Neither Lopez nor Affleck have publicly commented on the relationship, but Affleck told Extra TV that he's “really happy.”

According to Extra’s Jenn Lajhmers, Affleck began by commenting on his working relationship with the iconic George Clooney, who directed the film.

“Working for George was a real treat, so it’s a time in my career that is surprisingly kind of fruitful… I kind of lucked into this… Very grateful, so yes, I am happy," he explained.

He continued: “I’m very happy. It is a very happy time in my life. Life is good. I love this movie, and ‘The Last Duel,’ October 15, which I am really proud of.”

While he attended his movie premiere solo, Affleck and Lopez previously turned heads when they made their couple debut at the Venice Film Festival before attending the Met Gala together.

“The Tender Bar” is a coming-of-age drama, which is an adaptation of a 2005 memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer. It focuses on a young boy looking to fill a void left by his father with patrons he talks up at a local bar.

It premieres in L.A. and New York City on December 17, before hitting theaters nationwide on December 22. It will be followed by an Amazon Prime release on January 7.

Maybe pop by Ben’s place with your Amazon Prime login and give him some company.
