LOS ANGELES - When Ben Affleck won best director at the Golden Globe Awards for his Iran hostage thriller, "Argo," ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez was among those cheering the loudest. Lopez said she gave Affleck a standing ovation.
"I am so happy for him," she said.
Lopez and Affleck, who were known as "Bennifer," broke off their engagement 10 years ago. The couple were always in the tabloids and became a source of derision, and their movie together, "Gigli," bombed, hurting their careers. It's part of the reason Lopez was so happy to see Affleck, now married to Jennifer Garner, win big at the Golden Globe Awards. ("Argo" also won for best drama.)
"You know we went through a really rough time in the press and things like that back in the day. So I really felt like, 'Wow this is a great moment,'" she said in an interview this week.
