January 18, 2004 – The Sunday Mirror reports Ben Affleck tried to duck out of sight behind pal Matt Damon when he was snapped chatting up the beauties at Berlin nightclub 90 Grad, all while Ben’s fiance Jennifer Lopez was back in America. One of the club girls, 19-year-old Klara Seewalkd, said: “Matt was so cute. He said he liked to cut loose after being on set and was thrilled that Ben was in town to join him. He said he liked coming to Europe because he found the girls ‘less complicated than Hollywood chicks’ and that people in general had a cool outlook. He was very nice and friendly – but Ben wasn’t so approachable. I had a quick drink with him and said, ‘Hey, so what’s the latest with J.Lo?’ He just glared and said, ‘She’s off the conversation, if you don’t mind’.”
