Shortly after Affleck and Lopez split in 2004, reports swirled that the couple’s relationship fell apart because of the expectations of the press. The couple didn’t also like how they were pressured by the media.
During an interview with Howard Stern, Affleck said that one of the reasons for his split from Lopez at the time was because of how the media pushed the idea that they hated them together.
The Tender Bar actor also admitted that he was partially to blame for the fallout of his and Lopez’s engagement at the time.

“I am very lucky in my life in that I have benefited from second chances, and I am aware that other people don't even get first chances. I've had second chances in my career. I've had second chances as a human being,” he said.
Page Six previously claimed that Lopez was heartbroken after she decided to call off her engagement to Affleck. After all, she was ready to settle down and have children with the actor back in the early 2000s.
“As hot and heavy as their relationship was, they were on very different paths at the end of it. Jennifer was ready to settle down and have kids, but Ben wasn’t keen on giving up his bachelor lifestyle just yet. In the end, she got tired of waiting for him to come around — even though it broke her heart to end things,” a source said.
