Ben Affleck recently revealed an intense moment at the 2003 Grammy Awards involving his then-girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Affleck recalled Lopez’s outfit causing a stir among the ceremony’s organizers.
“Jennifer wore this dress, and Jenny From the Block was like, she’s still from the block, and it was just so authentic to who she was,” said Affleck. “She’s like, ‘I want to wear this.‘”
But apparently, Lopez’s outfit didn’t sit well with everyone. “The guys were all like, ‘Oh my god, this is going to be a disaster,’” recalled Affleck. “I was like, ‘What?‘”
According to Affleck, there was even a threat to cut Lopez’s time on stage if she didn’t change her outfit. “I’m just sitting there trying to be supportive,” he said. “She’s like, ‘They asked me to present alone. I said I’ll do it, but I want you to come with me.’”
That’s when Affleck said he gave the event organizers an ultimatum. “I said, ‘If you f–k with her, you’re going to have to f–k with me,’” he said. “I was just trying to support my girlfriend.”
Affleck’s protection paid off, and Lopez went on to present solo and receive a standing ovation. Despite the drama, Affleck said he’s proud to have been by her side. “I was very much in love with her,” he said. “I thought she was sort of, like, perfect. I think that was part of the problem, you know?”
Affleck and Lopez, who recently rekindled their romance, made headlines in the early 2000s when they were one of Hollywood’s most talked-about couples. Now, almost two decades later, fans are eagerly following their rekindled relationship, hoping to see if they’ll walk the red carpet together again.
