In the early 2000s, Bennifer provided us with iconic pop culture moments like the 'Jenny From The Block' music video and potentially the worst movie in existence, Gigli.
Of course, back then, we didn't know they were Bennifer 1.0, as Affleck would go on to marry Jennifer Garner. All we knew were that these two very attractive people made a very attractive couple, enjoyed a whirlwind romance and made objectively terrible movie decisions together.
The good old days.

It's been 17 years since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez broke up after 18 months together. In the years since, both have had further high-profile relationships and marriages while maintaining bloody solid careers. And Gigli remains the worst film they've both done.
But it's 2021 now, and there's been some major movement on the Affleck and Lopez relationship timeline.
In late April, the exes were seen spending time at Lopez's Los Angeles home, as photographed by Page Six, which has obviously led to reconciliation rumours.
And then in May... THEY WENT ON A WEEK-LONG HOLIDAY TOGETHER. Even more recently, Affleck spent time with Lopez's mother. Which sounds pretty bloody serious to us.
Obviously, all of this has us asking, 1. what the heck is going on? and 2. What really bad movie are they going to release next? Here is our very important investigation into everything we know about Bennifer 2.0, starting from the beginning of this year.
Affleck calls out 'sexist and racist' coverage of J.Lo.
The exes have reportedly been friendly for years and catch up every so often, but things seem to have ramped up this year before possibly turning romantic again.
In January this year, Affleck reflected on the unfair criticism Lopez faced over their relationship with The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast.
