Video clip - 'Jenny From The Block' APTN File - US, Recent 2. Jennifer Lopez with Cris Judd 3. Ben Affleck AFFLECK AND J-LO TO WED Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez confirmed rumours that she's engaged to actor Ben Affleck in an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer set to air on Wednesday evening on US television. The couple, who have been photographed kissing over the past few months, were recently engaged in a "traditional, but also in a very spectacular way," Lopez says. The couple met last winter while shooting the movie 'Gigli,' in which Lopez plays a gangster sent to supervise a thug, played by Affleck, in a kidnapping. She describes Affleck as "brilliantly smart," charming and affectionate. "My mother loves Ben," she adds. The ABC interview was taped recently in Manhattan and in Lopez's old Bronx neighbourhood. Lopez didn't mention a wedding date, but the couple could tie the knot on Valentine's Day, according to friends and sources quoted in the November 18th issue of People magazine. Affleck, 30, who was once engaged to Gwyneth Paltrow, has never been married. Lopez, 32, has had two previous marriages. She split from model-restaurateur Ojani Noa in 1998 after about a year and this summer ended a 10-month marriage to dancer Cris Judd. That divorce becomes final on January 26. The video from Lopez's new single 'Jenny On The Block' features Affleck in a cheeky take on the media's endless quest for footage of the pair together.

NVS0069 Subject: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez LA Ben Affleck Award (10/15/03) APTN - 388797 01:00:00 BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA - Show clip of director/producer Kevin Smith presenting award to Ben Affleck. SOUNDBITE Kevin Smith: "Ladies and gentlemen it is my pleasure to introduce you to the only man I would ever consider taking a bullet for, my hero, Ben Affleck." SOUNDBITE Ben Affleck: "Thank you Kevin. I thought this was quite a serious political occasion and I so I prepared so remarks that were sort of serious and not about how well hung I am, although that is what I should win an award for to be perfectly honest because this seems a little ridiculous to me. I wasn't a champion of little league, much less a champion of the American way although it sounds good in its own way, it's deliberately vague, they were like 'The Dixie Chicks defended democracy, Skip gave people a lot of money, Affleck, what is he? Well the cameras will show up, but what can we call his award?'" 01:01:22 BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA - Show clip of Ben Affleck acceptance speech. SOUNDBITE Ben Affleck: "Anyway it is an honour to attend an event put together by such distinguished and accomplished people and it is an embarrassment to be honoured by such a group. I'm embarrassed because I am being honoured by people who have done so much better and who have done so much more than I have when it comes to contributing to society and improving the lives of others. I only except it in the hopes that the absurd amounts of publicity that I received lately, that as far as I can tell is chiefly because I have a pretty girlfriend, that's what I did, I am a champion of the American way with a pretty girlfriend. bring it on, paparazzi, News at 11. In the hopes that some of that publicity might be pointed at something more significant, something more positive, productive and meaningful. I've always admired people for the American way, they are a group of people, many of who are successful and accomplished and who can chose to continue living a blessed life, but instead have chosen to give their time and money in an effort to protect that basic of our civil rights, freedom."

They are definitely my favourite and after doing 'The Wedding Planner' I really wanted to do another one. (Reporter : Also you borrow the outfit from somebody, do you ever worry that someone is going to do that to you? Because you are a prime target. You have probably got loads of lovely clothes? ) SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "They could take my clothes and I probably wouldn't even notice. No, I think I could be a target for them I'm sure. " (Reporter: Has you attitude changed towards maids since you made this film?) SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "You know it absolutely gave me more of an appreciation. Because you go into hotels, and I work a lot and so I'm in and out of the hotel, you are not really paying attention to everything going on around you. After I did this movie I am like 'oh my God so much work goes into making a hotel run'. So it definitely gave me a better appreciation of it. (Reporter: Are you now known as Jennifer Lopez or J-Lo? ) SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "You know, it was always Jennifer Lopez, I just named my second album J-Lo and it kind of stuck, people took a liking to it and I don't mind. You called me Jennifer, somebody called me J-LO, call me Jenny, it's all fine." (Reporter: Will you change your name when you get married?) SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "Yes, yes I will.

