​Jennifer Lopez Says Ben Affleck Was Her First Big Heartbreak

Jennifer Lopez talks about her first major heartbreak

Despite having been married twice before, Jennifer Lopez said her heart was never truly broken until Ben Affleck came along.

The Gigli actor broke up with Lopez after the two were engaged in January 2004, and J. Lo took it hard! But she rebounded quickly with Marc Anthony, marrying him in June 2004!

The 45-year-old entertainer talked to Maria Shriver about that whole time in her life, explaining:

"Right, you're absolutely right. It was probably my first big heartbreak, and to have one of my best friends who I'd known for years, who I actually love and did have chemistry with, come into my life and say, 'I'm here'…What you need to know is, nobody can save you or heal you. Only you can do that for you."

It sounds like Miz Lopez has learned a lot from those relationships, and even her latest with Casper Smart! She addressed that breakup too, saying:

"I'm open to love, but right now, I think it's better to just be on my own for a minute and learn more about myself."

Kudos, Jennifer! Because at the end of the day, the person we all spend the most time with is ourselves!

If she's happy, then we're happy for her!

    I LOATHE Ben after their break up!
    He abandoned her just before marriage, he broke her heart, he drank and gambled, he blamed her for everything HE screwed up and never defended or respected her after… i mean what kind of low life sleazy coward behaves like this to a woman he claimed he once loved??!!
    He is the WORST. I really want to read her book and see if there are any details of the infamous Bennifer era!

    Ben dodged a major bullet, if he married that high maintenance mess they would have ended up divorced….

    She was out of her league. She should be grateful for the time they had together.

    Considering that Ben is married now, I find it very inappropriate and disrespectful for her to make public comments about their past relationship.

    Re: Leigh – Ben A is big time-she's just barely hanging on to what recognition she has left. It's called name-dropping.

    Interesting since she was married TWICE before that PLUS dated Puffy…right? Surprising.

    made it on every entertainment venue. Broken hearts, that's what life is all about!
