Ben Affleck recently got candid during an interview with The New York Times. Not only did he open about about his divorce from Jennifer Garner, he also discussed his former fiancée, Jennifer Lopez.

Writer Brooks Barnes shared some outtakes from the interview on Twitter, and in one of them, Affleck mentioned Lopez. The actor said of her performance in Hustlers, "She should have been nominated. She's the real thing. I keep in touch periodically with her and have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That's fucking baller."

Affleck and Lopez met on the set of Gigli, which was shot between December 2001 and March 2002. Affleck proposed with a 6.1-carat pink diamond ring, but the couple went on to split in January 2004.

Affleck also sent an adorable message to his ex-wife during the interview, which Barnes shared on Twitter. The former Batman said, "The first and main thing that I have to say to Jennifer Garner in public or in private is thank you. I want to be really clear about how much I respect her and how much I value the fact that she works with me in co-parenting."
