Hollywood stars Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have got married in Las Vegas, nearly twenty years after they first met on the sets of Gigli back in 2002.
While the film was a complete flop, it did result in one of Hollywood’s biggest-ever romances – one that initially flagged with a failed engagement in 2004, and revived after Ben’s divorce in 2018 from Jennifer Garner, who he had married in 2005.
In her statement, Jennifer said the ceremony was the “best possible wedding we could have imagined… one we dreamed of long ago and one made real at very, very long last.”
Now that love finally found its way, the two are beginning to settle down – a long time coming, for sure. Fortunately, as an entertainer pairing worth millions, they’ve got plenty of room to play around when it comes to building the perfect life together.
According to celebrity net worth, Ben is worth $150 million – putting him in the same league as Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino – all of whom are legendary actors considerably older than he is.
This isn’t surprising, considering that Affleck has been an actor for most of his life. Long before he became Batman or directed Argo, the 49-year-old star scored his first acting gig on PBS children’s programmes at the age of seven. He’s since then gone on to become one of modern Hollywood’s biggest names, and rightly so.
While Jennifer also has a long filmography, her rags-to-riches story that took her from Manhattan to around the world has made her one of the most successful women in showbiz, with a whopping net worth of $400 million – pulling in royalties from her albums, as well as sales from her extremely successful catalogues of skincare, fashion, and perfumes.
While it isn’t clear if the pair have signed a prenup or not, it’s clear that Jennifer certainly has the heavier wallet between the two, at nearly 270% her husband’s net worth.
With great wealth comes great… real estate, I guess. The couple were spotted eyeing a $165 million mansion almost exactly a year ago, which is where the two seem to be interested in growing old together. (Not that they couldn’t buy a few more.)
Located in the very fancy Holmby Hills neighbourhood, the home has 8 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a bowling alley, hair salon, movie theatre, wine cellar and tasting room, a golf simulator, and a medical room – just in case you slip at either one of the property’s two pools.
It also features a humongous master suite, elevators, an outdoor kitchen, cabana, and a cosy two-bedroom guesthouse.
Ofcourse, with all this space, why not fill up the driveway with some extremely expensive cars?
Affleck’s personal collection is quite cool – totalling up to a sweet $1.5 million worth of SUVs, muscle cars, luxury saloons, and surprisingly, no supercars. Seems like a practical guy – here’s his enviable list in total:
Jennifer’s collection comes at a much higher $3.8 million – largely bolstered by a custom RV with space for twenty, that cost her $2 million to get made. The rest of her collection is a bit more opulent and sporty than Ben’s:
That’s nearly one car per year of them knowing each other – a cute coincidence worth over $5 million.
