Ben Affleck and JLo in Venice: first official appearance after the love comeback – people

It’s almost like no time has passed.

It is one of the greatest Hollywood love comebacks of all time: Ben Affleck (49) and Jennifer Lopez (52) are daring a new beginning 17 years after the separation and the broken engagement – and it not only makes their hearts beat faster.

Since they made their relationship public, they have been licking Bennifer fans’ fingers for everything that romance has to offer: first kiss, first vacation, first couple photo on Instagram – or, like now in Venice, the first joint appearance as a couple .

At the premiere of his film “The Last Duel” with Matt Damon (50), Affleck appeared in Venice with his new old flame JLo! He in a dark blue suit and aviator glasses, she in a fitted black dress with fine white stripes and white stilettos.

They held hands lovingly as they passed the journalists and photographers. Ben – quite the gentleman – naturally helped his Jennifer into the boat.

In the evening they both appeared like the bride and groom – she in a white robe with a deep cleavage, he in a chic suit with a bow tie.
