Lopez and Affleck wed in Las Vegas – 17 years on

Published

on

Hollywood stars Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have got married in Las Vegas, Lopez has confirmed.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” she wrote on her website.

The nuptials come 17 years after they called off their first engagement.

News of the couple getting back together last year sent fans into a spin, as they publicly displayed their rekindled love on social media.

The Clark County Clerk’s Office in Nevada – where Las Vegas is located – shows on its record system that Jennifer Lopez will change her name to Jennifer Affleck.

Writing on her OntheJLo website, she said the couple had flown to Las Vegas on Saturday and queued for a marriage licence alongside four other couples.

“They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love’,” she wrote.

“We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to.”

The pair met on the set of the movie Gigli in 2002, and got engaged in 2003, but broke it off the following year, blaming “excessive media attention”.

However since getting back together, they have regularly posted photos and videos online of romantic holidays and moments with their families – prompting fans to nickname the couple Bennifer.

During their time apart, Lopez was engaged several times and also married to singer Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014. They have two children together. This will be her fourth marriage.

Meanwhile Affleck was married to actor Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018, and they have three children together.

His was the sole Emmy win for Sweet Tooth, which was nominated for 11 awards.

Speaking to RNZ from Los Angeles, Garbett said Sweet Tooth was “a really great story with universal appeal”.

“It was a pleasure being able to be a part of telling it. New Zealand has a huge wealth of film making talent, having it recognised in this way is just brilliant.”

Sweet Tooth was filmed entirely in Aotearoa and many Auckland locations, including the Winter Gardens in Auckland Domain, are recognisable to series viewers. The third season of the show is expected in 2024.

“Filming is always a series of challenges. We had a really harmonious team, so we worked our way through it and we’re all still friends at the end,” Garbett said.

His career to date includes working on a wide variety of shorts, series and films, including the David Bain drama Black Hands, and horror film Evil Dead Rise.

“I finished high school with no idea what I wanted to do,” Garbett said.

“I decided to go to film school just because my mate was. I’ve been in it ever since and I love it! It has taken me far and wide and continues to provide variety and keep my working life interesting.”
