Ben Affleck Praises JLo For Peaking At 50, Believes She Should Have Been Nominated For 'Hustlers'

Isn't it wild that we were alive to see one of the most random Hollywood couples of all time, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck?

Or, as the public affectionately called them, "Bennifer".

Who can forget his cameo in Jlo's iconic "Jenny from the Block" music video??!!

Well we know now that Ben would like to forget it!

In an interview back in 2008, Ben said the "Jenny From The Block" music video cameo was a "regret" of his.

"If I have a regret, it was doing the music video. But that happened years ago. I've moved on," he said.

Speaking of blocks, my ~personal~ fav Bennifer moment was when the pair were spotting fighting outside of a Blockbuster video store.

OHHH 2003.

As you may recall, the couple got engaged in 2002.

The rock was PINK AND GORGEOUS but alas, the relationship was not and the pair split two years later.

Even though Bennifer called off their engagement just FOUR DAYS BEFORE the ceremony back in 2004, it seems the exes are on good terms.

According to reporter Brooks Barnes, Ben had a lot to say about Jennifer's role in Hustlers during his interview with him for the New York Times.

"She should have been nominated. She's the real thing," Ben gushed.

He continued: "I have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That's [expletive] baller!"

Exes being mature and not petty? We love to see it!

And also yeah, Jlo DID deserve a nomination for Hustlers . You're right, BEN!!!!!

Of course there is (no offense) ZERO chance of a Bennifer reunion as JLo is happily engaged to Alex Rodriguez.

My ultimate power couple!

And now, it seems Ben is ~reportedly~ dating actress Ana de Armas!

Maybe everyone will have a happy ending after all!
