Ben Affleck is gushing over girlfriend Jennifer Lopez in a rare comment to Adweek.
The publication is honouring Jennifer with their Brand Visionary Award, reports E! News, and Ben, who rekindled his romance with the star earlier this year says: "All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of colour approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them."
He adds: "I am in awe of what Jennifer's effect on the world is."
The couple, who walked the red carpet together at the Venice Film Festival – their first since their 2003 Gigli premiere – and cosied up to one another again days later at the 2021 Met Gala, seem to be going strong. People reports the two are planning on spending the holidays together.
"Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country," The Last Duel actor continues. "That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect."
