Autumnal Bennifer: Ben Affleck & J.Lo reunite in NYC for ‘The Last Duel’ premiere

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck hold hands as they leave  "The Last Duel" after-party

Another Autumnal Bennifer Weekend! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez flew (separately?) to New York for the latest premiere of his film, The Last Duel. Incidentally, I’ve seen some reviews of the film and the critics are saying that it’s surprisingly good, and that Jodie Comer is great and Ben is a scene-stealer. So Ben might actually be part of some Oscar campaign this year? We’ll see how everything pans out.

Anyway, Bennifer looked great! They look loved-up. Ben looks like he could eat her for dinner. J.Lo looks truly happy. She wore a Herve Leger two-piece ensemble which showed off her abs and yes, I’m jealous. Ben wore Ralph Lauren. I like that they didn’t really color coordinate too hard – I see that as a sign that while J.Lo loves to match with her men (or make her men match her), she’s chilling out on that a little bit out of respect for Ben. The color wheels are still involved, but she’s not going overboard.

So… yeah. Even though they’re working on separate projects – he’s in Texas, she’s in Canada – they’re still flying to see each other and walk red carpets for each other. Cute.

Ben also made another little appearance on her Instagram!!

    Ben definitely has already started his awards compaign mode. He’s shaved his beard to separate his real life persona from his two on-screen personas, both of which spotted beards or goaties.

    • Karisma says:

      @ Nana
      I read that he’s filming a movie and that’s why he shaved his beard

      • nana says:

        Oh, the Hypnotic thing. Just checked Ben’s IMDB page, man, his works in the pipeline really stack up, and writing and directing take up more time and energy. How is he supposed to find time juggling between work, dating JLo, and kids?

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ nana, that’s an excellent question!!! How is HE, of all frikin’ people, able to juggle all of these balls, which one set is of is his own, but HOW?!?!?!????

        Granted he does look better than he has in a good long while, but please tell me how? I know that JLo is meeting him at places where he is at, but I am dumbfounded…..

      • Anne Call says:

        @bothsidesnow, well the kids part of his busy life is probably being managed by their mom who is with them 24/7 with Ben jetting in for “special weekends”.

      • a0 says:

        Ben has 50/50 physical custody. He’s filming a movie in Texas and when he visited JLo in NYC, Jennifer Garner and her boyfriend were also photographed in the city.

    • Mcali02 says:

      He may be someone who functions better when he’s busy.

      • minx says:

        That could be. Seems like JLo is a good influence on him, I can’t remember when he looked this good.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Keeping busy also helps to keep his addictions at bay. As the saying for addicts goes: “your head would kill you if it didn’t need your body for transportation.“ Having his mind occupied keeps him in a good place.
        Plus he seems more confident and comfortable with himself so he probably feels able to handle the projects he has in the works. On top of that, J Lo is an amazing manager of her own vast empire and may be giving him tips and being a cheerleader for him. She lives a healthy lifestyle and if that’s rubbing off on him, he probably also has a lot more energy now as well.

  2. Eleonor says:

    I am not fan of the dress, but If I had those abs I would totally show them!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I agree @ Eleanor. She has incredible abs but her dress looks cheap, regarding the material. I do like the color though.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Oh, I love that dress! Not so crazy about the black see-through inserts on the top, but love it & she looks great in it.

  3. Karisma says:

    They look gooooood

  4. Amy Bee says:

    They really look good together.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. While Ben is far from perfect, I think he’s a sizable upgrade from ARod.

    • Golly Gee says:

      The way they look at each other is like they’ve known each other for hundreds of years and have just found each other again. I know it sounds sappy, but I just think “soulmates” whenever I see them together. I really hope they make it.

  5. minx says:

    Hot, both of them.

  6. Hell Nah! says:

    Her abs are be-Yond!

    I’m green with envy and ask myself where my discipline went?

    They both look great.

  7. D says:

    Her abs and legs are just amazing for any age, but this woman is what, 52? It’s insane. Ben has never done it for me and that hasn’t changed, but I do like his suit.

  8. MellyMel says:

    They look great! That shade of brown looks good on Jen.

  9. a0 says:

    They look so genuinely happy together, it’s cute.

    Prayers up for a Best Supporting Actor nomination, Bennifer at the Oscars needs to happen. Seems to be a lot of love online for Ben’s performance so it seems like a possibility.

