Ben Affleck Updates: The latest People Magazine Cover features Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez and it is eerily similar to a fictionalized magazine cover seen in Affleck’s 2014 thriller movie, Gone Girl.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have rekindled their romance and that is what is heating up the entertainment press at present. A recent People cover features the couple and it bears a strong resemblance to a magazine cover seen in Affleck’s movie Gone Girl. The movie is based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel of the same name and stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne.

The seemingly happy couple seems like the picture of a perfect American couple until Amy suddenly vanishes making Nick the prime suspect in her disappearance. The film was well-received by both the audience and the critics and went on to win numerous awards and nominations.

In the movie, Amy’s disappearance is sensationalized by the media as she is portrayed as an ideal wife while Nick gets the image of an infidel whose motives are questioned at every turn. In the end, it turns out that it was Amy’s plan all along to frame her husband after she discovered that he was having an affair.

She makes a dramatic reappearance which is followed by a hyped media coverage. During that moment, a scene merely flashes on the screen where an In Touch magazine cover can be seen. The magazine cover features Amy and Nick Dunne with the headline “A Second Chance at Love!”

The People Magazine’s latest issue for August 2 portrays a cover featuring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Interesting, the headline that accompanies the picture is the same as the one featured in Gone Girl. The similarity was noticed by Twitter user Matt Sullivan who posted a side-by-side picture of the two magazines.

The People magazine cover featuring Affleck and Lopez has the headline “Ben & J.Lo 17 Years Later…A Second Chance at Love!” Whether it’s People’s way of referencing pop culture or if it’s a mere coincidence, is hard to say.

Another strange detail that can be noticed is Affleck’s half-smile in the latest cover which is so much similar to the puzzling grin that his character in Gone Girl, Nick, passes at the press. The disgruntled half-smile becomes a talking point for the rest of the film as Nick’s character was explored further. There is no doubt that Affleck’s acting prowess did wonders in the film winning him high praises.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez‘s short-lived romance in the early 2000s was one of the most sensational romances of all time. The couple earned the title ‘Bennifer’ and were among the most photographed celebrity couples. It is wonderful to see their rekindled romance and the couple continues to attract so much media attention even after so many years.
