Affleck: My Life Is a Car Wreck

Wednesday, January 7th, 2004

From IMDB:

Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck has likened the mania surrounding his on/off wedding to Jennifer Lopez to a car crash. The pair were due to marry in Santa Barbara, California in September, but the ceremony was canceled at the last minute after details were leaked to the press – amid an overwhelming flurry of media interest. Four months on, Affleck is able to reflect on the experience: “I suppose it’s most like being in the middle of a car wreck. “While it’s happening, you just feel oddly detached from it. It’s kind of, ‘I wonder how this will turn out. Am I going to die? Will I lose my life?’ as your car is spinning across the road into incoming traffic.”

Billboard Hot 100…1 year ago

Wednesday, January 7th, 2004

One year ago on the Billboard Hot 100, “Jenny from the Block” was continuing its descent from position #3 it was stuck at. It was #6 that week, down 1 from #5 the previous week.

Meanwhile, “All I Have” w/ LL Cool J was beginning its climb. In two weeks (!) it reached the #15 position, which is VERY fast. Last year it continued for a third week at #15.

Ben Glad Jen Excluded From “Jersey Girl” Promotions

Saturday, January 3rd, 2004

From IMDB:

Ben Affleck has applauded film bosses for ignoring his fiance Jennifer Lopez’s part in new movie Jersey Girl – because she only appears for 15 minutes. Skeptics felt sure marketing experts at Miramax were trying to distance themselves from Gigli, Ben and Jen’s disastrous first movie collaboration, by leaving her off movie posters and ads for Jersey Girl. But Affleck insists the idea not to capitalize on his girlfriend’s bit part was a smart one. He says, “To sell Jennifer on Jersey Girl would have been disingenuous. She’s in the first 15 minutes of the movie, a cameo. It’s actually more honest, and I think it makes everybody more comfortable at this point to make it about what it is – a father and his daughter.”

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! There haven’t been many updates here lately due to the holidays and me (the site owner) being sick. Hopefully JLo.net will have a prosperous year!
