The Argo star once said he “felt suffocated, miserable and gross” during his relationship with the “I’m Real” singer and blamed the relationship for hurting his career, but overall, he has said nothing but positive things about her. Even after the split, the pair continued to support each other. During an interview in February 2020, he revealed that they have stayed in contact with one another through the years. The actor expressed his support for Lopez’s acting career and shared that she should have gotten an Oscar nomination for her role in 2019’s Hustlers. “She should have been nominated. She’s the real thing,” Affleck told New York Times reporter Brooks Barnes. “I keep in touch periodically with her and have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That’s fucking baller.”
