Their love story is one for the ages. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez fought against all odds and found their way back to each other after all those years apart. Ever since they finally tied the knot in July 2022, the world has desperately wanted an insightful peek into their high-profile marriage. Although there has been plenty of paparazzi footage, the two have kept their lips mostly closed regarding their relationship. As part of the promotional circuit for his latest movie Air, Affleck is finally lifting the lid and giving us a taster of their hilarious banter-filled relationship.

During Friday's episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, Affleck, who appeared over a video call, was subjected to a round of quick-fire questions. No topic was off limits as the director and actor was pressed on the inner details of his life and career. Keeping things straightforward with his answers, Ben took things in a lighter direction when asked this specific question relating to his superstar wife. "If we asked your beautiful wife if there was one thing she could change about you, what would it be?" Drew asked.

Hilariously, it didn't take long for the Good Will Hunting actor to come up with an answer, suggesting he'd given this topic some thought in the past. "She would probably want to cultivate brevity in the way I speak," Affleck said of Lopez. "I don't know if you've noticed, but I go on and on and on. I talk in circles. She's never said that to me, but that would be my guess," he explained.

Making the most of Ben's candid nature, Drew posed her next revealing question to the movie star. "When was the last time you went skinny dipping?" she said to the audience's cheers. "My wife and I went on a little vacation recently; we went in the pool — I don't know if that counts as skinny dipping. It wasn't, like, an '80s college movie or anything." Well, were you naked?" the host prompted. "We were naked in the pool, yes," he laughed. You know what they say! Couples that laugh together last together!
