Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck hit the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival on Friday, marking their public debut as a couple.

Jen and Ben rekindled their romance earlier in 2021 and walked the red carpet together for the premiere of Ben's new film The Last Duel.

He stars alongside Matt Damon, and Matt and his wife Luciano joined the pair, marking the first time Jen and Ben have been pictured with the actor's best friend since their romance kickstarted.

The two couldn't stop smiling

Jen wore a stunning white gown with bold embellished detailing by Georges Hobeika, and paired it with Jimmy Choo heels and gorgeous jewellery by Cartier.

As they posed together, they kept a close hold of each other and at one point kissed for the cameras.

Jen and Ben - also known as Bennifer - are said to have rekindled their romance shortly after J-Lo separated from former fiancé Alex Rodriguez in April, and have been inseparable ever since.

Their red carpet debut came almost 17 years after they split

The famous exes were previously engaged in 2002, and also appeared in Jersey Girl together, while the Pearl Harbor actor featured in his then-girlfriend's official music video for Jenny from the Block.

However, they ended their romance in early 2004 due to excessive media attention

They went Instagram official in late July, with Jen celebrating her 52nd birthday by sharing a steamy kiss with Ben on a yacht.
