The actor was full of compliments for his girlfriend, in an interview with the media
The Gone Girl actor got poetic when he spoke to Adweek about the 52-year-old pop star, who received the publication's Brand Visionary Award.
He explained to the media that "he will never know" what it's like to impact the world like Jennifer has.
"All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference that representation makes, because I have seen, over and over and over and over, Latina women approach Jennifer and tell her that she is an example as a strong and as a successful woman", he said.
On Saturday, September 11, the day after making their red carpet return as a couple at the 2021 Venice Film Festival, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were heading to the city's Marco Polo Airport when they were approached by what appeared to be being an overzealous fanatic.
The man tried to take a selfie with them, but the actor stopped him. Ben gently but firmly pushed the person while JLo positioned herself behind the star.
The man stepped back and received a series of words from one of the couple's security guards as he continued on his way, holding hands, to the airport's general aviation terminal for a private flight.
