Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Make Their Red Carpet Debut As ‘Bennifer 2.0’ At the 2021 Venice Film Festival

The world held their breath when rumors started that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez might be getting back together. Could Bennifer really be back?

At the time, the couple refused to speak about their relationship, but we have seen them getting more and more comfortable being public about the fact that yes, Bennifer 2.0 is a real thing.

Lopez told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, “I know people are always wondering. How are you? What’s going on? Are you okay? This is it. I’ve never been better. And I want my people who care about me because I care about them so much, to know that I’ve really gotten to a place in my life where I’m great on my own. And I think once you get to that place, then amazing things happen to you that you never imagine in your life happening again. And so that is where I’m at. And I love all the love that’s coming my way right now and all of the, the good wishes. And I just want everybody to know that it’s the best time. It’s the best time of my life.”

Over the summer, the couple was spotted acting very much like a couple and looking quite smitten on both the east and west coast. Then, they made their relationship official on Instagram. Now, Bennifer 2.0 has stepped out in public together at the 2021 Venice Film Festival.

According to TMZ, Bennifer will be spending much of their time this fall in Austin where Affleck will be working on a new project called “Hypnotic.”  Lopez won’t be there 100% of  the time since she has her own projects to work on, but she will be there with Affleck periodically.

Do you think Bennifer 2.0 will last longer than the original Bennifer? Does it surprise you that Affleck and Lopez got back together after all this time?