Entertainment: DareDevil (2/3/03) APTN - 362286 01:08:45 SOT Ben Affleck: "It was fun, this was a character that I've loved since I was a kid. I was really excited to play it. I would have probably never had played a super hero had they not made a movie version of this particular guy. When they did I felt like I couldn't pass it up. It's a different kind of picture, it's a comic book picture and that means a different thing. Within that genre this is probably the most realistic, grey, sexy version of that movie. That's one of the reasons that I was attracted to it. It's an interesting exercise in whether or not you can straddle the line of these two tones."

We have been deliberating for a couple of days about who is going to be the winner of the contest, so we have been working up the hill for about 48 hours , so this is kind of a rude awakening...Well I think this place is about independent film and this contest is about independent films. It was really nice that they let us come her last year and end our show here last year and for Pete to show his movie here last year. So it seemed like the right place to kick off the season." SOT Ben Affleck: "It is always special for me because I had 'Chasing Amy' up here, the first movie that I did that I was really proud of and so this is great. I remember what that felt like, that I was in something that people saw. I am really, really excited by the prospect of all the really talented people that applied this year. I think we are going to make a really good movie with 'Project Green Light' this year. That is the most exciting thing.

SOT Jennifer Lopez: "I think it's the one that I probably most like and can relate to the most because she lives in the Bronx and grew up there and I know what that is and I know what it is to live there and get on the train and go to work every day, I used to work in a bank and still want more, have dreams and be kind of afraid to take the risk and then go for it. So, I so understood everything that was going on inside of her." 01:12:38 NEW YORK - SOT Jennifer Lopez: "What I realise is that I really do have to keep a balance, I have to give a certain amount of time to the movies and then I have to do the music and give time to that. Everybody has been asking me are you going on tour. It's such a long commitment that I would be away from movies for so long, so it's hard to juggle it and I don't ever want to cheat one for the other because they are both so important to me." 01:12:59 NEW YORK - Close up ring on Lopez's finger. Ben Affleck. SOT Jennifer Lopez: "I just think that it is a message of hope, if anything. In a romantic comedy what you really want to do is go away smiling and have fun with the movie but at the same time when a movie like this it touches on a few little themes and social issues in the world, you want them to have hope." Various of Lopez on set. Entertainment: Maid in Manhattan (12/11/02) APTN - 357823 01:13:28 NEW YORK - SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "It's funny I was sitting in the apartment of a friend of mine who happens to be the producer on this movie, Elaine Goldsmith Thomas, and she told me that they had this script at her company and they wanted to do it and she was like I think it could be a really good idea, what do you think. We started brainstorming and I was like well she should be from one of the outer boroughs because those are the people that come in and travel and work in the city and blah, blah, blah, and it's such a different world. She was like wow all those dynamics, what's that like, if we could capture all that. That was the appeal, the fact that it was something based in reality for me." 01:14:08 NEW YORK - SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "I think people are saying that this is like a fairy tale or Cinderella story but I see it more as a working girl movie but in the romantic comedy genre." 01:14:25 NEW YORK - SOUNDBITE Jennifer Lopez: "He's an amazing actor obviously and for me to work with him was wow, OK, cool, he wants to do it, that's nice. You wouldn't think of him on this kind of movie either, this kind of genre, the romantic comedy, he's never really done anything like that so I think for him too it was challenging as well. You would think for him it would be kind of er, but no, it's a whole different animal." Entertainment: UK Versace arrivals (10/14/02) APTN - 352704 01:14:53 LONDON - Wide shot dresses.

Entertainment: US / Enough (8/23/02) APTN - 348029 01:15:03 NEW YORK - SOT Jennifer Lopez (on being able to relate to her character): " She is a girl who is guarded, finds Mr right, has this wonderful life and then that dream is shattered for her. And then she is living in this nightmare for a while. I think we all in our lives go through relationships that feel like that. So it wasn't hard for me to relate to. I don't think it would be hard for anyone to relate to. I think everybody has gone through things like that in their lives where they feel like this is not for me, I have got to take control of the situation, I have got to do something."

