Jennifer Lopez said, “It was brutal. It’s one of those things that you bury very deeply so you can move on and get about your business. It’s funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love. It was one of the happiest times of my life.”

The actress further stated that there was this other thing happening where they were being criticised, and it really destroyed their relationship from the inside out. She said that because they were just too young to understand at that time what were really the most important things in life.

It is pertinent to mention here that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck has started their relationship in 2000 and got engaged in 2002 but they eventually had to part ways two years later in 2004 after postponing their wedding due to ‘excessive media attention.’
