She may be a celebrity in her own right, but that doesn’t mean Jennifer Lawrence isn’t interested in the romantic lives of her fellow stars.
The 30-year-old Academy Award winner was appearing on the comedy podcast The B**** Bible when she was stunned to discover that Ben Affleck appeared to have reunited with his former fiancée Jennifer Lopez.
The Silver Linings Playbook star was so overcome by excitement that she had to interrupt the episode, which was released on Thursday.

Midway through the episode, Jennifer took it upon herself to interrupt with the breaking news that Ben and Jennifer had been spotted together.
‘Breaking f***ing news. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are back together. They’re on vacation! They are on vacation with each other right now,’ she said emphatically.
She was presumably recording the podcast on Monday, when photos from Saturday, May 8 were first revealed showing Ben and Jennifer in an SUV together after spending a week together in Montana.
Jennifer then sang the phrase ‘Click the link in bio,’ suggesting she first saw the news on Instagram.

During her appearance on The B**** Bible, Jennifer was jokingly called Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Garner throughout the episode, so the hosts used that to their advantage.
‘Wait a minute, this is crazy! Jen Garner, how do you feel about this? How do you feel? You used to be married to the guy!’ joked one of the cohosts.
‘I’m so excited!’ she joked. ‘I’m so happy for them!’
Jennifer had a busy week, as she was also featured briefly on the Absolutely Not podcast.

Jennifer’s interesting in Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez comes as their alleged romance appears to be heating up.
The Hustlers star ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez in April, but she was already emailing back-and-forth with Ben at the time.
However, ‘It was friendly conversations and they didn’t make a plan behind Alex’s back that they would date,’ a source told People.
Despite the quick move, the new couple didn’t make plans to spend time together in-person until after Jennifer had ended her engagement.
‘She didn’t see Ben until it was over with Alex,’ the source added.

TMZ previously reported that Affleck had been sending Lopez emails dating back to February, when she filming her upcoming comedy film in the Dominican Republic.
The emails weren’t merely friendly, though, but apparently were filled with longing for the Waiting For Tonight singer.
On May 2, both stars made separate appearances at the Vax Live concert in LA, which addressed vaccine hesitancy and encouraged world leaders to focus on equity when distributing Covid-19 vaccines.
Shortly after, the two jetted off to Montana on a private jet, as Ben reportedly owns a chalet in the area.
The two were away for ‘about a week,’ according to E! News, and they ‘were alone’ for the duration of the trip.