SOT: Jennifer Lopez - "I 'm very excited to have you here tonight as we unveil my new fragrance. I wanted to take just a couple of minutes to say a few words about what we created. As we developed this fragrance, I wanted women to wear it kind of effortlessly. You know, I wanted it to be fresh, I wanted it to be clean and of course, I wanted it to be sexy. I wanted this fragrance to embody the things that make women glow. Things like femininity and happiness and confidence and sensuality and I am very, very thrilled with the results. I think you guys are going to like it. Glow represents all the things in my life that make me happy. You know, scent can do that for you. Things that make me smile, things that make me feel warm and things that make me glow." SOT: Bernd Beetz (C.E.O. Coty Inc.) - "So, the fragrance development is a very complex development. There's a lot of force going back and forth. And she was always available, for each of the crossroads, for each development stage, she was there. Accessible, available and that gave us the chance, really, to get her into the project, to make her really reflect, in the project, what she wanted to do." B roll of Jennifer Lopez.

It deals with paranoia and also with real fear and also deals with the problems of nuclear proliferation and the danger of losing control of this arsenal." Set up shot Ben Affleck. SOT Ben Affleck: "That's a very loaded question isn't it? Well, I think that I know when we first made it I thought that it's going to be difficult to convince people of the relevance of this movie that this is a possibility, this is something that we have to be concerned about. And now somehow it's almost too relevant in some ways, almost too close to what's going on in the world. And so that's a strange thing and it happened after the movie had already been shot. And I think I feel about being the star of movie or one of the actors in the movie I feel comfortable in that I feel that the movie was done tastefully and intelligently and in the spirit of the cautionary tale tone that the novel was written in." Crowd cutaway. UPSOUND Ben Affleck talking about real CIA analysts: "So it was a curious thing for me.

Crowd reaction. Ben Affleck and Phil Alden Robinson playing on red carpet. Set up shot Phil Alden Robinson.

It's truly an a magnificant thing that we come such a long way and I think that ultimately is the message of this movie." Wide shot stage. SOUNDBITE (English): Ben Affleck, actor, Pearl Harbor: "I want to thank all of you who have welcomed us, who have been so hospitable to us during the course of our visit. Japanese audiences are known throughout the world to be some of the most avid and enthusiastic, knowledgeable movie-goers which is why it is such an honour to see all of you come out to see our movie.

Jennifer Lopez sensationally announced tonight , at the premiere of her new film, that she would be dropping her name Lopez to become Mrs Jennifer Affleck when she marries her fiance, movie star Ben Affleck. Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes stepped out in London this evening (Wednesday 26th February) for the premiere of J-Lo's new romantic comedy "Maid in Manhattan" however her declaration seemed to bely the fact that her own real life love story was the main thing on her mind. Jennifer Lopez and her fellow film star Ben Affleck announced their engagement in December last year. At the time J-Lo said she expected attention to wane once the couple had confirmed their intentions (despite including Affleck in her latest video 'Jenny From The Block' ) but instead fans and press are still fascinated. In her new romantic comedy Lopez plays Marisa Ventura, a single mother born and bred in the boroughs of New York City, who works as a maid in a first-class Manhattan hotel. The tale co-stars RALPH FIENNES in his first romantic comedy, with a supporting cast that includes Natasha Richardson, Bob Hoskins and Stanley Tucci. The story unfolds as Lopezs' character is persuaded one day by a friend and colleague to try on a guest's beautiful wardrobe - and she is still dressed in luxury clothes when another hotel guest walks into the suite. By this twist of fate and mistaken identity, Marisa meets Christopher Marshall (played by Ralph Fiennes), a handsome heir to a political dynasty, who believes that she is a guest at the hotel. Fate steps in and throws the unlikely pair together for one night. When Marisa's true identity is revealed, the two find that they are worlds apart - even though the distance separating them is just a subway ride between Manhattan and the Bronx. J-Lo was on board from the very beginning. She helped shape the plot with her friend and producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, while the movie was still just an idea.

