The year was 2002. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were two of the biggest stars in the world, and their engagement in November of that year only catapulted them further into the stratosphere of fame as the couple cloyingly labeled “Bennifer.”
Now, the year is 2021. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are still two of the biggest stars in the world, and their recent rumored get-together — reported Friday (April 30) by Page Six — has Twitter thinking it’s the early 2000s all over again.
Of course, there’s no actual confirmation that this relationship — which ended in January 2004 — is being rekindled. But the mere thought of a Bennifer reunion, in the wake of reported breakups for both stars (a broken engagement with Alex Rodriguez for her, a split from actress Ana De Armas for him) is almost too much for Twitter to handle.
