Ben Affleck Says Jennifer Lopez Romance Caused His Worst Year Ever

Remember “Bennifer” and the box office disaster that was Gigli?

Long before she was an American Idol judge, and back when current beau Casper Smart was still high school-aged, Jennifer Lopez dated actor Ben Affleck and was even engaged to him.

In a new interview with Details, Ben discussed his latest film, titled Argo, and also found time to dredge up his infamous romance with J.Lo.

“If you were looking at that one-liner on me in 2003, which was definitely the annus horribilis of my life,” he quipped.

Ben, who now has three kids with wife Jennifer Garner, admitted he understands why people still dwell on that period of his life.

“I made a bunch of movies that didn't work. I was ending up in the tabloids. I don't know what the lesson is, except that you just have to find your compass... People bring up 2003, and I get it. Jennifer Lopez and Gigli — and all this sh*t just kind of blew up.”

We just have to wonder what J.Lo thinks of this brazen diss and dismiss!
