Jennifer Lopez Wore a Stunning Neon Gown and Kissed Ben Affleck at His Air Premiere
Jennifer Lopez leaned into bold color and even bolder red carpet PDA to support her husband Ben Affleck at the premiere of his film Air in Los Angeles. Lopez posed alongside Affleck, wearing a two-toned dress with an embellished sheer top and neon skirt by Antonio Grimaldi. Affleck kept his look more traditional in a black and blue Thom Sweeney suit.
The pair didn’t shy away from showing affection in front of photographers while on the red carpet. They kissed and appeared to genuinely adore each other during the photo call and, later, inside the event.
Lopez shared behind-the-scenes footage from the premiere on Instagram, captioning the post, “@airmovie premiere!!! ???????? @amazonstudios @artistsequity In Theaters April 5️⃣ @jlobeauty.”
The couple’s outing came hours before Entertainment Tonight reported that Lopez and Affleck are doing well as they settle into married life. They’re “doing fantastic [and are] incredibly supportive of one another,” a source said. That source offered an update on their house search, calling it “a bit stressful” but also “an exciting process.” Bennifer is “going big” with the property investment, as it will house their blended families. Lopez has two twins, Emme and Max, who are 15 now, with her previous husband Marc Anthony. Affleck, meanwhile, shares 17-year-old Violet, 14-year-old Seraphina, and 11-year-old Samuel with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
“Their families are continuing to mesh well together, and their kids are getting along for the most part,” the source said. “They know they live a very privileged life and are grateful for all the opportunities they’re given.”
