LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Revelations happen whenever longtime friends and collaborators, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, sit together for an interview. It wasn’t an exception when they appeared for 'The Bill Simmons Podcast' released on Wednesday, March 22. However, this revelation was a bit interesting as it shed a light on Affleck's personal life and his equation with his wife.

Affleck, 50, revealed in the podcast about his wife, Jennifer Lopez's, unprecedented love for the Paramount Network’s show ‘Yellowstone’. "I’m kind of disturbed that my wife really likes 'Yellowstone'," admitted the ‘Air’ director. He further continued by revealing his wife is "really drawn to the romance between Cole Hauser and the woman who plays his wife,” referring to Kelly Reilly. It is interesting to note that the characters of Rip Wheeler (Hauser) and Beth Dutton (Reilly) have an on and off relationship for over 20 years, which is quite similar to "Bennifer’s" own romance that spanned over two decades and witnessed many ups and downs.

The ‘Gone Girl’ star candidly shared,  “Jen showed me a clip of her off of Instagram, the monologue she has with the kid in the car about the ways to become rich.” Affleck added, “And then she was like, 'I love this story of these two.'" To which her flabbergasted husband replied, "I was like, 'Wait a minute? With Cole? With Hauser? What do you love about it?'" 


Perfectly imperfect 'Yellowstone' couple

Well, now since we know how much Lopez adores 'Yellowstone', let's delve deeper into what the show has been witnessing recently. The fans of the show get to see their favorite pair getting married in the last episode of 'Yellowstone' Season 4. Ahead of the fifth season’s premiere, Hauser talked to US Weekly about how “imperfect” the pairing is. He stated, "I think Taylor does a great job of putting that on paper. And then Kelly and I take it and we put our spin on it."

Hauser added, “And where there’s moments that, maybe, there would be anger, there’s love instead. And there’s a lot of levels to the characters that Kelly and I have just found throughout the years. And I think it’s wonderful that people actually still care about the two of them the way they do.” In January, the ‘School Ties’ star shared with US Weekly what he deemed to be the perfect ending for Rip’s character. Hauser said, “Probably sitting on a porch, hopefully with Beth,” before adding, “I think they love each other too much [to ever split]. They’re meant to be together.”


About Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's relationship

Affleck and Lopez first met in 2002 on the set of their film 'Gigli'. In November that year, the couple got engaged and were slated to marry in 2003. However, due to “excessive media attention” they decided to postpone the wedding, as reported by People. In 2004, Affleck and Lopez broke up. The following year witnessed both the stars go on to marry respectively.

However, Affleck got separated from his former wife, Jennifer Garner, in 2018 and Lopez divorced her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, in 2014. In April 2021, rumors began to circulate that the former couple had rekindled their romance with them going social media official in July when Lopez posted a picture of them kissing.



In April 2022, they got engaged again, and married each other in July 2022 in Las Vegas. "It's a beautiful outcome that this has happened in this way at this time in our lives where we can really appreciate and celebrate each other and respect each other," Lopez wrote in her ‘On thee Jlo’ newsletter. She added, "We always did, but we have even more of an appreciation because we know that life can take you in different directions.” In August that year, the couple got married again in Georgia.
