Ben Affleck recently opened up about his life with superstar Jennifer Lopez, describing it as ‘chaotic’ whenever they step outside together. Amid rumors of their ‘imminent’ divorce, Affleck shared insights into their high-profile relationship during an appearance on Kevin Hart’s interview show on Peacock.

The “Accountant” actor recounted a particularly chaotic scene in Times Square when he and Lopez, along with their blended family, were swarmed by fans and paparazzi. He highlighted how intense and overwhelming public outings can be with Lopez, given her immense popularity.

Affleck humorously recalled how his daughter came up with a potential title for her autobiography, “J-Lo Was My Stepmother.” He explained, “My daughter is always throwing out titles to her autobiography. We went somewhere with [Lopez] — I can’t remember because she’s so famous, and she creates this — people love her, and she really represents something important to people. [To me,] people are like, ‘Hey, I like your movie,’ and then they’re like ‘AAAHHHH! J-LO!’ It’s amazing, you know what I mean?”

Describing a memorable experience in Times Square, Affleck said, “I think it was when we rolled through Times Square. We got out of the car, we were going to a play, and I was like, ‘F— it, babe, we’re going to be late, we gotta walk a block and a half.’ [Lopez] was like, ‘Alright,’ she didn’t say s—. We get out with her, all the kids, through Times Square, and the s— was like f——’ bananas.”

He continued, “I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ There was a lady, she was smoking weed, in a full purple skintight suit — she’s a heavy lady — and she starts running backward filming, going ‘J-LO!!’ Like a herald, that then gets everyone else, and then all the tourists come in.”

Affleck shared how his daughter turned to him with a potential title for her autobiography during the chaos, saying, “Then we’ve got our five kids, it’s me and Jen and what feels like hundreds of people, and they’re all screaming. And my daughter just turns to me and goes, ‘J-Lo Was My Stepmother,’” Affleck said. “And I was like, alright that’s a good title.”

Affleck’s candid account sheds light on the extraordinary nature of living with a global icon and how it affects their blended family, while also showcasing the humor and resilience they bring to their unique situation.
