Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have made their red carpet debut since reuniting as a couple at the Venice Film Festival on Friday. They sealed their newly-minted reconciliation with a kiss.
The couple, known to fans as “Bennifer,” walked hand-in-hand ahead of the premiere of Affleck’s new film “The Last Duel” after walking the red carpet together almost 20 years ago for the premiere of their movie, Gigli in 2003.
The couple is not shy to share with the world their rekindled romance. After going Instagram official, Jennifer and Ben are making sure to hold the eye of the paparazzi at every outing.
With their Friday’s red carpet debut, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have left their fans sighing at their gorgeous much-in-love pictures.
Lopez wore a daring Georges Hobeika white couture gown with a cascading slit, while Affleck opted for a classic black and white tuxedo with a bow tie. She accessorized her look with Cartier jewelry – a bracelet, ring, and earrings with radiant yellow diamonds. Cartier is the official jewelry sponsor of the festival.
Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, shared a sweet kiss on the carpet.
While the fans couldn’t stop expressing their love for the couple, celebrities also couldn’t hold back. “Long Live Bennifer,” Kim Kardashian West wrote on her Instagram Story over a picture of Lopez and Affleck at the festival.
Earlier in the day, Affleck and Lopez were pictured snuggled up on a water taxi traveling across the Venice basin toward the Cipriani Hotel. For the other two occasions on which Bennifer was captured on Friday, Lopez wore a white lace dress and a striking black stripe two-piece earlier in the day.
Lopez spoke in July about how blissful she has been amid her new, rekindled romance with Affleck, which started in May.
“I’m super happy,” she told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1. “I know people are always wondering. How are you? What’s going on? Are you okay? This is it. I’ve never been better. And I want my people who care about me because I care about them so much, to know that I’ve really gotten to a place in my life where I’m great on my own. And I think once you get to that place, then amazing things happen to you that you never imagine in your life happening again. And so that is where I’m at. And I love all the love that’s coming my way right now and all of the, the good wishes. And I just want everybody to know that it’s the best time. It’s the best time of my life.”
After paparazzi photos surfaced for months of the two reuniting after her breakup with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, Lopez confirmed their relationship status on her 52nd birthday by sharing a photo on Instagram of her and Affleck lip-locked.
If sources are to be believed, TMZ reported that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck plan to spend part of their fall together in Austin, where Affleck will be shooting a new project. The two have been spending quality romantic time back in Los Angeles, “blending families” in sweet dinner outings in addition to hunting for mansions.
