasies that he is, but the pics tell the true story. He’s clean.

    • OriginalRose says:

      Yes I can’t believe I’m saying it but he looks better then he has in years. Genuinely really well and toned. I feel like he didn’t even look this good when he was preparing for batman and everyone was going on about his fitness regime etc

    • Mika says:

      I am also feeling hotter – just by basking in the glow. Bennifer is healing us all.

    • Chaine says:

      She’s easing him into a fashion makeover, that’s for sure. It’s working for him.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Chaine, yes, as he must look a certain way to be her arm candy. We are watching a real life make over happening with JLo and her man being presentable as her “man”. New and appropriate clothing that is well maintained, fitted/ironed/pristine, presentable daily hair ritual, and losing weight/toning up to be worthy of being her “man”. Let the make over commence, which started after the plans to “get together” were drawn out, in agreement, without any complaints or refusal.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Arod was really into HGH, and celebs are into it as well. The Hollywood Reporter even had an article titled, “Hollywood and Steroids: When A-List Actors Go the A-Rod Route”

        It wouldn’t surprise me if this group of people all uses the same strategy.

    • Green Desert says:

      Exactly, @Darla.

      Also, this Kara Brown tweet was really funny:


  5. Eenie Googles says:

    I think he’s wearing a girdle.

  6. PhD gossip says:

    In the DM photo series, it is clear there is a personal photographer along with them; not paparazzi shots at all.

    • PhD gossip says:

      *you see photo after photo of their personal photographer which means they have more than one along.

  7. Amy Bee says:

    I don’t care if they were hamming it up for the cameras. I’m just loving all the photos. As long as they’re willingly doing it I’m fine with this. And given TMZ’s track record it’s a bit rich for them to be talking about people hamming it up for the cameras.

  8. Zut Alors says:

    The one thing I love about JLo is, she never pushed the “I’m a mommy now, it’s all about my children” narrative. Yes, she’s messy at times but seems to always live her best life, critics be damned.

    • Lurker says:

      It would appear children be damned too… Like literally having a blended family with arod (who is such a tool, but they were seemingly a real family) to a whole new guy and his kids. Yeah it’s her life but cmon….

    • Meg says:

      I remember her being asked about aging after having her kids and she said 8 hours of sleep a night helped her a lot, which i thought was her way of saying she had a night nurse which i would totally do too if i had her resources. many i think would fear theyd be mommy shamed but i can imagine being better rested would benefit you and therefore your kids as you’d have more of yourself to give them

    • M says:

      They are saving this for the break-up, so she can say she’s focusing on her family and no one will go back and question this dramatic relationship rollout. Just wait and see, it’s textbook.

    • MagicMax says:

      Love that too! I like that, while she’s proud to be a mom and be in her 50s, she doesn’t let it keep her from expressing or presenting herself however she wants.

  9. jb says:

    the bag is Valentino, not Versace!!

    • Amy Bee says:

      Yes it is Valentino and it’s gorgeous

    • B says:

      I was going to say the same thing about how casually fabulous that tote is (her entire ensemble is even down to her lipstick shade, lol), and yes Valentino!

    • Profit margin for a straw bag with a logo is insane. Companies love that you love that bag. Same bag w/o logo is a fraction of the price. Worldwide.

  10. Woke says:

    Can we skip to the announcement of the project one of them has coming up ?
    I’m both loving it and being cynical about it.

    • Simone says:

      Ben’s new movie “The Last Duet” premieres at the Venice Film Festival in September. This is all so cynical & tacky. No famous/rich person who charters a yacht disembarks on Capri until the day tourists have left. If they want to lunch there, they go straight from their yacht to Il Riccio or one of the beach clubs.

      • Darla says:

        Aren’t they tourists themselves? I can’t feel mad about two famous people not waiting for the steerage to clear out before gracing a town with their presence.

  11. josephine says:

    She looks amazing – love her outfit. He needs pants without pleats and ones that don’t wrinkle — they make plenty of those these days! I do think it’s interesting that he never seems to be smiling in these pics. Maybe they’re just choosing pics in which he is not smiling? But he also seems a little remote/bummed out, especially compared to her. But I am appreciating all of the pretty pics!!

