Jennifer Lopez revealed that he had post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) before his wedding to Ben Affleck recalling their past breakup in 2004.
The Marry Me star opened up about her Las Vegas nuptials during her recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her film Shotgun Wedding.
Lopez revealed why she and the Argo star had to elope for an intimate wedding before their big Georgia wedding with friends and family.
“We were planning to get married in August in Savannah [Georgia]”said the mother of twins and stepmother of three children. “And she was very stressful.”
“And a month before… and I don’t know if you guys know this, but 20 years ago we were supposed to get married and it all fell apart back then and this time we had a bit of PTSD.”
She added that the planning was so stressful that one day Affleck said, “‘(expletive), let’s go to Vegas and get married tonight.'”
The duo then exchanged vows at A Little White Wedding Chapel. “It was amazing, it was the best night of our lives,” she said of the Sin City wedding.
The host then asked her about the celebrity acronym Bennifer and if she liked it, to which Lopez said that she had grown to love it over time.
“Actually, it wasn’t a bad thing even years ago, but I think it became something people made fun of,” he said.
