For EW’s January cover story, Affleck talked to longtime friend Matt Damon about meeting & falling in love with Lopez. He also said that Gigli underwent significant revisions as a result of the media’s fascination with their relationship. The studio was enamored with the concept at the time because I had started dating Jennifer Lopez, which had been generating a lot of interest and selling lots of magazines, he claimed. “I didn’t approach it carelessly. When I was younger, I was aware of the tabloid saga surrounding Sean Penn and Madonna. I was aware that may occur.”

Jennifer as well as I happened to be dating during a period when, if you want to contact it that, the entire field of celebrity journalism sort of exploded, Affleck continued. “But I suddenly realized that things were not going at all as I had anticipated. Famous for being a failure or an a-hole who is unable to work? I am unable to imagine a worse outcome. Because, other from maybe getting out of a few [traffic] penalties, I’ve never seen any benefit to celebrity.”
He said, “I’ve made reservations at eateries. “But being able to perform this task was the whole objective. There it was. What is it worth if not that? It is destructive. Your interactions with others are altered by it. But one thing that time has taught me is that transformation frequently comes from those moments of crisis, grief, or perspective. that have the power to make you scream “F—- it.” Well, this is ineffective. I had to try something new.’ I’ve unquestionably gained more knowledge from failure than from achievement.”

In February, Lopez discussed how the relationship changed the second time around with PEOPLE. She remarked, “We’re older now, smarter, more experienced, and at various stages of life. Now that we have children, we must pay close attention to such issues. Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony have twins Emme & Max, both 14 years old, while Affleck and ex-wife Jennifer Garner have Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, & Samuel, 10.
The fact that this has occurred in this manner at this point in our life when we can truly appreciate, enjoy, and respect one another, is a lovely conclusion, Lopez added. “We have always appreciated it, but now much more so since we are aware of the unpredictable turns life might take. We have enough experience playing the public game to know who we are as individuals and what counts and doesn’t. It’s vital to us that we conduct our lives from a position of respect and love for everyone in them. We respect the truth because we are aware of its existence.”
