Jennifer Lopez reveals why she took Ben Affleck’s last name

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

In a candid cover interview with Vogue magazine, Jennifer Lopez described her “empowering” marriage and expressed satisfaction in adopting Ben Affleck’s last name.

The Marry Me actress wed Ben Affleck in July in Las Vegas, and the couple celebrated their nuptials again the following month at her husband’s $8.9 million Georgia house.

The pair, known as Bennifer, rekindled their passion two decades after their first failed engagement. It was a love story for the ages.

Speaking to Vogue, she said;

‘People are still going to call me Jennifer Lopez. But my legal name will be Mrs. Affleck because we’re joined together. We’re husband and wife. I’m proud of that.

‘I don’t think that’s a problem… It’s not traditional. It doesn’t have any romance to it. It feels like it’s a power move, you know what I mean? I’m very much in control of my own life and destiny and feel empowered as a woman and as a person. I can understand that people have their feelings about it, and that’s okay, too.
