The couple walked the red carpet together at the premiere of his film, The Last Duel on Friday September 10, and were not shy about their affection towards one another amid their rekindling.
The Good Will Hunting actor, 49, put on an amorous display with his 52-year-old leading lady as he threw his arm around her waist, rested his hand on her backside and planted a series of face kisses.
And Kim seemed to be all about their love amid the fizzling of her own marriage with Kanye West, despite E! News reporting that Kim is ‘open’ to getting back with the father of her four children.
The SKIMS founder and Jennifer have long run in the same circle and ironically enough it was the Hustlers star’s ex-fiancee Alex Rodriguez who most recently dished on their friendship in a 2019 PEOPLE interview.

‘We’ve all known each other for a long time. But Kim and Jennifer are very, very close, and she’s almost like a mentee of Jennifer, and Jennifer’s mentored her a lot over the years.’
‘Now they just go back and forth,’ A-Rod continued. ‘They mentor each other, and they have this really beautiful relationship that goes back over a decade and a half, and it’s nice to do anything with Kim and our family,’ he said at the time.
The ladies had previously even appeared in a commercial together for Facebook Portal and have buddied up to each other at many red carpet events, with Lopez additionally being a staple on the Kardashian Christmas Party list.
‘My inspiration for everything has always been Jennifer Lopez,’ Kim gushed in a 2018 Instagram video. ‘If you would have said to me 10 years ago, “Jennifer Lopez is coming over for your house to watch a movie and to have dinner,” I never would have imagined this would have been my life! Dreams do come true.’

Jennifer and Ben’s first red carpet appearance together comes just months after the pair first gave love another shot and a whopping 17 years after they were first engaged to be married.
And as their romance continues to burn strong it has been reported that the pair are ‘seriously talking about getting married’ this time around, per Us Weekly and they’ve already begun to blend their families.
‘They are both madly in love and don’t want to let one another go this time,’ an insider said. And both consider each other to be ‘the one that got away,’ and are dead set on ensuring that doesn’t happen again.
Most recently it was reported that Affleck has rented a luxury condo in Austin, Texas as he prepares to shoot his upcoming film Hypnotic, with TMZ sources saying that Lopez plans to spend time there as a potential ‘dry run’ for living together amid their ongoing house hunt in LA.
