She recently posed in front of a 'Don't F With JLO' billboard in Hollywood shortly after her fellow co-star stated both Jennifer and Ben were 'very much in love' as the actress prepared to film the project.

Her castmate, Sterling K. Brown, recently talked to Entertainment Weekly and revealed, 'Every once in a while, Ben would read the lines for Smith,' referencing to one of the characters.

'And I think the newlyweds, still very much in love, I think she just wanted to hear his voice,' he added.

'And so sometimes, the reactions that you got from her were because she was listening to her husband's voice.'

It was revealed earlier this week that Lopez had banned questions pertaining to Ben Affleck at Atlas premieres, per TMZ.

However, during a press conference in Mexico on Wednesday, a reporter asked the star point blank about the split rumors, and asked her if the speculation was 'real.'

In response, Jennifer had simply responded with, 'You know better than that,' with her co-star Simu Liu also adding, 'Don't come in here with that energy, please.'

The Barbie star later added during the press conference, 'If I could just end on one thing.'

'Jen is a producer on this movie and the reason why I'm here and the reason why Sterling was in this beautiful movie was because Jen cares. Jen cares about things like representation and diversity - and she's a boss!'

In regards to the rumors, Affleck's close friend, Jason Mewes, also weighed in and told TMZ on Thursday that he does not 'believe' the speculation and gossip.

He commented on their wedding in 2022 and expressed to the outlet that, 'It seemed very sincere and real.'

Mewes also opened up about Ben staying at the Brentwood mansion amidst filming his latest movie, The Accountant 2, and explained that the actor, 'may not want random people coming in out of the house while rehearsing.'

A source recently told Page Six that Affleck has 'come to his senses' when it comes to his relationship with Lopez. 'If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would.'

The insider added, 'He feels like the last two years was just a fever dream, and he's come to his senses now and understands there is just no way this is going to work.'

However, a separate source told People, 'They just have very different approaches when it comes to media attention. Ben hates all attention and it makes him very uncomfortable. Jennifer has always had a different approach.'

The insider explained that Ben has 'always been impressed' when it comes to her work ethic and openness to showing her life, such as on social media.

'Even though he admires that about her, it doesn't make him happy and causes stress in his life and then in hers. There is no question their different styles clash.'

Another source explained, 'After a while it causes tension in the relationship. He is more introspective and private.'

'She likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world. This makes them considerably different, and it has been difficult in the day-to-day relationship.'

However, the source added that despite their differences, 'nothing has stopped their love over the years. This is a great love story.'

On recent outings, both Lopez and Affleck have been spotted wearing their wedding rings.

Last weekend, the pair reunited when they were seen leaving together in his sleek BMW after attending a movie event at the Aero Theatre in Brentwood. Their children as well as Jennifer Garner had also been spotted at the venue.

The couple held smiles on their faces as they departed the theater, and were also both seen sporting their wedding rings.

While pulling away, Affleck was also seen holding his smartphone in his hand, and a photo of Lopez could be seen on the screen along with the name 'Jennifer Affleck.'
