Ben Affleck has a reason to celebrate, and Jennifer Lopez is right by his side making a show of support for her hubby.

The two were in attendance Monday night at the premiere of Air, which Ben along with his longtime friend and collaborator Matt Damon produced and starred in.

The world premiere was hosted at the Regency Theatre in Los Angeles, and aside from the famous couple, it had a star-studded guest list including Matt and his own family, Viola Davis – she stars as Michael Jordan's mom, Deloris Jordan – Tiffany Hadish, former Victoria's Secret model Ariana Lima, Marlon Wayans, and more.

For the highly-anticipated premiere, Jennifer donned a stunning Antonio Grimaldi gown, which featured a form-fitting, neon green skirt with a bejeweled, mesh long-sleeve top. She was styled by her longtime stylists, duo Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi. Meanwhile, Ben looked dapper as ever in a Thom Sweeney ensemble, consisting of a velvet, double-breasted jacket in navy, layered over a light blue button-down and paired with a navy tie and matching pants.

Air tells the story of sports marketing executive Sonny Vaccaro (Matt) and Nike co-founder Phil Knight (Ben) and their quest to make Michael Jordan, as well as the now iconic Air Jordan shoes, the face of the Nike brand.

The film marks the Good Will Hunting actors' very first project from their newly founded production company, Artists Equity. What's more, while doing press junkets for Air, they revealed they are already working on their second project, and that none other than J.Lo herself will star in it.

Sharing details of the movie in the works during an appearance on CBS News, Ben said: "We're just getting rolling on working again with Amazon, to do the story of a wrestler named Anthony Robles, who was born with one leg and won a National Championship for Arizona State."

When asked about the rumors of his multi-hyphenate wife's participation, he first attempted to keep it under wraps, simply saying: "We always hire the very best performers. And in this case, I can say every single person that's been cast so far I think is the very absolute best choice."

However, he eventually relented, confirming: "Yes, I believe Jennifer Lopez may be doing that movie." Once he confirmed the news, he couldn't help but gush over his wife, and even cheekily admitted: "Can't make it look like she's doing it as a favor to me, but actually she is." Ben then detailed what a major perk it was to get to work with his wife, endearingly adding: "What fun, what a joy to do something with her, see her be great, go to work with your wife, go to work with your best friend."

He further said: "Because ultimately, like, your work becomes the lion's share of what defines your life, in terms of the time you spend. And if you don't like who you're working with, and if you have difficulty or trouble at work, I think it's one of the things that can really cause depression, anxiety and pain for people."
