Fans of the stars – and journalists – are also keen to hear any insight from the celebrity couple's friends, including Matt Damon. The Stillwater actor made a joke about the Bennifer 2021 romance while appearing virtually on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show.
"I know you're very happy for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez," said the host. "I know you love getting asked about that."
"Right. But how else would I be? Like, would I be unhappy?" joked Matt as he giggled. "Like, I hate true love. It sucks."
He quipped, "I wish them nothing, but, you know, hardship.”
In May, Matt coyly opened up about the Bennifer romance reports swirling at the time after it was believed the pair vacationed together in Montana that month.
During a virtual appearance on the Today show to promote his new film Stillwater, he joked about "just hearing the rumours" surrounding Ben and J.Lo at that very moment.
"I was sitting here waiting to come on TV. It's the first time I heard about it," Matt began.
