Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s summer of spending practically every day together has led into an autumn apart because of work. A source explained to E! that despite the distance, Bennifer really is still thriving. Lopez is shooting Netflix thriller The Mother in Vancouver, Canada, while Affleck is working on Robert Rodriguez’s Hypnotic in Austin, Texas.
How are they making it work? Exactly how you’d imagine two wealthy, A-list stars would: regular visits.
“They are both filming during the week on location, but they have met up whenever possible,” the source told E!. “Ben has been in L.A., and J.Lo flew in from Vancouver to spend time with him. They hung out at his house and then left for the airport together on Sunday night. J.Lo has had her kids visit her in Vancouver, but she is also coming back and forth to L.A.”
“They are working out their schedules so that they can be sure to see each other every few days,” the source added. “Things are good between them, and they are staying connected. They are busy with their projects, but also making time to be together.”
Earlier this month, Affleck spoke for the first time about how he’s been doing since he and Lopez reconciled. Extra asked the actor about his headspace, and Affleck’s response was just glowing: “I’m very happy,” he started. “It is a very happy time in my life. Life is good. I love this movie [The Tender Bar], and The Last Duel, October 15, which I am really proud of.”
