We're taking you back to the early 2000s as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's romance heats up!

The famous exes are back together 17 years after announcing their split and calling off their engagement – most recently, they enjoyed a rather "affectionate" night out at the Pendry Hotel in West Hollywood, where they dined with JLo's manager Benny Medina and movie producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas.

"Ben had his arm around Jennifer at dinner and they weren't shy about being affectionate," an eyewitness tells E! News. "He looked great and seemed very happy. She also looked happy and kept leaning into him."

The A-listers left hand-in-hand while a source close to the Hustlers star says: "She's crazy about Ben. He spoils her with love and is very witty and charming. He's a man's man, and she finds him so attractive and strong. She's in it for the long term and sees her future with him."

Speaking to People, a second source adds that the two are "slowly starting to talk about the future". "This is not a casual relationship," they say. "They are taking it seriously and want it to be long-lasting."