    • Southern Fried says:

      His facial expressions scream take me seriously, I’m the greatest male lead ever! So pretentious.

    • Chaine says:

      I’m taking his expression to be smug. As in he knows treated her like crap the first time around and that he has a horrible back tattoo that she hates but she still took him back.

      • Abby says:

        I realized when Gone Girl came out that Ben has what I didn’t know was a thing: a Punchable Face. That’s just his face. Haha. I think he always looks like this!

    • Carolnr says:

      I don’t think there is anything wrong about the way Ben is dressed.. He has on a nice , blue button down Henley shirt not a graphics T-shirt like he normally wears( not that there isn’t anything wrong with a great tee, but not for all occasions) & nice khakis. Those wrinkle- free pants usually have polyester in them & are not nearly as cool ( as in temp) than cotton khakis. Ben is not a wannabe model & is clearly not comfortable ” posing” & “”primping” for the cameras like JL JL’s source was quoted as saying that JL does not feel like she has to compete with Ben. Clearly, at one point JL felt she had to be in competition, while in a relationship! I think when Ben is with JL going forward, he will be sure that giant Phoenix tattoo is not exposed , though.
      Even when Ben & JL did that 1st video, Ben did not take off his shirt. Looking back on that infamous video, (compared to how far we have come with technogy), it was really bad!!!
      I may not be the norm but I actually like Ben with a little more weight on his body..he looks too thin.

      • josephine says:

        Yea, I was joking. They just looked like an ad, and no ad would feature wrinkled pants. But I do have a thing against pleats!

    • Mia says:

      There are some pictures of him laughing in Lainey’s post. Also, there’s video of them walking and being surrounded. I wouldn’t be able to relax if I were them.

  12. Becks1 says:

    This is fabulous, I love it. “look at us, just strolling the streets of Capri, totally normal, I’m in my sun hat, he’s in his tshirt, oh no, a paparazzi! oh no, whatever shall we do! pose, of course. there is no other answer.”

    It’s just such a good gossip fest.


    I like her outfit just as much as the version I saw on Amazon. Sometimes I just think about how I would dress if I had a celebrity budget and it would not be tattered lounge wear (though I get that that’s “the look”)

  14. MellyMel says:

    Ben being in better shape now than he was when he was Batman is hilarious to me. He looks so much better now. They both look great honestly and I’m still loving this mess! Also love Jen’s shorts.

  15. Sigmund says:

    They both look good. I definitely still see this ending as a complete and utter trainwreck, but they’re fun to watch until it happens.

  16. Myra says:

    She looks absolutely stunning. He looks better. Healthier. She is giving us a show and I’m thankful for it.

  17. Noki says:

    After a few months when this implodes PLEASE hush Ben we dont want to hear how you got sucked into all the media shenanigans,you cant blame Jlo twice.

  18. Tom says:

    That first photo HAS to be product placement for Valentino.

    Nicely played.

  19. Gil says:

    Ben Affleck doesn’t look puffy anymore. I think Jlo put Ben in the same vegan diet she is on. Or they are too “busy” that he doesn’t have time to booze.

  20. Theo says:

    I don’t know, romantic holidays with her manager, her photographer, her makeup artist, her team. It’s like he is dating not only Jlo , but all of them. Must be exhausting at one point.

    • B says:

      Yeah I noticed they never seem to be alone, always with her entourage.

    • Southern Fried says:

      Expertly planned and posed with all the planners, photogs, security, wardrobe, makeup, hair people. Almost daily for how many months now? What a pathetic way to live imo.

    • Jayna says:

      Yeah. What a vacation: surrounded by her personal photographer and all of her entourage. It feels like such a performative vacation showcasing their great love rekindled. It felt hotter the first time around, not so staged and managed every step of the way.

    • Chicago says:

      I’d hate it too! Yet it seems to me that most celebrities don’t mind that and some even love it. They are in this business for attention from others in every form… I used to model and act but stopped, because I’m too much of an introvert.

    • Karisma says:

      It wasn’t a romantic holiday though. It’s jlo’s birthday celebration.
      But she does love herself some entourage.

