Ben Affleck cosies up to Jennifer Lopez in the back of a car while puffing on a cigarette before signing Batman merch for fans at a red light
They were spotted holding hands as they made their way to the screening of his new film The Tender Bar in LA on Sunday.
And once the credits rolled, star Ben Affleck and his on-again girlfriend Jennifer Lopez hopped into the back of a car and were whisked from the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.
Ben, 49, cosied up to JLo, 52, in the back seat and sweetly leaned out of the window to sign Batman merchandise for fans while puffing on a cigarette when the vehicle came to a halt at a red light.

Ben looked dapper in a dark suit and blue shirt.
Sitting to Oscar-winning star’s right was hit-maker JLo, who wore her glossy blonde hair loose.
The Hustlers star watched on as her partner autographed his fans’ belongings.
The loved-up couple had been at a screening for Ben’s upcoming flick The Tender Bar, which was directed by George Clooney and co-stars Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe and Christopher Lloyd.

Sherdian stars as J. R. Moehringer, the novelist and journalist who wrote the memoir the film is based on.
In the film, he bonds with his bar tender uncle (Affleck) as a substitute for his absent father, who left when he was just a baby.
Ben filmed The Tender Bar from February through April of this year.
According to TMZ, he got back in touch with Jennifer in February while he was filming and began sending her ‘loving and longing’ emails while she was on set filming.

It’s unclear if she and her former fiancé Alex were together at that time, or just keeping up appearances, but she continued responding back and forth through the duration for the shoot.
In April, Ben was seen driving to a hotel, only to be picked up in Jennifer’s SUV and taken to her home in LA for them to spend time together.
The two kicked things up a notch in May with a week-long trip to snow Montana, and then followed that one up with another trip to Miami, where she and her family were based at the time.

It wasn’t until June that the renewed lovers were spotted kissing at a birthday party for Jennifer’s sister Lynda Lopez.
They repeated the gesture in a steamy set of photos in June to mark the singer’s 52nd birthday.
In recent weeks the couple have been seen touring houses around Los Angeles, and Jennifer’s kids are reportedly comfortable with Ben and up for a move back to the West Coast.
The couple had previously dated in the early 2000s and had been engaged from 2002 until early 2004, before separating.
