Last week, nearly 20 years after they first got engaged, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tied the knot at a drive-through chapel in Las Vegas.
Despite the irreverent surroundings, insiders say the moment when Ben and Jen exchanged vows was deeply emotional for all involved, including the actors’ children, who were on hand to serve as witnesses.
Lopez and Affleck jetted off to Paris for a low-key honeymoon following their nuptials, but for these two Hollywood go-getters, the grind never stops.
And Jen’s latest project involves showing the world what sort of view Ben is enjoying in the City of Lights.
Yes, J-Lo offered an unexpected surprise for her Instagram followers this week, when she posed completely nude to promote her latest business venture, JLo Body by JLo Beauty.
The pics coincided with Jen’s 53rd birthday.
Usually when people say things like “she doesn’t look a day over 25,” they’re just blowing smoke.
But if someone just returned to Earth after spending the past 30 years on Mars (we can’t imagine any other circumstances under which someone would not know who J-Lo is), they’d probably incinerate you with their ray gun if you tried to convince them that this woman is 53.
Of course, Jen isn’t just flaunting her flawless physique here.
She’s promoting the debut product in her new JLo Body by JLo Beauty line — a cellulite-eradicating cream called Firm + Flaunt Targeted Booty Balm.
“We already have some amazing products targeting tightening and firming for the face, so a product for the body that addressed those same issues was a natural next step for us,” Lopez told People magazine in a new interview.
“It was also the body part that our consumers wanted a targeted treatment for, and they couldn’t find it on the market.”
Lopez says she was inspired to launch the product by the example set by woman in their 60s, 70s, and beyond who still show up looking fabulous.
“‘Beauty has no expiration date’ was always my personal mantra because I’m in a business where youth is glorified and people try to write, especially women, off at a certain time,” she says.
“It’s like, ‘Oh, you’re done no more movies for you. We don’t want your music anymore.’ Growing up, I looked up to people like Diana Ross and Cher and Tina Turner, and they were in their 50s and they were beautiful and almost coming into their own at that time.
“I believe you can look and feel amazing and sexy at any age. I really dislike the phrase, ‘You look good for 40, or you look good for 30, you look good for 50.’ How about you just ‘you look good?'”
And one person who loves how J-Lo looks no matter what she has on is her new husband.
“He is like, ‘I like you when you have nothing on. No hair on, no makeup on, just you in your own skin,” Lopez said.
“He really appreciates that. And that makes me feel really confident and beautiful. Someone can see the essence of who you are and just the skin that you’re in and that I take care of that and that he appreciates that,” she continued.
“That makes me feel really beautiful too.”
Jen concluded the interview by stating that she
“I am the age I am, but I feel amazing and happier than ever. I feel like I’m just at my halftime right now and just getting started.”
And we can wait to see what she has in store for us in her second half!
