Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez spent a lot of time together this weekend. They went to an optometrist together for Emme’s eye appointment. They helped her pick out a cute pair of eyeglasses. Then on Sunday, J.Lo was Ben’s plus-one at the LA premiere of The Tender Bar, the film for which he will likely have an Oscar campaign. It all depends on the critical response, but I could absolutely see Amazon Studios putting some money behind Affleck and George Clooney.
J.Lo wore Elie Saab – a light, airy blue which looks see-through in the skirt. She did come with a matching coat, but she didn’t wear it on the carpet. Ben is still totally into it. Is Jen? I think so. I mean, she agreed to come, didn’t she? Perhaps she fancies helping Ben out during the awards season. And after all, she’s got to promote Marry Me soon enough, Ben will need to support her for that.
Meanwhile, did you guys see that J.Lo got a cat?? She – or her kids – named the cat Hendrix. I wonder if Hendrix is a rescue kitty or some kind of purebred whatever. I also wonder if the cat is more for Emme and Max. J.Lo doesn’t seem like a cat person.
