Ben Affleck: Relationship With J.Lo Was The Worst Time Of My Life

In the latest edition of Details Magazine, Ben Affleck finally opens up a bit about the years where he dated — and almost married! — Jennifer Lopez, and the movie they made together Gigli!

Of course, it sounds like the Argo star actually wishes he could erase that time of his life from his and everyone else’s memory as he literally says that the lowest points of his life were years he spent alongside J.Lo, in front and behind the camera. Daaaaaamn! That’s frosty!

In his interview, he was incredibly blunt about his feelings, sharing:

“[It] was definitely the annus horribilis. I got shorthanded as That Guy — Jennifer Lopez, movies bombed, therefore he must be a sort of thoughtless dilettante, solipsistic consumer, blah blah blah.”


Throwing shade at Jennifer aside, we can see where he’s coming from that it would be absolutely exhausting being labeled like that. It took him quite a while to climb out of that slump! But, we feel like they’re both in a better place now — and that they both learned from it! So, in the end, we vote that it was worth it. Besides, what would life be like without Gigli?

Are you glad that Ben Affleck didn’t end up marrying J.Lo? OR, do you think they would have made a remarkable couple? Feel free to shout out your thoughts via the comment box below!

Mariah Carey Confirmed To Take J.Lo’s Place In ‘American Idol’

Lopez, out. Carey, in. One pop diva will replace another on American Idol next season as Mariah Carey said Monday she’s signed on as a judge.

The deal was announced with show biz flair at the Television Critics Association summer tour in Beverly Hills during comments by Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly about the exodus of Idol judges. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have both quit, and Randy Jackson is said to be on the bubble.


“We do, in fact, have one judge whose deal closed very, very recently,” Reilly told reporters at the Beverly Hilton. “It’s an artist that many contestants have tried to emulate, have tried to have sung the songs, have tried to hit the notes and because it really was concluded only hours ago, our judge couldn’t be with us.”

He then put a phone call on speaker phone, and Carey’s voice could be heard: ”I am so excited to be joining Idol,” she said. “First of all, I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there to tell you, but I think you know this all kind of just happened real quickly, so I can’t wait to get started in a couple months.”

Will Mariah Carey be just like J.Lo as an ‘Idol’ judge? Or would she be a tad different? Tell us about your expectations for the new American Idol judge!

Steven Tyler To Quit ‘American Idol

Steven Tyler is going back to his day job. After two seasons as a judge on American Idol, the Aerosmith frontman says he won’t be returning to the reality show and will, instead, be focusing once again on his band.

“After some long … hard … thoughts … I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” the rocker said in a statement Thursday. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.”

Tyler’s announcement comes amid continued chatter that Jennifer Lopez will not be returning to the popular Fox show. “I am thinking that it’s time for me to go,” she recently said about tackling a third season.


In making his departure announcement, Tyler also reveals that Aerosmith is releasing a new album on Nov. 6. And he feels revitalized: ”The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass,” he says in his statement. “Idol was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it. … Now it’s time to bring rock back.” And his decision is supported by Idol‘s producers.

What do you like most about Steven Tyler as an ‘Idol’ judge? Do you prefer him to be rockin’ and rollin’ with Aerosmith over being an ‘Idol’ judge? Share your thoughts with us in the comment box below!

J. Lo Calls American Idol Results ‘Crazy’

American Idol‘s lucky seven had a mostly fantastic night on Wednesday. But when everyone does well, it only makes elimination night harder.

It’s true that top contenders at this point in the competition have been eliminated. It happened to Jennifer Hudson, who performed “Think Like a Man” with Ne-Yo on Thursday. Then again, it also happened to Sanjaya Malakar. Ryan called the contestants out one by one and divided them in two groups: Hollie Cavanagh, Phillip Phillips and Colton Dixon on one side of the stage and Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone and Joshua Ledet on the other.  Well, Skylar was declared safe. Then, Ryan put her with Hollie, Phillip and Colton, meaning the four of them would be back next week.

“I’ve never seen this happen,” an irate Randy Jackson said of having two frontrunners – Jessica and Joshua – in the bottom with Elise. “This is a ridiculous bottom three … [America] got it wrong tonight, so wrong.”


He was even more appalled when Jessica, who has yet to miss a step this season, was announced to be the contestant with the lowest number of votes.  While Jessica performed her last-chance song, the judges stormed the stage and stopped her. Jennifer Lopez shouted, “Gimme that mic! This is crazy … you ain’t going home! Go sit down!”

Then Randy made it official: “We are saving Jessica without any doubt,” he said, “This girl is one of the best singers in America ever!”

Was Jessica surprised to be at risk to leave the show in seventh place? “Not at all,” she told Ryan. “I don’t expect anything. I just do what I do. Whatever happens happens. I just want people to know I’ve been working hard my whole life.”

J.Lo’s Generous Gift For Beau’s 25th Birthday

No doubt about it: 25 is a big birthday. And when you’re Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend, prepare for a serious celebration.

According to People magazine, the superstar bought her beau, Casper Smart, a customized white Dodge Ram pick-up truck. A source told the magazine, “Jennifer had planned a fun day to celebrate Casper’s birthday, adding, she “knew that Casper really wanted a truck, and Casper was very excited about the generous gift.”


With a gift like that, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be his best birthday yet. Smart immediately made use of the practical present by driving himself and Lopez to his birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood, where they were joined by friends. A photo of the two in Casper’s new ride shows the couple all smiles.

Comments on the Web were mixed about J. Lo’s generosity. While one fan worried, “Honestly, doesn’t she want a man who doesn’t depend on her money. She’s buying him.” “It was very nice for her to buy the current beau a truck.” Another applauded, “good for her for doing what she wants.” Another agreed, “She is HAPPY and thats what matters.”

The ”American Idol” judge was first spotted with the back-up dancer in the fall of last year, after her split with husband Marc Anthony.
