Bennifer wedding postponed

J.Lo, Affleck Postpone Wedding Date
By ANTHONY BREZNICAN

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The much-anticipated wedding of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck is apparently off - at least for now.

The couple said they didn't want any more publicity regarding their nuptials and have decided to postpone the ceremony, which was set to take place this weekend at a mansion in the Santa Barbara area.

``We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised,'' said a joint statement released Wednesday by Dan Klores and Ken Sunshine, Lopez and Affleck's respective New York-based spokesmen. ``We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends.''

Affleck and Lopez have become a romantic phenomenon that gossip columnists have dubbed ``Bennifer'' and chronicled relentlessly since they started dating last year.

``Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date. When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate 'decoy brides' at three different locations, we realized that something was awry,'' the statement said.

Us Weekly magazine had reported that the vows and reception would occur at Sotto Il Monte, a private $29 million estate in the Montecito area. Guests including Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Matthew Perry and Alec Baldwin were set to be shuttled to the wedding from nearby resort hotels.

Some celebrity journalists warn the postponement report could be a fake-out to dupe the press.

``I think it's a good possibility. I think it's at least 50-50 that the wedding will still take place this weekend but perhaps in a different location,'' said editor Bonnie Fuller, who oversees 14 magazines including the Enquirer, the Star and the Globe.

The Star recently reported Lopez had been suffering premarital jitters.

If or when the wedding happens, it will be the third for Lopez, 33, and the first for Affleck, 31. The couple met while filming this summer's infamous bomb, ``Gigli.''

Previous rumors about the wedding have placed it in Kauai, Hawaii; Atlanta and Scotland. Affleck himself has teased reporters by saying: ``It is in Namibia on Nov. 15. So you go ahead and fly on down, and we'll see you there.''



Are any of you surprised by this? I certainly ain't.

Or, does anyone really care? I think it is yet another ploy for publicity. I know a lot of people find celebrities, and so do I in some rare cases, but those 2 make me sick. Especially her, she is such a skeevy no talent pig.

Third marriage for Lopez by the age of 33???? She's been busy.

And when was a Hollywood wedding ever sacred??

"The happiest day of our lives" !
For a couple who started dating only 3 months after the last "happiest day of her life" with someone else, I wouldn't think a wedding would be that important.

I can't say I blame them, for whatever their reasons are. Even as a celebrity, I wouldn't want the paparazzi at my wedding, hanging off of tree branches and circling in helicopters to get a photo for their trash mag. I don't know why they announced it in the first place! I'm sure we'll hear sometime later that they held a secret wedding for just family and friends. That's how I would do it.

I am in the who cares department. I give this marriage when and if it happens- 3 months tops!

Big Whoop


Just leave the poor people alone. Why do we, as a people, feel the need to get in everyone's business?
post #10 of 32
Because their business is very public!

the term 'bennifer' makes me want to retch

If they're honestly concerned about the publicity, why don't they just go ahead & move in together, or just pop over to the JP one day? It's not like she's never had a chance to wear a fancy wedding dress before. They're probably just trying to keep the photos exclusive.

look at Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell- never married, one of the most successful relationships in Hollywood. Bennifer should be so lucky- her other 3 wedding dresses still fit her, want to bet she buys another one?

She was being interviewed by a local radio station a few years ago when she was about to leave for Australia on a promotional tour. It was the middle of summer here in Texas, and the interviewer mentioned something about her packing winter clothes and her reaction was...huh? The interviewer had to explain to her that it was winter over there! She had no clue, and she was about 30 years old at the time! This is someone that girls want to emulate?!?

ok, no more soapbox.

Poor little Ben wrapped around Jenny's fingers...I feel sorry for him. Oh, Did anyone of you see the South Park episode with them on there? OMG! That was so hilarious and stupid!!

So their movie tanked, and now they decide to postpone the wedding. I can understand not wanting all the publicity, but they allow all the other publicity. Who can blame the paparazzi for thinking the wedding is just another photo op? Actually, I think the paparazzi should respect celebrities more, but some just seem to ask for it.

I am really tired of hearing about Bennifer. I like him, too, she does bother me a little. I don't understand why people think she is so talented, I've seen a few of her movies, and I wasn't terribly impressed.

Count me in as one who does not care.
post #26 of 32
I had to laugh at some of the comments made in this thread!

I personally like Ben and DO NOT WANT him around Jennifer!! She's a SLUT.. Hope u guys don't mind me calling her that. I agree about the nickname "bennifer"

I give them ONE MONTH tops if they ever get married. I HOPE I'm wrong because I don't want Ben getting his heart broken. BUT AGAIN, I don't really know Ben so who knows what goes on in their relationship.

I personally think I have more interesting things to do than keep track of who is marrying who such as hmmmm washing dishes or cleaning the litterbox... what else??

I agree that perhaps the US spends too much time focusing on the lives of celebrities. But, in this case it's hard not too, because Bennifer's on the news ALL THE TIME. Their wedding postponement even made last night's news!

Still, it's no surprise. I think it's a publicity stunt that went further than either of them thought, and now they are scrambling to get out of it.

Sounds to me like she has a "happiest day of my life" about every couple of years! The last one, Chris, the one that was on the I'm a celebrity, get me out of here reality show seemed like a really good guy! Wonder who it will be next year? Guess we will just have to wait and see who she is in a movie with next to find out!

Chris Judd, what a hottie, but he seemed to sensitive to me to handle J. But the other hunk on that show, which I'm guilty of watching, mainly for the hunk Tyson is it? Ahhhhh drool!

Marrige between two people who I honestly don't think that they love each other is PATHETIC, Like Maryanne I give it 3 months tops!