  21. Jessie Quinton says:

    This is my generation’s Taylor and Burton, I AM LIVING FOR THIS.

    • Chaine says:

      You are so spot on!

    • Amanda says:

      Yes! Except maybe not quite as messy.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Jessie Quinton, what icons they were!! ET had violet colored eyes and jewels that would put most royal counties to shame!! The Taylor/Burton diamond, the Mike Todd gifts of spectacular precious stones/diamonds ensembles that would probably cause ET to drown with the Ruby set that Todd gave her!! Such a fabulous, magnificent and decades long romance that would outshine generations to come!!

  22. L says:

    My guess is that she lives a very clean lifestyle. And that’s what is better for him. So maybe he’s gotten it out of his system and realizes he can have ‘it all’ with her, incl clean living. So it’s a good story?! (Still curious how this will end though…) but I agree it’s top gossip!

  23. Bobbie says:

    I can’t believe she’s over 50. Good for her.

    • Southern Fried says:

      I bet if you had all her resources you’d look absolutely just as good.

      • Gabriella says:

        The resources help, for sure, but it’s also the discipline of diet and most importantly, genetics.

      • Tanya says:

        Lol no. I know a ton of hedge fund wives her age who don’t look nearly as good.

      • Aeval says:

        Yeah, but resources, personal trainers and procedures only get you so far. J.Lo won the lottery when it comes to good genes.

      • Maria says:

        Hedge fund managers’ wives are not hosting Super Bowl halftime shows in bodysuits. I’d be disciplined too if that was my life.
        She’s rich enough to spend most of her time working out and other people cook for her. She can get laser and procedures (not implying plastic surgery or anything, just dermatological stuff etc) all over her body if she wants to do so (and I suspect she does, the way anyone in her position would). But yes, she IS gorgeous, and has been since youth.

  24. Erin says:

    Well they both look great, I have to say. She is STUNNING and absolute proof that exercise is the best anti-aging prescription there is.

  25. Justwastingtime says:

    I love Capri …. and their show but Capri is even better than their show .. sigh. Wish I was there.

    • Dilettante says:

      Me too. Totally envious of anyone on Capri.

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      These two get around! It feels like every few days when things must start to get regular, they can’t deal and go off somewhere.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      Capri is not that great compared to many other places in southern Italy. Sicily and Calabria come to mind and certainly less expensive than Capri.
      I paid 10 euros for a pint of Italian beer at a bar in Marina Piccola. Everything is overpriced.

  26. Tanya says:

    Ben got into better shape for J. Lo than he did for Batman.

  27. rainbowkitty says:

    I just don’t find him attractive at all. Am I the only one?

    • tempest prognosticator says:

      Nope. I don’t find him attractive,either. For me, it’s not just his looks it’s his personality. He seems to swing between self aggrandizing and self-pity. And the women folk are expected to clean up his messes. I mean, look at him… Jlo has quite literally cleaned him up.

    • Lena says:

      No not the only one. Things that make him not attractive to me are his teeth/mouth area, his fake looking beard -let the gray through it looks shoe polished on-although his cheeks are sunken now so I think he needs the beard. Someone just called it a punchable face- I would call it mopey and hangdog and not attractive most of the time but then I don’t like his teeth so I rather he not smile. My hubs is better although not as tall. I’ll give him that- although Ben’s bow legged.

    • Ines says:

      Same here, I never did, not even when he was in his prime.

  28. Case says:

    I appreciate 2021 for delivering some good celebrity gossip. This is all very silly, but very fun. Love J.Lo’s outfit.

  29. Basi says:

    They both look amazing. Jennifer you are perfection.
    Now just chill from here on out

  30. samipup says:

    He has stopped wearing old baggy Chinos and Red Sox tees. He is wearing *new* baggy Chinos.

  31. Liz version 700 says:

    This is so fun. Ben does look good. JoLo looks fabulous. Sigh carry on. Totally not staged couple, carry on

  32. Tanguerita says:

    I wonder how Ana de Armas doing…

    • Darla says:

      I don’t count Ana out. She could still rise like a phoenix (LOL) with an A list bf. I am pulling for her!

    • B says:

      She’s working and living her best life. Dumping Affleck was good career move, IMO.

