Jennifer Lopez breaks down in tears as she REVEALS what husband Ben Affleck made her ‘see’ in herself in new documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told

51

Jennifer Lopez‘s The Greatest Love Story Never Told has received early rave reviews as critics praise the ‘raw and vulnerable’ offering.

The Prime Video doc is the third installment of her $20M media homage to her husband Ben Affleck, which includes the semi-autobiographical film, This Is Me… Now: A Love Story, chornicallingher highly scrutinised love life.

About The Film

The film, which was released earlier this week, was a dubbed a ‘musical rom-com action sci-fi’ that served as a visual accompaniment to her single, This Is Me… Now.

The companion piece was panned for its ‘truly chaotic’ plot, while others slammed the star for spending so much on the self-funded ‘vanity project’.

What People Say About The Film

However, the response so far to the third part of the project has been surprisingly positive in comparison, as critics branded the doc ‘compelling’, and say it ‘delivers precisely the revelatory perspective that its counterparts lack.’.

Those around J-Lo encouraged her to ditch the project, as many of her celebrity pals declined to be involved in her film and even her husband Ben tried to sway her.

Some Confessions She Made

While JLo is hellbent on declaring her love for Ben, she admits her husband is ‘uncomfortable’ being her muse, while the actor, 51, openly confesses he finds their moments together ‘sacred and special because it’s private’.

But, it looks like Ben and the others will be left eating their words following the release of the third and final part of the album-cycle media offensive.

This Is Me… Now: A Love Story, which currently has a 95 per cent score, on Rotten Tomatoes, was described as ‘indecently compelling, by The Times.

A review in the publication, which awarded it four stars, admitted: ‘It’s not quite warts and all: Lopez is far too canny a myth-maker for that. 

‘But it’s nonetheless a revealing reminder of the kinks and cracks that made the Bennifer saga so engrossing in the first place.’ 

People Love Its Rawness

Meanwhile, said Variety the in depth look at JLo’s life exposes ‘her ambitions, responsibilities and insecurities with a merciless but deeply rewarding rawness.’

The reviewer comments that the project – which originally had a budget of $30million reduced to $20million once the singer had to finance it herself – was ‘surprisingly candid’ for lifting the curtain on the struggles she had producing it.

While This Is Me.. Now: A Love Story was ill received by critics, the review stated that the ’emotional weight of the latter deepens the entertainment value of the former.’

The critic said: ‘Harnessing not just the drive that made her a superstar but the fragility (especially personal) inherent in its maintenance…

‘Jason Bergh’s film accomplishes something unexpected: offering audiences a truly new way to look at her.’

What Her Husband Made Her See in Herself

In the documentary, Jennifer burst into tears as she confessed what her husband made her see in herself was ‘moving’.

Welling up, she revealed: ‘What he said and what he saw in me, and what he made me believe about myself, only comes from love. 

‘Because nobody else could have made me see that about myself. It’s very moving.

‘Because I didn’t think much about myself and so the world didn’t think much of me. That lined up.’

She said of their reunion: ‘We’re totally different people now and we’re the same and we have the same love 100 percent. Like I’d never fallen out of love with you. I had to just put it over here.’
