Ben Affleck’s famous ex Gwyneth Paltrow shares thoughts on his wedding to Jennifer Lopez

Much like Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker earlier this year, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tied the knot at an Elvis wedding in Vegas on July 19. The couple had only been engaged since April, but apparently they wanted to be husband and wife sooner rather than later. Bennifer fans are excited about the news, and they’re not the only ones. Even Affleck’s famous ex-girlfriend, Gwyneth Paltrow, had some thoughts about the JLo nuptials.

In terms of the timeline, Ben and Gwyn were the “it” element before Ben and Jen. They dated from 1997 to 2000 after meeting on the set of Shakespeare in love, the romantic drama that earned Gwyneth Paltrow her first and only Oscar win. Ben Affleck then started dating Jennifer Lopez, which was her first time, followed closely by her first engagement, which eventually fell apart. Apparently, they’ve managed to say yes now — almost 20 years later — and Paltrow apparently just thinks it’s so “romantic.” The infamous Goop founder reacted to the wedding on her Instagram Stories, as seen here:

Romantic indeed. Some might even say it was a long time coming… Kind of like Gwyneth Paltrow’s return to acting would be a long time coming considering the actress hasn’t had a movie role since Avengers: Endgame in 2019. However, Paltrow claims to have happily retired from showbiz while she focuses on her wellness brand. As for the former Batman actor’s other ex, his former wife Jennifer Garner, she was spotted weeks before the nuptials with JLo’s kids, but it seems like she wasn’t told much about the Vegas nuptials, according to some reports.