The actress and singer explained that, unlike her relationship with SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS and short-lived marriage to dancer CRIS JUDD, she was unable to keep the "fire" at a distance when it came to her new fiancee and 'Gigli' co-star. The couple, who have been photographed kissing over the past few months, were recently engaged in a "traditional, but also in a very spectacular way," Lopez says. The couple met last winter while shooting the movie 'Gigli,' in which Lopez plays a gangster sent to supervise a thug, played by Affleck, in a kidnapping. She describes Affleck as "brilliantly smart," charming and affectionate. "My mother loves Ben," she adds. But she admitted that before she met him she thought he was just another arrogant star who had too many girlfriends. The ABC interview was taped recently in Manhattan and in Lopez's old Bronx neighbourhood. Lopez didn't mention a wedding date, but the couple could tie the knot on Valentine's Day, according to friends and sources quoted in the November 18th issue of People magazine. Affleck, 30, who remains good friends with one-time lover GWYNETH PALTROW, has never been married. Lopez, 32, has had two previous marriages. She split from model-restaurateur Ojani Noa in 1998 after about a year and this summer ended a 10-month marriage to dancer Cris Judd. That divorce becomes final on January 26. The video from Lopez's new single 'Jenny On The Block' features Affleck in a cheeky take on the media's endless quest for footage of the pair together.

JENNIFER LOPEZ announced last night that she would be dropping Lopez to become Mrs Jennifer Affleck when she marries her movie star fiance BEN AFFLECK. Lopez made the comments at last night's (26FEB03) London premiere of her new romantic comedy 'Maid in Manhattan', where she was joined by co-stars RALPH FIENNES, NATASHA RICHARDSON and BOB HOSKINS. Lopez spent twenty minutes signing autographs for fans outside the Odeon cinema in her skin tight Yves St Laurent dress with plunging neckline. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck announced their engagement in December last year (2002) and J-Lo said she expected attention to wane once the couple had confirmed their intentions (despite including Affleck in her latest video 'Jenny From The Block' ) but fans and press remain hungry for every snippet of information about the couple. In her new romantic comedy Lopez plays Marisa Ventura, a single mother born and bred in the boroughs of New York City, who works as a maid in a first-class Manhattan hotel. The film sees Ralph Fiennes in his first romantic comedy with a supporting cast of stellar acting talent that includes Natasha Richardson, Bob Hoskins and Stanley Tucci. At the premiere Lopez was happy to pose for intimate pictures with Fiennes but when photographers asked her to stand with Natasha Richardson, both women froze and failed to look at, let alone touch, each other. Richardson, a serious theatre actress also making her rom-com debute in 'Maid In Manhattan', said she didn't get close to J-Lo on the set: "I don't know her very well, I didn't get to know her, I didn't socialise with her. I think she is a very busy woman and she doesn't have a chance to hang out with actors so..." In 'Maid in Manhattan' Lopez's character is persuaded one day by a friend and colleague to try on a guest's beautiful wardrobe - and she is still dressed in luxury clothes when another hotel guest walks into the suite. By this twist of fate and mistaken identity, Marisa meets Christopher Marshall (Fiennes), a handsome heir to a political dynasty, who believes that she is a guest at the hotel.

Clip video 'Play' Jennifer Lopez STORYLINE: JENNIFER LOPEZ SPLITS WITH MANAGEMENT TEAM Jennifer Lopez has parted company with ICM, after four years with the management agency. International Creative Management confirmed to APTN that the star is no longer with the agency, but declined to state whose decision was behind the split. The star has worked with several different ICM agents since 1998, but has been represented solely by president and vice chairman Ed Limato since he took her on as a client in June. On Monday night, Limato withdrew from personally representing Lopez, - reports claim he and others at the agency found the star to be frequently unavailable for consultation. Lopez left the agency on Tuesday. Industry insiders claim Lopez was given the push. An internal e-mail sent by Limato to staff, then leaked to the Daily Variety read: "We have decided that we no longer wish to represent Jennifer Lopez, and we have so informed her manager. " Sources confirm the reports in the trade press are correct - despite other claims that a spokeswoman for Lopez insists the decision was a mutual one. The singer has yet to sign up with a replacement. Talent agencies are vying to step in, but according to sources, while the star has been meeting with agencies over the last few months, she has not met with individual agents. Lopez will continue to be represented by Handprint Entertainment's Benny Medina and attorney Barry Hirsch, as will her newly launched Columbia Pictures based production company Nuyorican Prods. During the past four years, Lopez she has worked with four different business managers and two talent managers, one of which is her current partner Medina. The star has enjoyed huge success as a recording artist, selling millions of albums, but her attempts to cross over into acting have had mixed results. While Lopez starred in moderate box office hits 'The Cell' and 'The Wedding Planner' she also featured in less well received features including 'Angel Eyes' and 'Enough.' The star will soon be seen again on the big screen in December in Made in Manhattan" with Ralph Fiennes. More film releases are due next year, with "Gigi" and "Jersey Girl", both with real life boyfriend Ben Affleck. Jennifer Lopez releases her new album 'This Is Me... Then' in November.

