Reportedly, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have reportedly played a role in saving the close friendship of Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso. They stepped in and helped them “rediscover” their romance.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez reportedly saved the relationship of their close friend, Matt Damon. The Martian star was said to be experiencing rocky ground with his wife of 18 years, Luciana Barroso, and the couple was reportedly “speeding toward a split.” Thankfully, Ben urged his pal to seek therapy “before it was too late.” Matt and Luciana got married in 2005 and have one child together, Isabella. Matt has been close friends with fellow actor Ben since they were young children and have starred in movies like Good Will Hunting, Field of Dreams, and more recently, Air. According to an insider, “Ben is first to admit that the only thing that keeps Jennifer and him together is therapy.”
Ben and JLo came to lend a hand.
Matt and Luciana have reignited their romance and are now able to communicate on a whole new level, according to sources who spoke to National Enquirer. After seeking marriage counseling with the help of Ben, the couple was spotted vacationing in Mykonos, Greece just before the release of Matt’s latest film, Oppenheimer. The insider also revealed that J-Lo had her own reasons for encouraging Matt to seek counseling, hoping he would shed the bro behavior he shares with Ben and pay more attention to his own wife. For Matt, counseling has not only saved his marriage to Luciana but also thawed the freeze that existed between him and Jennifer, so he and Ben can be best buds again.
Jennifer is asking Matt to share some advice with Ben. These comments follow body language expert Judi James exclusively sharing that Ben Affleck is in “a joy-free zone” despite being married to Jennifer Lopez, “one of the world’s most desirable women.” Speaking exclusively to The Mirror, Judi said: “Ben Affleck has an impressive back catalogue of glum body language. Despite being hugely successful and recently married to one of the world’s most desirable women, he has, at turns, looked irritated, annoyed, bored, and impatient during some of his most recent outings. And here, on the way into his office, his downcast eyes and the way his facial features all droop downward, all suggest he is a joy-free zone at this moment.”