    • Karisma says:

      The last duel was trending and all the reviews on Twitter were singing ben’s praises?! I was surprised lol I’ve always been pretty excited for this movie so I’m happy it’s getting great reviews. And indeed it would be awesome to have a bennifer Oscar season

  10. Kate says:

    lol she really flew all the way to NY to a premiere that’s not even her own. The thirst is astronomical.
    And again Jodie Comer playing second fiddle at her own movie premiere SMH.

    • a0 says:

      Or maybe she wanted to bring attention to the movie (which will probably struggle at the box office) and support her partner who wrote, produced and starred in it.

    • Anne says:

      I think it’s more both of them are flying every weekend to see each other too? And their kids , of course. Since they’ve been working in different cities he flew to NY to see her perform, then they were in LA with both of their kids, now they are in NY… I think it’s a combo of wanting to spend time together while juggling with their compromises… And also, making use of the good PR they are having right now

    • Sunny says:

      Don’t people travel to support their partners and their projects?

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Supporting your partner is thirst lol? Oookkkkaaay

  11. Emily says:

    That IG post is so funny. Here’s my bum … oh and my boyfriend. It’s the most Leo/JLO thing ever.

  12. FluglyBear says:

    This movie has tons of buzz, especially for historical movie folks.

  13. BlueNailsBetty says:

    This is the best Ben has looked in a loooooong time. He looks like he has lost the alcohol bloat. I know JLo is a very disciplined person health wise and it looks like she may be influencing him.

    I hope he keeps this up.

    • Truthiness says:

      While promoting he is going to keep getting into social situations where everyone is drinking, allegedly he’s been seen having a couple. Jen’s discipline and drive is a good counter for that, flying often to see him is going to help keep those demons at bay. And for her it’s leagues above the cheating ARod.

  14. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    Sooo, have we discussed the 🤯 of Ben Affleck writing and starring in a film about rape culture and toxic masculinity? I mean, I even kinda like the guy despite everything (I know, I know), but the cojones it takes for him to do this, to promote this, knowing the amount of film there is of him groping women, being completely inappropriate with women on camera, etc. And his character in the film is basically this behavior on medieval steroids. Just…wow. Has any reviewer talked about this? Has he talked about this? I’m gobsmacked.

    • nana says:

      You seem can’t separate art/literary commentary from the man himself. Do you suppose Nicole Holofcener, the female writer both Ben and Matt specifically inducted to create a woman’s perspective, is a sell-out now? Or do you think one is only allowed to make Disney movies now?

      • corralee says:

        It’s truly insane how many defenders Ben affleck has, the man who has groped women and cheated on multiple partners.

      • Diamond Rottweiler says:

        We’re not going to solve the age old theoretical quagmire of separating the art from the artist in a comment thread. And women cape for shitty men all the time. My puzzlement was actually more in the studio letting Affleck and Damon (who in recent years has run his mouth in a variety of horrible ways for which he always seems to be apologizing) both make & then lead the publicity for a film specifically about rape culture and toxic masculinity. I guess we understand how seriously Hollywood actually takes these issues. It’ll be interesting to see if these two make it through the press junkets without this becoming an angle on the film. Or some reporter asking JC how she feels about their track records. Because I bet lots of people besides me have noticed the irony here. But then people are making so much money off the Bennifer Againifer thing maybe we’ll all just agree to ignore how darkly absurd it is.

      • nana says:

        Diamond Rottweiler, Since when has cancel culture become such toxic? Are you saying a man cannot redeem himself, that he must be pinned on the cross forever?

    • Jules says:

      everyone is too brainwashed by bennifer’s “love story” to remember these fine details.

  15. Vanessa says:

    I really want to see this movie. I don’t remember the last time we went to a theater. Planning to see it this weekend. They look amazing and Ben just wow.

  16. Jaded says:

    *SIGH* Once again the sexy-mouth-half-open pose with a side of rear end. She’s exhausting.

    • Tinnie says:

      I agree. I know she has a lot to promote (can’t help wondering if the relationship falls into this category too) but can’t there be a break from seeing her posing? It becomes too much. I hope what they have is real, not saying it’s staged, but they could also get caught up in their own hype. I also think this kind of appearance – the over the top ness of it – takes away from the film and other actors/director.

  17. Locamocha says:

    They both look soooo good. I hope they’re for real happy and this lasts. I was skeptical but I’m definitely here for it now.

  18. Ann says:

    That is one of my absolute favorite colors and always has been. I wish I could pull off that style/cut! She looks great. He looks good too, more understated but that’s his thing. Glad to hear the movie is decent. I might want to see it now.

  19. David says:
