Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance is heating up the entertainment press, and a recent magazine cover accidentally looks like a scene from Affleck’s movie Missing girl. The 2014 mystery thriller is based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel of the same title. Affleck starred alongside Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne, a seemingly perfect American couple until Amy suddenly disappeared and Nick became the prime suspect in her disappearance. Missing girl went on to become a box office hit and critical success, receiving numerous awards and nominations.
In the film, Amy’s mysterious disappearance became a hot topic in the news. She was portrayed as an ideal bride as Nick’s motives and loyalty were called into question. In the end, it was revealed that Amy had it all planned out after finding out that her husband was having an affair. She planned a dramatic comeback to ensure it would be followed and publicized by the media. A scene briefly flashed a In touch magazine cover featuring Nick and Amy with the headline: “A Second Chance at Love!”
Interestingly, the last People The magazine’s cover for its August 2 issue with Affleck and Lopez bears the same title. Twitter user Matt Sullivan pointed out the spooky resemblance of the two magazine covers by displaying them side by side. Like fiction In touch cover for Missing girl, the People the cover features a photo of the famous couple with the words in bold: Ben and J.Lo 17 years later … A second chance in love!
Another odd but unsettling detail is how Affleck’s half-smile on his recent magazine cover is very similar to that of his character in Missing girl. In the movie, Nick gave a confusing smile during a press conference for his missing wife Amy. This distorted expression became a talking point for the rest of the film as she further explored Nick’s character. Affleck gave a solid performance as a sour husband and womanizer with many critics praising his credible acting style.
Of course, the 48-year-old actor is no stranger to being the targets of tabloid news and paparazzi. Their brief relationship with Lopez earned them the nickname “Bennifer,” and they were some of the most-photographed couples at the peak of their romance in the early 2000s. It didn’t help that the two starred in the romantic comedy. from 2003 Gigli, that bombed at the box office. While a lot has changed since then, the celebrity couple still attracts attention wherever they go. the Missing girl reference in their rekindled romance might be dismissed as an innocent coincidence or a curious case of life mimicking art.
