Ben Affleck was ‘taken aback’ by Jennifer Lopez exposing his private love letters to pals

Ben Affleck was “taken aback” when his wife, Jennifer Lopez, shared with songwriters the private love letters he wrote her to serve as inspiration for her upcoming album, “This Is Me … Now.”

Per Variety, in a preview for her forthcoming Amazon Prime documentary, “This Is Me … Now: A Love Story,” Lopez had invited musicians to their home and gave them access to Affleck’s love letters, which he titled “The Greatest Love Story Never Told.”

Ironically, the “Gone Girl” actor walked in at that very moment and was surprised to see the letters being passed around.

“I did really find the beauty and the poetry and the irony in the fact that it’s the greatest love story never told,” Affleck, 51, said to the camera.

“If you’re making a record about it, that seems kind of like telling it.” 

The “Selena” actress, 54, had previously teased the existence of her husband’s romantic letters.

In another teaser of the movie released in November, the mom of two was filmed holding a letter dated Dec. 24, 2002, which appeared to be from Affleck.

“Life’s tough but you’re sweet,” the note read. “Thanks for the gift. Hope you like the flowers. You told me you could never have enough. I believe you.”

It was also signed, “B.”

The couple tied the knot in July 2022.

Lopez — who wed her “Gigli” co-star in Vegas in July 2022 — previously said the project would be the “most honest thing she’s done.

“People think they know things about what happened to me along the way — but they really have no idea, and a lot of times they get it so wrong,” she told Vogue in November 2022.

“There’s a part of me that was hiding a side of myself from everyone.”

“This Is Me … Now: A Love Story” documentary is set to be released on Feb. 27 on Amazon Prime. Her album comes out Feb. 16.
