Kate Winslet is one of the few people in the world to have little to say about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's rekindled romance. Over the past few weeks, Bennifer fans have gone wild over the news of their alleged relationship - 17 years after their high-profile split.

Although Jennifer, 51, and Ben, 48, are to comment on the nature of their friendship, the former lovers have been pictured out and about together on several occasions looking rather close.
