Singer/actress Jennifer Lopez has been with a few guys in Hollywood. During an interview with Maria Shriver, she opened up about her breakup with actor Ben Affleck. Lopez talked to Maria Shriver to promote her book “True Love.”
In her new book, Lopez talks about her past relationships. Shriver brought up how fast Lopez moved on with another man after she broke up with Affleck. To be fair, she moved on very fast after every relationship. She broke up with Affleck in January 2004, and was married to Marc Anthony by June 2004. She has two kids with Marc Anthony named Max and Emme.
Lopez agreed that she moved on too fast after becoming engaged to Affleck. She revealed that she considered it her first big heartbreak. It was really hard to get out of a relationship that was very publicized. You couldn’t read anything online or in print that didn’t mention Bennifer (Ben and Jennifer’s name, in case you didn’t know or remember).
The “American Idol” judge claims she has gotten better about breakups over time and considers it a work in progress. She compared their situation to being a middle child trying to get attention. Did she need the attention from Affleck or the paparazzi? It might be the latter more than the former.
The singer/actress broke up with her boyfriend dancer Casper Smart earlier this year. Lopez is determined to find happiness and is open to love, but she wants to be alone right now. We’ll see how long that lasts. She falls in love hard and fast so she will most likely move on with someone quickly. It was rumored that she followed up her romance with Smart with “Dancing With The Stars” professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, but that has yet to be confirmed.
It’s funny how she’s ready to talk about this relationship now that she has a book to promote. She was very good not to say much about it before she wrote the book. Now that Ben Affleck is in a hit movie, she’s going to use him to help promote her book, too.
