Jennifer Lopez Says She and Ben Affleck Are 'Real Partners': He Wants to 'See Me Shine as Bright as I Can'

"We discuss everything with each other ... I want his opinion, everything, because I trust him," the actress and singer told 'Extra' of her husband

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are each other's No. 1 fans.

Speaking with Extra on Tuesday at the Elle Women in Hollywood event, the multihyphenate star said of her husband, "We are real partners, not just in working together, but in life, as parents, as lovers, as a couple."

According to Lopez, 54, she and Affleck, 51, "discuss everything with each other." As she explained to Extra, "I want his opinion, everything, because I trust him."

"I know he has the best intentions," she continued. "He has no kind of agenda except to see me shine as bright as I can shine, and that’s what I have for him, too, so I definitely always want his opinion."

The actress and musician also said that her upcoming album This Is Me ... Now is the "most personal" she has ever done, adding, "I don’t think anybody knows anything about my true personal life."

In a recent interview for VogueLopez revealed that her Oscar-winner husband "wants me to understand my worth and know my value."

“I feel even more relaxed and comfortable, which makes me feel even more beautiful than I have ever felt with someone else," she added of Affleck, whom she tied the knot with in 2022.

The Marry Me star went on to tell the outlet that she has come to a stage in life where she loves every part of herself “unapologetically.”

“Every part of me, my body, my voice, my choices, even like my mistakes," Lopez said.

Last year, Lopez opened up to PEOPLE about rekindling her romance with Affleck years after they'd called off their engagement.

According to the star, she and the Air actor and director "had a little bit of fear" about attention on their relationship, recalling the circus that surrounded them the first time around.

"Before, we kind of put [our relationship] out there and we were naïve, and it got a little trampled," Lopez said.

This time, she explained, "We both were like, 'Wow, we're so happy and we don't want any of that to come into play again.' "

"We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things," Lopez added. "We're so protective because it is such a beautiful time for all of us."
