Affleck is nearly a year removed from exchanging vows with Lopez in Las Vegas July 16.
He and Lopez then took part in an August 20 wedding ceremony at his estate outside of Savannah, Georgia.
Affleck was recently at the center of an amusing story told by his longtime friend and frequent costar Matt Damon, 52, who appeared on the SmartLess: On the Road podcast with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett.
Damon in the appearance opened up about a discussion he had with Affleck when they were in the same high school theater program as teens in Massachusetts.
‘When he arrived at the high school, I had to set him straight ’cause I was the lord of that theater department,’ Damon said.
He continued: ‘I went up to him, like, first day and pulled him up and was like, “Hey, you know it’s different here in the theater.”‘
Damon said he told Affleck, ‘You’re not gonna get by on your looks,’ adding, ‘And we were both like, 5-foot-2.’

Affleck appeared with his longtime friend Matt Damon in LA promoting the film Air in March
Damon said Affleck arrived with a bit of hype after appearing in an 1986 ABC afterschool special, adding ‘He was like the big star of our school.’
The pals would go on to appear in the 1992 film School Ties, five years before they both broke out with the 1997 classic Good Will Hunting, for which they jointly wont the Oscar for Best Screenplay.
They have since worked together on films such as 1999’s Dogma, 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, 2021’s The Last Duel and this year’s Nike film Air.
