Ben Affleck looked light on his feet this weekend next to J Loand it might have to do with his new Michael Jordan movie…even if it’s not quite profitable yet.
The couple were spotted grabbing a bite to eat at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday, where they were both dressed in stylish clothes – BA wore a beige sweater with jeans and matching sneakers to complete the ensemble . Nikes, in particular, beware.
Jen, meanwhile, wore a colorful Springtime sundress and high heel boots.
It’s Ben you need to focus on, though, because the dude absolutely shines…shining the dads pulling them and giving his step a bit more pep. The question…why the hell is he so happy to consider his long grumpy streak???

Besides being married to Jennifer, he has plenty to be happy about…including his latest movie, “Air,” which hit theaters this week to stellar reviews and excellent word of mouth. By most accounts, it’s the first big movie of 2023 and a crowd pleaser.
The only (potential) problem is that ‘Air’ isn’t poised to be a box office hit – especially as it takes on Mario & Co., who takes the No. 1 spot this weekend. a mile.
Although his movie is poised to make around $20 million through Sunday — depending on which projections you’re looking at — it would have cost a fortune to make… around $90 million, according to Variety. With that kind of budget, it’s hard to say if Amazon Studios will recoup its investment in the near term…but it’s also hard to say what will be considered a W here.
‘Air’ is Ben and Matt Damonthe first project from their new production company, where they share the wealth, and more… this film was made with a streaming mentality, even though it was initially released in theaters. So the formula for success on this one is flawed.
Considering just about everyone digs ‘Air’…this could be a win for Ben either way. Dude shot a Phil Knight in Hollywood, and the gamble could well pay off in the long run.
