Jennifer Lopez Coyly Side-Stepped a Question About Ben Affleck
Nothing going on here.
Lopez made an appearance on the TODAY Show on Tuesday to promote the re-release of her single "Love Make the World" with Lin-Manuel Miranda, which marks the five-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
During the interview, TODAY'S Hoda Kotb couldn't resist sliding in a question about Affleck, telling Lopez that she looks "happier."
"I'm always happy when you see me, Hoda," Lopez laughed.
"Every time I see a picture of you and Ben [Affleck] — 'she looks happier,'" Kotb said as photos of Lopez and Affleck appeared on the screen. "Are we happier?"
"The song is out, five years since we've done it," Lopez said after a pause. "And I believe that that message of loving one another and coming together and love, is never more relevant than it is right now."
"Wait, it's me you're talking to, you know that," Kotb replied.
"I know," Lopez said. "You can call me. You have my number!"
Lopez and Affleck were recently spotted looking at homes together in the Los Angeles area, following news that the singer would be relocating to the west coast full-time. Though she hasn't discussed the reunion on all our minds, Lopez did discuss her recent happiness, telling Apple Music's Zane Lowe, "I'm super happy. I know people are always wondering. 'How are you? What's going on? Are you OK?' This is it. I've never been better."
"I want my people who care about me, because I care about them so much, to know that I've really gotten to a place in my life where I'm great on my own," she shared. "And I think once you get to that place, then amazing things happen to you that you never imagine in your life happening again. And so that is where I'm at."
