JENNIFER “JLo” Lopez skipped boyfriend Ben Affleck’s movie premiere red carpet with George Clooney because she secretly “can’t stand” her former co-star.
Ben stars in The Tender Bar, directed by George, which will be released on December 22, 2021.
An insider exclusively told The Sun: “Jen famously did not get along with George Clooney when they made Out of Sight together. They couldn’t stand each other.
“So it’s funny that Ben’s new movie is with George and it’s no coincidence that Jen was not photographed on the red carpet with him, posing with George and [wife] Amal.”
The source also added that “Bridges need to be repaired.”
The Sun has reached out to both stars’ reps.
However, earlier in the day, JLo was spotted holding hands with Ben on the way to another screening of the film, as the two arrived looking casual.
George was spotted attending the same screening in a polo and jeans.
George and JLo, now 52, shared the screen in 1998’s Out Of Sight, receiving critical acclaim.
And while neither megastar has touched on any hostility that occurred between them during filming, JLo once opened up to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show about her onscreen kisses.
“I’ve done over 30 movies, so the ratio… some are good, some are not so good,” she told the comedian.
When the A-lister did not mention any names, Jon guessed that George could be the worst of all.
“He was OK! He was alright,” the actress said at the time.
Over the weekend, George, 60, and Ben, 49, posed together at their film’s red carpet premiere in Los Angeles.
The two stars, who have both played Batman, laughed and smiled together as Ben put his hand around George’s shoulders.
Others at the premiere included Hollywood stars Lily Rabe, Christopher Lloyd, and Tye Sherida.
The Hustlers star and the Gone Baby Gone director rekindled their romance earlier this year more than 15 years after calling off their engagement.
Their relationship has quickly become serious, as they previously were spotted touring multi-million dollar mansions in Los Angeles together.
JLo and Ben also explored an $85million estate in Beverly Hills, California with enough space for their combined brood of five children.
JLo shares her 13-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc Anthony, while Ben is a dad to Violet, 15; Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine, with Jennifer Garner.
Ben has even been openly protective of his girlfriend, as the Batman V Superman star recently pushed a fan who tried to get a selfie with the mom of two.
A-ROD MOVES ON
It has been a while last couple of months for the singer who broke up with her fiancé Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez.
“… I’m in a great place. I’m so grateful for where God and the light has really put me, and I’m really looking forward,” A-Rod told ET! after the split.
