    Wink Ben Affleck still 'touches base' with Jennifer Lopez

    'I touch base... I like her': Ben Affleck reveals he's still in contact with ex Jennifer Lopez



    By Daily Mail Reporter

    PUBLISHED: 02:33, 11 October 2012 | UPDATED: 14:08, 11 October 2012

    It's eight years since the world was transfixed by the antics of the duo dubbed 'Bennifer'.

    But Ben Affleck has revealed he is still in touch with his ex-fiance Jennifer Lopez.
    'We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice,' he said of the star. 'But we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, "Oh, your movie looks great."'

    Affleck told The Hollywood Reporter that he supported his one-time love in her career.

    'I remember when she got American Idol. I said: "This was really smart. Good luck."

    'I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful.'

    Affleck, now 40, and Jennifer began dating in 2002 and swiftly became tabloid staples, announcing their engagement that year when he presented her with a huge 6.1 carat pink diamond.

    They set a date for 2004, but broke up shortly before, blaming the media interest.

    Today Affleck is happily married to Jennifer Garner, with whom he has three children.

    'She truly is kind,' he told THR of his wife. 'She means no one any harm.
    'She doesn't have ill will for any person. She's not competitive with other people. She's not spiteful.'

    Affleck also talked about his brief spell in rehab, saying simply: 'I went to rehab for being 29 and partying too much and not having a lot of boundaries and to clear my head and try to get some idea of who I wanted to be.

    'It was more a "let me get myself straight," before it became a rite of passage.'

    I never really could imagine what they had to talk about back when they were dating and I really can't imagine what they have to talk about now.

    Oh please. I guess this makes him look like a great guy. But I'd have more respect if he stayed far away from her. It's taken his career forever to recover from the massive joke he became while involved with her. Even that picture of the two of them is hilarious. He's so shiny and slick and unlike himself (or at least the image that made everyone love him) that it's creepy.

    I can't think of anyone he dated that he probably had less in common with than JLo. Even including Paltrow (though she acts like she's miles above him and that their involvement was a phase of temporary insanity).

    Yeah, bleh...^ That really paints her as playing the martyr, too. And I do think she sees herself that way.

    Yeah his comments about his wife are really humiliating, unless there's more to it than that and they've picked out the absolute worst bits. Poor JenGar. I'm surprised he even discusses JLo, if I were him I'd never speak to her again, she turned him into a complete wanker.

    He talks about Blake Lively WAY too much. He was talking about her on Anderson Cooper too. Bad vibe there....and the comments about his wife.....she is way more into him than him into her. Which has been established, but this drives the point right home.

    I think he is a dick. I never saw much to him at all. Matt on the other hand...