The 30-year-old star of "The Sum of All Fears" and "Pearl Harbor" has been everywhere lately, mostly because of his romance with Lopez. After rampant speculation, and copious photos of them kissing in public, he and the singer-actress announced their engagement this month. They also co-star in the upcoming movies "Gigli" and "Jersey Girl." "I didn't need People magazine to tell me he's the sexiest man alive," Lopez said in the issue, which comes out Friday. "The difference between me and People magazine is that he'll still be the sexiest man alive in my eyes when he's 100 years old." The magazine says Affleck, who was paid £8 million for his new action thriller 'Daredevil' has "more than good looks". It notes his "plain old brains, that attractive but all too rare accessory of brawn and a $350,000 Bentley." Affleck is the 16th man to receive the magazine's honour. Last year it was James Bond star Pierce Brosnan, and previous winners include Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Mel Gibson and Brad Pitt. For former winners Clooney, Gibson and Cruise, there was some consolation. The ex ER star Clooney was awarded 'Sexiest Director', Minority Report star Cruise was named 'Sexiest Dad' and Australian actor Gibson won 'Sexiest Classic'. Britain's Hugh Grant, best known for his role as the bumbling Englishman in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' and 'Notting Hill' was awarded the title of 'Sexiest Import'. Other candidates for the Sexiest Man Alive title were a varied bunch including US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, 70, Briton Simon Cowell, 42, scathing judge from the Pop Idol series, rock star Bono, 42, from U2 and friends star Matthew Perry, 33.

And biggest of the lot had to be the union of 56-year old Cabaret singer Liza Minnelli and her 48-year-old toyboy, music producer David Gest. The A-listers invited to the ceremony included The Douglases, Anthony Hopkins, the recently hitched Joan Collins, Liz Taylor and Michael Jackson. Elvis fan Nicolas Cage acquired the ultimate piece of memorabilia when he married the King's daughter Lisa Marie Presley in Hawaii, but the pair split after just four months of wedded bliss citing irreconcilable differences. It'a so far so good for Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar and her new husband Freddie Prinze Junior who were married on a Mexican hilltop in September in a low key ceremony. Which is more than can be said for the nuptials of Sir Paul McCartney and his bride, model Heather Mills. Although essentially a family affair the press were out in force to see this pair tie the knot. Former Beatles drummer Ringo Star was amongst the guests flown to the Irish castle where the pair made their vows and after a night of partying guests were treated to a huge firework display. 2002 also saw new additions for celebrity couples. Sex in The City star Sarah Jessica Parker showed off little David Perkins Broderick courtesy of husband Matthew. Meanwhile Liz Hurley also had a public pregnancy, giving birth to a son, Damien, but needed a DNA test to establish that US Millionaire Steve Bing was the father. Tomb raider star Angelina Jolie and partner Billy Bob Thornton chose adoption, before the couple split over Thornton's infidelity and Angelina was left holding the baby. Ending this years break-ups is Jennifer Lopez who managed ten months with her second husband, dancer Cris Judd. She has however found new love with actor Ben Affleck whom she plans to marry next year just as soon as her divorce comes through. US superstar Nelly was rumoured to have got together with Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child, which was convenient seeing as it coincided with the pair's hit duet. The same thing happened for fellow Destiny's Child member Beyonce and Jay Z making the authenticity of these celebrity couplings a little dubious. Rod Stewart's ex, New Zealand model Rachel Hunter, shacked up with cheeky chappie of pop, Robbie Williams. Rod was even big enough to wish her luck with her toy boy. Ally McBeal star Calista Flockhart chose to go for the maturer man when she stepped out with Harrison Ford and Gwyneth Paltrow ended her dry spell by moaning British men didn't ask her out. She later issued a correction and Coldplay's Chris Martin stepped up. However rumours claim that this fizzled out fairly swiftly and she's now aquired a Royal beau.
