Neither Reese nor Chris ever confirmed a relationship.

After celebrating their relationship in her "Jenny from the Block" music video, Lopez and Affleck got engaged in 2002, postponed their 2003 wedding days before they were set to walk down the aisle, then officially split by January 2004.

They also starred in Jersey Girl and the critically-panned Gigli together during their time together.

In 2018, Lopez herself compared the scrutiny of her relationship with Affleck to her current engagement to baseball legend Alex Rodriguez.

"It was actually worse then," Lopez told InStyle of the frenzy surrounding "Bennifer."

"It was just crazy," Lopez added of the media circus. "Now at least I can show you who I am a little bit. Back then you just believed anything you read on the cover of a tabloid. Many times it wasn't true, or it was like a third of the truth."

The entertainer conceded that with the pressures of social media, it's difficult to be a celebrity in 2018 — "but they didn't live through the tabloid era," she said.

In fact, Lopez believed social media has actually strengthened her relationship with Rodriguez, which PEOPLE confirmed in March 2017.

"Now people get to see that this guy they thought was this hard-nosed athlete is, like, a goofy dad who loves his kids and celebrates his girlfriend," she said of their romance, which they've documented online.
