Ben Affleck cries at Jennifer Lopez’s birthday dinner in Paris
Deep water works.
Ben Affleck was seen crying during his new wife Jennifer Lopez’s 53rd birthday celebration in Paris over the weekend.
The 49-year-old ‘Deep Water’ star was pictured Sunday night with a flushed face and looked visibly emotional during a conversation with Lopez.
The couple was having a romantic dinner at the gourmet restaurant La Girafe, located on the Place du Trocadéro facing the Eiffel Tower.
At one point, Lopez was seen consoling his new bride in a tender moment captured on camera.
The ‘Marry Me’ star gently grabbed Affleck’s face close to his chest in an effort to console him.
Reps didn’t immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on what could have caused the “Armageddon” star to be in such an emotional state.
However, it appears Affleck’s waterworks were tears of joy as he and Lopez were spotted sharing a few laughs moments after the “Argo” director got emotional.
According to the photo agency, after Lopez blew out her candles, the couple returned to their hotel. However, they crossed paths with a fan who gave them a little light-up Eiffel Tower just before they did.
The newlyweds dressed chic for their date in all black. Affleck wore a suit with a white button-up shirt that was slightly open at the neckline, and Lopez opted for a sexy jumpsuit with cutouts that she accessorized with a chunky pearl necklace.
The ‘Good Will Hunting’ star and the ‘Selena’ actress spent the past week in the City of Love to celebrate not only Lopez’s birthday, but also their recent nuptials.
The couple were photographed kissing like teenagers in the middle of a walk near the Elysée. During this outing, the smitten duo were seen cozying up on a bench and kissing each other.
Earlier Sunday, ahead of Lopez’s birthday dinner, they were spotted holding each other as they sight-seeed walking past the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and the courtyard of the Louvre.
Affleck and Lopez tied the knot on July 16 at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. The low-key wedding will be followed by a lavish multi-day affair, Page Six previously reported.
A source tells us close friends and family including Casey Affleck, Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel and Lopez’s ‘Shades of Blue’ co-star Drea de Matteo will be attending the party, which is expected to take place at Affleck’s 87-acre property in Riceboro, Ga.
Lopez and Affleck’s union comes after they reunited in April 2020, nearly two decades after calling off their first engagement in 2004.
Although Lopez married Marc Anthony and had two children with him, her mother, Guadalupe Rodriguez, recently shared that Affleck has always been her daughter’s only “true love”.
