Ben Affleck is still in touch with ex Jennifer Lopez

The actor and director reveals they still 'touch base'

They dated for two years between 2002 and 2004 and even got engaged, but there's no bad blood between Affleck and ex fiancée Jennifer Lopez.

"We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice," the actor said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter "But we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, 'Oh, your movie looks great'

"I touch base. I respect her. I like her" continued Affleck "She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful."

The friendship doesn't bother the actor's wife, Jennifer Garner.
"She doesn't have ill will for any person. She's not competitive with other people. She's not spiteful" concluded the star.
