aughts are back. And with it comes a revival of one of 2000’s favorite couples: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck (aka Bennifer 2.0).
It’s been a while, so here’s a refresher: Jin and Ben first met after filming jigli In 2002 what a time. J.Lo celebrated her love with her song “Dear Ben” on It’s me and was also in the “Jenny From The Block” music video. Then they got engaged later that year. But, just a few days before the epic weddings happened, they called off it. Soon, they completely ended their relationship. Since then, both have married, had children, and divorced. Fast forward to 2021, and J.Lo nearly married Alex Rodriguez, while Ben dated Ana de Armas. After their split, Jane and Ben re-ignite their spark.
Nearly 20 years since the power couple broke up, no one has seen Bennifer 2.0 coming, but like top trends, it’s been a hit. Apparently, the couple thought so, too, because the PDA was on full display. (Hey, no one is mad about that.)
In fact, it’s a good thing, and that comes from someone who knows everything There’s something to know about public displays of affection, Karen Donaldson. The body language expert has taken a look at the couple’s movements since they got back together, and all signs point to a smooth sailing aboard this ship. The thing is, they’ve called it quits before, so Donaldson analyzed their gestures to determine if they were in this for the long haul. Find all its conclusions in the future.

They are as close to each other as ever.
“When we hold our hands in this way, we try to maximize the amount of skin contact with the other person, so that we are as close to each other as possible,” Donaldson says.
Sure, J Lo and Ben are smiling as she looks at him with that adorable look, but their hands are the biggest gift. Palm-to-palm touch, Donaldson says, and the connection of fingers to someone join some of the most sensitive parts of our bodies. Additionally, “research shows that touch, such as holding hands, releases oxytocin, the feel-good hormone,” says Donaldson.
Despite the paparazzi around them, Ben and Jennifer In fact Are these taken together and not just run for cameras.
All of them at this time.
Donaldson says that the lack of space between pairs means they are attached to each other: “[Jennifer and Ben] Hip to hip and thigh to thigh with no space between them, showing their deep connection.”
On top of that, Ben’s arms dangle on J Lo’s shoulders, which Donaldson calls a big protective move. “This kind of hug provides reassurance,” she explains. “The way J. Lo Bin hugs around his lower back is kind of intimate and romantic, telling us that she feels comfortable in his presence.”
When they are together, they make being present a priority.
Once again, they are all pressed against each other, and Donaldson is the best. Since you already know what that body language means, Donaldson focuses on analyzing Jane and Ben’s closed eyes.
“When people close their eyes when kissing, it allows them to focus on and be fully in the moment,” she says. At the Met Gala – where they were surrounded by tons of celebrities and paparazzi – Jennifer and Ben had a moment for themselves. And given how closely related they are (remember: the lack of distance between their bodies tells us that), this is probably something they do a lot.
After all these years, they are still balancing each other.
“In this photo, J. Lo takes the lead when walking,” Donaldson points out. It’s also a big sign that her hand is covering Ben. This tells Donaldson that JLo takes over when their relationship needs it.
Donaldson could also tell that Ben would likely do the same to her, due to the look of hesitation on J Lo’s face. “She’s looking for Ben’s reassurance at this moment,” Donaldson says. “Ben’s stature is erect, his chest is open, and his facial expressions tell us that he’s ready to defend.”
Ben is proud to be back with Jennifer.
“Ben has a confident attitude as he shows up with his hand in his pocket, telling us he is confident in his relationship with J. Law,” according to Donaldson.
By touching little Jennifer’s back, Ben is showing affection and desire—something he wants everyone watching them to know he feels for JLo. He is proud that they are back together. (I mean, wouldn’t you be if you were in his position?!)
