Ben Affleck had a super cute reaction when a reporter slipped in a Jennifer Lopez mention during a red carpet interview over the weekend!
The 49-year-old actor attended the premiere of his new film The Tender Bar on Sunday night (October 3) alongside the film’s director George Clooney.
For those of you who didn’t know, George starred in the 1998 movie with Jennifer. Last year, he did a video for GQ in which he talked about his most iconic characters and he opened up about that film.
“Every actress in town read for that part, and part of it was that she had to be sexy, but you also had to believe that she could shoot you and kill you. And Jennifer had all of that,” George said back in November 2020.
He added, “You know, you believe every minute when she picked up a gun, she might pull the trigger and blow your head off, and she was really good. She was wonderful in the film, and it’s funny because she’s had an amazing career, and gone on to do so many things, and sort of be an all-around entertainer, but I think if you look back, that’s a performance. That really stands out for her.”
The reporter read Ben the first part of the quote and asked if he knew who George was talking about.

With a smile on his face, Ben said that he has “no idea” who George was talking about. He then added that it “sounds like a good movie.”
The Access Hollywood reporter asked Ben if he agrees with the quote and he said, “I think George is a really smart guy, an excellent director, and did a wonderful job.”
Hours before attending the premiere, there were photos of Ben and Jen stepping out together in Los Angeles.
