Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez started dating back in 2002 and were headed to the altar. This is a couple I just knew would get married and live happily ever after…like most Hollywood couples do, right?
Well, they shocked the entertainment world when they split just a few days before their wedding in September 2004.
Ben has finally opened up about their relationship saying that they were just "too accessible" to the media. Their relationship really did cause a media frenzy.
Ben said, "I think Jen and I made a mistake in that we fell in love, we were excited and maybe too accessible. I don’t think either of us anticipated the degree to which it would take on a world of its own." I can’t imagine the pressure being in the spotlight at such an extreme can have on a couple.
They are both now happily married. Jennifer is married to Marc Anthony and they had twins in February ’08. Ben is married to Jennifer Garner and they are expecting their second child soon.
