In the early 2000s, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were Hollywood’s golden couple.

Now the couple has made their first red carpet appearance together in 18 years at the Venice Film Festival, and it’s safe to say the ‘Bennifer’ sparkle is back.

The couple rekindled their romance after nearly two decades apart earlier this year and have been snapped by the paparazzi on multiple occasions, but were yet to make a red carpet appearance – until now.

JLo and Ben stepped out at the 78th annual film festival in Venice for the premiere of the actor’s new movie The Last Duel, which he stars in and also produced alongside Matt Damon.

The couple looked as loved up as ever as they walked the red carpet hand-in-hand.

Always looking picture-perfect, JLo stunned in a white couture gown by Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika. The white dress perfectly sculpted the star’s athletic figure and featured a plunging neckline which was embellished with Swarovski crystals.

Meanwhile, Ben looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo.

The last time the pair walked a red carpet together was back in 2003 at the premiere of the film they starred in together Gigli.

At the time, the couple were engaged and were set to marry on September 14, 2003, but was postponed due to what was cited at the time as “excessive media attention” surrounding the nuptials. Four months later in January 2004, ‘Bennifer’ announced they had split.

Ben went on to marry actress Jennifer Garner in 2005, but split up in 2018. The pair have three children together.

Meanwhile, Jlo went on to marry Marc Anthony in 2004, with whom she has two children. The pair divorced in 2014 after 10 years of marriage. Most recently, JLo was engaged to former professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez. They began dating in 2017 and became engaged in 2019. However, the couple announce their split in April of this year.

And now, nearly two decades on, Bennifer is having their second moment.
