Ben Affleck has not let all the publicity around his relationship with Jennifer Lopez hinder his work. “I sort of block it out just in general. I don’t read those magazines,” he tells the CBS Early Show. “I never did. I always wondered who is out there reading, like, Bat Boy is Back or the alien stories in the supermarket or the ones where they make up some spat between some couple. Now I see people in the supermarket checking out the tabloids and I’m like, ‘don’t read that! Don’t give them your money!’” And yet it is not just in tabloids. He says, “It seems weird, a little bit embarrassing, because it seems like an awful lot of attention for not much, really. I sort of try to ignore. My sense is that it’s subsided now and it is nice to be promoting a movie that I really like, that’s really good. And I feel like there’s only so much more you can say about Jen and I, and life kind of goes on.” Watch the interview here.
