Ben Affleck revealed that he initially asked his wife Jennifer Lopez to keep their rekindled romance offline after getting back together in 2021.

While navigating their reconciliation two decades after their first engagement, the two-time Oscar winner, 51, admitted he had no interest in becoming a fixture on his 54-year-old wife’s social media accounts.

In his wife’s new Amazon Prime documentary, The Greatest Love Story Never Told, the Gone Girl star explained her fears that Lopez would share photos of them with her more than 253 million followers.

“When we got back together, I said, ‘Listen, one of the things I don’t want is a social media relationship,’ the actor recalled. Then I realized it wasn’t fair to ask. It’s like you’re getting married. with the captain of a ship and say: ‘Well, I don’t like water.’

He continued: “We’re just two people with different types of approaches trying to learn how to come to terms.”

In the end, Lopez has respected his wishes and only posted a small handful of snaps featuring him, including a cheeky shirtless photo this past Father’s Day and a sweet video of them singing Sam Cooke’s (What A) Wonderful World in the car on his birthday.

During the documentary, the mother of two acknowledged Affleck’s discomfort with being in the spotlight as a couple after facing intense media scrutiny when they first dated from 2002 to 2004.

‘I don’t think so [Ben] “She’s very comfortable with me doing all this,” he said. “But he loves me, he knows I’m an artist and he will support me in any way he can because he knows you can’t stop me from making the music I made… he doesn’t want to stop me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s comfortable being the muse.

The Let’s Get Loud hitmaker went on to share the incredibly romantic gift her husband gave her on their first Christmas together.

She gushed that Affleck had made a book of every letter and email they had exchanged over two decades, which he titled The Greatest Love Story Ever Told.

In December, she admitted that “they both have PTSD” due to the spotlight on their first romance.

After breaking off their engagement, they both married and divorced other people before finally finding their way back into each other’s arms.

She shared that “we both have PTSD” from her initial experience, but explained that in their current life as a married couple they are “older” and “wiser.”

J-Lo added: ‘We also know what’s important, what’s really important in life, and it’s not so much about what other people think. It’s about being true to who you are.’

Jennifer and Ben first became a couple on the set of Gigli and embarked on a relationship that became a point of attention.

His striking public appearances, accompanied by the box office disaster of Gigli, were a topic of constant conversation.

Jennifer added fuel to the fire with the release of This Is Me… Then, which was dedicated to her boyfriend and featured songs about him, including Dear Ben.

‘Bennifer’ became a lightning rod of adulation and then ridicule, including a memorably acidic parody of them in an episode of South Park.

In the end, Lopez has respected his wishes and only posted a small handful of snaps featuring him, including a cheeky shirtless photo this past Father's Day and a sweet video of them singing Sam Cooke's (What A) Wonderful World in the car on his birthday.

Trey Parker, co-creator of the cartoon, later claimed that he heard gossip that production assistants began quoting the parody on the set of one of J-Lo’s films.

“He got so angry and had to fire people,” alleged Trey, who is also one of the show’s voice stars. “But she kept hearing it in the distance.”

The couple became engaged in late 2002, but broke off the engagement in late 2003 before ending their relationship completely in 2004.

In the intervening years, Jennifer married and divorced her third ex-husband, Marc Anthony, with whom she welcomed her 15-year-old twins Max and Emme.

Meanwhile, Ben married and divorced Jennifer Garner, with whom he amicably co-parents three children: Violet, 18, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11.
