Jennifer Lopez has looked youthful and lean for decades. Her husband, Ben Affleck, recently revealed some upsetting news that “Jenny from the Block” can “appear to be 20 years old” without having to diet. In an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show, the Air director told the host he’s going to share “something that’s going to upset you” after she asks whether they have a “cheat drawer” of snacks in their home.
Seemingly in awe over Lopez’s physique at 53, Affleck declares, “Jennifer just eats whatever she wants. Whatever she wants. Pizza, cookies, ice cream. Everything.” In visible shock, Drew Barrymore asks, “Is it the working out?”
J-Lo’s Secret To Youth
Affleck, 50, let Drew know that even though she works out, it doesn’t explain her youthfulness. “I mean, I work out, too! But I don’t magically appear to be 20 years old! You know what I mean? With perfect skin. There’s no taking away the work ethic. The work ethic is real, the discipline is very real. But also, the superhuman thing is real. She’s the most gorgeous woman in the world. She looks spectacular.”
As Barrymore, 48, sunk into her seat from swooning, she tells Ben, “This is me living vicariously through romance and men appreciating women and all of it.”
On Twitter, fans swooned with Drew of Ben’s love for J-Lo. One fan wrote, “He is just in LOVE and I’m here for it.” Another said, “He called her the most gorgeous woman in the world.” One person commented, “Love me a man who loves his wife this much.” Another praised Ben, writing, “Ben hyping his wifey! We love to hear it.” Another fan said, “Ain’t love Grand.”
As we recently reported, Ben is his wife’s biggest supporter. Earlier this month, he called J-Lo “the greatest performer in the history of the world.” In the face of his wife’s “many, many accomplishments,” Affleck said it “takes a big man not to feel inadequate.” He added, “I don’t feel bad about myself.”
