Ben Affleck looks exhausted leaving Jennifer Lopez’s Bel Air home… following the couple’s romantic dinner date in Beverly Hills

Ben Affleck looked exhausted while leaving Jennifer Lopez’s house after the couple enjoyed a romantic dinner date in Beverly Hills the evening before.

While pulling out of his rekindled flame’s $28million mansion in Bel Air on Friday afternoon, the two-time Oscar winner, 48, smoked a cigarette.

As he drove home with his windows down, the father-of-three was seen sporting a scruffy beard and a white button-down.

Affleck looked tired after spending the night with Lopez, who he began seeing again earlier this year, 17 years after ending their engagement. 

The reunited lovebirds have been seen shuttling back-and-forth from their West Coast homes since they began dating in April, shortly after she ended her relationship to her fiancé Alex Rodriguez.

Last week, it was reported that she viewed the Good Will Hunting actor as ‘the one that got away,’ after they split in 2004.

‘Jennifer always saw Ben as the one that got away,’ an insider told Page Six. ‘She was crushed after they broke up, though she felt at the time that she had no other choice but to call off their engagement.’  

It was also said that following many PDA-packed outings — including one steamy kissing session at Nobu Malibu — and getaways including Miami and Big Sky, Montana, that ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez had come to terms with the fact the relationship was ‘over now.’  

‘When they first split, he wanted to work things out, and still held on to hope that he and J.Lo would get back together,’ a source told ET. ‘He’s come to terms with the fact that it’s over now.’

But in a seemingly scorned move, the sports correspondent was photographed spending time with Affleck’s ex Lindsay Shookus earlier in June, although his rep told Page Six ‘there is absolutely zero there,’ and that they had been friends for 15 years.

In another seemingly bold move he also splashed out on a $200k/month rental property in the Hamptons — just one mile away from the JLo Beauty mogul.  

It was said that it was nothing more than a convenience as he takes weekly meetings in Bristol, Connecticut, however.
