Amid what appears to be the rise of Bennifer once more, the Today Show has sought out perspective from resident Ben Affleck expert: Matt Damon.

Damon was making an appearance on the show to promote his new movie, Stillwater, when host Savannah Guthrie cut to the quick with the topic on everyone's minds: Affleck's apparent reunion with ex Jennifer Lopez.

"We need to talk about something," Guthrie told Damon before a photo of Damon's best friend with Lopez flashed on the screen.

"How do you like them apples?" she asked.

Damon chuckled, attempting to deflect: "There's not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that."

"I just heard you guys," he said. "I was sitting here waiting to come on TV. It's the first time I heard about it."

Eventually, though, even Damon had to admit that the potential of a Bennifer comeback is "fascinating."

"It's a fascinating story. I hope it's true. I love them both. I hope it's true. That would be awesome," he said.

From your lips to their ears, Mr. Damon.

Just after Affleck and Lopez were photographed together in Montana, TMZ reported that Affleck began emailing his ex-fiancée as early as February, allegedly telling her how beautiful she looked after he saw photos of her in the Dominican Republic and expressing that he wished he could be there with her. 

Lopez apparently loved Affleck's writing, with one email reportedly including a line about the him "being able to 'own her heart' with his pen."
