Matt Damon couldn't be happier for being the third wheel with Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, as he has demonstrated during some interviews that he is extremely happy for his pal's renewed romance with the singer of “Waiting for Tonight.” Not only that, but we've been able to witness how great of a friend he is, after spotting them together on a day at the beach in LA.
The 'Good Will Hunting' actor was pictures alongside Bennifer, who were holding hands as per usual, on a private beach in Malibu, near Paradise Cove. The three A-list stars were seen having an absolute blast together, and that's what they projected on the photos taken by the highly popular news website TMZ.
Damon's friendship with Ben Affleck has been going on for over 25 years now. At the beach, he decided to wear a white tee, black gym shorts and a hat, so he could enjoy the beachside stroll in the company of the couple. Meanwhile, the 'Justice League' actor went on to dress similarly, wearing a casual blue t-shirt and black pants. Of course, it was Jennifer Lopez who outshined the two men by having a very chic two-piece white coverup that made her look like a greek goddess, no more no less.
It was on May when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez got back together. Ever since, they have been inseparable. In fact, they have been part of the conversation for months all over the world; even Matt Damon, who has been promoting his latest film 'Stillwater,' has been asked about their relationship on multiple occasions. During a recent interview, the actor went on to give a sarcastic answer on the topic, during his appearance at the SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show. “How else would I be? Like would I be unhappy?” said the actor with a laugh, when asked about his feelings towards Bennifer 2.0. “Like I hate true love, it sucks,” Damon added in a sarcastic tone, before joking when he said that he only wishes Ben and Jennifer “nothing but you know, hardship.”
Previously to that conversation, Damon told Extra that he “was just so happy” for Ben after the actor reunited with Jennifer Lopez, whom he was engaged to in the early 2000s. The actor went on to gush about his best friend, by saying “he's the best. He deserves every happiness in the world. I'm glad for both of them.”
Evidently, the Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck rekindling has become a spectacle for the media, since they got back together. Not only because of the paparazzi, who have been able to spot them on several romantic outings, but also the duo were blatantly obvious about their romance when they went “Instagram official,” after Jennifer Lopez shared a photo of them kissing, while in celebration of her birthday during a very special weekend in St. Tropez.
