Surprise! Ben Affleck ended up joining Jennifer Lopez at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday (September 13) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The 49-year-old actor suited up in a tuxedo and joined his 52-year-old superstar girlfriend inside to continue their night. Ben and Just kissed for the cameras while posing for pics together (while wearing their face masks). Cute!
Everyone thought Ben Affleck was going to be skipping the Met Gala this year for one reason specifically.
The annual Costume Institute Gala is the fashion world’s equivalent of the Oscars and the event is usually held on the first Monday of May, but it was postponed until September 2021 due to the pandemic. The theme this year is “In America” and there will be a two-part exhibit with the second part debuting at next year’s Met Gala.
FYI: Jennifer is wearing Ralph Lauren.
