‘I hope it’s real,’ Matt Damon says of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance.

The actor appeared on the TODAY show on Tuesday morning to discuss the news that the previously engaged couple has been hanging out again. When Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb asked him about it, he joked, “There’s not enough liquor in the world to get me to say anything about that.” Damon described the news as “fascinating” and admitted that he hopes it is real.

“I adore them both, and I sincerely hope it’s real. That would be incredible,” he said. Affleck and Lopez were spotted vacationing together in Montana over the weekend, according to photos obtained by the Daily Mail. The two were seen getting off a private plane and then driving together in an SUV, with Affleck in the driver’s seat and Lopez in the passenger seat.

On Monday, a source told Us Weekly, “Ben and Jen spent some days together in Montana.” “They were on holiday together, just the two of them. Ben holds Big Sky in high regard.” On the tour, they “looked really happy together,” according to the source. They were also seen hanging out together in Los Angeles last week.

From 2002 to 2004, the 51-year-old singer-actress and 48-year-old actor-director were together. After four years together, Lopez called off her engagement to former Major League Baseball player Alex Rodriguez in April. In January, Affleck ended his relationship with actress Ana de Armas.

Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony have 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, while Affleck has three children with ex-wife Jennifer Garner: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.