    • Hell Nah! says:

      @Tanquerita – yes, I was wondering the same…despite the (probably) very good reasons she had for getting out of their relationship, I wonder if she is still feeling like a winner? Just a wonder I have…right alongside my wondering how is Jen G feeling watching (or at least hearing about) this reunion craziness with her ex and his ex, Jennifer v.1?

      Of course she knows ALL about Ben’s moves and was a 10 year front row participant to dealing with his flaws and his behind-the-scenes crap but man, this loved-up traveling circus show has got to have her feeling some sort of ways – non? No question this is the juiciest, most eXtra summer gossip but, I feel for Jen G.

      p.s. they both look great but, for me, Capri is the true star of this show.

      • Tate says:

        I hope Jen G is relieved to not be playing his babysitter. There are kids involved so of course it is complicated but she should be relieved to not deal with him daily.

    • Lena says:

      I’m sure Ana and Jen are relieved not to be part of his circus. Even if they loved him at one time, they’re over it now and there’s always chaos surrounding Ben no matter who he’s been with. Which is why he’s such a gossip magnet. This is good for gossip watchers but I don’t know how good for either of them in the long run. But that’s their life (and their kids who can get hurt or just embarrassed but they have other parents too).

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Last I read, she was dating a Tinder executive. I wonder if they’ll promote their movie together once it finally comes out.

  33. Azblue says:

    Whatever JLo is doing to Ben, I approve. He’s in the best shape of his life. Even the Batman franchise couldn’t debloat him. Seriously she should give out her secrets because he looks good after just a few months.

  34. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    Her ability to “stroll” in those shoes bespeaks a level of discipline and blister denial truly beyond my comprehension. Lol

  35. Candy Grana says:

    I’m pretty sure the bag is LV!

  36. Katie says:

    JLO looks amazing as always. Ben is such a plain Jane and so annoying. Like if they are going to do this, do it right! Get out your white on white outfit Ben, my god!

  37. detritus says:

    JLo saw the Armas spectacle and thought – I can do better.

    Ben actually seems to like being told what to do to a certain extent. Until he rebels of course. Let’s hope it’s adding sparkles to his Phoenix instead of lasering it off instead of something truly self destructive.

  38. Mcali02 says:

    Omg I want that hat!

  39. Clevelandgirl says:

    The bodyguard behind them that’s what I’m here for! He’s gorgeous! Ben and Jen aren’t too bad either

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I have a thing for bodyguards, those bodies! But did you zoom in on his face, I thought he was gorgeous but once I zoomed in, I almost screamed.

  40. MangoAngelesque says:

    Nobody poses in doorways like JLo is doing, perfectly positioning legs and bag for their most flattering angle, due to “love language.” They’re in full “look at us!!!” mode, and Jenny is LOVING it.

  41. Jaded says:

    I just don’t understand why Ben is jumping back into the very thing he ran from years ago — the constant posing and fame-whoring, not being able to go anywhere without a retinue of security people, professional groomers and photographers, assistants to carry their stuff, living life on camera ALL.THE.TIME. I think the two of them have such out of control egos that they’re not happy when they’re not on display, but he gets sick of it after a while and opts out at the 11th hour. This won’t end well.

    • AnneSurely says:

      I do crisis management as part of my job. His star has fallen and he needs a road back to his former glory. This is the first stop. It looks like he’s about to go off the rails with this circus but he’s ‘going to realize’ how ‘destructive’ this is for him in a couple of months, re-devote himself to his kids and male friends for a year and then find a woman like Amal Clooney.

      • Jaded says:

        You are spot on. The rehabilitation of his image is everything for him right now and Jennifer is a stepping stone.

  42. Lynn says:

    Ben really needs a haircut. Other than that, I’m all for these two.

  43. Lemondrop says:

    JLo gonna roll how JLo rolls.

    Love it! ❤️

  44. Rainbow says:

    Her bag is Valentino. Cute!

    I love them! Bring back the early 2000s!

