Life's good as far as Ben Affleck is concerned. The Hollywood actor recently sat down to fill us in on what he's been up to (you know, Blockbuster movies, red-carpet appearances - J.Lo). And from the sounds of it? Bennifer is better than ever. Here's what he had to say for himself.

On October 3, the Tender Bar star opened up to Extra TV about just how happy he is right now. "I’m very happy. It is a very happy time in my life. Life is good," Affleck proudly revealed. We wonder if that has anything to do with a special somebody. (Psst, it does.)

But this isn't the first time the 49-year-old actor was caught up in his feelings. Back in September, Affleck wasted no time expressing his appreciation for his Mrs. "I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is," the actor confessed to Adweek of his girlfriend, which, well, same. "At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country."

In case you forgot, the two have been serving us major 2000s nostalgia ever since making things official this past year. And while their 2004 breakup still haunts us to this very day, we've got a feeling their rekindled romance won't share that same tragic ending. (Or at least, we certainly hope not.)

In fact, "Love is never more relevant than it is right now," J.Lo teased during a recent interview on the Today Show. From her and Ben's romantic getaways this past summer - including a trip to Italy and a lux yacht in the Mediterranean - to their red-carpet debut, if there's one thing to take away from this? Hollywood is full of surprises ( - just like these other stars who suddenly got back together with their exes.)

Might Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston be next? We certainly hope so. Stay tuned...
