Jennifer Lopez recalls meeting now-husband Ben Affleck on disastrous ‘Gigli’ set
Jennifer Lopez is down to create another love story on screen with husband Ben Affleck.The “Maid in Manhattan” star, 54, and the “Argo” director, 51, infamously starred in the 2003 box office bomb “Gigli.” Despite the rom-com being not-so well-received, it led to the long-time couple’s relationship as they met on set.The “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” singer looked back on the film and other past roles in a sit-down interview with Variety.“The first time meeting him on that film was at the read-through,” Lopez said.“They did a read-through of the whole thing and I remember kind of just walking in and I think he was outside, smoking a cigarette and I saw him and we just talked for, like, a minute and then I sat down and we did the read-through,” she went on.“I don’t remember a whole bunch more about it, but I remember being on the set with him every day and loving it.” The singer was married to her second husband, backup dancer Cris Judd, at the time.When asked if she would ever make a movie with Affleck again, she revealed she’s “open” to the idea.“I don’t know, in the right thing, maybe, in the right thing. I mean, we love working together and being together, so maybe,” Lopez added.The Martin Brest-directed project chronicled Affleck as a dumb hitman (Larry Gigli) who is tasked with kidnapping the brother of a prominent district attorney.