  45. Jayna says:

    My sister said the same thing. He was at his peak at 45. He had everything and more great jobs than he knew what to do with. He was golden in Hollywood for acting/directing/screenwriting jobs. And then it all fell apart for him. Batman flopped. His directing the next Batman was out. During that time, his next movie he directed and acted in flopped. He was drinking. He was putting filler in his face and lasering his skin to the point it looked like baby’s skin. (Not good for a handsome man). His drinking intensified. Three years or more of that. He was lost, bloated. It was very sad. No person would do that to themselves willingly. He hit rock bottom several times.

    Small jobs after that. The Way Back he was amazing in, but came out during the pandemic. He wants to be relevant again. He pretends he’s above all of this, but this is the most staged, performative roll out of a couple I have ever seen. If Ben was at his peak like four years ago or more as a director, he wouldn’t be caught dead doing this. Not that he wouldn’t be in a relationship with Jennifer Lopez. He just wouldn’t be doing this big of an obvious PR stunt on their vacation. He’s always talked about his hatred of the unrelenting press attention to their relationship. And, yet, look at him now.

  46. Lena says:

    I always felt Ben lacked self awareness. Not a dumb man by any means but lacking in judgment. Here is NYT doing a profile of Matt and Ben. The old quote: I could sell magazine covers but not movie tickets came up and the reporter asked him to revisit that. His quote: Affleck….“In your asking about it there’s a subtle implication or judgment,” he said, “that I chose to seek out attention, and Matt didn’t. He and I have both assiduously tried to maintain our privacy.” He added, “I’m not a psychiatrist, but I would think that the process of suspending disbelief when watching an actor would be more difficult for an audience if they knew more about the person they’re watching.” I think he has a real disconnect in his mind. He is a true attention whore and he’s been doing it since JLo round one! He refuses to see it. Dang. He’s gonna regret this and I’ll just say FU Ben!

    This is a direct quote from the jewelry designer . ” Ben created unique jewelry items for JL before her birthday. ” With the custom piece Ben created, it clearly communicates their love, but it’s also a reminder of their capacity for change and growth. One of the medallions represents resilience, which we describe as wild, abundant, & untamed. The blossoms are fed with passion and continue to bloom, even in darkness against adversity.
    But we cannot separate the flower from its thorn. The thorn is the risk we assume for something we love for living life fully without reserve.”
    Oh my….I don’t know how this woman said this without busting out laughing! I don’t
    know who makes this sh$t up! Benny boy is a hopeless romantic until he casts that cold shadow….

    They look great, but is this “relaxed”, really? They look bored at best?
    I was just thinking how long it takes her to get ready in the morning. Having a team, rather than doing it herself, probably helps since she can get her hair and makeup done simultaneously, probably, but still? I don’t know if I could do it on a regular basis. I remember I once had a roommate who’d spend forever on makeup, we were always late everywhere, and it really took a toll on our friendship because I found it mega-annoying that I had to prioritize her cat eye over actual fun.

    Why does Ben think he’s going to feel any different this time? Her constant entourage is even bigger now.

    “Jen admits her relationships with Marc and Ben in particular may have been affected by her over-the-top lifestyle. “There’s a lot of people in my life and that’s hard,” she explained. “There’s people in the house. There’s hair and makeup. It’s a lot, I think, for someone to deal with.” Jennifer is regularly accompanied by her manager, Benny Medina, trainer Tracy Anderson and a team of stylists.

    “With so many people swarming her constantly, she sees how it can put additional strain on her relationships.“ Forget about all the outside stuff, being judged, being under scrutiny in the relationship… I guess that adds in… but I think they would say that [the entourage] was a big part of their discomfort, if there was any,” she said.

    She looks like a model in an ad, him not.

    It did take people’s minds off her breakup with A-Rod entirely which I can’t help wondering if that is (part of) the point. Maybe they have a deal with the paps … we’ll give you this if you leave us alone for a bit … tho’ can’t imagine that working. Just find it annoying and fascinating at the same time. J Lo must live in a bit of a fantasy world tho’ I guess why wouldn’t she …? It’s just it’s not her first time around the block with men in general. I think she must love this. Hard to know how Ben feels tho’ there were rumors that his relationship with Ama (?) was a set up, a contract. IF true, maybe he is just game in general, wants it for his career too, as someone else noted.
