Affleck, 49, tagged along with Lopez when she visited the Latina-owned bookstore, Lit Bar, in New York City days before the start of Hispanic Heritage Month.
The 52-year old was there as part of her new mission-driven platform, Limitless Labs, to highlight Latina entrepreneurs and graduates of Goldman Sachs' 10,000 Small Businesses Program.
Speaking to a crowd gathered outside of the event, the “Justice League” star, who had stepped out for a smoke break, shared that he was there with “my girl.”
The Bronx-born beauty was excited to be back in her old stomping grounds, writing on Instagram that she was “Back home in the Bronx!! Thank you to all the incredible Latina entrepreneurs for sharing your stories and letting me share mine with you yesterday!”
Lopez continued, saying that she was inspired “more than you will ever know. Remember, we’re not asking for a seat at the table… we’re the CEOs at the table!”
This weekend, Affleck’s famous ex Gwyneth Paltrow gave her stamp of approval for the rekindled romance, commenting “Okay, this is cute,” on a photo posted by Lopez’s stylist Mariel Haenn that showed the couple kissing.
The comment was screenshotted by @commentsbycelebs, who called the seductive moment “straight serotonin,” according to Page Six.
