TMZ claim Ben penned an email to Jen about ‘how beautiful she looked’ while filming the movie, after pictures emerged of her shooting wedding scenes with her co-star Josh Duhamel. 

He is also reported to have said he wished he could have been in the Dominican Republic too, but was filming The Tender Bar in Boston with George Clooney.

The pair are said to have continued communicating until Jennifer wrapped up filming in late April.

The publication claim Ben wrote in one of him emails about being able to ‘own J-Lo’s heart’ with his pen after she gushed about his writing. 

There is no suggestion the pair were romantically linked at this time. Jennifer was engaged to Alex Rodriguez, 45, but the pair officially announced their split on April 15.

MailOnline has contacted Ben and Jennifer’s representatives for comment.

It comes amid swirling rumours the former couple are back on after Ben whisked Jen away on a private jet this past weekend for a romantic getaway trip to a luxury ski resort in Montana, where the actor is understood to own a chalet. 

Sources have claimed to E! that the pair spent ‘about a week’ together at the club, and they ‘were alone’ during their stay. They arrived back in LA on Saturday. 

It is the second time Ben and Jennifer have been spotted together in just over a week.

The former celebrity couple – who were engaged in 2002 but postponed their 2003 wedding and officially split in 2004 – have been seen reuniting with one another following JLo’s split with ex-fiancé Alex, and the revelation that Ben has been an active user on the celebrity dating app Raya. 

Both stars took part in the Vax Live concert in LA that was filmed on May 2, with Jennifer putting on a show-stopping performance in one of her trademark skimpy outfits, while Ben took to the stage with Jimmy Kimmel.   

Talking about their getaway, a source told PEOPLE on Monday: ‘[Jennifer] spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It’s all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy.’

Things certainly seemed to have gone well between the former couple as another source added for People later that day: ‘She had a great time with Ben. She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him.’

Known as ‘Bennifer’ at the time of their romance, recent reports have suggested that the pair are now ‘just friends,’ though it certainly appears that they have grown much closer over the past few weeks.

Last month, Ben was seen arriving at Jennifer’s home in a white Escalade SUV that is said to belong to the Hustlers star. He was later seen being dropped off by the singer’s security. 

It was reported that the pair had seen each other on three separate occasions during that time, with the Gone Girl actor leaving his car at the Hotel Bel-Air and being picked up in Jennifer’s vehicle hours later.

Lopez and Affleck started dating in 2002 and announced their engagement that November. In September 2003, just days before the couple was to say ‘I do,’ they called off their wedding. Months later the couple broke up for good in January 2004.

It has previously been reported that Montana is somewhere Affleck likes to go when he needs to ‘clear his head’ and once took one-time girlfriend there, Playboy model Shauna Sexton, after finalizing his divorce from Garner, 49, in 2018, after their ten-year marriage.
