Fans slam 'awkward' interview with Jennifer Lopez after she’s asked about marriage with Ben Affleck

Fans slam 'awkward' interview with Jennifer Lopez after she’s asked about marriage with Ben Affleck

'Bennifer' tied the knot in Las Vegas in July 2022

With paparazzi following their every move and their relationship status consistently splashed across the headlines, it's really no surprise that the majority of A-list celebs prefer to remain tight-lipped about their love lives.

After all, who wants millions of fans from across the globe chiming in with their often damning verdicts on the person you choose to be with?

With that in mind, fans of musician and actor Jennifer Lopez are flocking to support her this morning following a cringe-worthy interview she gave with Variety Magazine on the red carpet of the Golden Globes last night.

The 'Jenny from the Block' hitmaker, 54, attended the star-studded ceremony to support her actor and director husband Ben Affleck, whose movie Air was nominated for numerous awards.

Catching up with a Variety reporter on the red carpet, however, it looks as though J. Lo didn't expect to be bombarded with a hoard of questions about her love life in an interview that has since been branded as 'awkward' by viewers.

The interviewer appeared to make a remark about her previous four nuptials before asking how she knew her current marriage to Affleck, 51, 'is it'.

The interview has been slammed as 'awkward'.

"Because when they say, 'You know,' you know'," Jennifer gave a visibly flustered answer.

"And other times when you didn't know… you also didn't know," she then said with a laugh.

"I think you always go in with the best of intentions every single time that you ever leap into anything. I do, anyway. Not just in my personal life but in my professional life, too."

Since the thorny exchange was posted to Variety's official X account last night, hundreds of viewers have since slammed the viewer for his arguably inappropriate line of questioning.

"This interview was so embarrassing and awkward - if I was J Lo I would have walked away", one social media viewer penned last night.

Another added: "The questioning here was so cringe."

"I thought this was cringe to watch too. Why would you ask her that? She answered graciously but not cool," a third went on.

Another hit out: "Disrespectful unprofessional interviewer".

Actor and filmmaker Affleck is J. Lo's fourth husband, after she was married to Cuban waiter Ojani Noa from February 1997 to January 1998, Cris Judd, her former backup dancer, from September 2001 to January 2003, and singer Marc Anthony from June 2004 to June 2014.

Jennifer welcomed fraternal twins, a boy and a girl, with Anthony during their marriage.

She previously dated father-of-three Affleck - who shares his children with ex-wife Jennifer Garner - on-and-off between mid-2002 to early 2004, describing their split as her 'first real heartbreak'.

"I think different time, different thing, who knows what could've happened, but there was a genuine love there," J. Lo previously said of their relationship.

It's no surprise, therefore, that fans of the celebrity couple were elated to discover back in April 2021 that 'Bennifer' were seeing each other again.

They tied the knot in an intimate Las Vegas wedding in July 2022, before welcoming their friends and family for a celebratory soiree a month later.
