Ben Affleck stars in George Clooney’s The Tender Bar, which will be released on December 22, 2021. According to an insider, “Jen famously did not get along with George Clooney when they made Out of Sight together. They couldn’t stand each other.”
“So it’s funny that Ben’s new movie is with George, and it’s no coincidence that Jen was not photographed on the red carpet with him, posing with George and [wife] Amal.”
Additionally, the source stated that, “Bridges need to be repaired.”
Earlier in the day, though, Jennifer Lopez or JLo was spotted holding hands with Ben on their way to another film screening, the two arriving casually. George was also observed at the same screening, dressed in a polo shirt and pants.
George and JLo co-starred in the critically acclaimed 1998 film Out Of Sight. And, while neither star has addressed any tensions that arose during production, JLo previously opened up to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show on her on-screen kisses.
“I’ve done over 30 movies, so the ratio… some are good, some are not so good,” she explained to the comic. When the A-lister failed to identify names, Jon surmised that George might be the worst of them all.
“He was OK! He was alright,” she remarked.
George, 60, and Ben, 49, photographed together at their film’s red carpet debut in Los Angeles over the weekend. The two actors, both of whom have portrayed Batman, laughed and smiled as Ben wrapped his arm around George’s shoulders.
Jlo and Ben resumed their romance early this year, more than 15 years after calling off their engagement. Their romance has developed rapidly, as seen by their earlier sightings touring multimillion-dollar residences in Los Angeles. The couple looked at an $85 million mansion in Beverly Hills, California, that would accommodate their combined brood of five children.
JLo and former spouse Marc Anthony share 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, while Ben and ex-wife Jennifer Garner share Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine.
