"We went somewhere with Jennifer—I can’t remember because she’s so famous and she creates this...

Jennifer Lopez’s fame is ‘f…n’ bananas’

With Jennifer Lopez being a huge star in both music and acting, it's no surprise fans get a little excited to see her in public. Affleck recounted a recent family outing to Times Square in New York City with their blended family. This includes his three children with Jennifer Garner, Violet (18), Seraphina (15), and Samuel (12), along with Lopez's twins, Max and Emme, from her marriage to Marc Anthony.

“We get out of the car, we were going to a play, and I was like, ‘F—k it, babe, we’re going to be late, we gotta walk a block and a half.’ [Lopez] was like, ‘Alright,’ she didn’t say s—t,” he said. Affleck continued, “We get out with her, all the kids, through Times Square, and the s—t was like f—n’ bananas.'”

The Hollywood A-lister, however, didn’t shed any light on marriage troubles or separate housing choices, likely because the interview was conducted before their split and divorce rumours started circulating in Tinseltown. He did address why he always appears 'grumpy' when facing cameras and paparazzi, contrasting with JLO, who absolutely enjoys it.

Ben Affleck breaks silence on his ‘grumpy’ face

For a long time, Affleck's 'grumpy' and 'low-looking' demeanour has been linked to rumours of their split or trouble in paradise. However, a close friend later revealed that he simply doesn't like cameras, and it turns out they were right. Affleck directly addressed those facial expressions, stating that he sometimes appears frustrated in paparazzi photos because he's a “little bit shy.”

“I don’t like a lot of attention. This is why people see me and they’re like, ‘Why is this dude always mad?’ Because someone had their camera sticking in my face, and I’m like, ‘OK, here we go,” the Hollywood A-lister said.
