What did you miss?

Tearful Jennifer Lopez got emotional when she discussed self-love and what her husband Ben Affleck had said to her in her intimate new documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told.

Famously dubbed Bennifer, J-Lo and Affleck were one of Hollywood's golden couples when they got engaged in the early 2000s but they called off the wedding in 2004. Almost 20 years later, the couple delighted the world when they decided to give their love a second chance. Lopez and Affleck finally tied the knot in 2022.

The Prime Video documentary has taken viewers behind the scenes of her newly released album based on her love letters with Affleck and her musical film This is Me... Now: A Love Story.

What, how and why?

Now looking at their romance in the documentary, the singing superstar said it was her actor husband who gave her the confidence to love herself and helped her to really "see" herself with his inspiring words.

The moment was incredibly moving in the documentary, with the singer breaking down in tears as she spoke about how Affleck made her feel. In tears, she said in a piece to camera: "What he said and what he saw in me, and what he made me believe about myself, only comes from love. Because nobody else could have made me see that about myself. It's very moving."

Further explaining how she felt, she added: "I didn't think much about myself and so the world didn't think much of me. That lined up. This is how it is. See it. Believe it."

Opening up about their love story, J-Lo lifted the lid on how they both had changed since the first time they met back in the early 2000s compared to now.

She told the cameras of Affleck and herself: "We're totally different people now and we're the same and we have the same love 100 per cent. Like I'd never fallen out of love with you. I had to just put it over there."

The couple had gone onto marry other people but they were brought together again as they went public with their reunion in 2021.

How did viewers react?

Social media was awash with fans praising Lopez for making the documentary and people confessed to falling in love with Bennifer. Among the comments, one person wrote: "I just finished watching this wonderful piece of work. Jenn, you taught me the strength and beauty of love Thank you so much!! I want many people to see it."

Others added: "He just wants her to get PROPER credit that she deserves. And he wants to make she she knows SHE did the damn thing! Ben Affleck will ALWAYS be by Jennifer Lopez’s side loving and supporting her, but he will NEVER try to steal or dim her spotlight."
