Ben Affleck has accomplished exactly what he was aiming for. As Hollywood’s award season is winding down he is the hottest thing in town and everyone is clamoring to work with the actor. His Argo is up for 7 Oscars and Ben’s career is one of the brightest stars in the Hollywood sky right now. Former fiancee, Jennifer Lopez is no slouch when it comes to angling for what she wants and right now what she wants is to team up with Ben on the big screen again. She realizes that right now pretty much anything he touches will turn to gold and she wants to be included in that.
Jen has been sending the star emails and according to the Feb 25th print edition of the GLOBE she invited the Affleck family to her twin’s upcoming party, trying to get in better with Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner I guess. The problem is that Garner is having none of this and she sees Jen’s angling for exactly what it is, a shameless attempt to ride on Ben’s coat tails and enjoy the waves of extra fame that he has worked for.
Apparently Garner is a sweetheart that hates no one (according to Ben) but she has absolutely no use for J-Lo. She has put her foot down and doesn’t want her husband having any sort of friendly contact with her and also is refusing to attend the twin’s party. Can you blame her? Would you want your husband getting chummy with his ex who has a boyfriend, but isn’t exactly tied down?
Do you think J-Lo’s motives are really just work related? Does she want to use Ben to help her land a film project that is box office magic, or is she looking to rekindle a bit more than that? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
Editor’s Note: Garner already forced Ben to drop out of ‘Focus’ because Kristen Stewart was his co-star. Garner didn’t want to deal with the inevitable media circus that would ensue with Ben and the Trampire filming together. Of course her concerns were entirely legitimate since Kristen is a proven home-wrecking slut and Ben’s history of cheating is second to none.
