Ben Affleck is reflecting on the way his ex Jennifer Lopez was treated in the early 2000s, saying her critics were ‘so f**cking mean.’ While appearing on The Hollywood Reporter’s Award Chatter podcast Thursday, the 48-year-old actor says there were ‘sexist, racist, ugly vicious s**t’ written about Lopez. Affleck and Lopez began dating in 2002, followed by a year-long engagement, but ‘Bennifer’ went their separate ways in January 2004. Lopez opened up to ET in 2014 about her split with Affleck, calling it her first ‘adult heart break.’
