Lopez happy for Affleck's directing win at Globes
LOS ANGELES — When Ben Affleck won best director at the Golden Globe Awards for his Iran hostage thriller, “Argo,” ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez was among those cheering the loudest.
Lopez said she gave Affleck a standing ovation. “I am so happy for him,” she said.
Lopez and Affleck, who were known as “Bennifer,” broke off their engagement 10 years ago. The couple were always in the tabloids and became a source of derision, and their movie together, “Gigli,” bombed, hurting their careers. It's part of the reason Lopez was so happy to see Affleck, now married to Jennifer Garner, win big at the Golden Globe Awards. (“Argo” also won for best drama.)
Lopez, 43, also has a new film. “Parker,” also starring Jason Statham, is due out Friday. She plays a woman who has split from her husband, something the singer-actress can identify with. While she was working on the movie, she was also dealing with the end of her marriage to Marc Anthony, and it hit home.
