Ben Affleck’s best friend, Matt Damon, was certain from the start that Ben would face issues in his marriage to Jennifer Lopez, according to insiders cited by the Daily Mail.

“Matt tried to warn Ben when he started dating J. Lo again that this might happen. Matt was there to help Ben pull himself together after their first breakup and felt it would happen again,” an insider said.

Damon advised Ben to focus on his work rather than Lopez’s projects.

When everything started falling apart, Matt told Ben that he supported any choice he made but wanted him to buckle down and focus on his work. Ben spent a lot of time focusing on J. Lo’s projects, just like the first time.

Matt asked Ben, ‘What has she done for your career?’

The insider claims Ben has always listened to Matt, whom he has been friends with for many years, partly because he admires Matt’s strong marriage: Damon has been married to Luciana Barroso since 2005.

Matt Damon also tried to prevent Ben from drinking again amid his marital problems.

“Matt is Ben’s only real friend. He didn’t let him start drinking again and was there to make sure he stayed sober,” the source claims.

According to insiders, Ben is supported not only by his best friend but also by his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, with whom he co-parents their three children.

It became known when Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck realized that their union was falling apart. In Touch writes about this.

“Filming her documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told was a real revelation for them,” an insider recounts.

In one scene, the Oscar-winning actor admitted how shocked he was to learn that during the work on her album, This Is Me… Now, the singer had given songwriters the love letters he had once written to her.

“Things that are private, I always considered sacred and special partly because they are private,” Ben noted.

Jennifer admitted she understands her husband’s feelings on this matter, but he accepts her stardom.

“But he loves me, he knows I’m an artist, and he will support me in every possible way because he knows he can’t stop me,” the artist said.

However, the celebrities began speculating that they shouldn’t be together after this.

Jennifer Lopez, 54, and Ben Affleck, 51, are doing everything they can to save their marriage, which their excessive publicity has threatened. However, their close ones report that the couple cannot agree on this issue: Ben cannot stand the undue attention, while Jennifer, on the contrary, enjoys it.
