Ben Affleck has subtly dismissed divorce rumors amid growing speculation about his marriage to Jennifer Lopez.

The Oscar winner, 51, referred to the ‘Jenny From the Block’ singer, 54, as his ‘wife’ during the Season 4 premiere of the Peacock’s ‘Hart to Heart’ by Kevin Hart, Thursday.

While talking about the pair’s life in the spotlight, Affleck admitted that he doesn’t like the “attention” – a big reason why he always looks grumpy in paparazzi pictures.

“That’s why people see me and say, ‘Why is this guy always upset?’ Because someone has their camera and they’re sticking it in my face,” he explained.

“I don’t mind you taking my picture at a club or a premiere with my wife, I don’t give a f—k. Go ahead. Knock yourself out. I don’t notice you,” he added.

However, when it comes to his children – Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12 – Affleck said it’s a whole “different thing”.

Despite being a top actor, the “Good Will Hunting” star said his level of fame changed drastically after he and Lopez rekindled their romance in 2021.

Affleck explained that his wife has a “f-kin’ bananas” level of fame and that she “really represents something important to people.”

“(For me) people are like, ‘Hey, I like your movie,’ and then they’re like, ‘AAAHHHH! J.LO!’” he yelled. “It’s amazing, you know what I mean?”

It is unclear when the episode was filmed.

The couple, who married in July 2022, sparked split rumors in May after news broke that they were living apart.

A few weeks later, the pair put their $60 million mega-mansion in Beverly Hills, California up for sale — a year after buying the 38,000-square-foot house all cash.

While neither Affleck nor Lopez directly addressed the speculation, the “Marry Me” star shot down the rumors on Father’s Day by sharing a sweet post honoring her husband.

“Our hero 🤍,” the “On the Floor” hitmaker wrote on her Instagram story alongside a black-and-white photo of Affleck. “Happy Father’s Day.”

In addition to her husband’s children, Lopez is mother to 16-year-old twins Max and Emme.

However, they sparked divorce rumors last month after Affleck moved out of their marital home.

Although they’ve been a united front, a source previously told Page Six that the “Air” actor has “come to his senses” about their ill-fated marriage.

“If there was a way to get a divorce on the grounds of temporary insanity, they would,” our insider said last month.

“He feels like the last two years were just a fever dream and he’s come to his senses now and understands there’s no way it’s going to work.”
