Truly a walk to remember.
There’s just something about the holidays that make even the most mundane tasks feel magical and romantic. Call it the trees wrapped in twinkling lights or the ever-present mistletoe, but every couple seems to be brought together by the festive season. When it comes to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, though, the husband-and-wife duo have a knack for turning simple activities into loved-up displays all year long.
On Wednesday, the two were spotted going for a stroll in Los Angeles all cozied up together, as if to protect themselves from the “cold.” (It’s currently 61 degrees in the City of Angels.) In an adorable moment of PDA, Lopez reached over and planted a smooch on her hubby while also grabbing onto his jacket to bring him closer. Meanwhile, Affleck held his wife close by wrapping an arm around her cardigan-clad shoulder. In a separate shot, Lopez and Affleck were all smiles while walking hand-in-hand.
The doting couple also dressed the part for the excursion. J.Lo wore a long snug cream-colored sweater worn open to reveal a white T-shirt tucked into flared jeans. Sneakers and black sunglasses completed her casual ‘fit, and she slicked back her caramel hair into a tight ponytail.
For his part, Affleck looked fashion forward in a blue velvet quilted bomber jacket layered over a matching tee and styled with khakis and Nike sneakers (fitting for someone who starred in Air, the origin story of the Nike Air shoes).
In case you’ve forgotten, Lopez and Affleck got a second chance at love when they rekindled their relationship in 2021 after 17 years apart. Whether it’s her love life, a critically acclaimed film like Hustlers, or the Super Bowl Halftime Show, it’s no secret that Lopez has continued to thrive into her 50s, proving that sometimes things really do just get better with age. In a new interview with Elle for its 2023 Women in Hollywood issue, Lopez opened up about aging in Hollywood, saying that women just get “sexier” over time.
“As you get older and you have more experience, you become a richer human being, and you have more to offer. The idea of ‘There’s nothing really valuable about watching a woman over 30’ is so ridiculous, it’s the opposite of right. It just makes me laugh,” she said. “People have realized that women just get sexier as they get older. They get more learned and more rich with character. All of that is very beautiful and attractive, and not just physically, but on the inside, the beauty that you gain as you get older, the wisdom you gain.”
