But Ben was much kinder about his former flame when speaking to The Hollywood Reporter recently, saying “We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, ‘Oh, your movie looks great.'”
Ben added, “I remember when she got American Idol. I said: 'This was really smart. Good luck.' I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful.”
Successful could be an understatement, as J.Lo was declared the most powerful celebrity in the world earlier this year. Maybe Ben got a new e-mail from Jennifer reminding him of that fact?
