Jennifer Lopez's Co-Star Defends Her During Divorce Query In Mexico

 May 23, 2024

A contentious moment unfolded during a press event in Mexico City when Jennifer Lopez was confronted about her rumored divorce from Ben Affleck.

Fox News reported that an unexpected query about her personal life marred Jennifer Lopez's promotional event for her new film, "Atlas". 

Jennifer Lopez, also a producer of "Atlas," sought to focus on her project during this significant promotional event in Mexico City. However, the spotlight shifted abruptly when a reporter broached a topic far from professional.

Simu Liu Steps In During Press Inquiry

Rising to the occasion was Simu Liu, Jennifer Lopez's co-star in "Atlas." He quickly intercepted the question about Jennifer's private life to maintain the event's decorum.

"Okay, we're not doing that. Thank you so much, I appreciate it," said Simu Liu, setting a respectful boundary for the following conversation. His intervention highlighted a supportive cast environment, especially in times of personal scrutiny by celebrities.

Jennifer Lopez's response to the reporter was both poignant and stern. "You know better than that. Come on. Don't come in here with that energy, please," she said. This interaction comes amidst rumors of marital turbulence with Ben Affleck, which have fueled media and public speculation.

Recent Appearances and Marital Rumors

The rumors were exacerbated by Jennifer Lopez attending several public events alone, including her role as a co-chair at the Met Gala, where Ben Affleck was notably absent. His absence at such a pivotal event in the social calendar added to the whispers about their marriage's health.

These speculations were further kindled following a March when the couple was seldom seen together. It was on May 19 that the public saw Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck together, photographed in Los Angeles, which provided some counter to the ongoing rumors.

Adding to the media whirlwind were comments from a roast event for Tom Brady, held the day before the Met Gala, where Ben Affleck's appearance and words were met with critique. This sequence of events has painted a complex picture of their relationship dynamics in the public eye.

Liu Commends Lopez's Professional Achievements

Despite the personal questions, Simu Liu redirected the focus towards Jennifer Lopez's professional role and her contributions to the film industry. "Jen is a producer on this movie and the reason why I'm here and the reason why Sterling [K. Brown] was in this beautiful movie because Jen cares. And Jen cares about things like representation and diversity. And she's a boss," he commented.

Jennifer Lopez did not just focus on her performance as an actor in "Atlas." She imbued it with her vision as a producer, striving for diversity and representation in the film industry. This commitment was overshadowed momentarily by personal inquiries, which she navigated with professionalism.

The couple's representative has remained silent on the issue, not responding to requests for comments on their marital status. This has left the public and media to speculate based on the couple's public appearances and individual professional commitments.

In conclusion, while the press event for "Atlas" in Mexico City aimed to spotlight the film and its makers, it inadvertently highlighted the personal life scrutiny that celebrities like Jennifer Lopez endure. Despite the distractions, the professional focus was quickly restored, affirming the resilience and support within the creative communities.
