Jennifer Lopez may want to plug her ears for his one. Years after they split up, Ben Affleck has come forward to talk about his relationship with J. Lo. And he doesn’t mask his feelings (or lack thereof) for her.
In a new interview, Ben says he probably shouldn’t have ever started dating her in the first place. He says, "I was no longer in control of my life. I thought I wanted certain things, but I didn't. I got lost. I felt suffocated, miserable and gross. I should never have gone down that route or got sucked in to all the publicity.”
"I was typecast as myself. Too many people weren't getting past what they read about me. That was damaging. I can tell from experience it's bad for you, and bad for your career. So I took a break, went away for a while and let things calm down."
That was probably the best thing Ben ever did! And now that he’s happily married to the adorable Jennifer Garner, we can hardly remember the J. Lo days! She suits him so much better! And Ben agrees.
He says, "Work has taken a back seat. My job is not as important as it was. Saying that having a family changed my life is a cliche. But it's true - it re-arranged my life and made me see clearly."
We’re sure Jen appreciates that Ben realizes what a great family he has! We love them as a couple, and their kids are too cute!
