Matt Damon is thrilled about his longtime friend Ben Affleck’s relationship with Jennifer Lopez. A source recently told ET, “Ben and Jen are doing so well and are happier than they have ever been. Ben’s in a great place and he really is Jen’s biggest fan. He loves being with her and working with her too.”
The source added that Damon “loves Jen and thinks she is the best thing that has happened to Ben. Matt is glad Ben is so happy. Things are going great for Ben, both career-wise and in his personal life. He feels like he can and will do anything he wants to accomplish in life now that he has Jen backing him and supporting him.”
Bennifer 2.0’s relationship has been great for both their individual health and their family’s happiness, the source said. “He is working out and feels good. His kids love him with Jen and like her kids too. They are one big happy family.” After getting married last July, the couple is focusing on spending time with the family this year.
“They are planning some trips together this summer with the kids and hopefully one to two trips on their own so that they can be together just the two of them and relax,” the source said. “They both love to stay busy and work, but know it’s important to take a step back, enjoy their time as husband and wife, and be well-rounded and healthy. They remind each other of this when one of them is about to book a new project and fills the other one in. It’s a way to help them set boundaries and put each other and their family first.”
As we previously reported, Affleck is his wife’s biggest supporter. Last month, he called J-Lo “the greatest performer in the history of the world.” In the face of his wife’s “many, many accomplishments,” Affleck said it “takes a big man not to feel inadequate.” He added, “I don’t feel bad about myself.”
