What’s a friend if they don’t watch out for you and occasionally offer some criticism about your relationships?

While the world has enjoyed seeing Jennifer Lopez reunite with Ben Affleck, her friend Jane Fonda has had some reservations. The 86-year-old actress is quite open about her feelings regarding Lopez getting back together with Affleck.

Continue reading to hear Fonda’s thoughts.

The unexpected friendship began when they starred opposite each other in the 2005 film Monster-in-Law. Since then, they have remained very close. So close that Lopez included Fonda in her new documentary, This Is Me Now: A Love Story.

In the documentary, Fonda expresses two concerns she has about the couple.

“I want you to know that I’m not entirely sure why, but I feel invested in you and Ben, and I really want this to work,” Fonda told Lopez, according to Variety. “However, here’s my concern. It feels too much like you’re trying to prove something instead of just living it. You know, every other photograph is the two of you kissing and hugging.”

“That’s just us living our life,” Lopez replied, laughing off the comment.

Fonda also voiced her concern after seeing photos of Affleck at the 2023 Grammys, saying she was “really scared.”

“I got really scared, you know, with all that stuff about the Grammys and he looked unhappy, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, what’s happening.'”

Lopez reassured Fonda that there was “nothing” wrong with her relationship, explaining that Affleck simply felt like, “I’ve become the symbol of the beleaguered man.”

Despite her critiques, Fonda added that she believed “everyone in the entire world is rooting for this relationship and this love,” emphasizing that the way the couple presents their relationship is “so important.”

“It should be handled in a way that you aren’t overly flaunting it, to the point where it generates any form of criticism or resentment.”
